Has my Mojo returned?

It seems such a long time since my last post but its only been a couple of days. My one and only post this year what a disgrace. I have tried and tried to produce a decent card but all my attempts have gone in the recycle bin. But today I finally got down and dirty, well produced a card. I just adore the teal card from Creative Expressions that this card is again using teal and milk card stock.   I did not think I had a good enough photo of my card but this one is just about right, sorry about the background shows my craft desk, untidy as usual.  Sue Wilson's  influence once more with this card, thanks Sue.  Michelle will be the first to point this out as she is a fan too.

I think Patricia will be proud of my roses as I followed her tutorial and just love how they have turned out.  Another project I have been trying is making flowers from Tonic Floral Delights Die Set.  I have only make the cornflowers and lilies so far but have been using other Spellbinder dies as well.  Here is a wee selection.  I used the cornflowers on my last post.
Another project I have been trying, thanks to Patricia's influence again, is the Origami Boxes which can be found at Card-Making-Magic but I could not get a decent photograph to show them tonight, will show them at a later date.  I did not realise how easy they are to make, I imagined them to be difficult but not too many folds and there you have the boxes. Card-making-magic is a great site for ideas for a relative newby like me, I kept Oohing and Aaaaaahing at every click of the mouse.
I have been browsing through all your blogs recently and boy there are loads of beauties produced by you ladies, where oh where do you get our ideas. I tend to spend more time each day browsing as I cannot wait to see what is being posted.
I think after tonight I am back in the groove (a sixties expression) and feel ready to complete some more cards, can't wait till tomorrow to see if it lasts.
Well ladies looks like snow is forecast for the weekend so wrap up warm and take care out there and thank you all for the lovely comments and advice I receive from you, it is much appreciated.

  1. Hello Wilma, pleased your mojo has returned with such a gorgeous card. The colour is so rich , beaitiful and the die cuts are brillant. I love the flowers, Patricia will be impressed. I don't really have much by way of dies to do these kinds of cards, but I just love what you and Patricia do. I think I'm mor of a stamper and colourer inner, it's a throwback to child hood I think.
    looking forward to seeing your boxes, all the best kate x

  2. Gorgeous card Wilma, I love that teal colour. I have been playing with my d-lites dies today as I received my wax paper and I think I cracked them at last. I like the idea of spending a few days making embellishments, just what mojos need. xx Flora


  3. Wilma so nice to see your mojo is back , with this beautifull card I do like that teal colour. Patricia will be proud of you for making those roses and having a go at making the box, nothing ventured nothing gained as she would say. Did think it was going to snow yesterday but no it rained instead nothing different there then. Hazel

  4. Well HELLLOOO Wilma,
    Mojo back in full force, what a STUNNING card, love the teal and you should be proud of that embellishment, it is gorgeous. I love it, the whole card is a beauty. Love your flower selection too, they will really make a lovely card, keep playing.
    Hope you get chance to sort plans out and come to NEC in November!
    Take care and keep warm.
