Happy Birthday, Papa! Mojo Monday 380 1

MojoMonday380Yesterday was my Dad’s birthday, so the current Mojo Monday sketch came at the perfect time. As a little eye-catcher I chose one of my vintage images, a sweet cutie 🙂
There used to be a doggie sitting next to the boy, but I had to cut him off because he didn’t really look good on the card. Sorry, doggie.
The book page comes from an old, boring fleamarket book which still serves a purpose as craft supply. So here’s my card, I’m looking forward to your feedback 😉


Fusion Card Challenge 1

FCC SketchWhen I make birthday cards, I like to have a look at challenges for inspiration. Just the other day I found a great blog whose busy team actually lists dozens of current challenges! Have a look: – that’s awesome!

This list made me aware of the Fusion Card Challenges which I’ll join for the first time now. Hi Ladies! For the Fusion Card Challenge “Shiny Pink”, I only chose the sketch. Shiny Pink would look funny on a card for a man 😉 It had to be a voucher for a fish dinner, so I headed over to Pinterest and found these funny fishies for inspiration. Some almost forgotten, dark blue cardstock, paper scraps, washi tape and a transparency evolved into this card:

2014-PeterHThat was fun! It’s a little different from the style of my other cards 🙂
