Mojo Moday 254

Finding my 'mojo' some weeks can be hard! However, I had a clear theme in my head this week of what I was going for - Shabby Chic! I even tried the 'sewing' on cardstock for the first time! The Antique Brad has been painted with White Shimmer Paint to give a more vintage/shabby chic look.

*New Visitors - Welcome. Mojo is a sketch challenge I enjoy to take part in and also love seeing other ladies fabulous works of art. Pop over to get some great inspiration at

This weeks Mojo Sketch: 

 My creation: 


I generally like to dedicate my cards to someone - after all, we make these creations for giving and I always have the person I am making for in my mind the whole time I'm creating.
 This week I was thinking of  the ultra talented, Teneale Williams. Teneale, who is not only my upline, but a friend. This sounds terrible, but I made a card to thank her for, well, just being her and didn't think it was worthy! I have since made two more and still didn't like them! I was determined this week to make her something spesh! I'm sure she will like my shabby chic card. I hope you all like it too!
