Im baaaaack

After a fantastic time away from Xmas to after New Years which we spent camping I came home minus my mojo.   Despite my best intentions to stamp while away and having lugged ALL my gear with me I just didn't get around to it.   I've been searching for said mojo ever since we returned home until today when I decided that rather than try and find it I would force myself to just start making and see what happened.

Using this weeks colour challenge over at Just Add Ink and with a fish around in my box of scraps I found a few bits and pieces that helped get me on my way.   Before Xmas I was making a fair few of these gift card holders and must have cut one out of Riding Hood Red.   It was sitting folded in my box so that's where I began.  I didn't have any elegant eggplant so used concord crush instead, needs must and all that.

Hope you all like the final result.
