My Mojo 248

Here is my Mojo 248 card. This weeks card was inspired by some lovely ladies I met very recently but feel like I've known for a long time (oh, the wonderful world of Blog Hopping)!  The colours Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake were inspired by Narelle Macey who was inspired to make a Christmas Themed card inspired by Barbara Williams who was inspired by - it's all very compex! Anyway, here is the Sketch

And here is my card...

Products used - Crumb Cake cardstock, Rich Razzleberry cardstock, DS Pattern Stack Brights, Basics Pearls, Crumbcake Seam Binding Ribbon (love this stuff!), Linen Thread and Stampin Up's EXCLUSIVE (lol) brown packing paper  - for the flower!

I unfortunately also had reason to make a Sympathy Card so I'll show you that as well.  I like this card - I'm quite chuffed by it. Even though Sympathy cards are not something we like to make I think it is nice that the recipient gets a unique gift and the knowledge that you have been thinking about them and care enough to make the effort to create something especially for them.

I just love these flowers and they are so easy (my 7 year old makes these) and versatile!  Just change the colour and you have a frangipani, a tiger lily or any number of colourful blooms!

I am going to (try to) do more challenges, under the advice of Teneale Williams so I may post more often - or I may not - at the moment it is school holidays so I may even post some cards that my gorgeous girls make.

Until next time - Keep Stampin'  Marls  xx

  1. LOVE! Great card, I went to Mojo Monday and was looking at the thumbnails and your card grabbed my eye! You made a Lou Lou flower with SO funny the paper from our boxes, that has made my night! The pearls around the oval would be time consuming but looks great! I think I will need to use that idea soon.
