Finally, I'm back

It has been so long since my last post, but I kind of lost my mojo for a while - still having difficulty, I sit down and the ideas just don't seem to come, I blame the fact that the new series that have started on Watch are just sooo good - have you seen Grimm and Alcatraz?!

Anyway, whilst sitting watching telly the other day, I had the idea for this card, the layout is sort of the Sketch Saturday layout from this week, and I'm really proud of this card as it is one for the boys, which are always more difficult, the image is a Mo Manning digi (so lovely!) and I've used my speccies to colour it in, the papers I've had forever and the alphabet stamps are from a set I unburied and I've had but not used for at least 6 years! (bad isn't it?).

Speaking of finding stuff, as I was digging through stuff, I found a whole load of images that I've already got stamped, some are my own and others were given to me in swaps, however I cannot believe they are just sat there, I even found a whole load of images that are not only stamped, but are even ready coloured!!!  Okay so quite a lot of them are Christmas images, but even so I really need to just sit down and use these images.  It's also given me the idea that I could just stamp out a whole load of images and when my mojo is lacking I could sit and colour so that when the mojo returns I can get on with cards a lot quicker.  The Boys Toys card took about an hour and a half to make, but most of that time was spent colouring the image.

Anyway, hope you like, and hopefully I will be back slightly sooner with some more cards - need to, I've agreed to do a craft fair with my buddy Alison.
