At Last........A Card

Hello there everyone, sorry for the long absence but my card making mojo took an extended holiday and I got the card makers version of writer's block. No matter what I did IT just wasn't there, very frustrating but it just was not happening for me. My crafting mojo hadn't disappeared altogether as during my absence from the blogging and card making I have stitched a beautiful art deco peacock and also been knitting like there's no tomorrow producing cushion covers, a teddy bear (who is waiting to have his arms and head sewn on and to be stuffed), other small toys, a pair of gloves and am currently knitting a rug which is a longer term project and maybe better suited to the winter months.
Anyway back to the card making. One of my work colleagues asked me to do birthday cards for his wife and daughter and my mouth just says yes with no consideration for the departed mojo. So out came my stash, did a little blog trawling to try and find some inspiration and off I went. Yay!! MOJO is back. Still haven't made the cards for work but have made some others including making a start on my Christmas cards.
This card was made using a Penny Black Stickeroo which I matted and layered using card and paper from my stash, a piece of ribbon and some red dewdrops and voilĂ  there you have it my first card in ages. I am also entering this into the following challenges:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 159  - Christmas in July
Creative Inspirations Challenge 120 - No Flowers Allowed!
