Fabulous, Foxy & Fifty...

I had this card all lined up for FUSION this fortnight, but as FUSION has taken an early Summer break (see you back in September!) and as the card is for my hubby's 50th (hence the fabulous, foxy and fifty), I thought I would link it up to this weeks Simon Says For Him, and Seize the Birthday challenges instead. Created with Coute Coture embossing folder, wood veneers from Lawn Fawn and Studio Calico, letter stickers from Lily Bee, and papers from my stash.

Hubby noticed the the markings around the "fabulous" and asked "Does this mean you think I'm burnt out!?" LOL.

Spent a lovely couple of days relaxing in the Yarra Valley to celebrate - wine, cheese, chocolates and staying warm by the fire, while listening to the rain on the roof - perfect!

Mojo Merry Christmas...

In an attempt to beat the mojo blues, this was the first card I created on my crafty Sunday. I revisited a couple of pieces from my stash which I had created when I went crafting for the weekend about a year ago. This gorgeous vintage Santa stamp had been embossed with Red Tinsel, and the Christmas Carol stamped in Brushed Corduroy Distressed Ink. I paired these with some gorgeous self-patterned velvet ribbon and some tiny pearl beads, then added this gorgeous Winnie and Walter "Merry" die cut and "Christmas" sentiment stamped in Momento Luxe Olive Grove Ink - a perfect match to the Basic Grey paper, inked the edges with more Brushed Corduroy Distressed Ink and voila - the mojo is back :)

Christmas JOY...

Inspired by the gorgeous MUSE Christmas Club reindeer, I found this left over sparkly reindeer diecut in my stash on the weekend (I think it is WPlus9), and paired it with the "Joy" and tag diecuts from Winnie and Walter, together with two impressions of Tim Holtz Vintage Snowflake embossing folder strip to make this very simple CAS Christmas card.
