Missing Mojo!

Hi all, well I dont know whats been wrong with me, but felt like I haven't done anything for ages except read other peoples blogs and see all their lovely creations. So over the last couple of nights started to get back into it again and made a few cards. However, on the card I have made for a 21st I need to get some other bits and just can't find what I am looking for to completely finish the card off:

I have been looking for a ribbon to go along the top of the patterned paper to then wanting to thread a star (gold??) and to put 21 on. Luckily it's not needed until March so will keep my eyes open. Off for a bit of retail therapy at the Harrogate papercrafts show in March - hmm never know what I will come back with!! (a divorce if I spend too much - hee hee).

Whilst I was doing that decoupage card, I also made another Jolly Nation one this time this is for my mums birthday:

I think she will like this one.

Right, what else have I been up to well I went onto Simones blog - and browsing quite a way through - as there is some lovely things to see came across a card similar to this silhouette card:

and loved the simpleness of it. I cut the trunk out of Bazil card stock and punched the flowers out then just added one red flower. The Sentiment was from the new Pink Parfait collection.

Now valentines day is nearly over, oh my son did take one of the cards for a girl in his class!! (the one that was meant for his dad!) I didn't mind though - because I think I liked the other card better!! I have started to think of mothers day and made this:

Again stickers from Pink Parfait - think I need to buy a square punch as my cutting even with cutting machines never seems straight. Not sure of the paper and the pink pearls were from Hobbycraft. Will just need to crack on with another one for either my mum or mum in law not sure who this one is for yet.

Lastly I have made a card for one of my friends - I love these Lily of the Valley fairies:

The backing paper is from this months freebie with one of the card making magazines.

I must stop spending so much time reading other peoples blogs, but it is so addictive you just get led onto another and another... and so on! If I did I would be able to get better organised as I need a little boys card for next weekend and wanting to do some cross stitch bits and pieces for Easter, and considering I am still trying to finish one that was meant for christmas - I think I need to start now.
