Mojo Monday: Nieces Birthday card

The Mojo Monday blog is always great for kick starting the week and I spent the morning crafting, producing my January Birthday requirements - 1 niece and 1 sister.....

and my take on the sketch:


I am making an effort to go back and use my old papers - stash level is quite scary and I still have so much of my favorites left! Love the pretty flowers and butterflies in this My Minds Eye paper.

Take a bow....Mojo Monday

One of the best things about holidays is the opportunity to get in my craft room - in the midst of a re-organisation and just have a play.  This card is for 2 challenges - Tiddly Inks 'Merry Berry' and Mojo Monday's sketch.


I used the Fuse tool to create the pocket for the shaker element and dug through my stash of sequins in reds and gold. With a bit of stitching and the cute sentiment I have my first Christmas card for NEXT year!!

Simon Says Winter Wonderland.....

I have wanted to play with this Die-namics 'Peek-a-boo Wonky Window' which arrived last week and thought that pairing it with Mama Elephants reindeer would be a good way to go!

Found the cloud paper in my stash while I was doing a major overhaul of my supplies - lots of my favorite papers that I was hoarding came to light...lol.  I used my new fuse tool to create the shaker window - so awesome!!!

Anyways...the inspiration for this card is the Simon Says Monday Challenge this week - Winter Wonderland - check out the design teams additions - love those pink Christmas trees!
