Easy Does It

Wildflower Garden_Hero Arts_2_June 2010

I was going to say I don’t know where my mojo is, but that wouldn’t be exactly true. It’s not lost but rather misplaced at the moment – buried beneath a pile of stuff somewhere. While I’ve been out and about the past few days, I’ve seriously ignored my own surroundings. Thus, when I get off the computer, I’m going to see if I can find the gumption to address, at the very least, the top layer. Then, I’ll feel better.

My card was made using the second stamp in Hero Art’s Wildflower Garden set. I colored it with markers and then huffed on it to refresh the moisture before laying the stamp down on my paper. It’s a big stamp. I ended up using a button for the flower center, because I evidently didn’t have quite enough huff in me to pull off a good image. Better luck next time.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Cocoa cardstock; Veranda paper packet; Cocoa ink pad; Sunflower, Garden Green, and Brown Bag markers; Hero Arts Wildflower Garden and Whipper Snapper Designs Blooming Expressions stamp sets; Basic Craft Buttons; Sponge dauber.

Even though there was plenty to do, it seemed like a long day today. It was probably because I was tired. While I went to bed and fell asleep early enough last night, I didn’t sleep very well, waking up every half hour or so for the first couple of hours. We’ll try again tonight.

How was your day? I hope it was a good one and that tomorrow is, too. With that, I’m off to look for my mojo with the hope it isn’t buried too deep. LOL. Take care, friends, and thanks for stopping by!

Great card - I love your back-story, I would have never guessed that you covered anything up! You are so funny!

Also - my mojo likes to hide under papers on my desk, too. If I clean up the desk, I almost always find it on the clean surface! I dunno if I just like to make messes, or if I am inspired by what I see whilst cleaning.

Sweet dreams dear friend, Hugs!

Terrific card, Kathi. I saw that set at Archivers and thought it was very pretty. Of course, I didn't have any inspiration at the time to make it jump into and stay in my hand. Now I do. LOL I never would have guessed either that you had to cover anything up.

I didn't sleep well the other night either, but I slept like a rock last night and hope you did, too!

Super pretty Kathi. I hope that you find your Mojo quickly although I honestly don't think you could ever lose it. Hope you got some better sleep last night.
