Mr Mojo has been hiding

Yesterday was a singularly unproductive day, today has gone a little better with a few cards being accomplished!
These fab flowers are for the Border One Layer Wednesday challenge hosted this time by the wonderful  Heather T. Both the flowers and the sentiment are from Stampendous ... maybe that's why they complement each other so well!
It's also for the Dynamic Duo celebratory challenge where any of the previous year's colour combos could be selected. I chose Primrose Petals plus my choice which is the greeny grey of the foliage. 
They have been coloured with Promarkers.

A package of goodies arrived from Paper Smooches this week and this lovely little flamingo was amongst the haul.
The border die which cut the choppy sea, was also part of my purchase.  I believe that the clouds are from a Dienamics die.
I'm submitting this to CAS on Sunday's Pastel Pretties challenge.
The final one for today uses this really cute ellie from SU's Patterned Occasions set. I masked the sentiment which is part of the stamp before inking as I didn't that three times over too. This card gains its inspiration from the Muse challenge where this card was the origin of my idea.
I used a few shades of SU purple ink and a scrap of Pink Petticoat DP from the drawer.
The sentiment is from SU Friendly Phrases.
As you can see I chose the theme of the three elephants in horizontal orientation from this sample card.

I just order my first (few, ahem) PS stamps and can't wait to get them all inky. Your flamingo card is simply CASliciousness!!
