Mojo Monday challenge

As I am making my Christmas cards, my take on this sketch is a Christmas one... I am so pleased that I have started this blog to do challenges and sketches like this as it is helping me get into it. I am really pleased with the colours...
The papers are again from the DCWV Christmas pad that I recently got and I have been looking for an excuse to use this ribbon for ages... just didn't quite go with my scrapbooking.
I have actually purchased some Christmas stamps and am waiting for some promarkers to arrive... then I am going to have a go at stamping...
My children have also been making some of their Christmas cards and have achieved some lovely finished cards... They actually did make their own last year but we were rushing the last ones because we didn't start them early enough. I think my OH thinks I have gone mad with all the Christmas crafting.
Anyway, off to do the ironing! Hope you are having a great day and finding time to craft yourself.

My First Card Challenge

my first card is my take on the Caardvarks challenge using black, white and hot pink... it is a christmas card, as I have just made a start on mine.

I have always favoured more traditional colours for my christmas cards and I have always just bought them in the past. I am hoping having this blog will help me make them all this year...

I had already bought these pink christmas DCWV papers and a few Dovecraft bits and bobs to match, so when I saw this challenge thought it was a good place to start.

I love browsing around at all the wonderful creations on the internet... only problem is it encourages more shopping!!!
