Mojo 'Meh'.....

Here is my it technically 'playing hooky' from work if it is the weekend...and I REALLY should be doing work?

Busted! I deliberately walked away from weekend work to play in the Bubble.

I'm not sure how I came across this card challenge site - but I think I am going to add it to my REGULARS! Fusion - what a cool name! I just couldn't resist making a card! I love the site - really like the current challenge - but am just "meh" about my card. I think my Mojo was a NOJO today. I'll follow along at Fusion and see if I can't hit one out of the park next time! On the UP side I did get a chance to use this awesome measuring tape twill! I bought it on a Sisters Adventure in Freemont, NE! Oh the unexpected treasures!

Maybe I should go back and add some real stitches - my sewing machine will be in SHOCK if I use it... Upon further reflection it should probably have a button also...Or pearls...maybe some pearls...

Sure NOW my Mojo kicks in...too late sista - I gotta go back to my world of college resume' reviews!

  1. Nothing more fun than playing hooky! Since it's the weekend though it's not only fun but required!
    Looks like your mojo/nojo is just fine to me! Love that measuring twill and it's perfect on this cute card. The little paper pieced dress form is precious!
    Hope things slow down for you soon since I know you're super busy with graduation coming up.

  2. Hi my lovely Nancy, I'm thinking you need your eyes tested, there is NOTHING wrong with this card, it's gorgeous and has given me some inspiration on how to use the lovely new sewing themed papers I've just treated myself to and guess what, it has dressforms in abundance lol!

  3. Love the designer papers together. I think your Mojo is definitely around. Lovely card.

  4. Love the layers and love the vintage theme you've added to your card! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

  5. Lovely card, great use of the measure tape ribbon, I have some, and didnt even think of that, so good one you! Thanks so much for joining us at FUSION!!

  6. LOVE this card, Nancy! The dress form is very cool (so retro, and cute), as is the measuring tape ribbon. Great, bright colours. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!

  7. Getting to spend hookey time stamping sounds like a great way to spend the time Nancy. Great choice of patterns as they really do conquer up vintage fabric. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  8. Beautiful card... love the way everything goes around the sewing theme. Nice!

  9. I hate to have you shock your sewing machine...LOL, but you don't need to. Your card is really good just as it is. I love that retro patterned paper and the ruler ribbon. GREAT idea! Don't change it one bit!

  10. So glad you found fusion. Hope you join us again :) Your card is very darling and i love that cosmo collection. So fun and retro. The twill you added was perfect. Thanks for joining in :)
