Hoots and Squeaks

At the moment I seem to be just 'putting cards together' rather than having any real enthusiasm for what I'm doing and here are two that I made for challenges to try and get me motivated. I'm hoping that now the weather is getting colder Mojo might decide to return home and stop all these silly hide and seek games and give me some proper inspiration!

Anyways here's my first card using an NBUS Woodware stamp I managed to pick up on sale a few months ago. I used my usual Promarkers to colour him and added some googly eyes for fun. The paper is two leftover pieces that were from one of my CDs - can't remember which as they've been in the 'bit' box for over a year now - and I found the sentiment in the 'recycling' box

This is for the following challenges

Allsorts 'forest friends'

Penny Black and More 'all creatures great and small

Stamping Sensations 'anything goes'

Now for my second card which I made using one of the decoupaged images from the Joanna Sheen House Mouse CD I had already made up. Luckily I've still got a fair few of these left from when I had a mad printing, cutting and sticking phase some time ago. So with the addition of Dovecraft paper, 'happy birthday' and balloon dies and a piece of bakers twine I have another card.

and this is for the following challenges

In The Pink '5th birthday so anything goes'

Card Mania 'party'

and as the dies were cut from snippets I shall skip over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to see the Playmates

Thanks for popping by today and I hope you all have a great week.

Who needs Mojo when your producing cards like this! I love your Googly owl. He is rather super with his snazzy scarf to keep him warm. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Andrea! First of all - I know what you mean about missing mojo - although yours obviously hasn't gone far! LOVE the Christmas card and of course your HM snippets card is just adorable! I never get tired of HM - always so whimsical and entertaining as well. Lovely to see you in the Playground!

Lovely cards, especially the owl with his googly eyes. I don't think you're the only one with missing mojo at the moment, there are a few of us feeling the same!

Well Kanda your "putting together" seems to be making brilliant cards.
Fabulous owl image and love the choice of red for him, lovely background papers too.
Super second card, also would fit our challenge as I am certain there would be mice in forests.
Thank you for joining our 'Forest Friends' challenge this week at Allsorts.

All can say nay Andrea is your doing a pretty good job without Mr Mojo, the first card is just adorable, something about Owl's that always make you smile and this one is a real beauty. You HM card is also adorable.

Many thanks for sharing that sweet Owl with us at Allsorts, Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations challenges.

I think we all get a bit like that sometimes when the mojo takes a walk! Loving your two cards though, lol at the googly eyes on the owl! Don't see enough house mouse, they are adorable images.
