It's distressing...

and this time not only that Mr Mojo has gone on on his jollies.

Morning Blogworld

Well here we are again, Monday morning - can you believe how quickly the year is going?  Only a couple more months of this year left, then we are looking down the nose of 2013!!!  I'm still wondering where my summer has gone, let alone thinking about digging out that winter clobber.

So, the reason for the post is not to moan (though you'd be hard pressed to believe that!) but to say - yay it's Monday and a new challenge at The Cutie Pies and I wonder if you guessed the theme? No, really?  Well it's 'Distressing' and that should really only apply to your cards not yourselves ;-)

Our sponsors this fortnight are:

and, with a prize of 4 digis:

So here is my distressed card:

Yay - I got away from those kittens and the arty farty is back!!!

I used:
Digi stamp:
MilkCoffee - Lisbeth and balloons
coloured with my Pro and Flexmarkers

Nestie ovals and scalloped ovals

Glitz Design - Pretty in Pink

Anything else?
Craftwork cards - greeting
Ribbon, buttons (which I'm not sure about now!) and the little gem in her hair - from my stuff

That's me done then - sorry I've not been around much the last few days.  It's the start of the half-term and we have had Grandad visiting so busy, busy, busy!!

Hopefully see you all again soon,

A challenge, or two:

In The Pink: Challenge #6 - Buttons and Bows

Sketch Saturday: Week #231 - I know I rotated the sketch but am hoping you can still see it OK?

The Squirrel and The Fox: Challenge #29 - use a ribbon

Morning Sarah, your posts do make me laugh! How many times do I have to tell you you're too hard on yourself! Your card is fab and no sign of a missing mojo at all! Really pretty and quite perfect!
Your post below cracked me up - I had a dining room table just like that until I moved into the box room, now I have a box room just like that lol lol
