Monday morning and my mojo's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Morning all,

Well, after two weeks of a Saturday craft post only I'm happy to report that my errant mojo appears to have returned from its Sabbatical, although it refuses to say where exactly its been hiding!!! So, a craft-y post from me on Saturday/Sunday AND Monday! Woo Hoo! Might as well make a thank you card since we were out to lunch with new friends on Saturday and wanted to show our appreciation ... so, thought I might as well make the most of the newly returned mojo!

My card

And a closer view of the image panel

The insert and envelope
Materials used:
  • 15cm square white, 250gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • 13cm and 12½cm square white card panels - for front and insert
  • 13½cm square of blue card, for matting
  • Stamp sets used: Creative Expressions "Urban Beats" (one of my all time fave sets for masculine cards) / Hero Arts "Notebook brush strokes" set  / Stamplorations Sentiment builder "Thanks" set / Paper Artsy Hot Picks "HPTX01"
  • I stamped the urban beat "tyre track" and the Paper Artsy "splatter" image using Brilliance blue ink
  • brush stroke notebook circle stamped using Brilliance jade green ink
  • Urban beat "grungey star" image stamped using Memento Paris Dusk ink
