I'm back with Mojo and OCCC

Did ya think I'd disappeared off the planet?? I was starting to wonder myself! Life has been crazy busy around here lately & I don't really know where the last 3 months have gone...Ok, that's a lie, I do know where they've gone-they've included trips to perth, hospital visits, couple of days work a week which also means daycare, housework,throw a couple of weddings in for good measure!, buying more of the farm we live on, I think we had a holiday back in Feb! and most recently, I had my 4 wisdom teeth taken out on Thursday.
So, NO stamping for me : ( Actually I did get to a stamp night a few weeks ago-I made 4 or 5 cards but before I could put them up here Mum 'borrowed' them for some ideas, Hi Mum, yes you can keep them!! I decided yesterday that I was going to stamp & found there was a new mojo monday sketch out-it took me ALL day but I did it!

Here's the sketchI used the Always stamp set for this one & the little heart is from In the Spotlight (hostess set).I also used my Paisley background stamp & some ribbon & brads out of the stash. Card base is Chocolate Chip, Paisley is Soft Sky on Soft Sky. I've stamped the bird, hearts & always on Kraft with Choc Chip & Purely Pomegranate with Close to Cocoa/Choc Chip sponging on all but the bird.

For my next card (2 cards in one night!!) I followed a sketch challenge from Our CreativeCorner For this one I used a new fave background-Tres Chic & Embrace Life. I started with a black base, layered with Basic Grey stamped with Tres Chic in Versamark. A little bit of paper from the Ginger Blossom pack, some peircing & a bit of bling.I also used my Border punch-Florentine.

Here is the OCC sketch challenge

And here is my card

Have a great Easter-hopefully I can replace munching on chocolate with stamping!!
