Mojo Monday

Firstly, an apology.....my laptop is poorly..it keeps switching itself off mid-print, mid-scan, mid e-mail checking...so I'm not able to do much blog hopping and commenting...sigh. I'm hoping it's not terminal....:(

This first LO was made using the Mojo Monday sketch for 6th August.


I used Kaisercraft "Lake House" papers and collectables plus flowers from Bazill, Prima and Petaloo, a ZVA swirl, stick pins from QVC and a silver butterfly.
One of this month's challenges was to use material on your LO..I trimmed some very fine pink mesh with lace.

The postcard is vintage (found at a flea market)...it had a brief message and was postmarked 1926.

Next we have a card made for a recipe challenge:



Yes...I managed to use pink on a Christmas card....it's amazing what you can find in your old stash!!

Friday I managed to get to Scrap Club for the first time since February....it was wonderful!

The technique was paper piecing...probably one of my least favourite...but I managed with the help of some stamps  (the butterflies, flower  and leaf were all freebies from Craft Stamper):



I'm going to quit now..before the 'puter switches itself off....

Craig says is it your battery? He has to have his permanently plugged in to the wall now. Hope you get it sorted soon.

Club sounds fun and it's a fabby, cheerful page! The Christmas card is so much fun and a little gothic, love it and the lace on your other LO is just gorgeous.

The laptop obviously needs to be shouted at. IT advice offered free of charge ;D

You've been a busy girl, your mother and daughter LO is so romantic and dreamy. I love the paper piecing one with Max. I'm not going to mention the C-word one as a matter of principle (!)
