Creative Crew Challenge Week 18 - Ribbons

Its Tuesday morning and the week is flying by yet again. I have my daughter off school with suspected Chicken Pox she has 3 or 4 spots, but no more seem to have surfaced since yesterday. I suspect it could just be a rash, but the school were worried as there have been a few cases already. Im not complaining as you all know i hate the school run, and at this time of year they are not doing much work as they are winding down for the summer break.

I hope you are all weathering the heat! i must admit ive welcomed the cooler weather with open arms, the heat was definitely taking its toll on me.

Unfortunately i have lost my MOJO and havn't been able to motivate myself to do any crafting. I hope this changes soon, as i have just received my new Mary Hall stamps and should really ink them up.

Its already week 15 at the Creative Crew Challenge. I hope you will join us this week in the challenge set by our lovely Paula, this week we want you to use ribbons. Thats not a problem for me, as i adore ribbons!!! However i cheated this week, i have used a ready made topper and added some ribbon detail, hope you like it!

As many of you know ive not been feeling very creative lately, my MOJO has gone walkabouts and im feeling very lethargic. I made this card the week before last for a challenge, but never got round to posting it. This is an old Milo decoupage image that i had made up just waiting for mounting and was perfect to send out with a recent RAK. I am loving these little dogs aren't they cute?

My lovely friend Fiona, gave birth to a baby girl named Isla last week and this is the card that i made for her. This is an old Stamps Happen image, i am adoring these fairies. Infact if anyone has any more of this fabulous images please can they contact me, i would love to buy some images from you.

Lilac and pink are amongst my favourite colours, and they look so delicate on this image, with stickled wings as you would expect from me!

I hope that my inspiration and MOJO returns soon, and hopefully ill be back later with another card, you never know!! have a good day and much love Linda x

Lovely cards, Linda. My MOJO has gone on hols I think, lol! I have two cards to do, so hope its back soon. Take care of yourself, hugs and love Heidi xxx

Chris said...

Hi Sweetie, sorry you've been feeling lethargic but I think the hot weather does that to you and it takes a while to get back to normal. I'm sure your mojo will return just as soon as you're feeling a bit more full of energy. Your cards are really gorgeous Linda, just love those puppies too, so sweet and the little image on Fiona's card is wonderful. I will have to see if I can find your email address on your blog, as I had been wondering if Fiona had had her baby, it was so good to find out she has. Haven't seen her in the comments this week so thought it must have happened. Would love to get her address from you and send her a card too, she's such a sweetie. Speak soon then, hugs, Chris xx

Chris said...

Hi again Sweetie, can't seem to find an email address for you, I'd be so grateful if you could email me at christinedark@googlemail.com if you have a minute. Chris xx

Speak soon,love and hugs

All fantastic cards Linda.

My mojo had an extended holiday I think as it certainly didn't come back with me. But I think it's back now so I'm sure yours will soon return.

Hope you are keeping well.
