Enjoy!

So my mojo has taken another vaca! I have sat down several times over the last few days and I just stare...seems like I am doing that more lately! Burn out? I sure hope not! BUT, I did come up with this the s'morning! Nice and clean and simple! Maybe I should stick to CAS until my mojo shows up!

I pulled out this embossing folder that I haven't used in FOREV-A! So glad I did!

Seriously, after I finally had it planned out in my head (I *see* all my cards in my head before I make them!) this card took 5 seconds! Well....maybe a couple minutes! hehe!

Thanks for coming by today! I was super bummed to not play along with the PTI hop! Other than having no mojo, I really have had NO time! I am working on several events for church and school and keeping up with kids too! I know I am way behind on my blog commenting too!  Oh and we made a new rule...NO computer on Sundays! I came up with the rule so I figured I better abide by it! (We will see how long that lasts!)

Better get going...my 2 year old just handed me my entire role of Scotch foam tape in a large, unrolled mess...omg. bye.



Supplies

  5. I love this!! The white embossing is gorgeous and I love the creative way you used it with blocks. I know what you mean about mojo, Laurie! Mine is still on vacation too. I also "see" cards in my head before I make them too. If I try to craft at the table without an idea, I just kind of sit there, lol. Love your work! :)

  7. I try to see my cards in my head first, also. Usually, though, they look nothing like I want them to look when I am done..lol. Oh well.

    I relly like this card. The impression on the small squares is really nice and I love the pop of color with the flowers. Really nice.

  10. Great card, Laurie! I always admire your work. I definitely know what you mean about not having enough "time" for crafty projects. LoL... I always seem to have the same problem! But I guess we all do, in a way. (Sigh)

  16. I feel ya - my mojo has been gone for quite some time, though I found a bit of hit hiding behind some stamps today. ;)
    Gorgeous card! I love how well those roses stand out! Lucky you can plan in your head - my head (and desk) are way too cluttered for that! ;)

  22. 1. LOVE your new blog header.
    2. An entire roll of tape? UNROLLED? OMG...
    3. Your card is lovely, and you have LOTS of mojo apparently.
    4. I am with ya on the "not enough time" factor for sure.
    5. Sometimes what I see in my head doesn't work so I go with what my hands create when my mind doesn't get in the way.
    6. No computer on Sundays? What kind of horrible rule is that? *smile*
