Mojo Monday - back in the swing of things!

Wow, it's back to work tomorrow for me after a nice week off.  I can't believe Christmas has been and gone again already.  I hope you all had a fantastic time with family and friends.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time off with Daniel and the kids.  We had a few days at home relaxing, a nice day trip to the beach, caught up with friends and enjoyed a beautiful day in the Yarra Valley to celebrate Grandpa's birthday.

I've been really slack with the card making. So slack that today is the first time I've made anything in ages.  It was nice to have a break for a while, catch up on some reading and some Gilmore Girls...my tv addiction for the holidays, yep all seven seasons in a few short weeks.  I love DVD's hee hee!

But it's back to normality tomorrow and I really wanted to spend my last day relaxing at home making a few cards.  I've been experimenting with digital stamps today. Frustrating at times (SU paper does not like my inkjet printer!) but with a bit of patience lots of fun.  Who doesn't like the prospect of new stamps now, not next week with the postie!!  So here's my take on the Mojo Monday Sketch using my new digi stamps.

These gorgeous stamps are from All That Scraps and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.  The card is Papertrey Ink's Ocean Tides and the patterned paper is Basic Grey.  I've colored the image with Copics.

I had a second go at the challenge, when I found this little guy over at The Greeting Farm...

Not sure I love this card, but as a big Twilight fan how could I resist another little Edward stamp (tragic I know!) I decided to colour his skin a little grey this time round as the pink skin tones just weren't pale enough...think it turned out a little too grey though.  Oh and of course he had to sparkle with the sunshine!  The sentiment is from the movie....fitting for the theme of the card I thought!  Anyway, far from perfect but fun none the less!!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my little place.

until next time, hugs
