MOJO 268

Hi all,

Well its 11 pm.. and yes... I'm sitting in my little craft room creating away... (crazy, I know) Tonight's effort was this weeks Mojo Monday 268 Challenge. I finished work at 9 tonight... got home after 9.30 poured myself a glass of wine and disappeared into my little room of therapy.  I played with this card a bit before work this morning and just had to finish it.  I've been scrounging packaging that we were throwing out at work.. (paint tube packaging..) that was just too cool to throw out. You know how it is, the mind never shuts off... and you are constantly on the hunt for new materials!!! Some days I wish my brain would just slow down and be silent... but I guess that would be boring!! I quite often eyed off this packaging and thought.. mmm.. I could use that... and this is the finished product... this weeks Mojo Monday 268 Challenge...

First of all, the Sketch... and the card...




Well, its getting late so time for some zzzzzz's...
Till next time,

Take Care

Hi all...

The moment I saw this cute little Stampin' Up! 'Take Care' stamp set, I knew I had to have it!!! Soooo love the whole little nest factor. This card is pretty similar to the one pictured in the catalogue... but, why mess with perfection! Simple, sweet... Love It!!! Think you could adapt this to a 'baby / new arrival' card maybe with little pink or blue eggs... mmm... will have to get onto that...
I glossed up the googies with a bit of glossy accents for a some cool 3D action...




Well, thats it for now...
Till next time

'See a Penny, Pick it up...'


'See a Penny, pick it up... all the day you'll have good luck... blah, blah, blah...' you know how the saying goes... My son will definitely want to pick this Penny up... & he will definitely think he is having all the good luck. This is his 15th birthday card... and yes, he is getting a new 'Penny' Skateboard... not quite the same colour... (his is aqua with awesome purple wheels!) Just the thing to help his growing 'Scab Collection' covering his body!!!!! Well, there will be a few spills when you are 15 and want to try all the new tricks & stunts!!!! As I tell him constantly... if you come off, cover your mouth.. (he has braces that cost us a fortune!!!) I want the teeth to stay in your head... mmm... as you do...

Anyway, back to the card... It was a cool image compliments of 'google'... glossy accents on the wheels and screws.. a bit of stamping... using retired Stampin' Up! Extreme Elements Stamp Set... and there you have it... a 3D 'Penny' Card. The whole skateboard is built up with foam squares allowing me to shape the wheels... nice... Might do a few more versions of this card... it was fun to make... & you never see enough 'Boy' cards..





Well my gorgeous son... you are turning 15 on Monday... can't quite believe time has gone sooo fast!!! Enjoy the day beautiful Boy!!! I love you with all my heart... Mum xxx

More X-Mas...

Hi All...
Christmas continues... this card was a Mojo Monday 'reject' card that I couldn't quite chuck out! You know those cards.. the ones that when you look at you think 'Meh...' (Weird word my son says when something is neither good or bad... just Meh...) Well I quite liked the bauble I made so thought I would show you that bit... ditched all the yucky bits and was left with this... my head was pounding so the creative juices were not exactly flowing... might do a bit more to the background later when I can think straight... will post updated version if I do...



Well, time for some more pain killers.. mmm... sore head.... yuck....
Till next time,

X-Mas Penguins...

Hi De Ho...

Finally... got to make some cards!!! Yay!!!!! Fighting a monster sinus headache though.. things we do! I spent the morning with my gorgeous Sis... you know.. bit of carding... chatting... cuppa... chatting... little bit more carding.. chatting... etc, etc...

Anyway, these are some Christmas cards I did today. It proves you can make cards with little or no effort by using a cute 3D sticker, bit of glitter paper and hey presto. Very simple! These cute little Penguins are a from work.. It was love at first sight... mind you, I tend to say that to most of the cute stickers and scrapbook bits. I'm a sucker for new things!!!
