I Made a Card and Now I'm Gonna Blog About It

Hi friends!  I hope you are well.  So... you like my title?  It's pretty profound.  ;)  Honestly, I used to do this every single day.  Did you know?  I blogged everyday.  And now, I'm lucky to blog twice a month.  I'm having a hard time with this.  I WANT to want to stamp but I most often don't.  Does that make any sense at all?  I wish I still had that drive and desire.  Please send mojo!

My friend Veronica helped me get my bum in gear today.  I could not have done this without her.  I am playing along in a couple challenges with this card.  My friend Laura recently launched a challenge blog so I definitely wanted to play along with her Poppy Sketches.  I didn't realize that there would be a color challenge too so I tried to work that in.  Color challenges are the hardest for me.  I also played along with the Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes Challenge for this week.  The stamps are obviously Paper Smooches from the Spectrum set.  I looooooooove unicorns!  The paper is Chickaniddy as are the stickers and enamel hearts.  I added washi tape and lace tape.  Also, the unicorn is colored in with the clear Wink of Stella shimmer pen.


Have a wonderful day, friends!  I hope to blog again soon.  Hopefully.  Some mojo would be nice.  ;)

  1. Sending mojo your way! I'm like that at night lately. I have the best ideas during the day (when I can't be near my crafty space) and when I get home I'm too tired, but I'm sure when the time is right all the planets will align and you'll be crafting once again! I think this card is a great start!

  7. I went through a spell like yours. Just had no creative mojo flowing. Then my mother in law put a 6x6 pad of DP in my Christmas stocking and BOOM!!, just like that it was back. It'll come, don't force it. And try not to get frustrated. We will all be here waiting when you return. :)
