Some Mojo


I'm not real sure what's going on with me.....I think I'm having a complete "let-down" from Christmas cards. My mojo is gone, history, lost, kaput! I finally MADE myself sit down today and make a non-Christmas type card. I may try to make a couple more Christmas cards in a few days just to have for next year.

I used some Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, and My Minds Eye DP on this. The image is from Penny Black and and the sentiment from SU. In case you can't tell, that IS a chocolate brown bow on the side. It looks black in the photo but it's brown....and I made it myself (in other words, no Bow Easy was used!) I also made that red bow on the previous post. Maybe I'm getting a little better at this bow making stuff.
This is for Mojo Monday - sketch

Thanks for stopping by.........

I hear ya. My mojo up and left me right before Halloween, and then, life interfered, and I FINALLY got it back in time to make Christmas cards. Sheesh. :oS

This card is wonderful! I like the way you used the pearls to balance the space and enhance the card. :o)

I don't think your mojo is gone, your card is beautiful.It is elegant and vintage all at the same time. Your bow is perfect and love the pearls on the side. How is Rambo doing? We keep dodging a bobcat on our walks, never knew my head could do a 360 :)

I love your card Lynn! I think you still have the mojo...maybe you are just a little burned out! I get that way every few months or so...

Happy Holidays

Lynn, this is so very pretty! Love the image and papers!

Great looking card, Lynn! I lose mojo too sometimes. Sometimes it helps me to find a challenge I really like and that gets me kick started again. Other times I just have to wait a few weeks and it eventually comes back. Have fun and have a great December!

OOOOOh I love the bow. You're a bow makin' queen! I think you've inspired me with my sketch for my Xmas cards. Um, nope, haven't started those. *sigh*

Tammy said...

Wonderful card Lynn, doesn't look like you lack any mojo, but I know exactly the feeling you are having and I haven't started making my Christmas cards.

Gina said...

No mojo missing for this card, it's beautiful! Love the colors! I was feeling the same way since I have been making so many Christmas cards so I pulled out baby blue and other pastels to make a baby boy card.

Mary said...

Sharon Keanly said...

Mighty nice for no mojo .. hang in there!

Anne Marie said...

Lynn, you have mojo...you just are fresh out of Christmas mojo! :) I am the exact same way. I have up, I had to move into something new...my fa-la-la-la-la ran fa-la-la-la-out! :) Love the soft colors on this one and that double-bow is fantastic. You are making these bows look too easy!

Anne Marie said...

Eeek, typo...I meant "I used it up..." Sorry!

Carrie said...

I think this turned out lovely. Great mix of colors and nice layout too :)

Monica said...
