WOYWW , Just a card!

Hello my dear friends!

I keep on apologizing for not blogging but I will be honest with you - there is nothing to blog about - it was very hot - we broke the record last week - the temperature went over 40 deg C !!! It has eased off since but my mojo has gone on holiday (obviosly likes it a bit cooler) and I am stuck with lots of lovely stamps, new dies, paints and sprays but absolutly no idea what to do with them! I can't remember when I have been sooo completly out of  ideas - it is like my brain has been washed and there is nothing creative left there! 
I am off on a 4 day holiday from tomorrow at the seaside with my DBF who came back to Slovenia yesterday  so I hope that I will get some ideas there and start creating again!  Huh! 
I have made ONE card - I think it must have reached its destination so I am safe to show it! It is a bit of a mixture of techniques - I made the background with Fresco acrylic paints, bits of pages from an old dictionary and I went as far as using light molding paste on a stencil! I used some of my new dies from Sizzix (frame), Memory box (leaves) and Marianne( flowers)!  I also used some glass little flowers and a few blue pearls! The leaves were shaded with distress ink - as they are so small I dabbed them with a cotton bud!
It isn't much but it was all I was able to put together! 
Here is my card....

and some close ups....

So that is my bit for this week! Not much but at least I made an effort! 
I am not sure how many of you I will be able to visit but I will try my best! I hope you have a lovely rest of the week and hopefully my mojo will be back soon and I will be able to show you a more creative post - there will be a photo report from my holidays!
Lots of hugs to all of you,


  1. Čudovita je,
    poletje je pa poletje-enkrat imamo navdih, čas, drugič spet ne-a lepo je zopet prebrati in pogledati v tvojo ustvarjalnico.
    Lp Tamara

  2. That card is GORGEOUS. So well done. You may think your mojo is gone, but that card doesn't show it.

    Have a good holiday with your friend, and find a place that's cool. You are having the summer we in the states had last year. Happy WOYWW from #1.

  3. Ok if your mojo has gone AWOL then that card you made must of been created by the pixies because it really is stunning and gorgeous. So dont give up on yourself ok, the mojo is there. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely week.

    Happy WOYWW

  4. Have fun at the seaside, relax, read books, don't even think about crafting....and you may be surprised when you get back home! And that gorgeous card is just beautiful, so your mojo is lurking not too far away.
    40 degrees? I couldn't cope with that....I've got cold Northern blood!

  9. I'm not a bit surprised you're mojo has gone. When we had our recent heatwave here in Scotland, it was just too hot to craft. Have a lovely holiday by the sea and come back refreshed ... you will probably find you can't wait to craft again :) Elizabeth x #61

  10. You poor thing, hope it cools down soon for you - I hate the heat, so feel for anyone suffering. Enjoy your break and dont force the mojo back, maybe you just need a break - dont stress it, just enjoy it.

  11. Gorgeous card, Dolores. Must remember this, the flowers remind me of forget me nots, which are my DIL's favourite.I shall use it for her card. Irritating when Mr Mojo goes on his holidays without warning, I agree. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #45 xx

  12. sweet card - love the details! im sure after you trip to the seaside youll be ready to craft again :)


  13. Čudovita voščilnica.
    Uživaj na dopustu. Lp

  14. I couldn't do anything when we had it at 30 here a couple of weeks go, never mind 40... so I don't blame you. Enjoy the seaside. Helen 21 - oh and that card is just gorgeous!

  15. {snort} Just a card, she says....

    Don't worry - Mojo never goes far, or goes for long. And if anything will get it working WOYWW will :)

    Happy (so late) WOYWW!

  16. Wow its looks so dainty and time consuming. I have to say I love it thought. I want to peek around in yur site. I'll be back :-)
    Thanks for sharing and Bright blessings to you and yours. Roberta #55

  17. that is one very pretty card and I love the frame and the flowers you have used. If you are struggling for ideas try just doing a few small tags as they take less thinking about
    Enjoy WOYWW and have a great week

  18. Hi Dolores
    well for someone who doesn't know what to make , you made a beautiful card.
    when Mr Mojo disappears I find it is best to go back to basics and be minimal, too much choice stops your creativity this includes colours too.
    40 degrees Mmm that is hot so its not surprising really. enjoy your holiday

  19. ooo kako lepo voščilnico si naredila! Zelo mi je všeč ta ovalni izrezek :-))

  20. oh the card is Beautiful, yes you are definitely the Flower Queen,


  21. I understand what it feels like to lose your creativity. It happens to me all the time. You have made a lovely card.
    I would say, just get all your supplies together and just delve in:)
