Mojo Monday 99 - Christmas!!!!


Oh dear Mojo Monday on Friday - I'm slipping!!!

Now this was a different sketch - I wanted to use this sentiment and make one more Christmas card so hope this works OK.
  • Stamps: Sentiment - GKD Warm and Cozy Christmas, Little bells are SU.
  • Card: GKD Apple Green, PL pure White layering weight, SU Riding Hood Red, DP - Basic Grey Wassail falling snow and brandy butter.
  • Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia.
  • Ribbon: SU
My base card is apple green. First layer is riding hood red, followed by dp brandy butter.
I ran a line of piercing around this element. Then added more of the apple green, which was embossed using a script embossing folder and inked in sepia. The caramel strip is the reverse of brandy butter and once this was attached I added the ribbon.
I matted the next layer of dp onto more riding hood red. Added the part circle and stamped the small bells. Used more of the red card embossed with swiss dots before adding the sentiment which was attached with foam tabs to pop it up.

Yesterday home was like a madhouse!!! Two men fitting the new fire between the kitchen and dining room and another fitting two new exterior doors on the laundry and the side door into the garage!! So much for hiding down in my room - the phone was running hot I was up and down the spiral staircase till in the end I gave up!! Once they all left Walshie and I set about getting the house back in order - outside was the worse with wood shavings everywhere ............
never mind all done now.

Tomorrow is the Blog Hop for Nina's set Elegant Post - see the banner below!
The banner is talking Central Standard Time in the US though, so here in Australia that means 1pm on 15th August. I hope you can come back and join in, if you want to start with Nina's blog here is the link. I understand she has some Candy on offer too! I've got two projects to share with you, so hope to see you then.
