Great sentiments!

Sadly my good intentions to spend some time in the craftie space on my return from the International series just went out of the window. Have spent the last 2 days doing paperwork, house work and other work!!! Have a meeting tonight but made myself sit for an hour to rest my back and make something (again Mr Mojo not here)....
Image from LOTV with some stronger colour added with Promarkers. I don't have to make a lot of kids cards but these pads have been useful for the odd ones I do have to make!
All of the papers are from my stash and are left overs. Playground for a quick visit then!)
Sewing machine was uncovered as I have been hemming a pair of bowling trousers and it seemed a shame to put it away without using it to add some interest to the card.

The sentiment is one of the set of kids sayings that I have had for years too... but all of them in the set make me smile.

I added a rather large button  from my stash (as it was the right colour) and a snippet of ribbon.
Looks OK despite Mr Mojo being on his holidays still - I think?
Am hoping that over the next few days I can get out my inks and really create something instead of staring vacantly at stamps and embossing folders!!!

Harrumph, just lost a half written comment. As I was saying, it's great to see you in the Playground Viv and your Mojo doesn't seem to have gone in the least. This is such a darling card - cutest little chap and a brilliant sentiment too :) Plenty of snippets, stitching and a lovely button and ribbon - perfect!

I love this cute little chap Viv and the pretty spotty papers and the button with the ribbon. The stitching is just perfect used here too. It is no wonder you feel unlike any cardmaking at present when you are so busy with your bowls commitments, that said this is a beautiful card. x
