Mojo Monday #82 meets Papertake Weekly Challenge

Tuesday, 14 April 2009
I could get used to these lie-ins! Jon and I have got this week off and it's been nice not having to get up at 5:50am, although the cat doesn't realise that!

I had some good news yesterday. Lorna, one of my best friends, told me that her twin sister had given birth to a baby boy, so the perfect excuse to make a card. It also gave me the chance to use the latest sketch over at Mojo Monday.

I've used my new SU stash that I got courtesy of the lovely and very talented Julie Japes. I've used Bashful Blue cs to make the card base and have then mounted some Bashful Blue dp onto white CS (both punched with my MS lace doily punch), added some ribbon and adhered to the base. The image is from Forever Friends and has been coloured with copics before being cut with nestabilities and mounted to more Bashful Blue cs. I have cut another square from white card and attached to the base. The FF image has been mounted using 3d foam pads.

I don't normally show the inside of my cards as they're normally very plain, but I thought this looked cute so decided to take a photo for you. I've stamped the sweet lil' baby FF bear and coloured with copics again. The sentiment is from Elzybells.

This card also qualifies for this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge which is to use pastel colours.

Hope you have all had a good day. We're sat watching a very nervy Chelsea v Liverpool Champions League match. C'mon Chelsea!!

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.

I've been having a browse through your blog and love your cards and the gift boxes you've done are fab. I've just made some acetate boxes from a tutorial I found on Splitcoaststampers which were great fun to do.
