All Flown Away

Not the butterflies my mojo. Actually I think I left it at the Vets as it's no where to be seen and I've definitely looked for it! As I have actually had time to do a spot of crafting this week (I did try but it has ended in the recycle) it is very annoying that it has gone AWOL, hope it returns soon!  In the meantime a couple of cards the butterfly one was made a couple of weeks ago and the 21st card was made when I made the purple tag I just forgot to blog it doh! Think my Mojo and my Memory have eloped together!

The stamp is one of my favourites, Magenta Papillon Post and is coloured with Inktense pencils and distress inks and then the butterflies were stamped again and coated in utee. The papers are Bo Bunny gabrielle.

I really wasn't sure about making a 21st card so I opted for the Serena Stampsmith image as she is rather classy. Stamped on glossy card with archival ink. Then I added some black accessories to vamp her up a bit.

Off to do a spot of blog surfing now for much needed inspiration. Happy Crafting XX

Hi Paula, I managed to miss the last post with your gorgeous purple tag and am hoping your poor hubby and also Dylan are now on the mend as 2 sick fellas at once is not nice.
Your creations here are just stunning as I adore butterflies and that beautiful Serena stamp.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Both are beautiful Paula but I specially love the butterflies.

Hope you Mojo comes back soon, - know the feeling and it's very annoying.

Have you ever though of joining Pinterest? I find when my mojo is having a break, looking around there often helps..

Hi Paula. I saw your mojo on the Costas. He was sunning himself and eating Paella. He said he would be back at the weekend! Personally I would give him the sack. You don't need him! These are stunning creations.

PS He is catching the Easy Jet flight into BI airport on Sunday evening... just in case you want to pick him up! LOL!

Both cards are beautiful but those butterflies look so gorgeous and ready to fly off the page - stunning and a great advert for Inktense.

Te he Florence, that's my Mojo alright he has a real penchant for paella, so I may have to take him to La Tascas if he returns on Sunday LOL!XX

Hi Paula, love the butterflies but the second card is fab-u-lous!!!! Funny thing about mojo's they always seem to disappear when we have time to do things and perhaps try too hard:)

I think we need to start a 'lost mojo' support club lol.
However having said that I am not sure you have lost it, these are gorgeous as always. Both beautiful Paula.

I love butterflys, both cards are beautiful combined.

Fliss said...

Hello again Paula, just to say I was leaving a comment on Lynne's blog about her news and saw your comment.
Thought you might like to know that The Craft barn is now stocking OI stamps at £19.99 a sheet and has free p&p at the moment. The price is the cheapest I've seen them too.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx

I think your Mojo was sipping a hot chocolate and musing on life and art along with my Ms Mojo. I can tell you that Ms Mojo decided to return to me and she did tell me that she last saw your Mojo running for the train down south!!!!
Both cards are gorgeous but you know I have a soft spot for Serena. Serena who is sizzling on this card!! Beautiful trims, this is very special indeed.

Two fab cards Paula, love them both.
