Mojo magic ...

... gosh, it's been a busy day.  Kathryn and I picked up Ben from the airport and then went for a really nice family lunch.  I swear Ben has grown since we saw him at Christmas - he towers above me now!!  I think he'll hit 6 feet before he stops growing!!  The kids have been having a great time catching up and playing - so nice to hear gales of laughter from them!!

Anyway - onto my card for this week's challenge over at Mojo Monday - another fantastic sketch!!


I've made a card for my cousin - it's his birthday in a week's time.  I've used my trusty Half Pint Heroes set - and I've tried my hand at making a scene!!


I have a lovely set of papers from K & Company that are bright, cheerful and really suitable for guys.  I decided to use an orange A6 card for the base and selected the circle paper from the set as the main backing sheet.  I then picked a couple of coordinating papers from the pack to make the circles and to make a mat for the scene.  I stamped the car and head directly onto plain white card, covered them with a mask and then stippled the background in - making a road, some hills and the sky.  First time I've tried this, and rather pleased how well it turned out.  I added some trees to the side of the hills and some bushes at the roadside.  I removed the masks and coloured the car and face with Promarkers.  I made a paper ribbon from the matching paper and punched either side with my Martha Stewart punch - opting for a simple design.  Finally I added some brads which I've coloured with my Promarkers.

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Half Pint Heroes, Teeny Trees
Spellbinders: Inverted Scalloped Circles Lg and Standard Circles Lg
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, Cottage Ivy, Pear Tart, Rose Bud; Distress - Pumice Stone, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans
Papers:  K & Company - Hopscotch
Accessories:  Brads from stash; Martha Stewart Edge Punch

I had hoped to get a couple of other challenges completed today - but I've been busy with the family - and we've had a great time.  So I think I'll have a go at putting something together tomorrow.

Check back tomorrow for this week's CR84FN colour challenge - it's gorgeous!!  See you then!
