Well I think ex work has taken my mojo as well as my job!! Can't think what to make, where to start & have been sat at my desk now for over 2 hours, doing nothing much other than flicking from web page to web page!! Not good enough, MOJO come back!

Above is a photo of escaped MOJO, please let me know if you see it anywhere!

LOST MY JOB

Well today my job went. I had been off sick with back problems since the beginning of the year and it has taken has taken until just 3 wks ago to get me to be able to have physio (and that is with a lot of pushing on behalf of my Dr to rush things through). I have had just 3 sessions & work reckon I have now had long enough & have ended my contract. Im totally gutted, I thought I was working for a good, fair company, who would have given time for the physio to start working. Three sessions is NOT long enough but because I can't get a specific return to work date from my Dr, thats it, finished.
Im so upset.

This is a card that was commissioned for me to make for a local preacher. The wording was specifically given to me & had to go on the front of the card.

i have made this card using all the different elements of allissa-designs freebie Easter giveaways. they are so cute & i am really pleased with this card. I hope you all like it too. Below is the link to take you to the page that she has been kind enough to set up for anyone to ask for the sheets.

Stamped & hand coloured card


This is one of my very very few stamped & coloured cards, Im not very good at it, but would love to improve, I need a few good lessons from someone really good.

If I had the copics on offer as blog candy (see http://charmedcrafts.blogspot.com/) , I might be able to improve big time :-)) here's hoping.

Treasure Box



The treasure box isn't quite finished yet. I need to decorate properly & add some little tags to the lids of each box so that they can be opened without damaging the box.
Any comments will be welcomed.

ATCs


My other love, aside from card craft, ATCs. I am addicted to these tiny works of art and have collected quite a few in the time I have been swapping. The ones on show are all my own, all swapped with other ATCers.
I made this card for a very special lady in my life. After my mum, she is he next closest female to my heart & it was for her 70th birthday back in January.
I hope you all like it as much as I enjoyed making it for her.

I love this card, the fan was pre-made, and i decorated using decoupage images, then placed onto red mirri board & used a tiny bit of glitter, just to give the whole thing a bit of lift.
The card was given to one of the girls who worked with me & left to go live in another part of the country.
Well, I have just started my own blog. It wil ltake me a while to get the hang of this, so bear with me.
