Mojo Monday #166

Hi girls. Thank you for warming up my day with your visit to mt blog. It's an absolute freeze here these days and although we have only had the slightest of snowfalls during the week it arrived with a vengence late Friday night. I hope that while your here you find something that brings a little smile to your eyes and might even inspire you in your own cardmaking.
I was at the doctor today again and he is quite pleased with my progress and I must admit that I am able to do just a wee bit more than I was. I've got another course of antibiotics to clear up any infection caused by the catheter. Thank you all for your kind wishes.
I made this card for the latest Mojo Monday challenge and followed the sketch they gave. The image is a Sarah Kay image I have had for a while but have never used before and I coloured her with my Copics. I used some patterned card from my stash Basic Grey paper called "Dasher". The poinsettia is made using a Marianne Creatable that I borrowed from my friend Kathleen from The Daisy Chain. (Why not give her a visit - I promise you won't be disappointed with what you find there). I made the central Yellow bracts from yellow card I had and everything else is from my stash.
I hope you like this card and would love to know what you think of it because I am feel that there may be something missing. Perhaps you could find a minute to leave a comment. I love reading what you have to say. Your making the effort would be much appreciated.
Thanks again for your visit. I hope you have a great weekend and above all stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,


  1. Hi Fiona , lovely card I don't think there's anything missing at all. I love the image and the fab papers. The Poinsettia is just gorgeous. I'm so glad you're feeling a lot better. Looks like my Mum will be in hospital for a few weeks yet they are trying to get her mobile and assessing her before sending her home. She seems much better medically but not bouncing back as she has done in the past.It may take a while.

  16. Wow Fiona this is gorgeous. I love the colors and the design. I know that it seems like I vanished off the face of the earth, but I have started a new job that takes every minute of my time. When I get home I am so exhausted that I just fall asleep. I need to find a balance so I can get things done. Sorry I've been missing your posts lately but your cards are stunning and I haven't had a chance to post on them all. Just love the one with the green and purple papers.
    Hugs xx
