2 posts in one day ~ are you impressed?
I just couldn't resist giving the new sketch on Mojo Monday a try.
As usual, it's a great sketch
and there's some gorgeous work from the design team to check out.
Here's my card. The stamp is from See D's Piece of Cake set.
I used Glossy Accents on the filling and icing,
and tried really hard to show you that glossy effect on the photo.
If you click on the picture, the larger image does show it a little better.
The paper is Papermania Simply Elegant
and the ribbon and bloom are from my stash.
Cute Card Thursday
so go and check out the great cards by the design team for some inspiration.
The 'I like driving in my car' is from the Madness song.
I used the cute Taxi design and Little Big Dots backing paper
from Pink Petticoat
It's a 3D clear gloss, that dries to a hard, shiny finish...
perfect for the car's paintwork.

they have a 'Something Chocolate' challenge.
and I can't wait to see the challenge entries.
Here's my project.
Valentine Heart Biscuits dipped in Dark Chocolate.
dipped them in dark chocolate and wrapped them in cellophane bags,
tied with ribbon.
I cut the lid off a plain white box and used a strip of card,
fastened at each end with brads, as a handle.
The boxes are decorated with papers that were free from craft magazines,
and ribbons and blooms from my stash.
Have a Happy Valentine's Day everyone

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
Your project must contain nothing new.
Head on over there to look at the great DT projects
and the other challenge entries.
The prize is the wonderful new CD Teentastique,
The card I used was all scrap.
The lemon and blue gingham material is left over from last weekend's project,
which you can see further down my blog.
The buttons I cut off hubby's shirt...... lol* (old shirts, of course).
The stamp was a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.
The blue checked paper was a freebie from another mag
and I found the paper clip, lurking at the bottom of a drawer.

It's been ages since I did any sewing and I just had one, ready-made bag to try and copy.
Well, after surgery for breast cancer,
which drains any fluid which might accumulate, into a small drainage bag.
As you can imagine this can be quite uncomfortable and awkward.
Putting the drainage bag into one of these little cloth bags,
just helps to support it and allows you move around a bit easier.
Lets face it.. it also looks a lot nicer.
