A little monster...

In all senses...

Morning Fluffers :)


Mojo was playing me up something rotten last week. She was sooooooooooo not in the building, on top of a bit of a crisis of confidence. Oooh, not a good start to a crafting session. And because I found myself with a little free time, I was determined I should make something, anything, puuuuuuuuuurlease.

Mojo, had other plans. Mainly involving sticking two fingers up in the air at me as she cycled into the middle distance. She's such a teenager...


I coloured Summer Monkey up five times. Five. Ditching each one in disgust; shading wrong, shading wrong, fur ok... cake wrong, wrong colours, shading wrong, before giving up and trying Monster Nom-Nom, in a jellybean fuelled rage. (Did you know Summer Monkey and Monster Nom-Nom have both been released in rubber stamp fabulousness at Little Miss Muffet?)


After all that, Monster Nom-Nom could be better, much better, but by this point, I just wanted to finish what I'd started and beat Mojo into submission. Mojo is still sulking and it's a battle of wills at the moment. The scoreboard looks a little something like this:

Mojo and Colouring - 1
Fluffie and No Stamping Creations - 2
Pending Mojo and Colouring Projects - 0
Pending Fluffie and No Stamping Creations - 2
Outstanding DT Commitments requiring Mojo and Colouring Assistance - Not telling, Mojo might be reading and it'd be helpful if she was in the same county as me

...but it's super, Faye! If one is going to make a card using a heart eating monster on an embossed hearts background with several pretty frames and a pretty sheet of paper and some twine. This is just how it should look! Sometimes Mojo just doesn't get the appreciation she deserves! Hugs, Lesley

Shelby said...

Looks like your mojo came back in full force on this one. Love love the deep reds you've used on this heart. Great card.

Dear Fluff
It's quite clear you're not taking your medication. Don't just eat the blue jellybeans...BIG mistake!
Yours truly
Frau Mojo :-)

Aww poor Faye.

Looks like you don't need your Mojo to make fab cards.
So let it huff in a corner and ignore it. It'll come round eventualy

Hi Faye,
Think your Miss Mojo may have run off with my Miss Mojo!!! That having been said - this card is gorgeous and I'm sure your Miss Mojo is lurking around somewhere.

Awww, this looks cute Faye! :) Love the scallopey card too!

When my mojo runs off, I often just go back over some of my older cards on my blog, find something I enjoyed making a lot and just make another - it never ends up the same! :) lol.
