Mojo Madness

I dont know about anyone else but I am traumatized by this sketch lol. I think I must have sat down 5 or 6 times, chucked various bits away swore a couple of times and given up too. But I was saved by a new stamp set I got today. Mind you even then I had to chuck another attempt away. I am actually really happy with the final result. I love these colours together. I used the 'elements of style' and the freebie 'bliss' set from stampin up for this card.

This will probably (well maybe) be my last entry for a few weeks as I am off to the UK to visit my mum on Friday and this thing called work keeps getting in the way of my crafting.

Thanks for looking, think I need a drink.

Inkspiration and Sweet Stop Sketch

I am loving these colours over at Makeesha's challenge blog. Only slight difference was I had to use vanilla instead of the white because I just adore the 'love letter' DS papers from stampin up and white would not have gone. I look forward to the Sweet Stop Sketch each week and although its not something I normally do, I have flipped the sketch layout on its side. Most of the time I dont 'do' bows, mostly because I am awful at it lol. I have tried and tried but my fingers become thumbs and the outcome is usually a disaster. I have just got the 'Aviary' stamps from stampin up and decided to give it a whirl.

Our Creative Corner

This week's challenge was to use a tree as part of the image and to keep the card clean and simple. I sort of used a similar layout for another card earlier in the week and decided to incorporate today's into it. I did use the colour q challenge colours again for this one. It actually looks better in real life. The stamp is from 'Trendy Trees' from stampin up.

Colour Q and Clean and Simple

I am loving the colour combos over at Colour Q. I was a bit concerned that I was going to struggle with these colours as I dont really have much of them in my stash. I have got as near to the colours as I could though. The Clean and Simple sketch came together really nicely even though I have put the sentiment in the wrong place oops. Overall I am happy with this card.

Split coast stampers Clean and Simple Challenge.

This is my first time having a go at the clean and simple challenge over at splitcoast stampers the theme today was 'ROCK'. I am happy with my result, I did have to fight the urge to stick some bling on. Pat on the back I resisted. I used my set from Taylored Expression 'you rock' for this one. I stuck with a plain white card, I drew a black border with my marker from stampin up. I stamped the blotched image direct on the card and stamped and cut out the guitar which I mounted using dimentionals. I added the You rock sentiment.
