Over at Mojo Monday it is time for a square or round sketch. I chose square as it is easier for me as I have pre-cut and scored square cardstock. I have used the new Papermania Portobello Road design papers, and the crown was stamped from their Urban collection, and the cute bow was ready-tied from the same collection. Thanks for looking. x

This week Chrissie and Mandi would like to see 3 shades of green. I took inspiration from Mandi and used resist technique, and brayer for my card, using stamps from SU!, Delicate Doilies. Shades of ink used are Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery (SU!) and TH distress ink Bundled Sage.

I made this card for a friend's birthday in her favourite colour of pink. I used an old cuttlebug cut and emboss postage stamp, and the SU! happy birthday stamp fits a treat! I think this may be eligible to be entered into the Less Is More colour challenge, although it is obviously lacking in green. Hmm, I also think this might be a bit too bright - feel free to delete is not suitable Chrissie and Mandi :-)

I have been clicking through blogland for inspiration (again!) *smile* - when I came across some beautiful cards and inspiration on this blog http://jules-alwayswithaheart.blogspot.co.uk/. Thank you Jules. I loved the layout and stitching on her 'snippets' card, and so I have created these 5x5 square cards. Thanks for looking. Have a lovely day. x

I have been playing with the SU! Delicate Doilies stamps, and this is what I have created.
The two postcard invitations are a 'first run' to check out design and colours, not perfect here but of the course the finished products were good. The blue card is generic, and I like the idea of colouring in the medallion. This set has seen a lot of stamping!
After struggling to think what to do for another masculine card, I came across a lovely blog which gave me instant inspiration - Jen Mitchell, thank you so much!http://http://jen-icreate.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/ccmc195.html (I Create). She used the colour combo from Connie and Mary of poppy parade, so saffron and basic grey, all SU!http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com/create-with-connie-and-mary/ and the sketch from Sketchbook Saturday http://ipalamountain.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/sketchbook-saturday-challenge-52.html. My card features DSP and stamps from SU! called Style Beautiful. Thanks for looking. x
