IN A HOLIDAY MOOD

Hello Peeps,
I am getting into a holiday mood now that we have hit June as I am off to see my daughter and grandbabies in 10 days time :-D
Much as I don't like the travelling, I am looking forward to seeing her and family.
I think though that my Mojo has left without me already as I am not feeling at all inspired and have commissions for 4 cards which are as yet unstarted :-(
In the hopes of enticing Mojo back, I thought I would mess with some ATCs (start small - right ??!!!) They are going to be on a Holiday theme for a Swap at Card Making World.

I found a really cool Seagull backing paper and it is marked Alice Potter, but I don't know where I got it from.
Then I cut out a snippet of postcard paper from a Vintage Card Pack that I bought from Create and Craft about 10 years ago ... LoL
The suitcase was a freebie and I paper pieced it with a picture of real leather. The little lady sitting on her case waiting to go is 'Angelina Flowertina Sitting' who is a freebie from CREATIVE BUG ON THE LOOSE, and I think she's still snaggable if you are quick :-D I coloured her with Promarkers and Copics.
The mini postcard says "καλό ταξίδι"... which is good journey in GREEK.




So - there we are. In an attempt to lure back my Mojo, it's not come out too bad. :-)

  7. Sorry your Mojo is on holidays before you but you'd never know it with this cute creation. Angelina Flowertina looks like she was meant to sit on that suitcase. You've coloured her so beautifully too. Thank you so much for entering our current Creative Bug Digital SnapShots Challenge. Good luck in the draw and I hope that we'll see you enter a future challenge as well!

    Hugs,
    Lisa
