Mojo 196

I had this stamped and embossed ornament on my desk and I've seen how other card makers have layered their spellbinders so I had a go - it all came together quite quickly - simple but effective.

RobVik #9, Centre step construction card and variations

RobVik challenge #9
Hello fellow crafters, from Karratha where we are enjoying some really lovely weather; crisp, clear mornings around 15C and sunny, breezy days of 28C.
I had a wonderful Saturday skyping with Vikki and Estelle who had a sleepover stamping and scrapbooking weekend in Townsville. It was a very productive event for me as I made 7 cards. Firstly my RobVik #9 using some papers that I gave to Vikki - it started off nothing like the finished card which I'm happy with. Then I got into the construction card Vikki had seen on the Split Coaster site and ended up making 4 Christmas cards to add to my growing pile. Basically this weekend I picked up papers and stamped images from my desk as a base to start my card creations. Thanks for visiting, enjoy your week.

RobVik #8

Hello again this weekend. This is my first card made with the lovely green shades of card Vikki gave me while on my recent visit to Townsville. Again like the previous designer card, both sides are really nice and so I am going to try and make 3 cards for this challenge.

Mojo 195, RobVik #7

Hello from my desk here on this gorgeous Saturday. I'm quite happy with my Mojo card this week - it's a male card, probably for my father-in-law's birthday next month. Anyway I'm sure there's no fish in the sea/river with these colourings so I'm calling it a red finned trout - to suit the colours of the card Vikki supplied for our RobVik #7 challenge. I'm liking the colours and the designer card so much I'm going to make four cards from call back to check them out. Enjoy your weekend too whatever you're up to!!

Ok, so here are my four cards from the same card stock Vikki gave me - I wasn't sure at first about the colour combination but the card above shows the cherry red and dark pumpkin orange really well. I am pretty happy with them all and have enjoyed skyping with Vikki again. Thanks for having a look and enjoy your week.

Mojo 194

I'm back, been away for a short holiday to hug my kids, it was wonderful. I also enjoyed a chat over lunch with my crafty friends; Vikki and Estelle.
Here's my card for the last Mojo Monday, I missed posting it but oh well..... I tried another camera to see if that would improve the photo quality but doesn't look any different to maybe I'm up for a new camera <wide grin>!!
