i have a pork joint in the oven and veggies ready to prepare.ironing is done. floors mopped and windows wide open now i just need to find some mojo to make a card.i`m feeling a little dispondent with my card making at the mo.you know sometimes you sit and think if your cards are all too samey and boring.ah well i`m gonna have good old nosey through my stash and try and kick start the creativity.
