Paper Players #93 & Mojo Monday MOJO239

Can you believe I found some time to make cards this week! OMG! It's all thanks to my friend Jo (hi Jo!). I was planning to spend Tuesday catching up on some housework, but Jo caught me in the car park at school after I dropped the big boys off. Conversation went something like this:

J: What are you up to today?

L: Nothing much, just a bit of housework.

J: Oh, do you have to?

L: *snort* NO! What do you have in mind?

J: I feel like making cards.

L: Ok... let's go!

I've come to the conclusion that I'm really not very dedicated to my housewifely duties, and will abandon them with the slightest provocation :) Yay me!

Anyway.. we did manage to get a bit of card making done while our three little terrrors ran around harassing  each other (well, it was more like my two terrors harassing her's), and eating rice crackers.

Here's what I ended up with for the challenges I decided to enter (and it will be a birthday card for my Nan, so bonus!).

The Paper Players #93 had a tic tac toe challenge - to pic three squares from their challenge board and include those elements on your card. I chose square card, ribbon and designer paper. The DSP I used was the gorgeous Sale-A-Bration paper Everyday Enchantment (love it!) and I used the organza ribbon from SAB as well.

I combined these elements with the sketch challenge over at Mojo Monday - Round or Square.

I'm hoping to get some more work done on my craft room this weekend, but it's not looking promising.. unless this rain keeps up and saturday morning soccer is cancelled ;)


  1. How pretty Lou, definately worth skipping the housewrok for!! 😊

  2. I so fell in love with your card! I already submitted one card to the same challenge using the same blocks in the Tic Tac Toe.

    I used your card as my inspiration for another card design. Not only did I make one card, I made two! I am trying my best to use up my stash and I was able to use up quite a bit of it by making two of these.


  3. Very pretty, Lou! I love this paper and the colors you used. Your flower is gorgeous! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  4. Lou, this is so pretty! I love the fun color combo and how you used the sketch. The layered flower is a great touch along with that lace punched border. Just beautiful! Thanks so much for joining us this week at The Paper Players! :)

  5. Lou your card is lovely and bright,the house work will always be there,so enjoy card making .
