Card Mojo and the fun of the Fair


Hi Everyone

Last weekend was the first time in quite a while that I have sat down and down some crafting.    I made a birthday card for my friend, Abi.  I used my favourite stamps - Magnolia.  I forgot to take a photo of the card.  But using the same idea, I have made a card for my dad's birthday.  I had to do it in secret.  I was up late yesterday, trying to fix my mum's PC, so I was stamping and colouring while waiting for the PC to do things.  I finished the card off today.


I have combined the following Magnolia stamps together: Sitting Wedding Edwin and Apple and Cherries - Circus Horse.  I have used Distress inks and copics to colour the images in.  The papers are from my stash.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid.  I have used distress ink and Bronze pearl Pens to distress them.  I have also used the same Pearl Pen to add pearls around the card and also on the buttons on edwins shirt.



I am entering this into the following challenges:

I have been exploring some of my favourite blogs for tutorials and ideas I want to have a go.

Bubbles and more bubbles

Hi Everyone

I have taken a break from card making for a little while.  My card making mojo has taken a little drive.  Not sure where, but it will be back.




I have been doing up some of my old miniatures that were looking a little tired.  Here is a sink that my mum made from a kit several years ago.  I had originally used solid water to create water in the sink, but it had turned a little yellow and I wanted to add some bubbles.



So out came my card making skills and the glossy accents plus a few seed beads.  Time to get messy hands.  I missed some glossy accents with the seed beads and then piled it on to the solid water.  I add a lid to the bubbles.



I even made the drip on the water pump much better, by adding a clear bead and some more glossy accents to it and to the spout.



The dish cloth was created by my lovely mum.  The sink will be going in the kitchen in my Tudor house.
