Mojo M.I.A reward for anyone who finds it!

I came home from holiday without my mojo and it still hasn't came back :(
I finally made a card tonight for a few challenges but it was a disaster from start to finish.
All my copics are running out and I didn't have any of the colours I needed so I had to use copics and distress inks which I am rubbish at using, and when I finally got the card finished it was dark and I couldn't get a photo of it no matter how hard I tried so I ended up scanning it, and the scan was just as bad as all the photos I took!
Anyway here is is
I followed the sketch by Jacqui over at the Whiff Of Joy challenge and used a WOJ image I got in a rak a while back. As I said, she is coloured with copics and distress inks andI also used some stickles on her trousers and on her bracelet which you can't really see here.
The challenge at Daring Cardmakers is to add bling and sparkle so I think I have that covered with the glitter on my image, my spacers and I also glittered all the brads I used on the flowers and around the sentiment too.
Cute Card Thursdays challenge this week is Let's get fruity, hence the strawberry paper and there is also fruit on my girls clothes.
Papertake Weekly's theme this week is 4 Seasons. use colours or things that remind you of 1 of the seasons. Strawberries remind me of summer and so does the image.
And finally for Pile It on you have to do at least one other challenge and use at least 3 flowers which I have also done.
So that's 5 challenges covered I think :) I don't normally combin lots of challenges but I have missed so much challenges lately that I had to combine some to catch up a bit.
Incase anyone is interested, the papers are Cosmo Cricket and DCWV and the sentiment is from Stampin Up!
Right I'm off to link to all these challenges then off to bed.
Hopefully my mojo will be homesick and come back to me tomorrow.

Hugs Lora x

Dark or not that is a very sweet card. I like the distress look of it.

Here Mojo, here Mojo, I can't find it. Maybe it's on Denise's blog Stamping Vacation.


Denise Clark said...

Hi Lora! Looks to me like you must have found your mojo over at my blog, because this card definitely says "HERE'S MY MOJO!" I think it's adorable!

Hang on tight to that MOJO! Don't let it escape again!

I think your mojo is hiding out with my mojo! I need to make birthday cards for one of my brothers-in-law; my daughter; my sister and 2 sister-in-laws and I also need to make a baby card for a baby shower! AARRGGHH!! Some of the above mentioned people (daughter included) have already had their birthdays. I started a card for my daughter - just need to finish it.

That's such a nice card!!!

TeresaW said...

Mojo alert, incoming fast a furious, I have it on good authority that you will find your mojo by the end of the week-end, because I have finally found my mojo again and they are cousins.

I hope you are well, I finally found out how much I missed blogging and started bragging about all the lovely things you gave me in my candy win. We miss you girlie, so make sure you have your mojo catching gloves on, as when it comes back it comes back with a vengeance!
