All the cards we will be making on Sunday have texture on them as everyone will receive an embossing folder as part of the kit.  I have tried to go for some very different looks from traditional to quirky- this is the quirky !
I am usually a traditional girl but I think this Santa is quite cute as well as quirky !
I am entering this into Crafty Hazlenuts Christmas challenge which is to add texture.
One last project to finish tonight so best get on.

The C word in April.........

Yes the C word has been happening this week as my first Christmas class is on Sunday. I have 10 ladies clamouring for spaces and an overspill at the end of April in my home.
10 Christmas cards and a different project in a 6 hour class - a hard task but we seem to have found a great way of doing it by completing projects in 2s so the waiting for supplies is minimal.
This time the ladies all get a free embossing folder - so all the cards will involve embossing to get the best use from their stash.
Will hopefully show you more as the week progresses.

Love is in the air

 At least for someone !Made this little Guest book for my eldest sons girlfriends Mum (phew) who gets married in May - Gold and cream is the colour scheme but I am not a huge fan of mirri card gold and could only find this Bazzil Bling card stock that caught my eye.
 Hope they like it.
and hope this brings a happy ever after for them too.

Batch makes

Always sad when this sort of card has to be made - I made 4 of these for Andrew and Emmas family.
Yellow is because last time I was with Andrew I took him to Asda and he was looking for daffodils - he said the colours were cheery and he wanted them to give to someone.  I didnt have daffodills but I did have this lovely stampin up set which I borrowed from my Mum. The sentiment is another stamping up set and says just how I feel.
Somehow I just need to sum up what the both of them meant to me to add to each card - thats the really difficult bit as I could go on for ages about that!
Thanks for stopping by again x

Stamp/ die freebies in January

 Loved the stamp/ dies/ masks which were free gifts in the January Simply cards and papercrafts and simply homemade.
These were some batch makes I did at the local shop monthly craft session - good to have a stock of cards just in case.
The colours are momento dew drops - perfect for craft travel and such lovely colours.
Did you get the freebies and do some makes?
Would love to see them xx
Have a great day x

When Mr MoJo did make an appearance

 I created. This was for a friend who had been away over Christmas and I was house sitting.
 I left a gift in each of her rooms to welcome her home again.
 Saw this idea on Pinterest - a hug a day for a whole year!
Folding the hugs was a labour of love in itself !
Worth it though as she LOVED it!

I will be back to show more stuff when I can find the pics!
Thanks for stopping by x

One of Megs pieces

Our Megs is in her foundation year of art and is hoping to progress to University in September studying illustration.
This is one of her recent pieces - as you can see she has been studying emotions.
I love this combination of styles - especially the teeth!
This is a whole days work which for a stunning piece is no time at all.
She amazes me my girl xx
