Happy 4th July to all our American Cousins...

Good morning everyone and happy 4th July to all of you who celebrate it, I hope you have a fantastic day, I would love to know what you all do to celebrate the 4th July...well I decided to take your advice and chill and go with the flow where my mojo is concerned, I just grabbed the first papers I came to and the first image and made a card...so still mojoless but at least making something...I got a lovely surprise yesterday, Phil arrived home at 11am and said get ready I'm taking you out for lunch, its things like this that make him being home for good so special, I still cant believe how lucky we are to be together full time now...don't get me wrong his little ways take some getting used (as I'm sure mine do for him) lol but we are getting there and enjoying each others company...now a little moan why on earth would an estate agents advertise a house and then tell you that you cant view it until the 1st September, seriously what is the point of putting it on now then????...does that make no sense to you either or is it just me being picky lol...right now onto my card for today how cute and pretty is this sweetie from Mo's Digital Pencil, shes called Big Shoes B and is the ethnic version, I told you I would do more darker skin tone images didn't I...I don't think I did her skin dark enough and although they are darker skinned I still used the same distress inks as usual to colour her...I teamed her up with more of these lush Bazzill Basics 6x6" Multipack - Vintage Marketplace from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I love these lush papers, I finished my card with some lush coloured seam binding and a layered flower from my stash (I think its K&Co)...the fabulous sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the Creatalicious challenge and Digital Tuesday challenge too...haven't a clue what I'm up to today but I'm not going to stress about creating anything at all...will just go with the flow be laid back and chill, am I sounding convincing yet lol...whatever your up to today have a fantastic stress free day and have fun if your celebrating

I would say that it is false representation, can't advertise it for sale if it isn't yet!
Meanwhile, a gorgeous card, especially if your mojo is still in hiding! :o)

hello, just woke up here on the east coast of the us. going to be a hot sunny day. to start we play some tennis. we have 8 ladies getting together at 8:30 for a couple of hours. then i'm gonna try and slip a nap in. ok it won't work but maybe a rest. i'm making deviled eggs and my dh made cupcakes for our party this afternoon. we use to go to watch fireworks but the dogs are so upset by the ones in our neigborhudd we come home to relieve their anxiety. plus it's our neighborhood not an aproved area for fireworks, so we like to be home in case some go awry. we find left overs in our yard and on our roof, often. sometimes we get a late night storm and they go inside. love watching the fireworks, always so explosive and beautiful. we have a club near us that has their own on the lawn. we can usually see it and hear it for sure.

now on to your mojo, i have looked and look for it. i think maybe it got soggy in the rain and will be dried out and back soon. your card is gorgeous mojo or no mojo!
