Lost Mojo

Two cards to share today as I haven't been very productive lately.
The first one I made one day when I wanted to do a bit of crafting but couldn't get inspired. Anyway I pressed on using a piece of paper I had made some time ago using spray inks and some flowers made using Dreamees stamps.

This next card I made for my husbands's birthday using Visible image stamps and Distress Inks for the background. Quite simple to create but quite effective I think. 

Really must try and get my mojo back.

What a month

Well it's been a month since I was last here and what a month it has been.
A round of Doctor and Hospital visits and stays for hubby, plus various incidents to cause us a load of grief.
Hoping that things will get better very soon as there is only so much stress you can cope with.

On a brighter note I am going to share some projects I have managed to create.

This first card I made for a very dear friend's birthday later in the month. She doesn't blog so this isn't going to spoil the surprise.  I used Sweet Poppy stencil with texture paste and mica powder heated to create the bubble effect.

For this next one I created the background with Distress Inks and stencil. The main image is a Visible Image stamp which came free with Craft Stamper magazine.

For this one I used paper from my stash and the little image is Clarity and the circles Bee Crafty. Blue and brown is one of my favourite colour combos.

Hopefully things will have taken a turn for the better when I return.

Beautiful things

Spent the day crafting today for a bit of much needed relaxation after a very stressful week. My husband John has been quite poorly this week and we have spent two days in A&E although I wont go into that except to say it was a nightmare.

So here's what I have been up to.
This first panel I created as my Facebook Header using a sentiment stamp I got from Bee Crafty. Well actually all the stamps are from Bee Crafty.

This next one is using Visible Image stamps and freehand notes around the edge.

Now the final one is an Indigo Blu stamp with the colouring and background done with DI and a bit of watercolour ghosting.

 I'm hoping that the coming week will be less eventful, fingers crossed

Kind regard
