I'm still here :)

Helloooooooooooooo!  Anyone still there?!  Huge apologies for the lack of posts in the last month but Mr cardmaking mojo seems to have done a runner.  However, Miss colouring mojo stayed behind as I've built up a little pile of coloured images (with copics, what else?!), but just no cards. See for yourself . . . .

So with all these images I finally made myself try and get back into the swing of things and put this card together the other night although I'm still not that happy with it, it's a start.

It's cute Japenese Tilda which I had all coloured and decoupaged but just found it really hard to try and put a layout together for her.  I shouldn't have used my border punch around her but it was done, so then I had to just work around that.  I think it looks a little better in real life as you can't really see how raised she is in the photo maybe this next shot gives a better feel to the 'depth' of this card . .
Papers are a Dovecraft pack, and the rest are just the usual suspects; coloured cardstock, ribbon, flowers, Marienne D doily die, various MS border punches and the black pearls are made with a Viva Deco pen (love this stuff).  The chinese happy birthday sentiment is from a Woodware stamp set.

I've not done much else (besides buy more stash >.< Just too many gorgeous papers, punches and stamps that I *need*  ) and I really should get my skates on as christmas is only round the corner so best get cracking with the cards and there are a few gifty things I want to try and make.  Have managed to tidy/clear out my craft room a bit though still got a bit more to do.  Hopefully I might find Mojo buried amongst all my unused stash.

Until next time, which hopefully won't be another month!

It's a wonderful card. Mojos go on holiday on a regular basis for all of us I guess so no need to worry. Your colourings are gorgeous.

Hugs, Mette
