Getting my Mojo back

I made it through the ENTIRE week last week without making a single card. It certainly wasn't for lack of desire to make a card, or lack of inspiration. I actually had quite a few challenges that I fully intended to do last week. I even went so far as to choose inks, stamps and papers for a few cards. Somehow, time managed to get away from me and the next thing I know it is Tuesday, and all of last week's challenges went unfulfilled. So, even though I should have been doing classwork (this week is the first week of my college algebra class), I decided to make a card.

This card was made following this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I used the CTMH Animal Cookies Creative Basics papers, Clover Meadow, Sunflower and Tulip cardstock, Tulip ink, and the new Thank You stamp set. Embellishments were Bella's Baubles (I have NO IDEA what the color is--I split a pack with a friend. It may be apricot jam from the Tutti Frutti bauble set) and stitched ribbon from my stash. Circle and scalloped circle were cut with Nestabilities, and the rectangles were mounted with 3-D Mounting Foam. When the Summer Idea Book came out, I wasn't a big fan of the Animal Cookies paper. After seeing it in person, especially the Creative Basics pack, I actually like those papers a lot.

Great card! I'd love to imitate it (personal use only, I swear!)!!

I learned in college that you can't cram for a math test. It's one of those subjects you have to do every single day. Get with it!

(I mean that in the nicest way)
