Paper Cupcakes Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone. I've been noticeably absent this last week, and so has my mojo!! Every time I've gone to craft, I've either started something and not finished or just sat shuffling papers, I hate going through periods like this! Although last night, I made this card and another one and I'm feeling like it might be returning, so fingers crossed that with this new week, my mojo will return!!!!!
Today, there's a new challenge over at Paper Cupcakes and Lucy has worked up a sketch for us to work with. Here's my version of it:
I've used the 'Teacup with Daisies' image from Paper Cupcakes, which I've coloured with promarkers and shaded the background with chalks. All of the papers/borders/embellies are Echo Park 'For the Record' and that's it. Simples.
I do hope you like it. Also, if I usually pay your blog a visit and I've missed any of your cards, I'm sorry - I've had problems with blogger all weekend - it's been trying to tell me that I don't follow any blogs (hmmmm, yeah, right!). This does happen every now and again but usually when I refresh the screen, they reappear but this went on for a couple of days. In the end, I reported it to blogger via a forum I found on the internet - turns out lots of other people were having the same problem too! And then last night, my list reappeared for a bit, only to disappear again. It's back this morning, so even more fingers crossed that it's here to stay this time!! Right, I'm off to craft the day away in front of the QVC craft day - anyone else watching it? TTFN...............x


  1. That is a gorgeous card Marie! Looks so sweet and I love the yellow tones!

  2. Hey honey, this is a lovely card and I can't believe your mojo has disappeared, I will out it down to recent events! :O) I'm watching QVC too and trying very hard not to purchase anything! LOL. Hugs, Claire x

  3. I love the yellow checks and the ribbon. The teacup with the daisies looks so very, very sweet.

  4. Sometimes we just need a day or two to chill - it's not easy coming up with a new idea every day. :)
    You've managed it here though Marie - love the way you have popped on the sentiment.

  7. Sweet card Marie! I've had lots of spells like you've just experienced but they go away usually within a few days, sometimes not..LOL You came back with a goodie. Can't wait to see what's next now that your MoJO is back. "Hugs" Carol

  8. Hey there, sorry to be so late in the week visiting. Love your ribbon with the script...I had some that I thought about using but couldn't get the rest of it to work out, hate when that happens. Love the bright yellow gingham with your daises, too. I can't believe that I missed craft day on QVC....I love watching even if I don't buy anything.
    Speaking of blogger, won't let me sign in under my account today, so posting as my URL.
