Mini snowman no 6 - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
There's not much crafting going on here again...cricket has taken over this week. Emma was playing at Durham on Monday, Northumberland on Wednesday and Scarborough on Thursday, Friday and today! She's on a 3 day County Cricket residential in Scarborough, playing Lancashire and Derbyshire so we have driven over to watch the games. They are on a lovely site with the cricket pitch overlooking the sea.

Anyway, I have another little snowman to share today. This is the sixth one from the set 9 snowmen that are now available from Lili of the Valley.



I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from First Edition. I've used a Spellbinders snowflake die, and a sentiment stamp from the new release. 

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

Mini Snowman - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
My blog has been really quiet again! We've just got back from a gorgeous week in North Wales. My SIL has a holiday home in Abersoch so we are lucky enough to be able to use it every summer. The weather was a bit hit and miss but we managed to keep busy. We had a lovely day out at Harlech, visiting the castle and rock pooling on the beach, and another afternoon watching a medieval falconry display within the grounds of Criccieth Castle. The only downside was the 6 hour drive home (should be 3 1/2) due to roadworks and heavy traffic!

Anyway onto my card. I have a very sweet little snowman to share today. He is just one of a set of 9 snowmen that will be released from Lili of the Valley later this month.


I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from First Edition. I've used snowflake dies from Spellbinders, Marianne Creatables and Sweet Dixie. The sentiment is also due to be released at the end of the month. There will be Hand drawn sentiments, tags and toppers.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

Due to the rain, a lot of Emma's cricket has been rescheduled! So this week we have 3 different matches all over the place, starting with a match against Staffordshire in Wolverhamptom! I think we might have to travel the night before!

That meant an early start up the A1 at 8am on a Sunday morning! It was worth it...a fabulous game for Emma, followed by a comfy seat in front of the TV watching the world cup...what a game!! Unfortunately, there's still not a lot of crafting going on here!!

It's Alf!

Good Morning Everyone, 
My blog has been a little bit neglected of late...can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I last posted anything. Mr Mojo went on his holidays and every time I sat down to make a card....nothing! I ended up at the local supermarket yesterday to buy a card for my Dad (yes, I did say 'buy!'). I decided there was no way I was going to give him a supermarket card so I finally pulled up my big girl pants and made one!


I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from my box of scraps. I've used a First Edition die set, Memory Box cloud die, a Die naims fence die and a Lawn Fawn sun. The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley.
