Mojo Monday # 108 - Yeah on time this week !!

Well I have managed to get this card made and uploaded before the cut off for Mojo Monday...unlike last week !!!
The sketch for this week can be found here

Friends of mine have just had their baby 6 weeks early, sending lots of love to Catherine who is still poorly n hospital and to Mark who is running between his wife and newborn daughter Holly who is in SCIBU.  Lots of Love again xxx

I really enjoyed the sketch this week and have used the fabulous Swiss Pixie from CC designs.  The Patterned paper is Crate Paper Katlin and if you have a look back through my blog you will see I have used it loads !

I love the colour combo here and have coloured her in using Prisma Pencils and have highlighed her hair with Sakura Glitter Pen.  For a funky effect I have made "overwings" and stuck them in front of her coloured wings and hidden the join with some swarovski crystals.  I think they look really cute....here is a closer look

I have used the McGill Pine Branch punch for the leaves and a beautiful little princess charm which my buddy Vicki gave me ( thanks bud x) The flower is a pink Poinsettia from Prima and as usual I have used the sentiment using the round and scalloped Nesties.

Thanks for looking and I appreciate all your comment...

Mojo Monday # 107....Oooops, it's late !!!

Guess who didn't get this uploaded in time..Oh well, I enjoyed having a go at the sketch at least !!

The Sketch can be found here if you want to go and have a sqizz.  I have used my new stamp from lili of the valley stamps, isnt she just adorable...

I have used papers from Craftwork Cards as is the sentiment and matted the white paper onto silver Mirri card after inking with a dark blue chalk ink.  The circle and scalloped circle is from the nesties. The dark blue card is also from Craftwork Cards and has a shimmer to it so it looks really rich.

I have coloured her in using my Prismacolor pencils and for the first time I have used the Polar White flowersoft on her wings...I think it looks great.  She has red swarovski berries on her crown and a smattering of flat back pearls as well.

I have tied a piece of Bazzill Tulle around the white squares and ties in a bow and pushed two heart pearl headed pins through.

Thanks for looking  xxx

Happy 60th Birthday Rob - Sketch Saturday # 72

Hi There

Sorry for the lack of posting recently...been mega busy with work and things.  I have just finished this card for our very good friend Rob Errington who is 60 in a weeks time...If you know him....don't tell him this is on here !!!! I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday which can be found here

I have used the Marovia Collection available from Craft Obsessions and the adorable Edwin from Magnolia stamps from The Glitter Pot and is called Party Edwin.  I have used some velvet Ric Rac, Crystals, and the shooting stars were in my stash ( I never thought I would use them, but they go perfectly I think) I have coloured Edwin in usung my Prismacolour pencils as the copic pen fairy hasn't been for a visit yet !!!

and here is a sideways shot, the card has loads of depth and I think a box will be order as I don't think it will go in an envelope !!

We hope you have a fab birthday Rob...I wonder what the birthday fairy will bring ??
