Simon Says....All That Sparkles

What a great challenge this week over on Simon Says, I think we all love a bit of sparkle!!

Just a shame I can't get the sparkle to show in the picture.  You can clearly see the gems but also all the hand dotting around the image and papers were done using sakura stardust pens.


Digi-Image - Funky Fairys 'Chloe Collection 1'

Papers - Funky Fairys 'Lil Blue Christmas Cracker'

Sentiment - Funky Fairys 'Christmas Punchums'

Colouring Medium - Copics, Promarkers and Sakura Stardust

Embellishments - Gems form stash


Sorry things have been a bit hit and miss on my blog lately, my mojo really is struggling, just wish it would hurry up and sort itself out, I really want to craft but I sit at my desk and nothing seems to happen, a few cards have even been scrapped, normally I only do that once in a blue moon if I don't like something.  I think it has all stemmed from when we had the shed break in and every single item of our fishing gear was stolen a few weeks back.  Though it wasn't our home that was broken into, it may as well of been as I still felt so violated, and what with Steve now working away again most nights through the week it is taking some getting used too after he had been home for so long whilst he was waiting for a new contract.  I'm so security conscious now, not that I wasn't before but even more so now and more nervous, but I'm sure that will ease with time, it's silly really I should be thankful it wasn't our home.  Anyeway next week I'm going away for a few days to visit family down in Worthing, hopefully a few days away will be the boost my mojo needs.  I'm really excited too that my youngest brother is also coming to visit us this weekend with his girlfriend, not seen him since April so be lovely to see him again.  My other brother who I'll be seeing next week I haven't seen in nearly 18 months, can't believe it's been so long.  So I think catching up with my brothers will be a real boost.  And the icing on the cake will also be seeing A-ha in concert next week, really can't wait for that, oh and then there is the NEC Papercraft show a week on Sunday too, where Crafty Emma and myself will be meeting up with some other blogger crafters.  All things to look forward to!! 

Anyway I thought I'd fill you in on what I have or should that be haven't been up  Hopefully full blogging and crafting service will be resumed in the not too distant future. Thank you to everyone who visits and takes the time to comment, I know I have been an extremely bad blogger and not visited your blogs very often lately.  But your visits and comments are very much appreciated.

Enjoy your weekend everyone

Hi Joanne,
I´m sure you´ll your mojo will come back, a small break makes good for creativity. A break in always turn things upside down for a while, I´m sure it will do you good to meet family.

Take care hun,

big hugs

Ahhhh baby cakes....

Sorry buddy you feeling like this, it took me ages to to get over my break in, but it will get easier, with Steve working away now, it may take a little longer for you to build up your security issues, but you will get through it hun, Cheer up blossom, from the look of your card i would say your mojo is certainly still lurking some
You know where i am...
Hugs Angel
