Mojo Monday 304

Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday. The blue background paper, doily, and pleated ribbon all came in a goodie bag with a recent Verve order. How nice! Stamps and dies used are Verve and I felt kind of lazy using the pre made flowers but the ones I stamped and die cut were too stiff to lay nicely over the pleated ribbon. Anyhow, I ended up with a pop of yellow that wouldn't have been there so that's OK too. Thanks for looking!

Colour Q Challenge 199

For this week's Colour Q Challenge I used the Hexagon Cover Plate from Papertrey Ink and the Butterfly and banner/flag dies from Verve. The Butterflies are  stamped with a Script background stamp in Groovy Guava, both from Stampin Up. The sentiment is a Verve stamp and the background paper was part of a gift pack I received with my latest Verve order (sweet, huh). Thanks for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 96 & Merry Monday Anything Goes

For this week's Freshly Made Sketch 96 I made a Christmas card. I used Verve dies and  ribbon, and although it doesn't look like there's any stamping, I stamped some pink snowflakes (Verve) on to my tag before I stuck the trees on. The edges of the tag were swiped with a little brown ink. The sentiment is a sticker that I've had for a while. I'm also entering this in the Merry Monday July challenge Anything Goes. Also linked to Crafty Hazel's Christmas Challenge.

Mojo Monday 302 & Dynamic Duos Duos 61

I've used this week's Dynamic Duos colours (as close as I had lol:) for this week's Mojo Monday sketch. Dies and stamps used are Verve. I think I should have gone a little more grey for the Sahara Sand, for some reason I thought it was a light tan. Thanks for looking!
