Mojo Monday Week 104 & Simon says Stamp - Recipe



I can't believe it - another week away again!!! Time is flying buy and my stash of cards made for challenges is mounting up. I really need ideas from all you long time crafters out there as to what I can do with them.
Anyway I have made this card to enter into 2 challenges. This great sketch is for Mojo Monday challenge and I couldn't resist having a go at it. Simon Says Stamp this week was a recipe consisting of 3 Embellishments, 2 papers and 1 sketch.
The backing papers I chose are from the Granola pad (Flax and Grain) by Basic Grey. The ribbons, buttons and sentiment are from my stash and the embellishment at the top left corner is cut with a Cricut Expressions machine from the Storybook cartridge. I flipped and merged characters to give a continuous corner.
The image I used is "Bedtime Stories" from Sugar Nellie (I adore Nellies) and the wee boy and his doggie friend, who reminded me of my own Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, although ours is a Blenheim and not black and white, are coloured in using my Copic Ciaos.
Please feel free to leave any comments because I love getting feedback from you all.
Hugs,
Fiona x

  1. Beautiful layout with this one.
    And such a sweet image ( one you just want to hug).
    As for ideas. well there are so many ..if you want to give to charity .. loads out there at this time of year! I send some of mine to the MS charity ( mainly cause they dont have funding from the goverment) and it runs in our family.
    Oh see if there is a school fate going on , and get some cash back to buy more "stuff".
    Or ask friends and family if they would like to buy a few from you ?

  8. so cute! made me smile about how the little dog reminds you of yours - even though they dont look alike :)..our pets are part of our family!
    I sell my cards to help offset this "not so cheap little hobby"..on Ebay and Etsy. Etsy fees are less than Ebay's, but it takes a little longer for a card to sell. The other ladies also have great ideas...sometimes a little shop will sell them. I found though that too many of mine "walked away" and I wasnt paid of course for those that were taken. I guess its easy to take a card and not pay for it....let us know what you decide! hugs to you
