Curtain Call Challenges & Alphabet challenge

My card today is for Curtain call challenges where the theme is woven.



Among the scraps on my desk was a square of hessian.
I chose tawny gold patterned paper named Bazaar.
The flip side had the blue dotted pattern and the border strip is the one I used along the bottom.
After adding flowers and my tiny sentiment , it is ready to give to my friend who loves oranges & gold tones. (She hates the idea of being so old)

 
I'm also entering it on Alphabet challenge where it is Y for you choose.
Finally thanks for looking and PLEASE leave a comment. (Just say hello!)

MOVE challenge at Mystical

At Mystical Scrapbooks there is a cyber crop on and this challenge involves using the word "MOVE" in any way you like.

I searched through some old photos and found this one of me with an old water pump.
My husband was telling me to move the handle up and down, except it was rusted in place.

Shopping our stash and Cardz4guyz

Over at Shopping our stash they want valentines cards without any hearts.
I kept my card "all purpose".
My sentiment says Better together and could equally apply to friends or for an older couple's anniversary etc.

 
At Cardz4guyz they want us to use no patterned paper.
I could have embossed on my cuttlebug ,but decided to use ribbon and brads instead.
 
My sentiment is a ? which means
a) you don't know how old he is or b) you're asking him to explain something.

Mojo Monday

The sketch at Mojo Monday looks like this

 
I've decided to make a male card as they are my biggest sellers.

 
I've taken the photo upright and reduced it upright. In "my pictures" it is upright but on here it goes sideways. If you know why it is doing this please tell me!

Crafting when we can.

I've made an embossed and very subdued card for http://craftingwhenwecanchallenges.blogspot.com.au/ where they want flowers.
These were the 2 remaining flowers from Pink Paislee in my kit.
I matted them on white then lilac and finally on to a white card embossed with gifts.

Studio Challenge and freshly made sketches

Because of the hot weather we are experiencing here in Sydney, I have found time to scrapbook using this month's Counterfeit kit.

This is for the studio challenges and I've chosen a song by Cara Dillon.

http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/c/cara_dillon/standing_on_the_shore.html

The title on my layout doesn't have a G at the end of standing, but otherwise it is the same.

I used colours of blues and greens, the olive green matches Pat's cardigan.
I also used a large p for Pat and j for Julene on the photos.(Good way to use up random consonants).
Yes that tiny dot in the distance is me.

 
and while I'm scrapping I did a card for Freshly made sketches.
Here's mine
