Less is More - One Layer - Doodling

Hi everyone

Hope you are all having a good week.

Now I like a challenge, like most people, but for me Mandi and Chrissie at Less is More this week really gave me a challenge.  They want us to do some Doodling.  This can be in any form you wish, faux stitching, hand written or drawn elements on your card, zentangle. As long as you create something with 'ink' by hand.  Oh dear me, I thought!

I am NOT a doodler, I don't doodle when I'm on the phone or in meetings because I would stop listening. I just can't seem to do it, so I nearly didn't do this weeks challenge, but it was on my mind and I really wanted to do something, anything.  So I sat and doodled and five pieces of scrap paper later nothing really much had been achieved, but I persevered and finally came up with this...

Not at all technical, I know, and they look a bit like fireworks

Added some glitter and a little gem

Can you tell I'm really trying to 'sell' this card, but I'm still not really feeling the love.  Think I will end there and decide to leave doodling to the experts.

Hope you like it.

I think I know where my MOJO is hiding!!!

Hi everyone hope you are all having a good week.  It's been a really lovely Easter holiday.  For those of you who are not aware I am a teaching assistant in a special school and with that comes the luxury of school holidays yeahh!!

The first week was spent in Lanzerote with the family, here are a couple of little holiday snaps...

A panoramic view of Playa Blanca from our villa...

Me and the kids on the sea front.  Anyway enough of those, as I was saying I think I know where my Mojo is hidden...

Somewhere under here, it's a bit of a disgrace isn't it.  I am hoping for a major clear up this weekend, but I have actually managed to make a card (I just moved things onto the floor!!)...

On Sunday I am going to be the proud Godmother to my friends little girl Stephanie.  I'm very excited and so this afternoon I've managed to make her card.  Hopefully I may have some Christening photos to show you early next week (and some more cards!!)

Bye for now.

Jo xx
