Allsorts Challenge

Morning folks and time for another challenge card.     The challenge this week from Allsorts is a sketch from my lovely bloggy bud Emma.....and I love this sketch so it will be going in my sketch folder.....oh yes a great source of inspiration when Mr Mojo takes himself off on a jolly.
And it's time to chase away those winter blues and to brighten things up a bit.......I dug out some old favourites....papers and embellies from one of my favourite papercraft companies....WeR Memory Keepers

and another favourite from Penny Black

Papers & Sentiment: WeRMK...White Out Collection
Image: Penny Black
Ribbon....American Crafts

And on the weather front.....things are improving....it was a balmy 4 degrees yesterday...the roads are back to black but are now peppered with potholes.....and I managed to get out with the car and stock up those food cupboards.....let's hope the thaw continues but somehow I don't think we have seen the last of the snow.......catch up with you all later....Hugs Kath xxxxx
Tiff asked....how did I do the umbrella.....I suppose it does look like an umbrella but it is actually a flower that the mice are sitting under.....just stamped onto the patterned paper...cut it out and popped onto 3D foam pads.


  1. Beautiful card, just love those colours and all those layers... glad your weather is improving, the problem with snow is if it comes early like it did this year it seems to want to stay and wait for more!

  2. Love the card....so bright and cheery....on a very grey day.

  3. What a gorgeous card Kath,i love your image and papers.

    Hugs Riet.x

  4. Gorgeous catrd Kath - you're right, that sketch is beautiful. Love the funky colours.

  5. I love this bright and cheerful card. Think we all need cheering up after this awful weather. Had to leave my car at my neighbour's house last night cos now you sink in the snow on our track....as my husband's van discovered!! Hope I can reach it as it was so icy underfoot I could hardly walk and had to go home again this morning - very short dog walk!
