New toys to play with....!

You may be forgiven for thinking that I have totally dropped off a cliff. Well, I can confirm that I am still alive and kicking and have in fact managed to make 4 whole cards this weekend! I know, I was stunned too! Unfortunately, I am not massively happy with any of them but refuse to put them in the bin so will be sharing them with you in the coming days. My mojo appeared fine and they went together easily enough but I didn't get that "I'm satisfied" feeling at the end of them... very odd!

This was my first card of the weekend and I actually think it is the one I like the least, which I find weird as I love all of the individual elements! I've been after some Kraft CS and this American Crafts DP for ages and so was pleased to finally get my hands on some to have a play. It was also an opportunity to ink up this super cute Gorjuss girlie from set 2, a recent 'shared' purchase with my pal Sheila. In my head, this card wasn't going to look like this, it just didn't translate brilliantly!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Sugar Nellie - Gorjuss Set 2.
Paper: American Crafts 'Everyday', Bazzill Kraft CS, Core'dinations CS.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copic markers.
Embellishments: Card Candy, crochet flower and ribbon from stash.

Hope you have all had a great weekend and aren't missing those blisteringly hot days too much!
