LOST: Mojo...

If found please return.

I really had to force myself to do this card so I could complete the Cowgirl Sunday Challenge #2 with blog hop.  You have to collect up the numbers off the DT blogs and challenge blog then post a card using black, white and red, then e-mail the added up numbers.  This challenge ends on Sunday and has run for nearly 2 weeks.

I will use the excuse that I had to rush my OH into hospital 2 times with 'intense aching pains' (his words) caused by Kidney Stones (don't feel sorry for him it's payback for when I went into labour and he wouldn't get out of bed and take me to hospital, long story, maybe told another time).  The first time I took him was Friday morning after the kids had gone to school and then on Monday afternoon just after the kids got home.  Both times he had to stay in over night to get pain relief and have a scan to see where the stones were.  He's back home now but still off work waiting for the stones to pass.

Anyhoo, the paper I have used is from a DCWV 12 x 12 paper stack No. 6.  I pleated the paper to make a rosette and used a Craftwork Cards sentiment in the middle. I used my big bite to punch out the small circles and stuck them on the black layer.

If I don't post again I hope everyone has a good weekend and for the people in England a good long weekend.

Hi Sweetie,
Looks like you've got your mojo back, this is a great card, very eye catching. I love the pleated rosette, I must have a bash at that.
Hope hubby is better soon, and I do think you should share the story, love to hear that!
Hope you have a great weekend.
Love Elaine xx

Aww poor hubby! They're just not built for pain I'm afraid...not like us women! My OH only has to stub his toe and you'd think someone chopped his foot off. Fab card by the way, clever how you pleated it xx Jenny xx
