Feeling Rusty


I've not been making many cards or crafting much at all recently. Blame it on the nice weather, being busy with work and oh yes, playing at, what for me is a complete addiction, God of War II, on the Playstation. A complete waste of time I know but such, such great fun. You'll just have to take my word for it.

Anyhoo, the wonderful peeps at Play Date Cafe have thrown up this week's colour challenge, turquoise, red, brown and orange. A split complementary scheme plus a neutral. Designer heaven!

On saying that, I found it a soupcon of an uphill struggle this morning. I guess I'm feeling just a little rusty. Mojo is only turned up to gas mark three instead of eight. I think I need to play with paper some more this weekend, get those creative juices running at full again. Maybe a couple of rainy days might help (we in the north west apparently really need a downpour and soon).

Hmm, feeling rusty and wanting rain! Anyone else think I'm mis-matching my mix of metaphors? lol (well at least I'm okay on alliteration).

I don't think your Mojo has left you at all, Paul! Terrific card! Congrats on getting Cream in our Coffee last week too! It has been really hot and humid with occasional thunderstorms in the Midwest.

You're quick of the mark this week! Fab card! I can identify with the computer game addiction - I'm totally hooked on an Iphone app called 'Angry Birds'! I keep telling myself "just one more level, then I'll go to bed....." x

Ooh, you've done that so well! I was dreading trying to use those colours together but they actually look fab. Love it, Paul. Mine will have to wait until next week now cos I'm away tomorrow for a few days. OOOh, congratulations, too! Didn't realise you'd managed 'Cream in the Coffee' - well done, you!

Love all those fantastic colours in the delicate shapes of this card. Beautifully put together. Mojo functioning fine, methinks! but if this is a three, gosh, can't wait for the eight!

It doesn't look like your mojo is down Paul, this is a lovely card! I really like the way you've described the colours of it too! Congratulations on being one of the 'cream in our coffee' players! Thanks for playing along with us this week at the PDCC :)

Your mojo never leaves you Paul. This is lovely and I do like these colours together - or I should say the way you have put them together.

Love how you've put it all together.
