Where did you go to my lovely

My mojo that is - where did you go? My inspiration, my muse whatever you call it has gone. I think it has secretly gone into hiding and will not come out until I get some new goodies from the upcoming release of Stampin' Up!s 2009/2010 Idea book & catalogue. The cards for today were really hard work and I am not 100% happy with them - but I think they may have helped me to figure a couple of new projects.

I think I need to have a major blog hop and check out all of your great work and hopefully it will spark the little grey cells into action :D

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: A bit of birthday cheer, fresh cuts and polka dots & paisley.
Ink: Chocolate chip and versamark.

Card stock: Kraft, very vanilla, chocolate chip, ruby red, cameo coral and thick window sheets.
Misc: Linen thread, chocolate chip narrow grosgrain ribbon, chocolate chip double stitched grosgrain ribbon, on board batch of blooms chipboard circle and dots & designs rub-ons.

Oh Peter Sarstedt that was one of my fav songs as a young teenager!

Hey Emma, I love these cards. I think your mojo has not left the building. It is still there as these fab cards prove. Oh meant to say I posted your flowers on MOnday so you shoudl get them soon. Lesleyx

What do you mean mojo missing?!! You always have fabulous ideas!
I love both of these especially the second one, with some of my fave colours! I love how you've stamped the ruby red panel with the polka dots and paisley looks great.

They're lovely cards Emma. If you can make those without a Mojo - wow! I promise I haven't taken it though - someone ran off with mine two days ago! x

What on earth are you talking about woman!!! These cards are fantastic - if this is you without mojo, then their is no hope for the rest of us mere mortals!!

Love 'em both, but especially love the cut away circle on the first! Fabby, as always.

Loved that song as a kid too - ah such memories.

p.s. how do you know half these songs, you're nowhere near old enough?????

I think you're being to hard on yourself Emma, these are fab and very inspiring!

Well if this was the result of my Mojo going M.I.A then I'd be pretty chuffed with myself! If you think it's gone though, I do always recommend a blog hop to kick it into gear and some new stamping goodies are a proven cure too y'know - tee hee!
Loving the acetate card and those peek-a-boo scallops add the classy,quirky Emma-esque touch!

Hey... This Mojo guy is puny and over-rated... plenty more fish in the sea. You haven't met my mate, Maja, have you? Pronounced major, he's no minor muse, y'know.. and his brother, Miji.. particularly popular with Scottish crafters.. Anyway, you manifestly don't need any of 'em. I've been off the blog-hopping map for a few days or so, and I come back to some wonderful creations here. You've certainly inspired me.
