Mojo Monday #90

I’m feeling pretty chuffed with myself this morning because thanks to the template from Mojo Monday I’ve finally finished the six card that I have to make for Dad’s birthday and Father’s day.

June always looms like a big black cloud for me, not because I don’t enjoy making cards for dad, far from it…..it’s more to do with coming up with six completely different ideas. Added to that I also have lots of other family and friends birthdays in June and one of those I also have to make three cards for so you can see why I find June daunting.

Well, this year I’ve finished all dad’s cards with thirteen days to spare and all my other ‘June’ cards are done too…phew!

Anyway, as I said, the card is made using this weeks template from Mojo Monday

and three of the new My Minds Eye papers from Andrea Victoria with some added faux stitching and doodling.
