January blues

Good morning blogworld,

This is my card:

I used:

Digi Stamp:
Just some lines - Emo Snowflake
coloured with Copics and ProMarkers
chalk for the background

Nesties - image
Memory Box - snowflakes
My Favourite Things - border


Anything Else?
Prima - flowers
Wild Orchid Crafts - blue/white flowers
Stickles Glitter Glue
Martha Stewart glitters

So far January has been OK for me.  Exercise routine started and some weight lost but, oh dear!, I also appear to have lost me Mojo.  Again!  I'm beginning to wonder if it's being cramped in a corner of the dining room / office that's doing it to me - or whether I'm just having a bad few months or so!  So very few cards made.

Hi ho - cheerful thoughts!

See you again soon,

How cute is this indeed. Loving that sparkly snowflake effect. Lost a few pounds too of the monetary sort though. In a worth while cause you understand. Sales are not sales unless someone spends!! Hugs Mrs A.

Totally cute! Gorgeous card, Sarah. Hope you find your mojo soon, altho' if you can make a card like this without it....!
Well done on the weight loss too, it's not easy to motivate yourself after Christmas when the days are dark!
