Hand cut Christmas

The DCM challenge is set by Tracie this week and she's asked us to include some hand cutting on our cards. I had a total nightmare day yesterday where my mojo definitely left home but I managed this today. Not quite sure about it but I guess it's OK.



Tree was hand drawn and cut from a piece of thick card (back of a notebook) then covered with white core card and distressed. The big M and C were hand drawn and cut and the rest of the greeting stamped with alpha stamps and snipped into random shapes. I added a bit of inking and gel pen detail, a snippet of cuttlebug textured card, a star brad and a piece of ribbon to finish. Oh, and some piercing, of course ;o)

Fab card.
Everytime I come on here & see the angel I remember my sister's wedding day. She lives in Newcastle now & married in Langley Castle, Hexham. I was photographer one year ago last month...how the time flys.

these naughty AWOL mojos need a severe talking-to! Maybe mine's gone off to play with yours 'cos it's def gone missing!

However it looks as though you've reined yours back in because this card is a beaut!

Wow. If this is what you come up with when your mojo leaves I'd love to see what happens when you have your mojo! This is awesome! My first thought was "wow, that's really pretty!"
