Something Different…..

So having been in a bit of a Mojo drain I chatted with my pal Susan Moffatt who suggested I take part in a challenge. She sent me to her blog to check out her blog challenge links…..My goodness what an amazing array of potential  challenges…..and it is only Tuesday!

Here goes….My first card is for the Simply Stamping challenge – So here there this a challenge which asks you to follow a sketch. Just what I needed to kick start my Mojo!

 

I really wanted to see what Pool Party and So Saffron was going to look like together an to be honest I think this looked better in my head than it does IRL. But that’s what it is like when your Mojo not working…..

This second one features some not quite yet available products from the new Annual Catalogue from Stampin Up.  I am fortunate to have these products and I love them totally! So two pics here and this one is to be entered on the Sweet Stampin Challenge where we have to do some thing Christmassy in July (only just made it!). 

 

 

And finally – my Mojo beginning to make an appearance now – is my favourite of the session. This one is for submitting to the Craft your Passion challenge and is another sketch challenge. I confess to using very little Stampin Up. But sometimes that is the way things roll isn’t it?

 

In this one I used my marker pens, daubing and some rather funky felt flowers! I am rather pleased with this card as it took  me outside what has been my comfort zone for a while. I also like the bright colours – very HOT AUGUST!

Okay – hope you like these as I actually enjoyed doing them. So that is me sorted for today – heading over to Susan’s again to see what challenges are listed for the rest of the week….You can see what she has by clicking here.

Until next time remember to stamp your place int he world! xxxx

    Hi Lorraine, definately love your Christmas card. Different from the usual snow, bears,trees etc. not that I don’t these items but always on the look out for a change,
    Your other cards are also very nice, I’m not brave enough to use strong colours or felt
    well done, hope I find my mojo soon too.
