My mojo returns and the plot goes missing


My Mojo seems to have returned but I've totally lost the plot this week. I entered a card on the wrong Mr. Linky, I made challenge cards for two challenges linked my post to the challenges then forgot to enter them and finally today I made this card and couldn't remember which challenge it was for and had to search to find it. It was for this fabulous sketch by Fiona over a Stampin' for the Weekend.

EDITED: I knew there was something else - I really have lost the plot - (cold weather - brain's gone into hibernation) - I found a piece of paper I'd written the challenges on, I also intended to enter this into the OCC challenge which is to use the colours blue and green.




I used the Sugar Nellie image Reflective from Funky Kits. One thing about moving - everything gets packed away and you find things you'd forgotten you had on unpacking and re-organizing, and I just love this image, one of my all time favourites. I coloured her with Copics and cut her out using the Spellbinders labels 4. The papers are MME but I'm not sure which as I got them all mixed up. The borders are cut with the MS punch, the leaves with the Leone Em  and the base flowers with a Woodware cherry blossom punch. I received a fabulous little goody bag from my friends Sharon's new internet shop - Truly Scrumptious Crafts (take a look at the picture below, or better still have a look at the site, Sharon's picture are much better than mine - taken in the dark yet again) I couldn't wait to use the ribbon and the gorgeous heart charm. - I also used some of the ribbon to make two small ribbon roses for the center of the flowers to which I added seed pearls.

Super sweet card! I love that image too and it looks beautiful the way you have it colored with the darker blue sponging around the edge. The blue and green shades you used are so pretty.

I had to laugh at your post and immediately identified with it. Today I made a DT card and submitted it for the wrong week's challenge!! I'm glad you found where you had written that you wanted to play with the OCC this week!
