Blog hop on Sunday and Mojomonday challenge today

Sorry I've been missing this week. I've been poorly. Too poorly even to craft, that's how bad it was, lol. But I'm better now and looking forward to a packed crafting weekend.

Today I've managed to play along with the Mojomonday challenge. Tomorrow we've got MIL and FIL coming over. It's MIL's birthday on Sunday and I've got a few new box ideas to show her - she loves boxes and bags. Then on Sunday we've got a major blog hop for you. There'll be around 40 of us in total from the In Love With Stamping forum, on 4 loops of 10 (don't worry, if you don't have much time then you can always look at one loop and come back and do the others later) and we'll be showcasing the Sale-abration stamps sets that you can get free with a £45 order (email me to get your free set).

If you haven't been round a blog hop before then just stop back here on Sunday after 10am. My post will link to another, then their's to another and so on until you come back round to me and know that you've finished that loop. We'll also have links to the other loops for a really inspiring day of it.

Back now then to today's card. The Mojomonday challenge this week is this:

And I rotated it to create this:

Stamp set: Punch Bunch
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray, Concord Crush
Ink: Concord Crush, White Gel Pen
DSP: Lap of Luxury
Punches: Scallop Edge, Boho Blossoms, 1" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle, Crop-a-dile
Taffeta Ribbon: Pretty in Pink
Other: Mat Pack, Piercing Tool

The card blank is a landscape A6 of Pretty in Pink. A square of DSP was matted onto a square of Concord Crush. This was then matted onto Basic Gray card and faux stitching was added around the exposed area using the piercing tool, mat pack and white gel pen. A strip of Basic Gray was wrapped with Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon and adhered to the left front of the card. A flat bow was added with glue dots. A 12" strip of DSP was punched with the Scallop Edge punch, concertina folded along each scallop and joined at the ends to create a tube. The unpunched ends were squeezed and pushed into the centre to create the flat flower and secured with a 1" Circle covered in Sticky Strip. The True Friend sentiment was stamped in Concord Crush onto Whisper White card, punched with the 1" Circle and matted onto a 1-1/4" Circle of Concord Crush. This was adhered over the centre of the folded flower. Boho Blossoms were punched from Concord Crush and Pretty in Pink card. The petals were snipped and the flowers shaped then layered in alternate colours. The large hole of the Crop-a-dile was used to punch card for the centres of each flower and these were popped up on dimensionals on the card front.

Hope you have a great weekend and please pop back on Sunday for the blog hop.
