Where do you think our 'mojo's' go to when they leave us?? Are they like the socks that go missing in the wash, suddenly to return under someone's bed?? I wish I knew where mine had gone too, so I could try to encourage it back!! I can just imagine a cafe filled with 'mojo's', drinking cups of coffee and complaining about how much they had been used of late and that they so needed a holiday.... If your reading this mojo, please come back soon, I have chocolate!!!
This card was taking so long to come together. Not because I didn't know what I would create, I was just so tired I was dragging the chain with putting it all together. However while gardening yesterday I suddenly remembered that the current Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge was called 'Animal Magic', so that put a spark under my backside to get it sorted:
Aren't these dog images so adorable??!!!! I've never coloured a St Bernard before so spent ages on Google looking at photos to get the colours in the right spots. I asked Phoebe if it looked like one from far away and she grabbed it off me and said it looked like one even close up, so that gave me a boost!!
I started off by stamping the two dogs (from Winnie and Walter 'Dog Gone Cute with Evelin T Designs') on some white CS and colouring them with my pencils. I then fussy cut them out and added foam tape to the back. To give them somewhere to sit I used a brown pencil to sketch a line on the card front and then did some softer lines underneath. I then sat the dogs on top.
For a pretty embellishment I stamped the butterflies (from the same stamp set) on the card front and coloured with pencils. I then added the sentiment and some co-ordinating sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I'm making Cannelloni for dinner tonight with cottage cheese/cream cheese and spinach filling for dinner. Its such as messy business getting the filling inside each tube but so worth it when your savouring each mouthful. Yum!!
