Derailed..........Mojo 109......


Sometimes things derail in life. Last night my husband asked me to make a get well card for a co-worker. No problem I thought as I headed to my craft room - I'll follow the Mojo Monday sketch. I decided to pick a DSP that I have never used so I pulled out Nouveau Chic and Jackpot. Hmm, nothing too get-wellish about Jackpot - better focus on Nouveau Chic. I reached for the Kind and Caring Thoughts stamp set, a very get-wellish set, and some lovely So Saffron card stock. Darned if I know what happened next but the flower became a spider and Nouveau Chic turned to the dark side. Totally off the track...........

Great job!! Very clever and creative. Sometimes the best ones are the ones that start out in a different direction. :)

They need to rename that paper "Nouveau Spooky" in honor of this beauty!

I love when these derailments happen in the crafts room. That's my favorite part of the creative process--one is never quite sure where it will take you! Great job on this card. I'm glad you got derailed!

Such clever use of the flower (now turned spider). I love it when someone can "spin" a new use. Hugs, Mary
