Lost Mojo...Please Contact....

As you can see, I lost my Mojo...Or it wandered off due to neglect.
You see...I got very busy with work and grandkids...other gotta get dones...AKA "Life in General"...I was still stamping occasionally, but not posting...Then some really crappy crap happened...that I believe was the final straw for my Mojo...It just forwarding address...Recently though Mojo popped up in the form of organization...My Crap Room was overflowing with all of the CRAP that no one wanted to deal with or put in a proper place...It was time to get a I started to box up everything...go through it...and dang if I didn't find hints of Mojo in those boxes as I unpacked them...Long story short...Mojo is being coaxed back...If I can finish my organizing and make a nice pretty place..I believe Mojo will come home to stay...Wish us luck...

Music in the Forest Swap

Yep another Forest Swap...the subject was music...i am in no way musically inclined...other than i like to listen and i like to dance...but creating or singing...uh yeah make the angels weep...

there were a few categories to choose cards...card candy...and you know me...i went with a recipe card...the recipe i chose has nothing to do with music...other than these cookie bars make your tastebuds SING!!!

When i was a teenager one of the youth leaders in our church made these (i think she believed if our mouths were full she'd get a word in)...they disappeared fast!...hello?...sweets and teenage girls?...

and of course the cards are my usual plain jane style...but they turned out "sweet"

Oatmeal Carmelitas
Paper: textured taken with teal..naturals ivory..dp
Stamps: little pieces
Ink: pumpkin (chocolate chip)
Accessories: orange rick-rack
hope everyone is doing well...we have way too much snow safe/be well all...

CASES #6 Over The River..Gramma Stuffed The Turkey

yeah been a looong time for a CASES...and i did do the card yesterday (Saturday) but had no time to post...this one has a fall/thanksgiving theme...the lyrics i used are " over the river and through the wood" and "grandma stuffed the turkey"...rather than the hymns on the original can find the details for the original here on SCS

SU has so many lovely card stock colors...but an all time favorite of mine is really rust..and i love it paired with night of navy...since really rust has retired (i have a stash that i hoard) i use cajun craze a lot...for this card i paired it with another favorite...old olive...and let me tell you those leaves were buggers to cut out..

Stamps: country blessings
Accessories: gilttery leaf button

i hope to do another card next week...but you know how flakey i can be...if something else comes a gun show or cleaning a bathroom....til then be safe/be well all!
