Note of Love

Hi everyone,

I've been really busy with the girl's end of year concerts, long work hours and christmas shopping.  I haven't  been able to get into making cards.  I had started several cards for challenges but missed the deadlines.  Oh well I am sure they will fit into a challenge somewhere in the new year.

Wow what a year! 
I have made it for the colour create challenge - burgundy, pink and ivory.  Wonderful colour that are very peaceful yet full of love.

It was funny  the way the hearts are on the card are how they fell when I punched them out.  It looked great in those positions.  The pink heart was hard to see so I outlined them with bravo burgundy SU marker and the white gel pen.
I used copics to colour TGF's wild sprout and the sentiment is from Stampin' UP!

As the girls are on holidays now and I am working through Christmas hopefully I will have time to make cards.  I will definately be making card in the new year as Santa in bringing me more copics and TGF stamps to colour in.  So I will be in heaven once again.

If I don't post before Xmas I hope you all have a safe and merry Christmas and that Santa is good to you all, and will see you in the new year!!

Mojo Monday - 116

Nothing like a good sketch to get the juices flowing.  I have the Designer Paper that I've been wanting to use but just didn't know what to do with it.   Now I do.

Below it the entry for the Mojo Monday sketch 116.

The paper is from petals and paisley SU DS and the image is from Hope & Grace series from The greeting farm. I used the Martha butterfly punch and glittered the wings.  I paper pierced the little patches on her pants with SU DS paper left overs, and coloured her in Copics and SU markers.  The bubbles are from the SU stamp set circus circles.

Hi everyone,

Congratulations to a very talented lady and someone who had supported the Monthly Card Challenge.

Unfortuneately I will not be continuing this challenge due to lack of interest.
Its funny I had visions of having to go through heaps of beautiful cards, but I guess its not to be.
Thank you to all that participated.

My Shoulder is still not up to crafting so I will be back on track hopefully soon.
