Blah, blah, blah!!!!



Oh boy, am I going through a sticky patch at the moment! I just don't seem to be able to create anything.

In one weekend of sitting in my craft room, this is the only thing that I have managed to come up with, I have thrown my little boy's body weight in cardstock away over the weekend. It's not false modesty, honest, I just seem to have forgotten all the rules of what I like.

The front panel of this card has been made three times. The first one as I colored with an aquapainter ran everywhere, the second, I did a shadow around the vase and it was horrific. Don't ask me why I used yo-yo yellow, but I did! :) Horrible, horrible, horrible.

I have made an exploding box, I'm teaching a class next week, but I haven't decorated it yet. I want to make a birthday card, rather than a scrapbook album and I'll show you what I come up with.

So if you see my mojo hanging around in all the wrong places, can you please send it on home!

Alli me thinks your mojo is hanging with mine, it must be a UK thing going on, cause mine has left the building as well!!!! he he. I have made one card this morning and that was for the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS, but that was it, how sad is that, and I got my Green thumb Papertrey set as well!!!! the mind boggles

I love how bright and cheerful this card is! Your "Cuttled" background and rick rack look great, as well as your coloring!

I really like the yellow on this card - although, TBH, I thought it was Summer Sun.

Alli your card is wonderful, but I know what you mean, some times I feel like I'll never make a good card again, and everyone will find out I really don't know what I'm doing. LOL. Then on other day, I come up with a card I'm proud to show off. Keep on stampin' it happens to all of us.
