Challenge Hels...

...Nay and thrice!!! I know that January is usually one of those months that everyone feels a bit cheesed off and so on but... I don't think that this is any excuse for my Mojo to naff orf on its holidays, leaving me floundering and sitting here with a head full of idea's and no way of actually using them!!! I seem to recall it did this last January... maybe there is a pattern developing... and that Mojo is having a lovely holiday in the sunshine... sipping the only drink that any self respecting Mojo would drink... namely Moj-ito's (grrroan!!!) Anyways, as it customary when Mojo goes AWOL, I do a "Challenge Hels" card - grabbing a few ink pads and a few stamps and some kind of embellies... So, today I have a challenge Hels card that I made using stashly goodies from The Stamp Attic.. oh and all the deets on how I made the card are HERE on the Stamp Attic blog :O))




I am in a bit of a grump today... mainly because I have got to go to the Opticians this afternoon... I have run out of contact lenses (poor planning on my part on that one) and I have had to resort to wearing my specatics, which I totally hate. Actually, the specs are nice, I just look like a dork in them ... and I keep bashing them too because I forget they are on my face... and if I am not busy trying to injure myself with them, I am forever taking them off and swinging them around by the arm (not sure why I do this... it is a bad habit and one that serves no purpose cos when I am swinging said specs around by their arm, I am rendered blind as a bat!!!) Anyways, I have to see the Optician before I can have any new lenses - they need to check that my eyes are still "normal" and that I haven't got blinder (great command of the English language there ROFL) in the last year. Ohhh, and another thing I hate about specs... is... when I am looking down onto my desk - if I am stamping or inking, I have to slide said specs down my nose a bit otherwise I can see underneath them. I end up with them perced on the very tip of my nose (tis a good job indeedily that I have...erm... rather large flarey nostrils to keep them in place) and I push them back up my nose and end up with a streak of whatever ink I am using at the time... imagine how attractive I look with a streak of Rusty Hinge up my schnozzle. Anyways... I had better go and get myself ready for my appointment... thanks for looking and have a goodly day! TTFN

Love that mothy birdy thingy. I hate glasses too and wear contacts.Mine are gas permeable though so don't need to keep replacing them. BUT, I need reading glasses so the next step for me is a white stick and a labrador!!!!
Luv Joanne xx

I hate wearing my glasses too. I lost a lens on the way to a course for work in Portsmouth once and had to wear my glasses for three days, meeting new people. I was not very self confident those days I can tell you! Good luck at the opticians and hope they get your lenses out to you super quick!

I am still trying to get used to my glasses - in fact I am being very bad and not wearing them all the time....
Love the card, though it's lovely.

I hope Mr Mojo returns from his vacation tanned and ready to play nicely for you... he is obviously accompanied by my Mr Mojo.... but I went and spent a fortune at the local craft shop yesterday to entice him back home early!!
Hope you get the contacts sorted... rusty hinge streaks up the nose are not this year's look!!

I hate wearing my specs, but sadly I cannot wear lenses, I am getting to the stage when I going to have to wear them all the time, boo I hate getting old! A lovely tag Hels,your mojo looks in tact to me.

Mojo drinking Mojitos.... booooo.... (actually, was pretty clever!) You crack me up! Good luck at the optician... hope you get your contacts soon. Challenge Hels turned out AMAZING! Your "no-mojo" sure looks good to me! Started my first ATC this morning! FUN! Talk soon - Hugs, Els xxx

ROFL Hels - I love reading your posts!!! I laughed my socks off at your description of yourself in your glasses! I've never worn contact lenses and would hate to put anything in my eye! I now wear varifocals all the time and get on with them fine - they are part of my face and I don't notice them any more. So much so that I have been known to wash my face without taking them off first... Duh.

Love your card! If Mr. Mojo is off on his hols, not sure who's moved in with you lol! My Mr. Mojo is asleep atm.

Krisha said...

ROLFLMAO! Oh Hels, I think I know where your Mojo is......sitting right beside mine in a far off island of sunshine and white sandy beaches!! Contacts and spec, have them both and can relate very well.
With no Mojo and blind as a bat your card is really wonderful! LOL
