WOYWW, 17th November 2010

Good morning all my fellow WOYWW- ers!

I must tell you this very unfortunate story that went on last night! Mr. Mojo was nagging me to make a card for the Daring Cardmakers challenge that is about remembrance and poppies. So I gave into his persuading and stamped a poppy image that wasn't very successful - I stamped it again and then seeing that there wasn't much difference started to do something with it - colored, sprayed with mica did some cutting and 3D sticking - nothing worked but Mr. Mojo was at me all evening "go on, go on do it!" so I gave up on that idea and started on a poppy paper flower - huh that took me ages fafing around with paper and clear embossing powder and well this was just to make this one little flower - no sign of a card yet so I said to Mr. Mojo - I am tired I have a headache and I am off to bed...that really made him angry so he stormed out of the room, slammed the door and off he went - probably spending the night with one of you girls - leaving me with a broken crafty heart! (sniff, sniff..) Ah men! 
I know he will be back as we do have this passionate relationship that has problems as all relationships do .....but to get to the point ( huh took me a while didn't it???) I have nothing to show you....
Here is a general view....


Here is the stamped image that didn't work....


and the sad poppy flower ......

If you look at the photo on the top you might spot a few new things - I now have 4 alcoholic inks! I have some new Martha Stewart glitter and a few other bits and bobs you should find yourself ha, ha....
Have to go now - will be back with you this evening....
Have a lovely day, enjoy your snooping!
Hugs to all of you...

  18. Perhaps there's a mojo convention somewhere. Mine upped and offed too when I was trying to do a poppy piece.

  20. Ah yes, the Mojo men are fickle indeed! Strange though Cardarioan - that he didn't tell you that both the card and the poppy flower are gorgeous before he flounced out in a huff! Love em.
