Mojo Monday #87

I can't believe it! I have finally entered one of Mojo Monday's sketch challenges! YAH!

I have used some left-overs from the Stamp-a-Stack I held this weekend. (Photos soon I promise) And I must admit that I am pretty stoked with this card YILM! LOL

I have used papers from the Bella Blue range and also Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy and Chocolate Chip. I have used a sentiment from the Level 1 Hostess set, Best Yet. Also Chocolate Chip wide ribbon and Not Quite Navy brads.

Leah's Monthy Challenge #8

Here is my entry to Leah's Monthly Challenge. She uses beautiful pictures for inspirational challenges. Pop on over and check it out.

Even though I have a WHOLE month to do the challenge, somehow I usually miss the deadline... What the?... How can that be? Well... I always think that I have PLENTY of time... and then it's passed!

But no, not this time:) Just made it though!!! LOL ... Maybe next time I will be more organised.... Or maybe NOT! ROFLOL!!!

Edited to add: I have used 'Petal Pizzaz' for the leaves and stems, 'A little Birthday Cheer' for the sentiment and I have used punches for the flowers. Hearts (Not SU) and DSP for the base flower and the '5 Petal Flower' punch and one of the flowers from the 'Spring Flower Bouquet' punch.

Late Challenge Card....

This is a card that I made for a Kristina Werner Colour Challenge No. 51. But I was too late :(

I got on the computer to enter it and saw that the 'Mr Linky' had closed so I sulked and put it aside for later LOL.

The funny thing is though that when I went back on I realised that I used the wrong colour! I was supposed to use Mustard and I used Pumpkin Pie - What the?.........

Simple but Sweet...

Here is a quick card I made up to send to someone who has in become a really good friend. It is made using one of the 'notes' cards and some left-overs. It is such a simple card and took no time at all to make but I really, really love it.

I have used 'Seeing Spots' and the hostess only stamp set, 'Best Yet' which I just LOVE!

May Workshop...

Hi all - Yes it's me again!!!! Workshop time again so everyone knows that I will be on then eh! Have to put on our creations that we made at the monthly workshops, right???
Anyway for this month we were making a 'Suspension Card'. I made a couple of these last year just for fun (why else do we do this you may ask?) and I love them!!!
So that is what we made this time......

You can find a great tutorial for Suspension Cards here on the greatest site EVER! Split Coast Stampers of course... Where I get majority of my inspiration from.
Then for our second card one of the girls wanted to try a card using vellum. So I cased this from a card that was sent to me ages ago by the lovely Kim (check out her blog here) who I finally got the pleasure of meeting at Convention. It is almost exactly the same as the one she sent me only colours and stamp sets are changed. It was such a simple, easy card to make, but so very effective don't you think....

And to finish off we made this cute little teabag holder. I have had a paper template for something similar to this for years but do you think I could find it to make this. So I have just just made the base how I think it should have gone and then decorated it how I liked.
I had a very quiet weekend this time with nearly everyone busy with something or other so I had quite a few away. But we had a great time the couple that could make it and then a couple of them stayed for the arvo since I had no-one else coming... Sooo....... I got out all my scraps and dumped them in the middle of the table (literally!) and we did Punch Art. I had gotten some pictures off Split Coast and we made owls, cows, sheep, reindeer and a hand bag. We had a ball!!!
I will put some photos of our creations on at a later date.....
