Mr Mojo came home WooHoo!!!!!

After what in reality was a few days but actually felt like weeks, Mr Mojo eventually came home with his tail firmly between his legs. I have been off work since Thursday of last week and have really struggled to get any kind of inspiration to make a card for my Aunties new home. I eventually stopped trying to force it and hey presto!!!! last night I finally became inspired. I think what actually got me going was I decided to organise my Digi papers. I get sick of trawling through each folder to see what I have so I have started to print off swatches of each paper and put them on a book ring. It's quite time consuming but perfect for those moments when you just don't know what to do with yourself. These are the first swatches I have made, the Pink Petticoat one is available here and the other one is my gingham paper from Funky Fairys. I think I am going to try to do one per week and see where I go from there.

So the card I was finally inspired to make was this one.....

I paper pieced and coloured a Pink Petticoat image (from the New Home collection) with Promarkers and the gingham papers from Funky Fairys. The letters are a bit difficult to see on the picture but they are also from Pink Petticoat and the buttons are from a local craft shop.

I hope you like it, I'm really pleased with it and am now reluctant to give it away lol.

Thanks for looking and don't be shy leave me a comment to say you've been.

Hi Wendy,
Love your card, the paper piecing looks fab!
What a great idea to do colour swatches, I always forget what I have on my PC too - I must get more organised!!
