Has anyone seen my mojo??

No card tonight, sorry! I appear to have lost my mojo, has anyone seen it on their travels? Have spent the day sneezing and coughing with hayfever or a mild cold, whatever it is, it has chased away my inspiration. I have made two cards both for a challenge and they have ended up in the bin. Not a normal thing for me, I haven't had it this bad before. Am off to blogland to look for it, should it turn up I will post something over the weekend. Hope your's is in tact and is happily thriving.

Does anyone have a good remedy for hayfever other than 'Piraton', it sends me to sleep, and as I am working all weekend, that may not be a good thing, as I am dozy enough without it, lol! Any ideas would be gratfully received. Have a lovely weekend peeps, hugs Heidi (sneeze, cough, sneeze)!! xxx

Hello peeps, hope you have had lovely weekends? Are you sick of chocolate like me? Well, the sun has been shining here today, so David and I have got on with some gardening, such a change for a Bank Holiday, when all we seem to get is rain!

I love doing the Pollycraft Monday Challenge , it has to be one of my favs. Their little stamps have such cheerful images and are always a pleasure to stamp out. This week's theme is 'Orange'. It just happen's to be my fav crafting colour at the moment as I have just brought some new 'My Mind's Eye' papers which are lovely tones of greens and orange. I have used 'Daydream', stamp, which is one of the Sherbert range. Great little image, which i have coloured in using 'Copic Ciao's'. It is surrounded by Orange 'Bazzill Bling' and sits on 'Bloom & Grow - Little Blossom' paper. Have added a QK Revolution flower and flourish. Orange 'Bazzill' Tulle and a sun charm from stash. The sentiment is again Pollycraft and to finish off, some orange 'Doodlebug' jewels.

It is my dear hubbie's birthday tommorrow, so had better go and make him a card. Have a great week, thanks for stopping by. Hugs Heidi xxx
