Only my second Christmas card for this year

My Mojo has been taking a holiday I am sorry to say.
Nothing seemed to inspire me.
Not surprising really as my life has been in turmoil this year
and not likely to settled down any time soon.
Enough about me.
I have managed to make only my second Christmas card for the year,
Using Copper/Bronze Gold and Turquoise.


The Copper I used was to back the tree and the sentiment to give a shadow effect.
It works quite well.

Am sharing this with;



Thanks for dropping in.

A card to Case

a lovely card to Case made by Therese.
Well I started inspired by the pastel colours.
My whole idea just flew out of the window and the card took over again
and I ended up with 2 cards instead of one.
Forgive the photos the sun was streaming in the window
{ sorry about that for all of you enjoying winter }
and it reflected onto the cards.

I started by sponging some gloss card with Worn Lipstick and
Squeezed Lemonade and putting my cut out flowers over the top.
They were not at all happy with that and wanted to be cut out of the sponged card
 So as usual I gave in and then they made me transfer all those little pieces
back into the spaces on the white card cut out.
Oh they were so fiddly and I kept loosing the really tiny pieces. 


Then of course the left over flowers insisted I do something with them too.
I bought some really pretty lace at the Dollar shop that they took a fancy to.
I stuck this down with very narrow D/S tape and was that difficult to 
get the backing paper off of that.

So I am left with 2 cards, terrible photos and  am going to have the 
cheek to enter one in the Flower Challenge.

Lovely to see you thanks for dropping by.

5 of something

left my run too late to join in with the Merry Monday challenge
of using 5 of something.
Although I am not very happy with my card I took too much time
agonised as to whether or not I was game to put it up at all. 



I should not have used all those snowflakes which by the way are silver not gold.
Ah well there is someone somewhere who will like it.  I HOPE!!!.
The snowman is by way of comic relief.
The trees are Heartfelt Creations lent to me by my good friend Elizabeth.





Lovely to see you thanks for dropping in.

Mainly for men

Why is it every time I get used to  updates on my computer it goes and puts on 
more updates that  I have to work to find my way around. Grrrrr!

Today I have some male cards to show you, I was really pleased with these.


The base card were a blue/grey


and I embossed on a steel coloured shimmer card.


Teamed that with SW Pierced flags and Spellbinders Script.
Plus a few paper studs that I have had for years
The embossing folders were
We R Memory Keepers.
Quilted and Geometric 

Having a lot of male cards to make for the Aged Care Home
I like to keep them plain and simple.







Thanks for dropping in.

Stamped backgrounds

I was given a pile of out dated copy paper which I have been using as inserts for my cards.
It is beautiful paper some textured some linen and the scraps 
I have been using to take notes on but it seemed such a waste
to do this so I have begun to stamp onto it and this is
what I have started to do with the scraps.


I also used some old stamps.  The rose above is a PSX
and the little leaf a Hero Arts.


The roses from this card are Stamp It the larger is 1998
and the small one 2000, again I used the little hero Arts leaf.


I am entering the blue one into.

Take one 12 x 12 sheet.

Yes this is  what I did.  
After doodling around on Y Tube where I watched a video
on making 6 cards using one sheet of 12 x 12
I decided to take up the challenge myself.


The yellow card  pieces where all scraps and the flowers etc were
all bits that have been sitting around waiting to be used.


This one has 4 pieces of yellow card and the butterfly must be at least 10 years old.


Spot the flowers from the border in the corners.


Couldn't believe my luck that these flowers were a perfect match.


Managed to make this flower from some left over sponged gloss card
and the butterfly was such a perfect match.

Am entering this in:






I don't know what this year holds for my family with DH now completely immobile.
He spends his day in a big chair that is back breaking to push around, 
sleeping most of the time.
So I know you will understand that I don't have much time visit or post.
