Just a quick post tonight. I wanted to post two cards I made today for a couple of challenges I'm participating in.
http://ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/ , which was to use punches or dies on your creation. I used both. The punch is EK Success, and the die is a Nestabilities. Patterned paper is K & Company.
I am also entering this in the COLOUR CREATE challenge http://colourcreatechallenge.blogspot.com/ , which is to use ivory, duck egg blue, and one other color from their inspiration picture.
Check out these blogs - I've provided the links. Maybe you'll even like to give it a try, and join one or both of them! Would love to see you there!
This next card is for the OUR DAILY BREAD ON ASSIGNMENT challenge. We need to use a bird and ODB stamps (the bird stamp doesn't have to be ODB). Here's my Birds of Seasons card for the ODB on assignment challenge.
I'm not quite sure, really. First, hubby made us breakfast, then we were off to the public market. Just a quick trip, I was assured. Well, while we're out, I have a Kohl's $10 off a $10 purchase coupon...it would be a shame not to use it. Then, we had to stop at the bank. Let's just stop quick at the one garage sale. I think you're starting to get the picture.
Finally home. I gave the downstairs living area a quick "lick and promise" cleaning (I figured nobody would be coming upstairs if they stopped in), and I was FINALLY able to start my weekend of stamping.
Hubby went out for the afternoon, and I went upstairs to my "room," and sat down to get to work. Uh, oooohh! NO MOJO! Where or where did my mojo go?!
I sat and stared at my "stuff," answered the phone and talked with a friend, who was having a similar problem focusing, answered some emails, Facebooked (bet you didn't know Facebook could be a verb), even advised a fellow-stamper how to break out of a no-mojo mood! I made myself a little snack, (well, I needed nourishment, after all), poured a little vino (hey, it couldn't hurt), and sat down to get to work again.
Uhggggg!! I walked up and down the stairs a couple of times, checked the mailbox, and then finally just sat down at my table and made myself start working.
I finished these two cards around 6:30 PM, and sat and chatted with hubby for an hour or so. Now, I'm going to get my jammies on (YES, at 8:30) and we're going to watch a Redbox movie. I'm going to bed right after the movie, and hoping that I will find my mojo tomorrow! I don't have anywhere to be except church, and will have the rest of the day. Wish me better luck tomorrow!
