Cute Card Thursday challenge


The challenge this week over at Cute Card Thurday blog is to create a card using bright colours. So here's my contribution. I've used this cutie image by Penny Black and coloured him using twinkling H20's and stickles. Cuttlebug embossing folder. The patterned paper is from the new Papermania Naughty and nice Christmas pad. Sentiment stamp is HOTP and has been embossed with silver embossing powder.
So sorry I've not been around lately, I've had a busy week at home. My mil has very kindly had my daughters for most of the week for me to get on with my housework and ironing. To be honest I've not felt in the mood for making cards as my 'mojo' just up and went. I really struggled to make this card, every time I go into my little craft room, I find myself looking at all my stash and wondering where on earth to start, then just walk back out again. I really need a boost of crafting confidence at the mo. I'm sure my mojo will come back, perhaps once the kids have gone back to school I'll be more in the mood, mind you can't believe how quick these hols have gone to think the children will be back to school next week, oh my goodness!!! I hope everyone is keeping well, I shall try and visit everyone throught the evening, love to you all

A lovely card with gorgeous papers - I'd never have known that you'd struggled with it unless you'd said! I'm sure your mojo will come back once you've shipped the kids back off to School and have a few moments to yourself again :o)
