Twit Twooooooooo!


OK so I'm finally caught up on the chores, on Google Reader and I sit down all ready to get inked up and what happens...? Nothing! Nada! Mojo is still on holiday mode it seems....*sigh* Don't you just hate it when that happens!

So seeing as my mojo is MIA I figured that I could share a card with you that I made before I left for my trip by the sea-side. I had a few cards to make for birthdays last week and this week and thankfully my mojo was still with me for them!

This card was created for my nephew, Charlie's second birthday:

Twit Twoo Today!

I don't usually do cute but I do love to indulge in it every now and then and you can never beat a good pun IMHO!

Owl Close Up

I wanted to add some interest to the card for Charlie, and seeing as he's not exactly reading yet and unable to appreciate the punny sentiment, I opted for some good ol' googly eyes. I've recently inherited a huge pack of 'em since I made my guy watch the kids show, OOglies (have you seen it? It's seriously funny!) He was so inspired by it that he purchased a load of googly eyes to attach to random objects on his desk at work to make the days brighter. Gotta love that kiddy sense of humour of his :D

Seeing as this card features quite a lot of Hero Arts goodness I'm gonna enter it into their challenge this month, Creatures & Cards for Kids (also the technique of making a scene too) BTW - that owl on my card was a total bargain: it was purchased as a digi image. For less than a dollar you can print sheets of these cuties off and colour the days away - check it out for yourself here!

Right I'm off to get some inspiration around blog land to get my mojo into gear. I'll be back tomorrow with a new CASE study - mojo or no mojo - ha!

Catch ya later!
