Where has all the mojo gone ........

This card is for this weeks Less Is More challenge which is a sketch challenge. The Divas placed rules which were: must be rectangle, band must stay in position and it had to be landscape. I managed to get those correct, however I didn't place the sentiment in the same spot as the sketch indicated. It's automatic for me; I hate seeing a sentiment dumped into a large open white space. I have to admit, if I'm going to mess up a sketch, it's always the sentiment placement. :( I also messed this up by trying to add shading to the trees with an old olive marker. I should have used chalk, it would have been more subtle.

That said, I'm just pleased to be back in my craft room. I'm struggling like crazy to create things and since last Friday only two projects have survived the trash bin (this being the second one). It's like my mojo decided it was taking a hike since I wasn't using it. Now I need it back and it's no where to be found. LOL I've missed 7 weeks of crafting and challenges (here and at SCS) so if my limited missing mojo ever returns, I might back track and give some of the missed challenges a go.

Thanks for stopping in.

  1. doesn't look like your mojo is missing to me, carole!! fantastic card for the LIM challenge! (i just made a card for the SCS CAS challenge and used the same MB die!)

  2. me, again... the die isn't the same, but similar! :)

  3. Hi Carole,
    This is a fab card... nothing was mentioned about the sentiment having to be exactly where it was indicated on the sketch... and with the shape of sentiment you used here, I agree that it's in the perfect place. So NO naughty step for you today!
    It's a great card and it's great to see you back at LIM.
    Thanks so much

  4. I'd say your mojo is alive and kicking, Carole...this is an absolutely adorable card!!!! I just love the Memory Box die and how cute are those clouds!!!!!

  5. What a fun and creative use of that die!! The sentiment is perfect for that beautiful scene.

  6. Hi Carole, love the way you have used that die - very good layout with it. Your mo jo hasn't gone it's just snoozing a little due to over work. Just take it easy and it will return in full. Love that box you and your friend made - stunning hugs Karen x
