The Pink elephant colour challenge #31 and the Mojo Monday sketch challenge #103


I have combined two card challenges here with this card for these 2 sketch and colour challenges that I am taking part in this week.

The Pink elephant challenge for this week is a colour challenge of red, yellow black and white. and so I combined that with the Mojo Monday challenge sketch for this week also.

I used red cardstock for the base card, yellow core'dinations cardstock for the first layer, the black strips were cuttlebugged using my trusty Swiss dots foldera and the Hi/hello stamp is from Hero Arts. Hope you like my take.

80th birthday card made for my Uncle Graham


My Uncle Graham turns 80 this next weekend and I wanted to do a special card for him reaching this mileston so I designed this card using the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug A2 embossing folder, this die from the Making memories Slice die cutting machine that looks like a house and the red cardstock as the card base. My uncle is very much a home person as well as loving to play golf watch rugby and cricket and Harness horse racing and as I had used gof and rugby cards for him for past birthdays I decided it was time to do something different this year.

Hope you like what I did for him

The Pink elephant challenge #30


Here is my take on the http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/ for their challenge #30 which was the recipe challenge where you had to make a card using two squares, ribbon and something that sparkles.

It took me a few days to work this one out and of course I just had to try my new Making Memories slice die cutting machine to make the squares with rather than the Nestabilities scalloped squares that I have.

Hope you take a peek at my creation.

Cards that I made last weekend 28 August
















I made these cards over last weekend while at my respite care work. I was trying out my new Stampin Up stamps and the week of Mojo Monday sketches from http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com/ that they had to celebrate them having 100 sketches.





I had fun doing these cards and using the sketches. Hope you like what I have done as well.
