Mojo Monday #118


Hi girls. Glad to have you here for a quick visit to my corner of crafting blogland. Thank you for taking the time to pop in and I hope you find something to encourage your mojo juices.
Well this is the big day - hubby and I are setting off to head south to spend the rest of the holidays with my son John and his wife Sarah, aka Lil-paper-pixie. I'm really looking forward to it because Sarah and I will be crafting all day together no doubt. The journey should take us about 5 hours, weather permitting, so I won't be able to leave many comments today but will be back on Monday as normal.
I made this card for the latest Mojo Monday challenge and I decided to break with my usual practice and produced a card without an image in it. I'll let you be the final judges as to whether this works or not. I used Bazzil base card plus a lilac card from the Paper Mill, a striped paper which is unfortunately unnamed and a spotted paper from the Nancy Watt - "The Summertime Dream Collection". The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are handmade from lilac card.
Now I decided to add a wee bit of glitter on the flowers for effect and clumsy me lost my grip on the glitter jar and the whole card got it. Lol. Oh well it certainly has some glitter. I would love it if you could spare the time to leave a comment to let me know if you think this works. I honestly value your opinions. I hope you will call back sometime but in the meantime enjoy your crafting time.
Hugs,
