Roses and snowflakes

Evening all!   I was asked to make a card for a 90 year old lady, it's not too often those requests come along!  After a LOT of deliberation I ended up using this oldie from LOTV - coloured with polychromos and sparkle added to the roses.  Luckily I had a few silver peel off stickers left and had enough letters to spell out her name.

  • Layout from MFT Wednesday Sketch #499
  • Colour theme inspired by the picture over at Inspired By #Beach Life
  • the Flower Challenge #46 - summer or winter - I've gone for summer roses - my Mum has a fab rose garden with every colour you could want (hope she doesn't mind about my 'blue' roses LOL)

And of course I couldn't post without one from my MFT bears LOL!  The sooner they bring out this year's Christmas stamps the better, hopefully I love them (I usually do!)

From one extreme...

Hi All!  Sorry I've been MIA again, I'd absolutely zero mojo so just gave myself a break from crafting and blogging.  But it's definitely now time for a boot up the derriere and to get on with it, mojo or no mojo!
I'm off all next week hurrah - we get Mon & Tues off for the traditional Twelfth of July holiday and then work decided to close the rest of the week.  I've lots of jobs planned but we'll see how that goes!  I can finally tick haircut off my list, got it done on Thursday so I'm a bit more ready to face civilisation again ;)

I've a really simple card and a OTT card this evening!  This one uses an old favourite monster from Whipper Snapper - coloured with polychromos and gloss/glitter added to his .... ummmm ... scales?  I've no idea what to call those bumpy bits!!

Stamping Sensations July - all creatures great and small
Seize the Birthday #194 - red, white and blue
Make My Monday #126 - stars and/or stripes
Cardz 4 guys #248 - red white and blue

I'd started making this one for last week's Sketch Saturday challenge but faffed about too much and missed the deadline.  It's a tad too busy for me, reckon it all got very complicated with that too snazzy DP.  I shoved in those snowflakes too and kinda wish I'd left well alone!  It was another faffing session trying to figure out where to put the sentiment - tried die cuts and strips of card in various shades before just stamping it down!
(that black strip is mirror card)
Not sure if I'm loving this one or not, but here you go anyway ;)
