Mojo Monday

Here's my card for Mojo Monday - Week 86 (which was last Monday, but I haven't had a chance to post it!):
This is the sketch
And this is my card
I've used the Eastern Blooms stamp set, some retired papers, and Taken with Teal and Certainly Celery card stock. I've also used the same 2 colours for the main flower and the centre has dazzling diamonds on it. The flower has also been raised with a dimensional :)
Thanks for looking, Richelle

Stampin' Supplies List

Just a quick note to say that in the coloumn on the righthand side is a link to the 2009-10 Stampin' Supplies as they are no longer at the back of the catalogue... The list was just getting too long for the catalogue and no-one wants to carry around an encyclopedia set! Thanks for looking, Richelle

Mother's Day Card

Hi Everyone, I hope my mum isn't really keen and happens to read my blog before I see her tomoro, but here's a quick pic of the little card and matching bookmark I've made to go with her present... The photo doesn't do it much justice but there is crystal effects over the flower to make it 3D and dazzling diamonds in the middle for a bit of bling :) And the bookmark is covered with a flower background wheel. If you like it, you'll have to borrow the set as its no longer avail..... I wasn't planning to blog this card but thought it was cute so I changed my mind :P It didn't take long to knock up last nite and the book mark with a little beading was so simple and fast. My mother in law also received a similar set tonite, but I didn't photograph it in time.... Oh and the layout was inspired by Makeesha's Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #7 (click here for her site - its absolutely marvellous what she can create!!!!!) Thanks for looking, Richelle

Mojo Monday #85

Here's my first completed Mojo Monday Challenge... Its for a friend who just had her first baby girl today! Congrats Stacey!! And I just love making girls cards cos you can make them so bright and pink!! LOL :)

And this card is of my own creation, and its for another friend who had a baby boy recently. I've actually used my 'crop-a-dile' to make holes all the way along the ribbon to put the brads in. I thought of this all by myself tonite (altho I guess I may have seen it done somewhere so I won't take all the credit). And the 'happy new baby' image has been raised off the page with some dimensionals

Thanks for looking, Richelle
