The return of the mojo!

It's a great feeling when the old mojo comes back isn't it? Having been without mine for many weeks I was feeling a bit low and lacking confidence. Now the house is getting back to normal and I can access my craft gubbins more easily I sense an improvement. The fact that the sun was shining this morning also helped a great deal.

So first things first I wanted to play a little more with the Patti Picklicious CD. I printed a selection of yummy papers out yonks ago but they've been put to one side whilst the decorating has been in full flow. There is a stunning butterfly image on the CD which I printed onto vellum and made this card. Possibly one of my fave makes yet. I just added a touch of glitter to the wings.
It's all Patti Picklicious apart from the card blank which is dotted swiss, the lace, some green card and the doodling.

My next make was the next DCM challenge so that will go up tomorrow. Lastly I had a little play with some bits and pieces I bought from Craftwork Cards. By then the old mojo was getting a bit tired mind you! I have been doing other bits and bobs at the same time as cards, plus it was celebration afternoon at Maddie's nursery so I went along to see what she's been up to there.
Everything on this is from Craftwork Cards. I love the quality of the products and the little owls are fab! When I was at the show on Sunday, I had a set of the new stamps in my hand but for some reason put them back again. I could kick myself. The other thing I'm annoyed about is that I bought some dies by Go Kreate that are similar to Nestabilities and I can't find the bloody "c" plate for my Cuttlebug. I really wanted to play with those today :o( Grrr.

No worries - will stamp you some of the ones I bought (when I eventually stop looking at them and do something constructive with them!)

Glad Mo Jo is back and looking very fab!

Post Pals said...

Hello, I read that you do card challenges and I wondered if you would consider doing a challenge with a twist.

I run Post Pals, we feature seriously ill children (most have cancer or are going through transplants) and their siblings on our website and invite members of the public to log on from around the world and send a card to a child. The aim is to make the child smile, but we have found it also helps their self esteem and parents often open them with a child during a procedure to distract them.

At the moment we are helping 120 children but they aren't getting much post.

I was wondering if you would do a challenge, instead of people just scanning in their card for the theme but they actually make one for a Post Pal child and send it off.

I can't begin to tell you how much receiving a card means when your ill and isolated.

Thank you,

ps)You can see a video about what we do here
