My mojo






I was starting to get worried, my mojo went out partying with Gamblemom's (Karen) and I didn't think it was ever going to come home, it was obviously having lots of fun and wasn't having to work. Well, it's home now, bleary-eyed, smelling terrible and with a terrible headache!



I'm glad to see it though, even if it is refusing to do much work! These are the cards I made over the weekend!


The frog card I made by just deciding to go in my stamp room and do some coloring with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Once I finished coloring it and it had dried, I noticed it went with some scraps of paper I had left from a card I did last week, so I used the scraps.


The row of frogs at the bottom of the card are embossed in white embossing powder, so they are all raised and shiny and finally there was a big gap at the top, so I used three brads.


I had some really nice ribbon that I could have used on this card, but it was competing with the paper, so I left the ribbon off!


I promise after this card, I am going to step away from these colors, lol! I just love these colors. I have had this card in my head for a few days and I am really pleased with how it turned out!

The flower is cut from acetate with my Cricut and the "hi" is my A Muse small polka dot alpahabet, one of the most versatile sets that I own.

Again, I used a brad, these little wonders are so useful and I find myself reaching for brads constantly. I really need to find a cheap supplier of brads.
This was a card that I cased from a card that I saw on www.cricut.com by a really talented artist called Regina Easter. I really wanted to attempt it and I am so happy with how it turned out. Wow, this post is just like buses, you don't get anything for ages and then three cards come along at once, lol!
