Come back Mrs Mojo....

Sob, sob... seriously rubbish creating day today, I should've just given up!

I've made one rubbish card for One-Layer Wednesday, where the challenge is 'quick layers of ink'...


I used a set of Pink Gem stamps for the flower and sentiment, and added some little stamped hearts in the centre of the flower.  White linen cardstock and Memento inks in 'tangelo', 'canteloupe' and 'rose bud'.


Then I made another rubbish card for CAS-ual Fridays, where the challenge is 'getting edgy'...


Used the Pink Gem flower stamp again, stamped in 'ladybug' Memento, with a button centre.  The papers are from my scraps, cut into borders using a Tim Holtz die.  Sentiment is Penny Black.  As I've used my scraps I'm also entering this one for Jules' Crafty Snippet Challenge but I'll try and come back later in the week with something better!

I'm also entering my cards for the 'clean & simple' challenge at Moving Along With The Times.

Oh blimey, I'm in such a grumpy mood!  It's the hayfever blocked head that's doing it I think.  Please can someone send Mrs Mojo home to cheer me up?!

Oh dear Lisa I know how you feel with the hayfever Amy has it really bad most of the year but you can imagine what it's like at times like this boil some hot water putit in a bowl then put your head over it with a towel over your head also if you have any put put something init eucylipus or something vicks will do to help unblock your sinuses as it's this what causes the head pain as for the cards there is nothing wrong with them they are both beautiful so stay positive and be strong

Your mojo seems to be in attendance as far as I can see - these are lovely :0) Sorry to hear you are suffering with the horrid hay fever. I don't get it (fortunately) but Louise really does suffer too.

Poor you Lisa with the hayfever. The Mojo will come back soon. Mines gone into overdrive at the mo, i don't know how long for though.I'm with you on the no new paper thingy. Jules snippets is a brilliant way of getting rid, plus it does bring the mojo in through the side door.
