I was on such a good roll the other week with my cards making lots and really enjoying them then all the sudden my mojo disappeared and I came to a complete stop! I LOVE making cards but for some reason the last week I have had no desire to go make cards, now whether this was because I was not feeling too great over the week, had some very distressing news about my Oma and also was out of sorts with the kids going back to school I am not sure. However on Wednesday it was slowly creeping back and I managed to colour up my new magnolia and by yesterday I managed to make her into a card! It is my gorgeous niece's birthday tomorrow so I had the perfect reason to make a card using my new stamp.
I have made my card using this weeks sketch from Friday Sketchers and added some dimension, something I have not been doing a lot of lately my cards have not been layered up in height (I used to always do this) here is a side pic to give you a better idea...
I am also entering this card into this weeks challenge at Make It Colourful which is a colouring challenge, using shadows and depth in you colouring. I think I have managed this.
I resisted the urge to use my Webster papers and went back to some old favorites my October Afternoon papers. I just felt that they suited the image well and as my card is for a 5 year old I wanted it to have a younger feel to it. Anyhow she loved her card to mission achieved!
I am also entering this into the following challenges:
Tuesday throw down - buttons
Magnolia stamp lovers - glitter ( the balloon is but the photo does not really show it)
Craft us crazy - anything goes
Robbie's at a party at the pool at the moment and Mick and Lizzie have gone along so they could have a swim so I have a few hours up my sleeve, wonder if my MOJO will allow me to make a start on another card? Time will tell I imagine.
Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo
