Is My Mojo Round or Square?

Today is my entry for Mojo Monday Challenge No. 123, which is a sketch challenge with a difference - make it round, or square, or both.  Here's the sketch:

Now, round cards are something I've never tried before and, to be honest, have never considered trying because they seem like a lot of fuss.  This would definitely be a challenge for my mojo.  But, 'challenge' is the word, so I thought I'd have a go, not only at the round one but at a square one too.  I made a matching pair:

And separately:

Sorry for the quality of the photos today - I think there was slightly too much light for the camera to get a good grip on the focus, so they're a bit blurry.  Still, you get the picture (or three!).

The 'image' is just some text I typed up in Publisher.
Papers: (now you're asking) - ScribbleScrabble (dots) and, er, the flowers? I can't remember, but the details are elsewhere on my blog, I think, as I've used this paper for another card recently.

The beautiful wooden hearts were bought about two years ago from a local haberdashers - 'Duttons for Buttons' - in York.  It is an amazing shop - they have a mega-selection of buttons and trimmings. I just fell in love with these wooden ones.   The other buttons are stash.

I'm still getting over my surprise last night - I almost daren't use my new toys, despite having coveted them for so long.  I've sat and watched a load of videos on You Tube so there's only one thing left to do - try them out.  I'll let you know how I get on, although it may be a while before you seen the first Copic post, depending on the results!

Anyhoo, I'm off to Mojo Monday to link up.

Happy crafting
