(Not Quite) Back in the Saddle


Wow! It's taking me a long time to get 'back in the saddle' with respect to card making. I was so busy before we left, making cards for scheduled posts while we were away, and now it's been over a week since I made a card! I find that making cards actually generates ideas for the next cards (and not making them makes it harder to get restarted), so when I sat down in my craft room this afternoon, I didn't even know where to begin. My house is too hot (a/c is on now!), too crowded (I can't wait for Tuesday!) and I've got a cold, so my head is too foggy. But enough whining.....

I am hoping for a bolt of inspiration soon - I bought a few new horsey images over the last couple of weeks - this one is from Starving Artistamps and the sentiment is from Inky Antics. Simply stamped and coloured (not even any Stickles!)

This will be a good 'get well' card for my sister to send to a friend when she needs it.

Fabulous image and sentiment and a great card you've made using them too. It won't take you long before you're making loads of wonderful cards again.

Cute card! Sweet image and so nice for your sis to have on hand. :)

My goodness, all those conditions would elicit whine from me, too! And lots of cheese and crackers! One thing to be thankful for, however, you certainly didn't lose your mojo as a result of everything! This card is perfection, especially for your sister to send out!!

Fabulous stamp! Great coloring too!

Now, if I could create like you do, I would take your 'slump' over my most creative day in a heart beat!
