If You Find My Mojo ...

... please encourage it nicely to come back!!!

I was busy earlier in the week making a few things for DD No.1's upcoming birthday (more on that Wednesday) and then yesterday had to sit down and create some cards for next Tuesday's class. Well, somewheres in between my mojo wandered off and got lost and I had a terrible time trying to come up with something I am happy with. I'm still 50/50 on these cards but unless a thunderbolt of inspiration hits me between now and Monday, my Lana ladies will be stuck with them!

I am still endeavouring to use up some of my supplies of retired stuff and these bright and breezy papers appealed to me at the time. I had borrowed the Crazy for Cupcakes set and decided to use that for a range of birthday cards and ... well, if you could see the overflowing state of my rubbish bin, you would have an idea of the angst that went on here! Just as well DD No. 2 was at school!!! LOL

So here they are, my three bright and breezy birthday cards:

All the images are stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with inks and markers. Crystal effects gave them some gloss and dimension as well as hiding a multitude of sins with the colouring! I do see one, however, that needs a couple more corrections ....

Materials used:

  • stamps - Crazy for Cupcakes, Party This Way, Sweet Little Sentiments
  • card - taken with teal, daffodil delight, old olive, rose red, watercolour paper, DSP from retired scrapbooking kit (forgotten the name)
  • other - large oval and scallop oval punches, rose red and old olive ribbon, dimensionals, dazzling diamonds

Thanks for dropping in.

I love these...but also feel for the case of mojo abandon-itis you have contracted at the mo. However, these cards a brilliant, bright and breezy.....and even if the mojo is still has enough life to put the resus paddles on it!!. I love the banner on the single cupcake card..the scissor wk is excellent. Hope it returns to you soon. Take care. ooxx

I have been looking for your mojo but alas I cannot find it, but hey if this is what you do with no mojo I am so jealous.
