Mojo Time!

Evening everyone! Ooo I think I'll just about make the mojo monday deadline by the skin of my teeth! I hope anyways-am not much good at understanding all this time zone business with + this and - that! Tis contest time again...and I'm telling ya it is my mission to win once over there at some point...

Hope everyone's had a lovely weekend! In the end me and Ian went to Lincoln shopping on Saturday as our 'time away' and had a lovely time:) Had a leisurely lunch...had a wander then spent a good amount of time in the bookshop having a little read while drinking iced coffees, then back home in time to catch the X-Factor. Lovely! Both me and Ian love reading, I don't read now as much as I did before Leo, I often listen to audio books now, while I craft! But yesterday I decided to buy the Twilight series since well, it seems, everyone has read em and loves them. Have been resisting getting them as I didn't think it would be my thing, am not much into vampires but so far so good:) Am really enjoying em!

Anyways....I came on to show you my card! I got this super cute girly by The Greeting Farm as soon as Elaine at Quixotic Paperie got her order delivered the other day! Had my eye on her since she came out, I think she's fab! Totally enjoyed colouring her in too:) Elaine has also got all the other new Greeting Farm releases in over at her shop so fill yer boots! I used some more Urban Prairie papers, and had went wild and used two different thread colours on my sewing machine! hahaha.

Stuff: Laundry stamp by The Greeting Farm available here, basic grey urban prairie papers, distress ink in worn lipstick, sewing machine, tulle from here, bling from stash, core'dinations cardstock, pins from here

Here's a little close up of the girly...dreaming of better things me thinks, at least she looks pretty though, I don't look that good sorting out the washing!

I'm also gonna enter this over at Anya Ink, a new challenge blog set up by my Beautiful and super talented friend Tracey and Marcia, who makes gorgeous creations too! The challenge there this week is to use patterned paper (easy right?!) so do go check it out! Also at Caardvarks (new blog to me!) they want us to do something fabulous with ribbon,

I'm ashamed to say I haven't been getting round to visit you all....and I'm so sorry! I shall though! I am keeping a keen eye on everything through my little google reader...am watching! Soon I'll get round and do some visiting, thanks for coming by to see me and any comments you might leave-love hearing from ya!

Incase anyone's interested this card will be going over into my etsy shop shortly to find a new home:)
