Struggling......

I've received quite a few emails from crafty friends over the last couple of days, all concerned about me and wondering where I am! Thanks for all your concern guys, I really appreciate it. Well, I can report that I am still alive, however 'life' is well and truly kicking in at the moment and I am really struggling to keep up. Work is always crazy at this time of year for me, but this year is especially bad and I am working flat out but barely keeping my head above water. I can't even get out of my office long enough to go to the loo without someone stopping me to ask me a question. That, coupled with family relationship break-ups and one of Ali's best mates being smacked off his bike and ending up in intensive care, have made for a pretty exhausting week. And it's only Tuesday......!

I've also been battling with my mojo for the last few days. I've been faffing around with this card for about 4 days now and I'm still not happy. But, I'm sick of looking at it now, so I thought I would make you lot look at it instead!

Goodie List........
Stamps: High Hopes 'Warm Wishes' -Available from Dies to Die For, Elzybells sentiment.
Paper: Imaginisce - Twitterpatted.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Silver brads and ribbon from stash.

I am really going to try to get round some of your gorgeous blogs soon - I'm missing seeing all of your fabulous creations! Ali is also competing all weekend so I should have some time to craft and just generally catch up a bit. Keep your fingers crossed anyway!

Hope you are all doing well, apologies for yet another whiney post! I swear my next one will be upbeat and cheerful again!

Hi Hun, sorry to hear you're having a rough time at the moment. Hopefully things will improve soon. That old adage is very true..."It never rains but it pours".
Onto the card.......it's fab!! The greens you've used on the cute dragon really back him stand off the page and look 3d. The layout and papers are great.

Take care of yourself. Sending you big (((HUGS)))

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that, it's so rubbish when work and life seem to take over! I know EXACTLY how you feel mojo wise! I hope yours gets better soon, I've had no mojo for over a month now and I'm gutted but can feel it creeping back! No worries with this card though, it's so bright and fun! Such a cute stamp and great colours! xx
