Mojo Mojo, Wherefore art thou Mojo?

Oh Mojo, why hast thou forsaken me?

Morning all, how are we today?  Most of the UK will have some sort of snowy/frosty covering I am sure but wherever you are, I hope you are all warm and safe.

We've had a good dose of cold this week - there was one night when it plummeted to -15C here in Suffolk, and trust me, for this part of the country, that is REALLY cold!  My poor creaky knees felt like they had been whacked with a baseball bat.  Which could explain why I am sat here with my thermal PJ bottoms on under my trousers!

In my naivety, I had thought that once Christmas was over and we got back into the routine of work and craft that my Mojo would make a return ..... oh go on, call me a fool, the little devil is nowhere to be seen.  If he has any sense he is snuggled up under the duvet but that means I am struggling for ideas and inspiration with my cards, as has been pretty evident lately.

But I am not one to give in lightly so I've had a play this morning (well you didn't think I was going out there did you?) and have made a card for CARDS FOR MEN who have Men At Work for their theme.  Yeah, I know, this is pretty loose interpretation but what the heck.  I thought it would fit well for any man going to work in HR ......!!

A bit of an eclectic mix of ingredients for this one:
Image is LOTV Walk The Plank
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Main DPs are Prima Craftsmans Journey and the red is from NitWits GingerFellas Solids
Sentiment is LOTV
Photo Corners are Sizzix

I have some DT work to be doing so first I must go searching under the duvet - wish me luck.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

This is my favourite LOTV stamp ever! I love this image and love how you've used it. I can't see that your mojo has gone anywhere hun - this is terrific. However, if you're gonna look for it would you mind looking for mine whilst you're at it? I like to start looking in the biscuit tin and work from there. Mwah crazy woman! xxxxxxxx

Fabulous male card, Squirrel. I love the cute image, and your colouring is fab. Great design too.

Looks as if we both are experiencing extremes of temperatures. We had 47C a few days ago.
