No mojo

Well yet again I've lapsed in updating my blog, I have all the best intentions in the world to update it every week as doing it everyday would be impossible, but things happen and I never get round to doing it and before I know it a month or more has gone by, that and the fact I lost my mojo and really couldn't come up with any ideas at all. It'll be worse when my son starts the school hols as we'll be trying to keep him occupied during the day and I'll be recovering on the evenings :)

Anyway lets get the ball rolling.

I always seem to use Daisy from the Sugar Nellies range when I make these wall hangings, but then she's my favourite of all them. She was coloured in with Copics and as usual I've forgotten to make a note of the colours. White card was embossed with Cuttlebug 'Roses' butterflies were done with Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly double punch and Classic Butterfly. Plain and scalloped circles done with nesties. Ribbon from stash.

This was an order from a friend for her dad. Cream card embossed with Cuttlebug 'Textile', sentiment was stamped then written over using a Sakura metallic pen. Border punched with EK Success 'Diamond Lace', ribbon again from stash.

This is the card to my OH from our son, I tried to get him to colour in the image himself, but he was more into playing with his Tech Decks, but I managed to get him to write 'Daddy' on the front, though it's not that clear. Image is Forever Friends 'Daisy Bear' you'll notice that there's no daisy, that's because I didn't want the flower on for this card. Coloured in with Copics, die cut shapes were done with Nellies 'Eastern Rounds', spotty paper from Craftwork Cards 'Sorbet Souffle Richie' pack.

This is a Greeting Farm image, Twinkle Tots Max, again good old Cuttlebug embossing folders to the rescue 'Happy Birthday' which was then sanded to give it a distressed look. Max coloured with Copics, and sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

I belong to a monthly RAK club on FeejDesigns, and I just couldn't think what to do, so I had to send something that I'd already made, which I hate doing. Hopefully it's arrived at it's destination by now. Flower Fairy from Crafters Companion and coloured with Copics, paper is by Rico Design

Paper from Craftwork Cards 'Sugar & Spice' white card and scalloped circle embossed with Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' circles cut with nesties, numbers made with Cuttlebug 'Alphabet Dies 'Fancy Pants', ribbon from stash.

After having had four boys, I was really happy to finally make a baby girl card for a friend and buy a little girly outfit! I have to say this was inspired by Shirley Drew at Craft Inspirations and I've put my own take on her design.
Paper is from Craftwork Cards 'Sugar & Spice' butterflies as already previously mentioned, hearts done with Martha Stewart 'Lace Heart' border punch. Flowers, buttons and brads from stash. Baby lettering done with 'Fancy Pants' Alphabet dies from Cuttlebug.

I didn't want the boys to feel left out as I know they would have been so excited to have a baby sister. Hearts embossed with Cuttlebug Folder 'Kimmy Luvs', lettering as before.

Greeting Farm 'Twinkle Tots Izzy, I think she's a real cutie and could overtake Daisy as being my favourite. Paper is Papermania 'Exquisite'. Izzy was coloured in with Copics, corners were cut with 'Vintage' 1 of a set of 4 dies. Flowers from stash.

That's it for now, going to have a browse and maybe attempt some crafting a bit later. Hope you like what I've done so far.

I've not done many cards recently although the plans are in my mind. Currently recycling some old kits and making up notelet sets for my best friend for Christmas I know that she will love them. I need to clear all my old card stuff out and then restock
