Hi Christine - hope your hands are behaving themselves today and I found your Mojo in the ribbon section at the local supermarket - I put him on a plane to Newcastle and told him to be careful of the roads at that end - so hopefully he will be back home today!!
I'm still working on the Challenge list...grrr...but I might just have cracked it - I do wish Mr Blogger wouldn't keep altering things.
I suppose I'd better get round to commenting on your card (lol).
Great choice of colours and papers. Tilda is gorgeous and I love your details especially that cute little ladybird.
Thanks so much for playing along with us.
hugs Heather and the BG team xx
