Mojo Monday - a double helping.

Greetings from the computer room....for some reason I'm feeling giddy and silly...and, NO, I haven't been on the wine...I have to do an emergency dash to Waitrose soon....the cupboards are bare and Sainsbury's don't deliver until tomorrow...I also need to pick up s'thing for dinner....but what?

I have two LOs to show you, both for challenges on Flying Unicorn

First we have the sketch from 1st October - the challenge was to do a LO based on an artist. I chose Monet...because the Impressionists are my favourites.
I used papers by The Scrap Cake, then added a vine and flowers from stash.
The butterflies were fussy cut from a book on South African butterflies that I found in a second hand bookshop in Truro.

Next up is a Halloween LO  using Pink Paislee "Hocus Pocus" papers and embellies. I'd forgotten all about these photos...they're from 1993 when we had a street party for the children as Halloween was a Saturday.

Now for a photo of my table as it was last Wednesday...

Notice what's missing?   There's no jigsaw...!! Sadly this didn't last...

And now for a Christmas card for the " 50 Shades of White" challenge:

I couldn't resist the embossing (or Triboss as it's called) folder.

DH has just phoned to say he'll be back in Thame in half an will pick me up from I go!

The Monet page is just gorgeeeeeeeous! Love the colours and how the cutting all just matches so perfectly.

I also have mat envy! A purple mat? Mine are all boring green! (Underneath the paint and glue)
