Nurturing tag

I was having a bit of a loss of the precious mojo earlier in the week. It doesn't happen often but is so frustrating. I watched a video posted by Glenda Waterworth this morning and it inspired me to dig out my watercolouring pencils. A friend at work had a really difficult day at work yesterday. She is our secretary and is the front line. I really do feel for her, she hasn't an easy job. I have made her a few other tags for her so this one I'm sure will be added to her pin board behind her desk. She understands me so this is a small RAK I know she'll appreciate.
Pop over to Glendas blog and have a look at the video.
Take care all

Nothing goes in the right direction

Over the last few weeks my mojo has been fine and I've enjoyed every moment of the bits and bobs I've done. These quick cards were made from the Hearts and Flowers stamp plate from Chocolate Baroque. I try to make cards for my stash as I'm usually making cards for friends requests. I thoroughly enjoy the challenge. This week my mojo has flown away. I'm managing to make bits and bobs but nothing is going together.
I've got everything crossed that my mojo hasn't gone on holiday for to long.

Finishing off things

Last year when we went to Darlington for the Graphicus retreat, we started a canvas. I started mine and haven't finished it. Kay who I went with gave me hers and told me she wasn't happy with it so couldn't finish it. I was shopping on Saturday and saw a lovely wall hanging so this is my first attempt. I'm going to give it back and finish my own. I used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch and stamped one of the scripts from Chocolate Baroque Mini Scripts. Larger scripts were to big.The flowers around the edge are a freebie stencil I got with a magazine. I used Victorian Velvet to colour.

Last year I made my friends birthday card using the Macintosh style stitched card. Her fave colour is lilac and she loved it. I managed to get another three of the patterns so this year for her birthday I stitched four of them and put them into frames from Ikea. I painted them a mocha colour to match her decor. Fingers crossed she'll like them.

Hope it's been a good Bank holiday
