Yesterday I was working with so many different textures & materials for work related projects that by the time came last night to have a little play for myself, I just wanted something very plain & simple to do.... can you tell how my mojo had burned out slightly......
Think it was partly due to the fact that there was so much going on in other aspects of life too.. with mum being away I'm having to check in on her husband who doesn't keep in the best of health & he wasn't doing too good and then Rob had to make the decision to close the last shop that he has... very hard for him to do as this leaves only his head office now.
However, we have to work through this thing & get on as best we can.. thank goodness I have my crafting a it is such a great way to escape the everyday pressures of life.
This was made from my Craftwork Cards stash again..
Attached some ribbon across the card, then added a sentiment which I enclosed with one of their mini frames inked up. Took two flowers, inked the edges, and added some card candy... just as a finishing effect I used my pink Sakura Souffle Pen to added some dotty swirls.

Ribbon, sentiment, frame, flowers & card candy all from Craftwork Cards
Souffle pen from Sakura
Hopefully I will be able to clear the mind a bit better today & come up with something a little more creative to share with you all tonight.
Happy crafting
