Sunday Mojo #???

Hello All,

Regular visitors of my blog will remember that Wendy stated on her last Mojo challenge that it was her turn to RESENT me with the goodies.  This week it was her turn again and I am beginning to think she may resent me!  This week I  was given this load of "goodies"...

As you can see it is all pink, now I don't have anything against pink per se however when its a selection of Handmade paper in shades of insipid pink I do feel a little inclined to place the whole lot in the recycling! Joking apart I am not a fan of handmade paper and it comes second on my list of craft don'ts, the first being peel offs, there you go just alienated half my audience!!  I'm sure when fashion changes I will fall in love with these items, fickle aren't I!

This selection is what I came up with...

I got the idea of cutting all the papers into squares and making various patchwork items hence the main card was born.  I wanted to use the "lovely" rose petal paper so decided to try something I haven't made since school namely a woven paper heart basket.  Hopefully everyone will have made these at school, its constructed out of 2 sheets of contrasting card stock which are woven together so that when you open them you have a basket.  I think we made these as Christmas decorations and I may make others for Christmas as I am planning a Nordic, gingham and handmade Christmas scheme this year (yep it's one thing I plan stupidly ahead)

There is also a mini card, folded card and tag, I thought I should make a few items as Wendy told me she was planning on Quantity this week, can't wait to see what she makes!  The die I used was a simple Heart die I have no idea where from, which I used to cut hearts form some gingham fabric I had at the back of a comment.  This is the only item I added to the stash apart from some Papermania roses.

I have added a few pictures to show everything off!  I hope you like I must admit I actually enjoyed the couple of hours I spent crafting this lot!  Enjoy...

1 final thought, It's my turn to crash the goodies for next week Think I'm Felling rather grungy!!! 

Also in 2 weeks time Ita form Ireland will be joining us for the challenge I will be sending out the stash to her later in the week!!
