Mojo Monday meets Play Date Cafe Scrapbooking in Melbourne,Florida



Oh, it's good to be back!

Thank you for all of the encouragement during my morosity (new word?).  I hope the mojo has returned -- I made four cards today!  wooHOOO!!!  I decided to sit down in my studio and just create for fun -- no design team projects (although they are fun!!!) -- no restrictions; just create.

So I started with a card for my BFF Rindy, which you'll see in a couple of days.  Then a card for my BFF Tami.  These gals really were my lifeline a couple of weeks ago during my unfortunate incarceration (my layoff - ha).

Then I moved on to a couple of challenge cards.  Now, this is the first time I've ever made a card that actually fits two challenges!  I used Julee's Mojo Monday 150 sketch.  Wow, this sketch rocked!  I always forget about my corner rounder, so this was a fun reminder that it's in my stash.

I also fulfilled the Play Date Cafe's Challenge 41, which is a color challenge.  What great inspiration there!

I was so excited to get to play with Spellbinders'(TM) brand new release S4-297 Nested Crown(R) die templates.  Yum!!!!  The darker portions are actually inked through the holes in the die template - that's what's so great and unique about Spellbinders die templates!  Click on the photo to get a closer look.

So how's your mojo?  If you are stuck like I was, try making something just for fun - no restrictions.  Or try one of the sketch challenges - I've linked several here in the left column of my blog.  Let me know how it works out!

Till next time,

Hi Deb! I'm not surprised that you've posted a card with the crown!! When I first got a peek at that new stamp set, I immediately thought of you! How fun!

Hugs!

This is wonderful! Love your style. Especially like how you've rounded the edges on only two corners to give a clean slightly quirky shape. And your ribbon is DIVINE! Px

First, I love your card and am glad to see you are getting your mojo back.

Secondly, I am so sorry to hear about your job. While I can't (or won't) say I know how you feel, I do understand how you might feel lousy even though what is going on with jobs and the medical industry hasn't got a darned thing to do with you.

I hope the stamp therapy and support of your friends helps you keep your chin up. You're a good gal...
