Thinking of You!

Evening all! I am sooooo sorry I haven't been around for a while! My mojo is still AWOL and I have done very little crafting over the past 2 months. In fact the only crafting I have done is at the SU workshops I attend, run by the fabulous Jules!

I have had a few comments from fellow bloggers saying they would like to see me blogging again, so for you I have decided to upload one of the cards I made before the crafting drought began! It is using the very first stamp that I bought, and she is still one of my favourites!


Image: 'Maggie with Flowers' by Sugar Nellie. Coloured with Koh-i-noors and Sansodor.


Paper: MME Penny Lane Glittered stack

Sentiment: Hero Arts

Tools: Nellie Snellens frames, sponges & SU Old Olive ink for distressing

I've never really gone for the green/purple combo before but I was inspired by the papers. I am pleased with how this card turned out though and have decided this is definately more my style. There are some really talented people out there who can use multiple papers/CS/Flowers/Buttons on their cards and make them look fabulous! However, I am not one of them! I have come to the conclusion that I should stick to what I know and do best, and that is the CAS style!

Well thanks for stopping by, I can't promise that I will be posting again anytime soon, but I think my mojo is slowly coming back. I have been looking at all your fabulous blogs and it is certainly giving me inspiration! I'd also like to thank everyone for their support and kind words I've had recently!

I am also going to Julies 'one for the boys' SU class tomorrow with my mum and I am looking forward to it, so fingers crossed my mojo will return soon!

Big hugs to you all

Vicky ~x~
