Hello Everyone...

What a miserable mojo went AWOL..

Nothing would I packed everything away.. scrubbed my desk...sharpened pencils...dusted...and

Tomorrow is another day and I will see if anything pops up...isn't it awful when the urge just isn't there..

But for today I have a card to share that I made a few weeks ago..and sitting quietly waiting for her turn..

Lacy Sunshine has a new fortnightly challenge about to kick in and this time we are looking for SUMMER...

And red, white, and blue sprung to mind with this little cutie..Bubbles Sailing  from the Sticky Wings Collection..

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and a blue and red copic...

The fabulous papers are from Rosies Studio "Prim and Proper" and "Essentials basics"

Lovely thick cord down the side and buttons galore..all stacked on top of one another.. and the cute little barrel charm came off a wine bottle..

The large SUMMER chipboard stickers are from my stash...

So there we go..a SUMMER challenge at Lacy Sunshine 

Thanks so much for stopping by...send me some crafty vibes please...meanwhile I will go off and eat a pixie caramel...or two..

Know how you feel Chrissy, my mojo has recently been for a tramp in the woods and has only just returned!! It always happens when I have deadlines to meet as well. I must say that you make some gorgeous cards when your mojo is with you! This one is fantastic and I love the embellishments you have used, those buttons are glorious. Lurve a little bit of red, white and blue. Great card.

Thank you so much for entering the Crafty Calendar Challenge this month, lots of luck to you.

Red, white and blue is one of my favorite color combos. They're great for sea and nautical designs which I love. There are plenty of great details on this card. The buttons look decorative, love how you embellished her 'boat' with gems, and what a fab recycled metal wine barrel!
