Get Creative January 20th Card Sketch Challenge

Oh where oh where can my mojo be, oh where oh where can it be !!!!!!!!!! well after reading a number of my crafty friends blogs it looks like I’m not the only one who is mojoless ! I reckon the buggers have decided to take a little trip to the U.S of A and are all visiting Cha !!! There is no other explanation,  but one things for sure I hope they return with a suitcase full of inspiration and a few crafty treats wouldn’t go amiss. Actually that would be a fib I have so much stuff, new stuff even,  there is nothing that I need or indeed want but it seems like an excess of crafty goods is not a guarantee !!

Before Christmas I was very lucky to be able to purchase the new Fiskars Fuse Creativity System, The Craftwell ebosser and a fab Janome embellishing machine but zip, nadda,τιποτα ! I still can’t seem to get in the swing of things and not only in the crafty department which is why I struggled so much with the sketch which has been designed for us by the fabulous Irini at Get Creative

I really loved the sketch and there where so many possibilities I even got my Dylusions out but to no avail…..and I  still have pink and purple fingers a week later as a reminder of my efforts but for some reason I just couldn’t pull the mess together into a card.

At the eleventh hour I had a light bulb moment and although not crazy about the result I don’t think what I came up with was half bad but I will let you all be the judge of that , think I’m most probably a little delusional due to lack of sleep/mojo etc.Also due to lack of light the true depth of this magical ( insert laugh here ) card is not apparent but after seeing the reaction of one of my true followers ( Ziggy the cat ) I realise that this is indeed a masterpiece.  (Dont worry I have booked an appointment with a ” specialist “)

So here it is ………

I used my Cameo to create this holey card and was quite pleased that by chance some of the holes were in fact the correct fit for my eyelets, so out came the crop-o-dile , bit of a bugger but I got there in the end.. The larger of the buttons fit snuggly into the holes although it was touch and go for a while trying to find the matching buttons for the holes. The sentiment is SU stamped with Archival red brillance ink.

So there you have it , we would love to see you over at Get Creative so why not pop over and see what the rest of my teamies have come up with and why not join in   the winner will be invited back as guest designer for March.

Right time for bed, I have a tough day of lazing around tommorrow and need to keep my strength up
