Mojo cocktail

Oooh I just lurve these colours together!

I've made this simple card for these challenges:

The gorgeous cocktail stamp is from the 'Cheers to you' set by Stampin' Up, I just love it and you can own this set too by contacting me as I'm now a Stampin' Up demonstrator (I'll be creating a new blog especially for SU stuff soon). I also used Pixie Pink and Tempting Turquoise card stocks and matching grosgrain ribbon too. So lovely to have everything co-ordinated.

I had to 'nip' out this morning to Argos to collect a V-tech camera I'd ordered for Zac's second birthday on Friday. I thought it would be a good idea to take him with me (don't worry he hasn't seen the camera!!) as it was raining a bit and he loves splashing about in puddles. So wellies and raincoat on - out we went. It took me flippin' forever to get from the car to the shop and back because he had to stop and jump in every puddle and say 'hello' and bye-bye' to every poor soul who walked by us. Then we nipped in Boots to get some ointment for Blake and he discovered the 'hidden' cupboards on the front of the pharmacy counter. I nearly died when I looked down and he'd strewn about 500 flyers and leaflets all over the floor!

Next time we'll take the buggie!



  1. lovely card - nice vibrant shades and elegant design. Thank you for joining in my challenge.

  2. Love love your card Vcitoria, I can't wait to see your new SU blog!
    Your shopping trip sounded fun...and I thought taking my husband out Christmas shopping was a nightmare! So sweet though, saying hello and goodbye to everyone, my mum would laugh as apparently I used to do that too lol!

  3. You've just got to love them when they get to this age ! Card's beautiful, great colours. Sue x

  4. Great card - fab bright colours! Morgan used to say hello and wave at everyone, but Dex is completely different and seems terrified of people! Lisa x

  5. Gorgeous colours - Stampin' up colour combos are adoreable aren't they! Love your card, really cute. Yah for Zac, love inquisitive little ones! Jo x

  6. Your so cute! I love mischievous little boys! My son always had to stomp all the water out of a mud-puddle! Enjoy.... time flies and he will be grown! Your card is so pretty! Great color combo! I too love how SU coordinates everything!

  7. Great card! I love the colour combo and that stamp is cute!

  8. Hi Victoria

    I too love those colours together - but they never look that good when I use them LOL!!!

    Loving what you have done here. Simple but great image too!

    Love the story of your day. I love splashing in puddles too - but have never strewn leaflets across the floor of Boots before. I doubt I look cute enough to get away with it somehow!!

    Actually, I haven't found the "hidden" cupboards doors yet - I will be looking for them next time I visit!! LOL!!!

    Thank you for playing along with Allsorts this week.

    Love Jules xx
