Mojo Monday

Don't all second crafty post in a week....

This is what I made over the weekend for the Mojo Monday challenge on Flying Unicorn.

The sketch was drawn by Alda and I had lovely messy fun with inks, masks, mists and distressing tools.

Flowers by Prima, Maya Road, Creative Expressions and Anna Griffin.
All other embellishments (including two old earrings) are from my stash.

Last Monday D's niece/god-daughter had her second little boy....Edgar John

This is the card I made to welcome him...

I made a collage of old book papers and lace then covered it with blue vellum.
The photo is one I picked up on ebay. It has blue ribbon covering the photographer's name. I added three buttons and a rocking horse charm and put a quote inside.

This week I want to do some art journalling...esp. as my Feb review for ARC is due.

Hope you're all busy crafting....

The Mojo Returns...very slowly..

Today I have a card and three LOs to share.

The card was for my SIL's birthday last week and I used the new "Mirabelle" collection from Santoro.

The LOs are all for challenges on Flying Unicorn....

I used the "Dapper Dan" collection from seemed suitably masculine!

For this one of Princess Peanut I used the January kit from Flying Unicorn. The paper is a heavyweight, single sided "Art Journal" paper by Prima. It was a joy to work with.

Mickey's name is now Mika....for this LO I used a Club Scrap kit from 2012 "Wild Flowers" and did some stitching...ribbons and buttons are from my stash.

The reason for the name change is simple...the boy and Mika fell in love at first sight...and I was asked to keep him if I felt I could cope with three dogs....yes, he's staying...but I've promised not to foster any more!!

This picture was taken literally five minutes after the boy arriving home!
