Not MIA but Mojo-less

Hello, sorry for my missing status lately, life sometimes gets in the way of crafting lol. Hopefully things will get better soon, still been making cards (although to be honest they all look the same) but my camera disappeared so have had to scan these ones in. Having new carpet in my bedroom so had to empty the room and everything got dumped everywhere lol, I am sure it is here somewhere lol.

Anyway onto the card, I used the aa video bay from Mo and loved colouring this one, I had to use bright blue and was so surprised the papers matched so well. I bought both of the variations of this stamp and can see me going back to get the girl version too.

Waste Not Wednesdays - New Challenge

Well I have made a card for Lisa's new challenge, it isn't a challenge blog just a challenge to herself to use her uninked and unprinted stamps and digis. I know we are all guilty of buying something pretty and then never using it so I thought i would join in and I have used a previously uninked stamp. I bought this in the summer so not so long ago but I knew that it would probably have sat in my draw for a while if I hadn't decided to take part in this challenge. Now I have inked it of course I remembered why I bought it and had a blast colouring it.

I made a bit of a mistake when colouring his horns so decided to cover them with fuzzy fur and they look much better and also feel fab too. He is glossy accented to within an inch of his life too.

Chocolate Mice

I think I am obsessed lol, if I see a stamp with chocolate on I feel the need to buy it but if it has mice and chocolate I find it impossible to resist. I have penny black, lili of the valley, mouse house and now hot diggity dog as well, where will it end lol.

This card was made entirely from snippets, from the card the image is stamped on to the card blank all found in the snippet draw so I feel that I can enter into Di's first snippet challenge.

The chocolates are from an old Daisie Company kit and I found them all printed and ready to go in my paper draw. A quick cut out and glossy accent and perfect embellishments.

As I have said before I seem to have a lot of chocolate themed items and this sentiment was bought from Elzybells before they closed, I also bought the chocolate brilliance ink just for the name....chocoholics anonymous anyone......

2012 Already

Wow it is hard to believe it is 2012 already, seems like only yesterday I was starting this blog.

Today's card is for my cousin who celebrates her 29th Birthday today, I can still remember the film I was watching when we got the call to say she had arrived. The film was "Towering Inferno" if you were wondering lol.

Anyway onto the card, I bought one of those small sewing machines from Instore/Poundstretcher and this is my first attempt using it. I know I have covered up most of the sewing but if you could see it you would understand why lol. Not the fault of the machine which is fab by the way but more the operator. More practice is required I think.

Happy New Year and a card

Happy 2012 to everyone, hope you are all feeling great this morning and there is no lingering hangover lol. Quiet evening here, takeaway curry and a few glasses of wine and feel bright and cheery this morning.

Has anyone made any new years resolutions....I did last year and wasn't very good at sticking to them so none from me this year lol.

Anyway onto the card, made for my Aunt whose birthday is tomorrow, no chance of her spotting it though as she doesn't even surf.
