Spots, Stripes and More

Hi everyone, I hope you're all keeping safe and well. I've been having a bit if a tidy up in the craft room and found Mojo hiding at the back of the cupboard which was lucky as I'd seen a few challenges that I wanted to join in with.

The papers I used for my first card are from a 12x12 inch pack that I bought at B&M some time ago, the mushroom fairy is a Mo Manning image coloured with my usual Promarkers and the little mushrooms are a Poppystamps die.

I made this for

Allsorts challenge 'gingham, stripes and dots'

Passion for Promarkers challenge 'spots and/or stripes'

Double D challenge 'begins with M'

I made my second card with dies from My Favourite Things and I embossed the background with a Couture Creations folder.

This is for

Unstampabelles 100th challenge 'wings and wind, twist predominately blue and white'

MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge

CAS on Friday challenge 'use a die'

Time Out challenge 'free'

My final card features a decoupage image from Joanna Sheen 'Faye Whittaker' cd, matted onto silver card and with a LOTV background paper.

This is for the Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge 'anything goes christmas, with option use some silver.

Hopefully Mojo will hang around a bit longer as I've got a lot of NBUS to play with! Thanks for popping by today and please keep safe and well in whatever corner of Blogland you live.

Three very different creation Andrea, I don't know that I've seen that Mo Manning image before but it's very sweet. The funky birds on the second card and fun and the third bot only has that lovely traditional feel but the dimensions really brings it to life.

Many thanks for joining in at Allsorts challenge this week.

Super set of cards. That embossed background for your Time Out cards looks great and adds a lovely texture. You have placed the birds in the perfect positions and using silver for the sentiment-matches the blue so well. Thanks for joining us at Time Out and leaving a lovely comment on our blog x

Three fab cards. I ooooed at the first card and rrrr'd at the blue birdies on the second
card and just love that last little scene you have created. My other poppy in the garden is a bright orange one. This one i don't normally see as it flowers when I am not around so i didn't realise how dark red it is with the beautiful purple centre. Hugs Mrs A.

All of your cards are beautiful - but the first one is extra special!
