When is a box not a box??

....When it's a book a easel!


I made this using the freebie book a easel over on the clipart fairys blog
I simply made a rectangular box and then stuck two pages of the book a easel to it . One on the top and one on the bottom. As you can see the result is a lovely shaped box :)
I made the flower from a few hand cut petal shapes then added some pearls and loads of glamour dust to finish.

Wendy has loads of other lovely book a easels and much more on her website here

Floating by......

......to say Hi

Well the new images worked :) Mr mojo has returned hopefully he'll be staying for a little while :)


I printed her 3 times to make it look as if she is floating upwards than coloured her with prismacolor pencils
I then added a cloudy background using a hand cut stencil and chalk ..for the life of me though I cannot get it to show up well on the picture! grr
sentiment was made on the computer using bookworm font
PP is free download from summertime designs
3 little gems to finish

Thanks for stopping by

lil Pops!

Well my mojo is still nowhere to be found but I thought I would pop in and tell you about these super cute lil pops which are some of the new releases from Digistamp Boutique


 How blinkin cute are they?? I've printed some off and will hopefully be having a play later. If these don't get the old Mojo going then there's no hope! lol

There is also a set of super cool xmas Zoe &Henry images


Both sets are offers of the month :)

Saturday

Have you seen....

...my Mojo????
If you happen to come across it anywhere. Give it a good old telling off and tell it to get home quick sharp!

I have sat looking at images and paper for a few days. Spend another few days shuffling said paper and image around and what have I accomplished? nothing nadda zilch nowt!

I thought I would show you a couple of things I've attempted to make out of fimo though



I'm really enjoying have a play with this although it can be rather frustrating as whats in my head is never the same as my model lol oh well I will keep practising.

Oh and I sat and made these
the other night. Trying to use up my scrap card. That's one of the problems when you make you own card blanks..what to do with all those bits left over?
Haven't a clue really what I'm going to do with them..maybe keep making them until I have enough for a wreath.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend

Monday

Shorty bear

Yep back to the bears! lol
And isn't he just the cutest?


He's just one from a set of six bears from this set
As always i coloured the image with prisma pencils then I cut away the inner part of the frame and matted the panel onto another card blank so he looks like he's peeking out of it
sentiment was computer generated
I did a tiny torn rolled rose and a pearl to finish
(sorry about the wonky pic :) )

Hope you like and thanks for stopping by

Friday

It's that cold .....

..it feels like xmas here the last couple of days. I made stew yesterday and even had to put me cardie on! 

Anyhow cos it's not so warm it didn't feel so bad making the odd chrimbo card.
I think these will be my batch xmas card for this year. Super simple to make and very speedy too :)
The backing paper is a download from pink petticoat printed onto ivory linen cardstock
the greeting was done on the computer then cut out with nesties
I added some lovely black glitter to the snowflakes but it didn't show up well on the photo :(

Because you're Gorjuss

Well after I made my card the other day I just fell in love with this colourway. So soft and pretty :)
So here's a little card I made using one of the old Gorjuss girl images that's been in my stamped images box for well......... an age lol. It's quite sad really isn't it? We buy all this stuff cos it's the latest must have use it once and then they get shoved out of site mostly never to see the light of day again...poor things!!! lol
Again it's not my usual oh so clean and simple but a change is as good as a rest isn't it?


The image has been coloured with prisma pencils
All softened with antique linen distress ink

As always thanks for stopping by and Thanks ever so much for all the lovely comments you have been leaving. I'm aware I am being a terribly bad blogger again of late but I'm hoping to put that right over the next few days and look forward to having a nose at what you've been up to.

Thursday

Comfy...

...slippers.
I think the heat has melted my card making mojo :( It's just to hot to sit in my little room so I picked up my hook and sat outside to make another pair of these.
I followed the basic pattern here but used two strands of yarn on a slightly smaller hook to make the a bit more chunky/warm.


Here's what they look like on, please excuse the corned beef/pale pegs lol
I so need some sun!

Last time I made them I found them a bit slippy on my wooden/tiles floors . Then I had a light bulb moment and had the idea to used some of that 3d paint on the bottom to make some sticky pads
Not the neatest but works a treat :)


Hope you are having a great week.
