Respite from a flagging Mojo

I don't know whether it has been the weather in Sydney (copious amounts of rain and heavy at times) of the fact that I produced soooooooo much at the Crafter's retreat.................but my creative MOJO has been MIA for about 2 weeks or so. I have not had the want or desire to pick up a stamp, design a card or ANYTHING. It is the weirdest feeling. I have had cards in varying stages of completion but just have not had the impetus to finish them.

I saw this cards on SCS some time back (and followed the trial to the creator) when I first got my Vintage Vogue set. It was very stark, but it sewed the seeds of an idea. I also, in my quest to boost my stash, I have one to go in portrait and this is the 1st....in landscape. Also...I used PINK!!

I used my "Teeny Tiny Sentiments" for the first time. but something was still missing. The you have one of those lightbulb moments. I recalled a Cuttlebug border that may work to fill the stark bits....and guess what...IT DID!!!

Here are closeups of the sentiment and the Cuttlebug embossing.

I was so happy with the finished product. I can only hope that this kickstarts my mojo in the guts and I can move forward. I will hopefully post the partner to this card in the next couple of days, weather permitting.

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss, Whisper White
Ink: (SU) Markers - Pretty in pink, Mellow Moss, and Mellow Moss ink pad
Stamps: (SU) Vintage Vogue, Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
Other: Cuttlebug "Just My Type" Embossing Borders

Your cards turned out lovely Lynda. That c/b embossing fits perfectly! I too have had no interest in crafting lately and have found it so frustrating. I'm forcing myself in the hope I'll get back into it soon lol.

This lovely Lynda, and yes the cuttlebug edges did finish it off, I love it and so easy too. TFS!

Soo sorry your mojo has been MIA - but it looks like it's found it's way home! Love the cuttlebugged bits - gorgeous Miss Lynda!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Love it, love it, love it! The embossing is the PERFECT finishing touch and the result is lovely. Will be adding this one to the caseing file, ta!

This is just beautiful.

I am going to cave in and get this set. I wasn't going to, but too many people are making gorgeous cards with it.

Glad your mojo is on the way back!

Yes ... Sonia ... you are going to have to cave! I wouldn't be without it!!! It is one of the most versatile sets I have! Lynda ... hunny ... this is just stunning ... and I am so proud of you for using PINK!!! Glad you have found your mojo. But ... I do know exactly how you were feeling. Perhaps it was something we ate??? I have just done some stamping this week ... after a couple of weeks with no time ... and almost no desire! So glad you are back! Hugs xxAxx
