Got My Mo-Jo Back!

Well today I have been busy doing some crafting for some challenges and thought I would share them with you, think my mo jo  has come back today. Its been a horrible cold wet day here today so ideal for staying in the warm and crafting.So here is my first card and its for Lollipop Challenge which I found hard as it was no embellishments, and we all like to add something don't we-to our lovely creations. I also want to enter it into  Promarkers Challenge which was anything goes. The images I have used were from a set of stamps I received for Christmas from DD and they are supposed to be Darcy and Miss Bennet, and as I am a great Pride and Prejudice fan, these were very appropriate for me.The colours I have used were blush, moss green, pear green,cool aqua,powder blue,denim blue and ice grey 1&2.

My next card is for Lili of the Valley and that was to use lavender and lace. So here is a lovely image of two friends having coffee. I have added some lovely purple lace which I also got in a bag of lace that DD picked up at her local haberdashery shop, added some small roses and a sentiment.

This card is for Winter Wonderland Challenge and that was to make an easel card this week. So I have used one of my new Little Claire stamps that I bought before Christmas and hadn't had chance to use them. So I have used pinks and blues on this card. Once again I have revived some old stuff , these flowers are from one of the first bottles  I bought a few years back.

And now for my final card and probably most challenging for this week and that was for House Mouse Monday Challenge and it was to use black and white. So I used lots of different greys, a bit of black and a little blush for their skin. I have used the thimble stamp to make my backing paper, added some black buttons, a black sentiment and a little black and white bow.

Well that's all for the moment I hope you all have a lovely weekend whatever you are up to and where ever you are. Although if the weather forecast is correct I should think most of us will be stopping in with the heating on and just chilling. Thanks for dropping by and leaving your lovely comments hugs and kisses Arlinex
