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.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Addicted to Stamps - For a Boy or a Man

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog and for all your comments and encouragement. I will try and get round to visit everyone over the next couple of days and hopefully it won't be another 2 weeks before my next post!
