Shock!!  Finally a post from me - it feels like ages (but thats because it is)!!  I'm afraid I'm still having problems with my mojo not wanting to come out to play.  We also had a holiday and I was concerned I'd lost my mojo completely when we came home as I didnt want to do any crafting I didnt even go near my crafty area!! 

Its my sons birthday tomorrow so I knew I needed to get myself out of my funk as he had asked for a homemade card, so that was the kick start I needed - slowly, I'm starting to feel like I want to do some colouring and making again - after a crafty visit to Janine I've come home and finished a card I started to colour there - she's always good at giving me a kick up the bum and telling me not to be so silly - lol. (Thanks hun x)

So here's my card:

The image is a Sugar Nellie coloured with promarkers and fine glitter added to her wings.  The papers are old freebies from a magazine matted onto cardstock from my stash.  I haved added some die cut flowers and leaves (totally taking me out of my comfort zone - I love seeing flowers on other cards but I cant seem to get away with them!).  Then added pearls and a little gem from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

The Sugar Bowl - anything goes.
Simon says stamp- use dies, (die cut circle, flowers and leaves)

Thanks for reading and I apologise for not commenting so much recently on blogs, hopefully I'll be back on track :-)
