Mama Makes on Hochanda…

Hello crafty friends, I’ve been AWOL but I’ll be round catching up on your blogs this week

I don’t know what’s going on with my blog but some of you could only see 1 card or no cards on my last post (there were 4). I was looking at the page earlier and I can only see 1 picture now but they were fine when I put the post on, I always check the page for spelling etc. I have no idea how to rectify it, I’m not doing anything different from my side so I’m sorry about that


I had a few days away with Jess last week. She had to take some horses to Chelmsford and the girl who was going with her was ill, so I packed a bag and jumped at the chance of a road trip… the joys of being retired!!. The weather was lovely and it was great to spend some time with her. She’s a slip of a thing but thinks nothing of driving those huge horse boxes all over the Country



I have some cards to share today using Mama Makes stamps. Loti is on Hochanda tomorrow with the latest release so make sure you tune in at 8 am. There are some fab samples from the team and a lovely new collection of stamps



I actually added a few more elements to this Z fold card; another flying witch on the inside panel, some more cobweb and another sentiment to the right - but then I forgot to take a picture before I sent it to Loti for the show!



I don’t usually do Halloween but these were fun and it gave me chance to use some Echo Park papers that I’ve had for years

The little characters are adorable and they are by a new artist called Bella Hijabi from the Modest Cat. This set (Monster Mashup) is available on the website now


Hope you like them… just to let you know there are 4 pictures in case its playing silly beggars again!

I’ll be back later in the week with news of a new DT challenge and something exciting for LOTV fans too

Enjoy your Monday folks
