Our main order of business is this week's MojoMonday #249 card. I'm using the colours from PlayDate Cafe #139 and some loving inspiration from CropStop#79.
Gold and silver ... a difficult mix for me but therein lies the challenge. I'm not entirely convinced by the outcome, but it's another Christmas card in my stash and I'm not complaining.
|All vellum, no paper here. I used pieces from Papermania's Christmas Carol Signature Collection.|
|The ornament is a stamp from WMS Vintage Ornaments set. I heat embossed it with Holographic Silver EP. It's got a very fine shimmer, not entirely obvious in the picture. Finally, I cut it out with Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornaments die.|
|The sentiment is from WMS Compact Sentiments set, stamped in Brilliance Dew Drop Galaxy Gold. Gold and silver ribbons do their part to uphold the colour brief.|
|Foam tape to give the ornament a lift.|
|On the inside, I stuck to the warm tones and added some bling to perks things up.|
Now, on to our weekend exploits:
It was Snoopi's 6th birthday yesterday. (That's Snoopi with an "i", like Toni, Randi etc.) As always, we went on a bike ride to the most westerly tip of continental Europe ... a far away place called "Cabo da Roca ... onde a terra se acaba e o mar começa" (Cape Roca ...where the land ends and the sea begins). Actually, it's not that far away for us, about 25miles / 40kms from where we live but it's a spectacular ride with breathtaking views all the way to the destination. Once there, Snoop thought it necessary to sprinkle the local vegetation while we stumbled about on the rocky terrain, fighting gale force winds. I took these pictures of Snoop-dog before we set out on our windy wingding.
|The birthday girl all geared up and ready to roll. Conan's getting impatient, but I don't care - Mama's too busy taking pictures!|
|My little pumpkin in her pink helmet and riding harness. A born biker chick. What a poser, eh?!|
|Ok, now's she's just being cheeky!|
|That's my cue to hop on! And off we rode into the wind....and boy, was it windy!!! (Next time we'll take the car!)|
|We stopped for coffee and cake. She's looking straight at me, perplexed... perhaps a little peeved that I selfishly devoured her birthday cake.|
That's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week and I'll see ya soon!
Granola muffin (something healthy for a change!) and
