Friends With Flair

Wow, I can't believe it's Friday already....where did this week go? I was worried because this was the kids first week back after spring break AND my hubby is gone for work so I was going it alone. I thought the early mornings might be hard to get back into but it was surprisingly easy. It's hard to believe summer is already almost here. I'm super excited for my flowers and garden though....especially all the tomatoes.....YUM!!
I really wanted to play with my new {Unity Stamps} this week so one day when I had about 15 minutes to spare I thought I would run down to my craft room....an HOUR AND A HALF LATER...this was all I had:
Looks like a 15 minute card right?!?! My mojo is all sorts of wonky here lately...time to get serious about crafting again...what do you do when your mojo takes a break???

I love it! I usually start going to challenge blogs, pick something that sparks my interest and sit with it in my craft room. Sometimes I just stare at it and other times I just play. I have learned if I force my mojo, it won't come. It sort of runs on it's own time line =) Sometimes I come up with the best sketches during this time. Good luck! It will come back, it always does! Happy Weekend!

This is such a sweet birthday card!! I love that image for it! If I lose my mojo, I just starting playing with product or stamps that really get me going... usually the mojo catches up to me then. New product is always fun to play with and often when I am shopping I am visualizing what I will do with it... then I just have to go home and play!! So go shopping!! :-)

My children also had spring break last week, and my husband will be home tomorrow from a 3 week business trip overseas! I can totally relate!

Cute card Maria! Love how you used the corner of the die cut paper for your card and the pink gingham is just perfect. When I'm in need of a mojo boast I do 2 things:
1. Clean and organize - I get inspired by the things I find in my stash
2. Shop, to fill up the spots made empty by organizing :)

super-sweet card Maria. I know what you mean about the mojo, when I lose mine I start surfing blogs for inspiration, as well as sketch sites. Having a LO always helps me out! :-)

I think this is super sweet!! I never have half the mojo you do to start with - but sketches always help get me going.

well, I love it! that postage border looks great.love the flower and fence image you used-like you said-great minds! ;) hope your mojo returns soon! I hate when mine disappears!

Jen said...

Hello? What? Maria...seriously, you don't lose your mojo!!! Your work is ALWAYS FABulous! I love the different patterns you used on this card...that's always a tough one for me. This card is adorable, and have you ever thought that maybe your mojo or creativity is just changing or going through a new phase? *smile* Have a fantastic weekend!
