Really Mojo

Usually I complain that my mojo has gone on a walk about but not this time.  This time mojo went into full swing after I got into my jammies and was down for the night.  It was tugging at me and tugging at me till I cried uncle, got up and went to the drawing board.

I had been planning on using this stamp for my MFT April Guest Designer challenge card so I guess it was due to get inky.

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "What's Cooking"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Scattered Straw
paper - MFT "Banana Split" cs for base and mats; Georgia Pacific white cs for images and mats; October Afternoon "Modern Homemaker" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Stampin' Up ribbon; burlap twine; Blue Moon charm; ZVA crystals pink bling; Spellbinders nesties; button brads; the blender is a brad I got from Oriental Trading years ago; sewing machine; Creative Memories scalloped corner punch

don't forget the inside

Here's the challenges:
Mojo Monday MOJO185 - sketch
Really Reasonable Ribbon  #21 - use dies and punches
Going Grey - Pick 3 - I picked ribbon, charm and buttons (they're brads but they look like buttons)
Shabby Tea Room #56 - photo inspiration, I used the colors (and maybe there's some eggs in the batter)
Crafty Cardmakers #43 - Recipe Yellow, add ribbon, use stitching, use rhinestones or gems
Top Tip #28 - Thinking of you
City Crafter week 51 - Cheer Up, Get Well/Thinking of You
Corrosive #110 - Pastel colours

Thanks for visiting, I hope you'll come back again.
