Yippee! I Got My Mojo Back!

I found it, I found it! My Mojo has been hiding but I'm pleased to report that I've found it! Yep, I'm back to my usual, bright and colourful self and I have found a new favourite colour combination...... lime green and fuchsia! This is the second card I've made this month using this colour scheme and I love it!

I used this weeks Friday Sketchers sketch on the layout of this card and I have to say, I found it a joy to work with. The card was so stress-free to make, it just fell together if you know what I mean.


The cardstock is Bazzill Bling (Feather Boa and Bank Roll) and the papers are a digital freebie which can be found here. The cutsie-pie image (mounted on approximately 4 million 3D pads!) is the Shabby Chic Magnolia stamp that Sheila sent me in our recent SS swap. Doesn't Tilda look cute?! The sentiment is from a Studio G clear stamp set which I also received in the swap. As ever, the card was finished off with adhesive gems, ribbon and flowers.

Unfortunately, the picture lets this card down as I had all sorts of problems getting a decent one. Bazzill Bling may be lovely in the flesh but it is an absolute pain in the bum to photograph as it is so shiny and you end up with loads of glare from the flash. I ended up turning the flash off to get a better pic which is why it has a funny blue tinge.....

Even with the weird blue tinge, I hope you like it as much as I do!


P.S. I had a message from Vicki last night to say congratulations for making it into Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine this month! I didn't even know that my cards were going to be in there so I am now VERY excited. I know that it'll probably be just a tiny corner of the letters page with a few mini pics of my cards but, I don't care! I'm in print - WOO-HOO! ~x~
