Mojo Monday # 101

I know its Friday, but it was on my to do list and never quite got to the top until this I have just made a little card 4"x4" so that I could use my circle punches. And the best part is I made it all out of the scraps I had close by. The DSP is out of 2 different packs urban garden and urban oasis. I just can't seen to go long without using one of the new sets out of the mini and because I never tidy up great friend was close by. I have had the clip assortment since the catty started and I don't think I have used it yet so I have added a piece of that so I can now say I have used it. he he. Check out the hundreds of entries here I bet they are all fantastic!!

Makeesha's Sketch # 12

I am abit behind on the challenges this week. But I had some time this morning and decided to do Makeesha's sketch challenge. Always is a set that I earned for free during the sale-a-bration earlier this year and I haven't used it much, I thought It would go great in the oval shape. I used the sweet always DSP and the matching colours Chocolate chip, regal rose and pink pirouette. I added a few 1/2 pearls and some felt flowers to finish it off. I always forget about the felt flowers I must put them somewhere I can see them so I use them abit more. Check out the other entries here. Fingers crossed I might have time to do Mojo Monday later today. Thanks for stopping by:)

Boxed card set

Where has the week gone I meant to post but we had Matts sister and family over from Perth. When I had free time we were seeing them so my stamping time was zero:( But it was great to see them all and spend time and get to know my nephew and niece!!! I got some time today and thought I would use up one of last years simply scrapping kits called secret garden. I loved the colours in this set and I never used much of it, so I made a dent in it today. I found some envelopes in my stash that were the same as always artichoke. Love it when that It didn't take long to whip up the cards, I just used all the stickers out of the kit. I didn't even ink up a stamp.he he. I also found some brads that matched in as well. The colours of the kit are aways artichoke, groovy guava, old olive and river rock. Well I'm off to ink up some stamps now I am having Thanks for stopping my!

Makeesha's colour challenge # 11

Well its official I have lost my mojo.weep weep. To post or not to post?, that was the question. But they are what they are. Anyway not sure what happened. The first photo is the first of the worst cards ever, then I pulled it apart a little (its amazing if you are careful how they can come Then it turned into the second card and I don't think its much better than the first. But that's what happens when you loose your mojo. Check out all the better entries here. Hope you are all having a great weekend:)

Swaps for my swap sister

These are the 2 projects I made for my UStamp swap sister Debbie Keane who lives in Virginia Beach, USA. I was in such a hurry to post them off that I forgot to take photos of them, these are the ones that Debbie took for me. First I decided to make a free standing calender something useful to use that you can put anywhere. Its hard to see from the photo that the bag is a double pocket bag . I made a matching card for one side and filled the other side with cadbury favorite's chocolates. I got a few requests for the instructions of the bag so here is a easy to follow tutorial.

Makeesha's sketch # 11

It felt great to escape to my craft room tonight! Its been a very busy weekend. Today was Keisha's 4th birthday and I was up early making the cake and getting things ready for when all her kindy friends came over for the party. People started arriving at 12.30pm and the last one left at 7.30pm. So escaping to my craft room was the end of a great but long day. At first I was going to tidy up but I soon forgot about that and started on Makeesha's sketch. I decided to try and use my off cuts for this card because they are piling up. I have used always artichoke, so saffron, and very vanilla. The DSP is out of le jardin(retired) and garden whimsy is the stamp set. Check out the other entries here.
Thanks for stopping by:)
