Deep Fried Mojo

Morning Peeps.

It's been a long couple of weeks in Cassa Fluffie. I'm happy to report that as the week has progressed, Sweet Cheeks has become less uncomfortable and miserable and more mobile. He's even been happy to play by himself a few times. Night times are still a little broken, but I'm sure they will improve as he does.

However, there has been a casualty. Mojo is completely fried. Normally she is happy to dance around with ideas in my Fluffie little brain, but at the moment, the only things twisting and shouting are the dust and tumbleweed.

Luckily, I made my Sketch Saturday card a couple of weeks ago. My Lovely (Fairy) Godmother (Hiya! I know she peeps in from time to time!) asked me to make her a Ruby Wedding Anniversary card for Mrs A and The Doc. Happily, they received the card from The (Fairy) Godparents. Royal Mail are not on my Christmas card list, but I'll save that rant for another day.

So there's the Sketch you'll need to play with for a chance to get your mitts on stash from Simon Says Stamp. Pop over to Sketch Saturday for all the details and to see the cracking creations from The Saturdays.

I'm hopeful that the completely illegal package that cleared Baggage Control the other day is going to tickle Mojo's fancy. She did flutter her eyelashes when she saw the Penguins. (Wild Rose Studio, not choklit, but that may be worth a try.) Otherwise I'm going to have to resort to a more radical solution. Does anyone know if it hurts to connect yourself to a car battery with jump leads...?! ;)

Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: All Loved Up; Forever Friends and Pink Petticoat
Image and Sentiment: LOTV
Colouring: Polychromos
Other:Foam Thickers; American Crafts, Velvet Ric Rac; Sew Sweet

So glad to hear Sweet Cheeks is doing better and if you use the battery cables make sure you aren't standing in water, I think that could be bad! Your card is great Faye and if mojo is lacking it isn't showing on your cards! Crossing my fingers mojo is just taking a looong nap and comes back soon!

This is such a lovely, sweet card Faye :)

Love the heart papers and all the glossy highlights.

Your mojo hasnt gone, you have just had other priorities. I find what helps is to look back at some of my older projects that I have been quite chuffed with, and have another go at them :)

Hiya Fluffster! Oh you are a funny bit of fluff!!! Glad to hear SC is feeling a bit better... sorry to hear Mojo is fried though! Great card mind you... love the papers! Car battery defo hurts... I've been zapped by an elec fence powered by car battery and it's not funny! Good to be back with you all at Cupcake (was starting to feel a bit out of it all being away so long)! Enjoy totally illegal package! Shelly ;)

Grenouille Greetings said...

Well your mojo may have gone walkabout but that is not evident in your card. Love the papers. Love the image and your perfect colour work! So pleased that your little man is doing better and hopefully in a few days you will be feeling less frazzled too. It's hardly surprising that you feel a loss of inspiration with the worry you must have been going through! Hope the situation improves very quickly for you all. Love Lesley

having a {me} day said...

Hi Faye, so sorry to hear that your little boy has been so poorly. I hope he gets better real soon! As for losing your mojo ... well per-lease! I can't do that shady thing around the outside of the images and am too scared to try :( Your colouring is fabulous and I love this beautiful card. Enjoy the week ahead. keeleyxxx
