Snowmen & Friends


As promised, to cool you down if you are in the UK at the moment, I am sending some Christmassy cards you way.


I hoped it worked and you are now a little cooler – though it is forcast to be turning colder again and I definitely don’t want that.  The heat and humidity can be very wearing but I prefer it to the cold any day of the week.

All for now folks,

…… to my little grandson.  This is the card I made for him, not my usual thing but then I am sure not many 15 year old boys would appreciate one of them.

4. For Oz

very grungy but just the sort of thing he will love.

As I often speak of my little grandson I thought you might like to see a picture my hubby took of the pair of us on our recent holiday in Montenegro.


I must point out that I am not short but an average 5ft 4in. That’s all for now folks, but after that lovely sunny picture I will be sharing Christmas cards next as I had a splurge on those last weekend.

This is the sketch for mojo 2 2and my take on it is here

the only small round toppers I had to hand were black and white so I decided to go with that colour scheme and I rather like it.

A mojo and more



When I found that the mojo Monday challenge was to end I decided to download all their sketches so I could still have my Monday fun.  I now have them almost all from 1 to 500 only No 5 is missing – so if anyone has it I would be grateful if you were to share.

So starting at no.1 I shall continue with my Mojo Monday, though the challenge will only be to myself lol . So this was the first ever sketch 1and my interpretation of it.


I have also done a few others for my charity in between doing some special ones so I thought I would share them too.




Thank you for taking the time to look.

I will publish the special cards as they are received.

Hugs to all who need or want them.

Mojo 500 (No.3)

So  last, but I hope not least, in my three posts for the last Mojo challenge is the mod one, which I think would make an ideal “teen” card.


Apart from the green with the white swirls, which was from my scrap draw the rest of the papers on this were from the K&Co “Susan Winget” design pad.  I think the stamp was from Dovecraft – if anyone knows differently please let me know.  Like the stamp I have had the flower die a long time and have no idea what it is.  Until I started to blog my cards and people asked where things came from, I had never thought to save packaging so have no idea where most of my older things originated.

I do hope you have enjoyed my three different cards and have not minded too much having to hop through three different posts to see them.

Hugs to you all

Mojo 500 (No 2)

This is the 2nd one I am submitting to the very last Mojo Monday Challenge.  I am back to the nautical look with this one lol.


Papers were all from my scrap box, an old sailing ship topper from stash with the Best Wishes stamped on to it using Momento London Fog, and a little embellishment from the Sue Wilson Nautical Collection.

Mojo 500 (No1) and a Sad Farewell

As many of you know, a short while ago I discovered and started to take part in the Mojo Monday Challenge.  This was completely out of my comfort zone and I thought if I could force myself to take part in the challenge each week it may expand my crafting.  Well much to my surprise I loved it and really looked forward to Mondays to see what the next challenge would be.  When I visited yesterday I was saddened to hear that this weeks challenge will be the final one.  The lady who runs the group has her own craft business and also a couple of lively 5 year old twin boys, so I fully understand her going but I will so miss this.  So if Julee is reading this then I would like to say Many Thanks for expanding not only my card making but opening my mind to new ideas.

So here is this weeks sketchMojo500Sketch

As this is the last week I am going to submit 3 cards, but each has to have its own post so this is the first of my efforts and has an old fashioned look to it and the picture is long ways on though the sketch shows it sideways on.  DSCF5196

I used papers from two different pads, 2 different gold tapes, a flower from my stock, and the topper is from Printable Heaven.

Once again many thanks to those who take the time to look and to those who leave comments, I always love to hear from you.
