Who stole my Mojo?

So who was it that stole my mojo? some of you know I currently have the decorators in the house making over DS's bedroom so thought I would use the opportunity to make some cards, only problem is that everything is going wrong!!

First I made a lovely lilac card, but it looks wonky, even though it isn't, and believe me I have had the ruler measuring every single mm of the card to make sure!! not sure if it is just the paper and the embossing or what?



Then I decided to ink up a stamp which arrived this morning, I pre ordered 3 new stamps from ladybug crafts ink and had forgotten about them so a nice suprise when they arrived!! however everything seemed to go wrong with these aswell!! ... guess its not too bad but it is far from perfect and I could give this little chap so much more justice!! I also tried to decorate the inside .... NEVER again!




Maybe a sever lack of any kind of embellishment? but when I put things on to see how they would look they looked daft! 

ARGH! so who is going to send my mojo back then?

Oh what a gorgeous image on your lilac card. Can't see what's wonky about it. I'm like you, I can see if something is half a mm out and have to try and find what's wrong. Is your card blank properly square? Sometimes mine isn't and I end up chopping it about, although you can't do that with a scalloped one.

I like the other card too, brought a smile to my face.

Tams, the lilac card is beautiful, that is such a sweet image and suits the whole lilac theme. Your second card is gret and made me smile.

Tams - I don't think you need to worry about your mojo at all. I love the little boy card - wonderful image.
