I have pulled a Karen! In other words I have rescued something that becomes a bigger thing. LOL

This is Lily. I brought her home on Thursday night, she was frightened, abused and abandoned. No Animal Shelter would take her. So now she resides in my dining room. We are slowly gaining her trust. (Food works wonders) I even had my DH's approval. (Huge shocker there) You see we already have many animals that share our home, I mean what's ONE more right? Can you say 7..........LOL

We woke up this morning to the birth of kittens. Six of the little cuties to be exact. They are stinking adorable. But now I have to be the ogre and say that we can absolutely, positively not keep any. Yeah right.

I have a bad case of.............. Mojo-slump-er-rama!
I don't know where it comes from, it always seems to happen when I get a new stamp set that I love then can't do a thing with it. I have been in a slump for awhile......hence the no posting of super duper creations.

I think I may have had a small mojo infusion last night. Although I have a ton of 1/2 finished stuff cast aside on my table that didn't work, I had a couple that did work. (If they didn't, Please be kind. LOL)

I started with a base of Wild Wasabi.......I just like saying it, WASABI! I ran a piece of Pomegranate through the cuttlebug. I used the script folder. Then I randomly stamped a piece with the doodle this set, in guava and pomegranate. I used my quickie glue pen and covered that with dazzling diamonds. Mounted it on pomegranate and then on wasabi. :) Added the ribbon and tag and voila a cute card done fast.

For this card I used the same colours. I really heart them, too bad I only order 12x12..I am almost out of these colours.......GASP! Pretty simple I ripped the wasabi and pomegranate to frame the stamped images. The stamped piece was 4 by 5 1/4 and it made my head spin. Although I kind of liked it! Finished it with ribbon that has guava and pomegranate. Not sure I'm keen on the ribbon but the card is done.

For this I stamped the doodle this flower 3 times and cut them out. One was from pomegranate paper and the other 2 were whisper white. I coloured them using an aqua painter and pomegranate ink. The top flower got sprinkled with iridescent ice. I popped on a gem and pop dotted it to the paper. I stippled the paper with pomegranate cause it looked too white. LOL

I can't say that the mojo is back, but I think it is trying.

I finally got my copy of the July/August, Rubber stamper! I am very excited, I got published!!!! My very first time. I submitted alcohol ink cards. I love working with Alcohol inks, it is so much fun. I am so in awe to be counted in this article with lots of other fabulously talented stampers, like my friend Amanda Sewell (blog in column on right, Inkspirations).
Sorry the scan is off, but there is my card from page 44. Lot's of talented stampers in this issue. Check it out!
