Trying to find my mojo....

Hi everyone. Lordy, it's been, like, two weeks since I've posted anything. Well, last week we were on vacation at the beach (sigh, I miss it so...) and this week was so gorgeous every day that I just couldn't bring myself to go hide out for hours in my craft cave. Now, I think I've lost my crafty mojo. I did try making a card today, and it turned out so lame! I know I can do so much better than this. But, since today happens to be my birthday and soon my fabbo hubby will be home to whisk me off to a nice dinner, I'm going to post this card anyway. (Seeing as I won't be making any more cards tonight) Brace yourself:


and the inside:


I'm going to plow on and enter this for both Mojo Monday 258, and the Color Throwdown 209.

I used Unity Stamp's Harvest of Memories set and stamped three of the leaves in Memento Rich Cocoa, Rhubarb Stalk and Bamboo Leaves on the white panel. In hindsight, I should have double stamped those (stamp first on some scrap paper then again on my panel) so they wouldn't be so bold and bright. The paper and stickers are from American Crafts Night Fall collection. Oh! That reminds me! I was at Michael's today and spied a Recollections stack that was pretty much the same as the Night Fall collection. Did I miss a memo or something? I know DCWV puts out stacks under the Recollections name, but does American Crafts do that also? Or did DCWV and American Crafts merge? Inquiring minds want to know!

Anywhoooo, thanks for stopping by. I promise that I will do better next time, which I know will be tomorrow. Have a great weekend!

Chris ☺
