Eeeek!

Morning Fluffers :)

When I was trying to take photo's of this project, I remembered why, although I love easel cards, I don't make them so often. They are a nightmare to get a good photo of! As I type this, I'm a bit grumpy, having just spent the morning colouring images (six) with not very good (in my eyes) results. This just about sums up my past few crafting sessions, because this card was a struggle too. Why? Anything But Square...


It's the new Challenge over at Little Miss Muffet, and this theme always has me running for the hills. Especially if Mojo is not in the right place! And Mojo is most definitely, not, in the right place. And. I've run out of jellybeans. Pah!

So, ignore me and go take a look at the much better Anything But Square creations from the rest of the girls. I'm off to sulk! Laters... ;)

Stuff Wot I Used...

Papers: Bazzill Basics Licorice; My Mum's Craft Shop

I tell you what - come sulk at mine and make some cards while you're here - then I can watch how you always make such gorgeous cards!!!

I can provide chocklit, but not jellybeans - you'd have to put up with Parma Violets (oh and kittens, but not to eat!!).
