Where the heck did it go!

 I don't know if this has ever happened to you.. but I have
lost it..  You know what I mean don't you..  Sure you do!
I just woke up the other morning and it was gone..
I looked everywhere for it..  But nope.. No where to be found..

You know what I am talking about don't you..  My Creative Mojo..
I looked under my bed and in the dishwasher..
  But I can't find it anywhere..  It's really hard to get things done with out it..
  If you know what I mean!!  If someone know where I can find
 it please let me know.. Cause I really
do miss it!  Have you ever lost your Creative Mojo?

Well I guess I better get down to the business at hand..
It is that time of the week again. Time for another challenge over at
City Crafter Blog Challenge.
Yep! Yours truly is Hosting this week!
 (Can you believe it, I am hosting with out my Mojo).

I did come up with a fun little challenge before I lost it.


I must say I think it is a perfect challenge.. If you know me at all
you know I love to put stitching on all my projects..
SEW that's it.  Just add some kind of stitching to your project.
 Or you can just create a project with something to do with sewing..

I used kraft paper and brown card stock to create this card.
That little stamped tag is from stamp'n up..

Of course some sewing and ribbon and buttons.. I even put on a couple of snaps.

So if you would like to join us this week you can get all the details over

I am also entering this card into a challenge going on over
at The Kraft Outlet - Where anything goes.

Thanks so much for stopping by and listening to me go on and on
I really do appreciated it!   I just know for sure I will
get my mojo back any day now!!

Hugs, Linda

This is just the cutest!! The use of the snaps is brilliant! LOVE it!

Terry said...

I think when I lose my Mojo, is when I don't craft anything. So for me it is more like taking a break! From my point of view, your Mojo is back and just as lovely as ever! Love this card! Happy day!

Hi Linda, I don't think your Mojo is gone, it is probably resting! Your card does not say lost it says wonderful for a wonderful challenge. I love all the little details! So fabulous! what is sew funny is that sunday night when I was doing my DT card for CQC I made a sewing card because the colors were giving me fits. Last night when I was doing my post, your challenge came across and I had to chuckle. Thanks for the sweet words.Hugs to you!

Love your card and those cute little poppers ... you know I read a great book by Cecelia Ahern called "A Place Called Here" ... "here" is where all missing things go .. odd socks, people, jewellery ... anyway I reckon that's where my Mojo takes off to every now and then ... thing is ... they do return so don't fret ... xxx

ain't for city gals said...

Losing your mojo is a terrible thing...I lost mine for about four years while going through menopause...hope you find it sooner than later..

Davi said...

Well I must say you must have made this one before you lost that mojo cuz its soooo fun!! Love the colors, stitching, distressing and the totally cool ric rac and those toooo fun snaps!!

Chriss Blagrave said...

Love the faux and real stitching on your tag and the black snaps add that little drama! The distressed edges are a wonderful touch and the ribbon clasp on top of your tag are lovely!
I hope to play along this week!

Stella said...

Looking at this I really don't miss a thing. So why talk about no mojo? Linda this is gorgeous!

I am a huge fan of your creations and because of that; there is an award waiting for you on my blog..:)

june lanum said...

It sure looks like you found it. Tell me where mine has been missing for quite some time. I've been thinking about putting out an APB, thinnk it would help?

Julie said...

Sure is Sew very sweet! Stop looking for your mojo and it will come up and bite you on the bottom! Mean time,check out this blog,
I'm sure it could awaken any hibernating mojo,
Have a lovely day sweetie,hugs,Julie.x

Becca said...

Hi Linda, I love the colors here. That green is such a lovely shade and of course I always love the kraft paper and your stitching! Doesn't look like you've lost your mojo to me! :-)

WhatKarenSees said...

What did I miss? I thought I read that you've misplaced your creative magic. Well, I beg to disagree.... but you did qualify that statement by saying you created this before you discovered the missing mojo. Whether before or after, I don't think it was lost. I think sometimes we get so involved in our interests we lose our perspective. It takes some time to take a step back and see our work from a different perspective or through someone else's eyes. My eyes tell me this is darling in every way!

Emily Keaton said...

This card is so sweet, Linda! And what a great challenge--I love to sew. Can't wait to play along! I hope you find your mojo soon. :)

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

I think sometimes our Mojo needs a rest and went to hiding for one, at least I know it is for me!!! I was so ill last week, I just couldn't find my Mojo anywhere, then I thought, maybe my Mojo needs a rest just like I do.
Oh well, that was me, but I don't think yours is resting, from this card... this is the usual Linda, lots of fun, always incorporate stitching, with a little special too, the 2 little snaps, so adorable!

Catherine said...

GAAAK! Hate it when the creative Mojo goes missing! But not to worry, I am sure it will come back soon. But in the meantime, your card is beautiful. Browns and greens, love them!

Happy Wednesday Linda!
xo Catherine

Tracy said...

Kee-ute! Now why am I NOT surprised that you picked stitching for this week's challenge. LOL Your card is wonderful Linda! You know what, your card would be perfect for our "anything goes" challenge over at The Kraft Journal. We'd love to have you play along and you might win some yummy kraft goodies.
I perfectly understand your mojo dilema. Sometime I just have to wait for it to come back like a stray cat. You never know when it will decide to return home. :-) Judging by your card, are you sure it ever left? Hugs

LeAnne said...

I don't think your mojo is gone....this is adorable!

Mona L. Pendleton said...

Sew cute Linda! Love the stitching and fancy ribbon treatment!

Lynnda Hosni said...

Your card is sew sweet, linda! Great and wonderful stitching and distressing too... Likewise... my mojo is "mood swing" LOL... i lose my mojo every so often too...not to my liking at all... I can just stare ...point blank!!...LOL...

Charlene said...

The detail you created here is awesome! I’m not one for making cards but this makes me want to give it a try. Nice job!

Audrey Pettit said...

My goodness, how adorable this is! Love, love it! I am a super huge fan of stitching, too, so this is right up my alley. Love the sweet tag and the ric rac and bow, and totally adore the snaps. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Kraft Journal.

Cynthia Schelzig said...

Your mojo never went anywhere! Lovely piece!!

Faye said...

Beautiful, Linda. My mojo is gone for sure, but I don't think yours is.

Elizabeth (Beth) Moore said...

This card is gorgeous! Thanks so much for joining us at The Kraft Journal this week!

Suzanne C said...

Adorable tag. So sweet and cute! I know that darn mojo is always hiding from me too! :) I know what you mean he can't be found anywhere when you need him!
