Monday Mojo

Yikes! I almost forgot the Monday Mojo this week! It's been quite a hectic weekend and it totally slipped my mind.

I took the chance to make a card for DH who is to be 40 in a couple of weeks. OK so it's not kind but he will see the funny side (unless his sense of humour gets left behind with his thirties!). I wanted to show you how the downloads can interact with photos, and how great pictures are on greeting cards. It has been a favourite embellishment of mine for years, you can' get much more personal than that!

The card uses Henry Hare from the Animal Magic collection to help me point out the crows feet around this poor man's eyes.

I made another sentiment circle and it's a little cruel, the wording reads "Age is not just a number, it's you getting old!". To soften the blow I placed a crown on top of his head (even though my daughter Aimee proclaimed it to be "girlie"). I think guys like a little humour on their cards, and lets face, you need someone to put a smile on your face when you hit the big 4-0! He he


...and here is the sentiment just for you if you have a 40 year old-to-be to make a card for. Click for large version then right-click and "save as". Usual copyrights apply.



Don't forget to enter yesterday's challenge.



Bye for now
