Here’s a card for two Monday challenges. Merry Monday #180 was to use a reindeer, and I combined that with Mojo Monday’s sketch #424. Text stamp is from Slöjd-Detaljer – I just LOVE our Christmas stamps!
I’m baaack! I didn’t have any internet connection on my pc for a while. But now both internet and I are back. The first card for today is a Christmas card based on Mojo Monday sketch #419.
I’m not sure why I make Halloween cards. I don’t celebrate Halloween. And not many people at all in Sweden send Halloween cards, as far as I know. Oh well. They will probably be available in my Etsy shop once I have made a few more. This one’s for Mojo Monday sketch #414. All papers are old scraps I’ve had for ages.
A couple of posts ago, I wrote that it’s still summer. Well, now it isn’t. Some days into September and the rain pouring down all day, it’s for sure autumn/fall now. Which means it’s a good idea to send an autumn greeting to brighten up someones day. I made this card from Mojo Monday’s sketch #413. It’s also for Shopping Our Stash #217 – Put a bird on it (my birds might not be in the focal part of the card, but they are there! 😀 ), and Allsorts challenge #327 – Lots of layers.
Oh my – that’s what I have to say about challenge #40 at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. “U is for Ugly” – use the ugliest paper in your stash. Oh my. I have these old papers from KMA, that I bought when I started scrapbooking in 2001. I seriously have no idea why I haven’t thrown the papers away a long time ago. I absolutely do not like them. Well, I guess it’s good that I kept them, so I could use them for this challenge. The stamp, which is NOT ugly, is from Slöjd-Detaljer. 🙂
The layout of my card is inspired by Mojo Monday’s sketch #311.
I made a card for Mojo Monday sketch #409 a couple of weeks ago, but never got around to post it. Here it is. Paper from Best Creations Inc, “You rock!” stamp from Inkadinkado.
Tonight’s second Christmas card is for Mojo Monday #408. I’m not sure if it’s tall and skinny enough (to be honest, I forgot that I was supposed to make a tall and skinny card), but here it is anyway.
I did have some difficulties with this week’s sketch at Mojo Monday. On the sketch, there are circles. There are two things I have a hard time using on my cards. One is circles and anything round shaped. Unless it’s pearls or rhinestones. The other thing is flowers, which would probably have been a good choice to use where those circles are. I ended up making small flower like kind of thingies with Pearl Maker instead, that’ll have to do.
The Swedish sentiment I used, means “Creativity is to invent, explore, experiment, grow, take risks, break rules, make mistakes and have fun”. Very wise words. 🙂
