My Mojo Saviour!


What a winter wonderland of a weekend! We've just had a load of snow today and it's definitely helping me get into the festive spirit!

Whilst I'd love to have been frolicking in the snow, I was paying the price for being so very unorganised this Christmas! I've been trapped away making lots of cards - I swear I'm gonna start in January for Christmas 2010!

My mind was blank today. On the one hand I don't like to mass produce the same design - I get kinda bored, but on the other hand it's hard to keep the mojo alive and kicking! Thankfully - Mojo Monday came to my rescue! Here's their near-ending sketch: ..and here's my take on it:
...I couldn't resist adding that bit of bling - just hope it still requires a small postage stamp LOL!
Card Recipe
Stamps: Inkadinkado Snowflake/PTI Signature Christmas
Ink: PTI Aqua Mist/Sweet Blush
Card: PTI Aqua Mist/Lavender Moon/Stamper's Select White/DP from Craftwork Cards
Accessories: Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Martha Stewart Border Punch/Clear Gem/White Gel Pen

Seeing as this was a pretty simple design, I decided to make two more for recipients who appreciate the tradition Christmas colours!
Big, bold red:
...and gorgeous green:
The red glitter sparkles so much more IRL - this is the best shot I could get of it:
Card Recipe
Stamps: Inkadinkado Wreath/PTI Stocking Prints (sentiment)
Card: PTI Vintage Cream/SU! DP
Ink: PTI Ripe Avocado/Pupre Poppy
Accessories: Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Martha Stewart Border Punch/Red Stickles
That's all I've got that I can upload for now - I've really gotta get these cards in the post! It's the deadline tomorrow for guaranteed Christmas delivery - best wrap up warm because there's no chance I'm driving in the snow. I'll suggest it as a romantic winter stroll to Chris so I've got some company ;D!
Thanks so much for stopping by during the chaotic Christmas season!
Catch ya later!

Aimes, these are fab! I love the colors and bling you added! I'm seriously thinking of doing New Year's cards next year...what do you think?

Maureen said...

Oh, love them both!! Like the contrast of nontraditional and traditional colours :) Wasn't that a great sketch? Love the snowflake stamp...ooops! I almost typed snowflower...hey...did I make up a new word? LOL

Love these, Aimes! Especially the wreath with the wonderful bling! Lucky receipient!! We had snow last week, too - it`s a beautiful Winterwonderland! But tomorrow it will be warmer and they predicted that the snow will be gone til Christmas :(
For next Christmas I have to change the way I create my Christmas cards - I didn`t pay attention to the size and the embellies! Don`t want to tell how much postage I had to pay for some cards ;)
Merry Christmas to you and your dear ones!

Oh, they're stunning. The mojo sketches are fabulous for when you need that wee bit of extra help (used one on my latest card which was from back in March!!!)

I'm so jealous of everyone with snow - it's like a summer's day here! We've had the odd flurry but nothing that's stuck. I'd give anything for a great big dump [of snow] right now!

Have a fabulous Christmas.

Wowser - Stunning, that's all I can say! My fave is the aqua/blush combo - just so purty! Hmm must make more use of sketches - it might just be my NY resolution!

Thanks so much for that lovely card you sent - it's in pride of place on the mantel. Just beautiful sith your colouring. I never thought of using that Tilda for xmas!

Have a great christmas, Love, Alison x

Love these cards Aimes, just fab! Think my favourite is the Aqua Mist/Sweet Blush one, such an unexpected colour combo for this time of year but it really works!
