Let the Creativity Begin!

I’m having a hard time finding my mojo. It started before we left on vacation, what with the rushing around, packing, etc. And I didn’t touch a single craft supply the entire week we were gone! So you can image how anxious I am to get back into the swing of things. I find that the best way to do that is to recreate a previous design. So this is what I came up with tonight:




This is a simple design based on this card. I like the color combination of the cream, green and purple. And my curved rectangle die hasn’t been used for months! While I’m not completely in love with this card, it did the trick to get me back into my craft space and inkin’ up my stamps once again! And with Mother’s Day and my daughter’s birthday both happening this weekend, you can bet I’ve got to keep the creative juices flowin’!

So Pretty! Looks like your mojo is back where it belongs. I know what you mean though. Everytime we go away for a weekend and I dont stamp it takes a week to get back into it. Have a great day. -Molly B
