Mojo 221

Happy New Years Eve everyone.
It's nice to be back at my desk putting together a card....wasn't sure if my creative side was still on holiday. Hubby and I have just returned for a weeks break down the coast of Western Australia about 1000kms to Geraldton where we enjoyed a quiet Christmas on our own.
Anyway here's my card for this weeks MojoMonday - I wanted to make a soft coloured card for some reason maybe seeing my friend Vikki's cards she's made this week influenced me. ... thanks Mojo girls for the sketch and all the very best everyone, thanks for taking a peek.

Well after quite a few weeks I'm back at my desk....not sure if the mojo was with me but as the Lily Pad Card Exchange was in it's last few hours I thought I'd give it a go....and also took the opportunity to use the sketch from Deconstructing Jens challenge. Not my colour range but you have to step out of your comfort zone sometimes... :-)  Thanks for taking a peek

House Mouse challenge 107

At the last's my Autumn/Fall card for the House Mouse monthly challenge. I love Autumn and the beautiful colours so much that my mum includes autumn leaves in her letters as we don't get an autumn season living in the tropics.  Thanks for taking a peek.

The Shabby Tea Room challenge #86

Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend...I'm extra happy today as hubby flew in last night after being away for 16 days. I've made my card for the Shabby Tea Room challenge - Homespun fall using the wonderful colours in the pic above. Mine represents a wreath of autumn leaves for the front door and chose to use the words of the verse inside to say it all! Thanks for taking a peek

Our Creative Corner - Fancy Folds 2

Morning happy stampers....I just love making cards using different thanks OCC for this challenge what a coincidence as I was already making this card for my mums birthday - she'll be 81 on 11/11/11 - Happy Birthday Mum. I had started making another card which I'll finish today and post but ended up thinking it was a bit modern and I wanted something more pretty, feminine for mum. And I must thank Becca from Amazing Paper Grace for her tutorial for this pocket card  and of course her directions for bow making.

Thanks for taking a peek  ...  
And here's the first card I was putting together....

Our Creative Corner - Fancy Folds

I love this construction card too - I suppose you would call it a pull tag easel card...... :)   I must say I did have this card made but couldn't resist posting it on my blog...I have a plan to make another incorporating this weeks MojoMonday design.

Scrapbook Boutique challenge

Morning addicted card makers....This is my card for the Scrapbook boutique monthly challenge for October, just making my post by the skin of my teeth...but I really wanted to have a go as black and white are not my favourite colours to work with...the inspiration are the challenges gorgeous black and white flower cup cakes...and I do like flowers. I couldn't resist adding a smug of dusty pink :) 
Thanks for taking a peek

The Play Date Cafe challenge 104

Yesterday I was checking out my friend Vikki's blog and noticed the Play Date Cafe challenge blinkie, then on checking it out saw that their colour challenge for this week  was Mauve, Egg Yolk and Artichoke....well with Greens and Purples being my favourite colours how could I not have a go... here my take with the colours on a Christmas card.....this stocking is a Stamps Happen stamp with fine intricate lines and I found it quite hard to colour with my water pencils. Now to put a blinkie on my blog  :)
Thanks for taking a peek.
