Sorry I've been a stranger

Good Afternoon all. I'm really sorry that I haven't posted for ages but I am still stuggling to get my mojo back. I keep going into my craft (dining) room and looking around but nope, nothing jumps out at me. I am feeling a bit down in the dumps to be honest.

I have made a couple of cards but I must admit I only made them because I had to.  The first one is an almost copy of one I made last year.


and for the second one I wanted to try something different, so I took inspiration from Tara and made this Shabby Chic/Vintage card for a colleague at work who is turning 50 on Monday.



I've done a little bit more crocheting too.  Emily asked me to do this one.  The 11th Doctor

well, if you've not made a card for a wee while then I cant think of a better image to "get back in the saddle" with! both gorgeous cards Mrs!

Now onto the knitted Dr!!!! ooooh love it, I think I may have commented something similar on the post with the knitted Dalek, but I think these are wonderful....you've got to knit him a wee sonic screwdriver to help him defeat the daleks!!

Your first is delightful with all the neutral colours teamed with the white on white. The second looks great
too & I especially like the way your rolled roses echo the flowers in the image.
Maybe you just need a bit of a rest & work on your crocheting for the time being. That chap looks super.

Hi Debs, ooh I know just how you feel! I've been struggling with Mr Mojo all this year - and am still struggling now!

Have given myself a firm talking to (and kick up the backside) this week and have coloured in an image today - hopefully it should be a card by tomorrow, then I may even blog it. shock, horror!!

Your card is just soo pretty and one of my all time favourite stamps - she may even be one of the first I ever brought.

Loving the crochet as well - 'specially The Dr, love that programme. I'd love to see a sonic screwdriver as well!!!!

Your Emily's got good taste!!!
