Missing Mojo ~

Hey there!  It’s been a little quiet over here as I cannot seem to find my mojo.  I have so many ideas in my head, but even when I carve out enough time to play in my crafty space, I just can’t seem to make anything.  It’s frustrating!  I kind of feel like walking away from it all for a little while.  ???  Don’t know what’s up with that! 

With that said, I forced myself to make a card today.  I also forced myself to pick up my Copics…I haven’t touched them in a couple weeks!  I chose this weeks Mojo Monday sketch – #214.  I love the Mojo Monday sketches!  Hell, I just love sketches period. 

mojo monday 214I also made myself use some paper that I had to order – PTI’s Funky Town.  That gorgeous flower is from Verve’s One Person set and the sentiment is from Thankful Blossoms {an oldie but a goodie!}  I love the boldness of the font.  It’s stamped in Versafine Onyx and clear embossed then sponged with Worn Lipstick distress ink.  Here’s a little close up of the flower. 

mm 214It’s embossed as well and fussy cut.  The interesting thing is that the Copic ink kind of dissolves the embossing, so the colors blended strangely…almost like coloring with melted crayons.  Oh well!  I was too lazy to do it again!  lol

Thanks so much for stopping by!  We stopped and got a couple bushels of fire roasted green chilies, so I need to go de-seed and peel them before popping them in the freezer.  Have a great rest of your weekend!  Smilelyss

OMG. I sketched out a card idea a few days ago that that has similar elements and I planned on using that polka dot paper. I'm still gonna make it but I know it won't be half as beautiful as your card and I'm totally cool with that. :) Good grief this is gorgeous!
I totally feel like I need to step away from the craft table for awhile. My mojo is lacking and I'm forcing it and it's not going so well. I've got to e-mail you and tell you about me losing my sh*t on a frozen turkey. LOL
