A few cards

Well, I've had several requests for cards and had to just get on with them - mojo or no-mojo. I can't say I'm particularly thrilled with any of them, but I'm posting them any way, as I've nothing else at the moment.
The first one is a silver wedding card using Inkylicious stamps and silver embossing.
The second card is a Mo Manning Digi called 'I love it!'. I coloured it with promarkers and Used some MME papers behind it.
Not sure what happened to his hair - not the colour I wanted it to be!
Next we have a Penny black image, stamped for me by my good friend Jules and coloured with promarkers. I teamed it up with some Pink petticoat papers.
Finally we have some owls (one of my two magnolia stamps). I coloured the owls with promarkers, and did a bit of research on owl eye colour. Did you know that an owl with very dark eyes is normally active at night, an owl with yellow eyes is active during the day, and an owl with orange eyes is active at dawn and dusk? Unfortunately this lot look positively evil now! The papers here are MME also.
Thanks to those of you that wished me well on my course. I have to say I wasn't looking forward to it, but it was surprisingly very good, in that it was focused on the real world and will be useful too!
Well, thanks for looking, and if you see my mojo, please send it back to me pronto!

Stop being so hard on yourself Sally your cards are beautiful! I love your silver anniversary one and the demented owl look is very on trend (just kidding it's fab)x

These all look lovely to me Sally and I especially like the Silver Wedding one too. Those owls are really cute as is the little un.
I think sometimes we're our own worst critic but the recipients are sure to love these.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Goodness you've been busy! One of the things I love about your blog Sally is that you're a mine of information! I think the owl in your card might like to stop being so active and get a bit of kip! You sound very frustrated but your cards are lovely. Vx
