Mystical 4 photos challenge

Over at Mystical Scrapbooks the 2nd October challenge is to use 4 photos on a layout.
These 3 photos are of the religious artifacts at Melk Abbey plus an outside view.

Stift melk 001.jpg

We visited there while on our boat cruise.

I used a neutral background paper with brown for my matting.
The top strips of golden yellow match the exterior of the abbey.
I've used a wood veneer which has been gilded with inca gold.
Finally, a quote as my title.

Mojo Monday #470 and Li'l red wagon

You will have noticed by now that I've stopped using my counterfeit kit for this month...I finished early.
There is one more layout to come in our blog hop on 24th.
Why not come back then.

Today's card is for Mojo Monday.
I've used apricot, orange and fawn.
My embellishments are unusual combination, but it works.

I stamped the sentiment and the scroll pattern on the background.
(I need to use my stamps more)
The large silver flower brad sets it off don't you think?
It came with matching rhinestones, which are above "birthday"
Here is the original sketch

Over at the theme is Let's party.
I've made a birthday card using cupcakes (a necessary ingredient at Birthday parties)
To that I added a pink border strip and rosebuds as well as my stamped sentiment.

2 Christmas cards

My first card is for Merry Monday. They want plaid.
I've made a smaller sized card which is landscape ,so opens on the right of this picture.
I used 2 co-ordinating papers and a sentiment.
The next one is for  Christmas card Challenges where you are asked to add a decoration.
I've used an assortment of papers on here. (Why not? It is Christmas) :)

Through the craft room door. are having an Anything goes challenge.

I've made this card by fussy cutting around the roller skating boot image, including the feathers and swirls. I added a paper doiley and 3 silver enamel dots.
I particularly like the quote.
The card would be for a variety of purposes.

Jingle Belles

At Jingle Belles they are asking for pink Christmas cards.
I've used the other part of that lumpy white handmade paper I used on the last card plus a touchy feely suede paper featuring pink swirls.
The NOEL wood veneer sentiment I painted to match.

Sketch #155

This is the most recent sketch at Feeling Sketchy.
I'm attending a 70th birthday celebration soon and know the man involved will appreciate the joke.
And at ABC challenge the criteria is Red ribbon and reindeer
I'm also adding it on ABC Christmas challenge where Under the pile is the criteria.
I've been hoarding that Christmas ribbon for a few years now and am trying to use it up.

Send a smile4kids challenge wants a birthday card or any celebration for kids.
There's another Graphic45 image on this card.
The Wizard of Oz is an all time favourite.
I've used a bigger picture plus 2 smaller ones which are mounted on foam tape.
 I'm sure a 5 year old would love it.
