Mojo has sailed away............

My mojo has seriously deserted me this week - I've had other things on my mind and have been a wee bit stressed out so consequently have not done any crafting other than to sit and shuffle pieces of paper about!

I made this 'man' card the week before last and as I haven't posted anything this week thought I should pop it on to share.

Not very inspiring is it?? LOL
Think it reflects how I feel!

Anyway, image stamped with Versamark and some light shading with promarkers. Two pices of black card put behind it in a 'fan/sail' type layout and mounted onto K and C striped paper.
I used some twine and a little fish charm on the top.

There are some 'Man' challenges about so am entering -
Sweet Stamping - Masculine 
Hotshot Crafts - One for the Boys
Wags N Whiskers - Masculine Birthday
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Manly
Whimsy - Monochromatic
Creative Card Crew - Masculine

Am off now to shuffle some more paper!!!
Thanks for visiting, have a lovely day whatever you're doing! x
