Mojo Monday #81

Just a quick one this morning as I am home alone (Ali is at a swimming gala) and am keen to get my craft stuff out! Before I do though, I wanted to show you this card that I made last night for this weeks Mojo Monday sketch. I loved this sketch as soon as I saw it but spent hours shuffling my elements around, it drove me crazy! It was a great excuse to play with these fabulous McSplendid Farm stamps by The Greeting Farm though :o)

I am seriously loving this paper, I think I might actually cry when it runs out. Either that or buy a load more of it I guess! Also, 9 months after buying my first Nesties, I've FINALLY bought myself an embossing mat. In the early days, I didn't really think I needed one but now I actually do have one, I love it! The embossed edge makes the cut look so much more professional.

Goodie List........
Stamps: McSplendid Farm by The Greeting Farm, available from Dies to Die For.
Paper: Pebbles Inc.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Nestabilities, brads and ribbon from stash.

Thanks for all of your lovely comments about my MOT. I'm pleased to report that it virtually sailed through - £68! Woo-hoo! Not sure if more stash is allowed still though as the quarterly BT internet bill dropped on to the mat yesterday..... boo hiss!

Hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday weekend so far, lets hope the weather picks up for us!
