Allsorts of Mojo

WOW! Where have I been all week? Last week I couldn't escape my craft desk (I love those weeks, shame about the housework though) and this week I've had trouble getting a moment to get in here and finish anything - this card in particular I started Monday, can you believe it?! So frustrating! But anyway, I've finished it and I am fairly happy. Part of my problem is lack of mojo for the Monday Mojo sketch #117 this week. It looks simple enough but do you think I could find anything that looked any good? Nup. I bet in a week or so I will go back and look at the sketch and BANG, ha ha ha. Maybe I am all Christmassed out? I certainly hope not because I STILL have a few cards to make... and then there is a gift or two in progress that needs finishing and then the gift tags and wrapping..... oh boy.

Despite all that, I've discovered a challenge blog called Allsorts Challenges. Its really cute, go over and have a look. Their current challege (#31) is Pearls and Swirls, so I stamped this gorgeous swirl all over my patterned paper and embossed it with gold powder. It has been a while since I did any embossing and it was nice to get the blingy stuff out. I added a few red pearls on the lacey bits and a few pearl (?) coloured pearls on the top right. There we go - pearls and swirls "all sorted", yep, pun intended, (chuckles to self). Sorry, I've been spending too much time with my babies and not enough with adults.....
