I am delighted to tell you that my mojo turned up again yesterday! It may be a brief visit but it was lovely to have it back on board! I have so many lovely new seasonal products to use and there are definitely some favourites which I cannot stop using including Flurry of Wishes! The new seasonal catalogue launches on 1st September but if you would like a copy sent in the post, please drop me an email with your address (firstname.lastname@example.org)
So today’s share is my last Stamping&Blogging weekly sketch challenge. Sandi and Heather have decided to stop the weekly sketch and will take this inside the stamping&blogging website for its members.
I want to thank Sandi & Heather for inviting me to join in. It took some arm twisting as I really wasn’t sure I could commit to a weekly sketch but I am so glad I did. I have met so many lovely new people and had lots of visit to my blog and for that I am really thankful.
I seem to have caught the bug too as I will be joining a new challenge website called the Global Design Project and it starts on 7th September so what my blog for more details coming soon.
I so enjoyed making this card! I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp to create snow in the sky and heat embossed it with white embossing powder and ink graduated blue ink to create the nights sky background.
I then stamped the tress from the new stamp set Wonderland (another firm favourite) and stamped the beautiful snowflakes (from Flurry of Wishes) in the background.
I think did some fancy stamping with the sentiment using my Stampamajig ensuring that the sentiment was in the correct place on both layers. It did take two attempts so I was really pushing my mojo at this point!
Here is the sketch we used –
