Magic Wand....

Hi guys! I SO wish I had a magic wand to get me out of this little creative and overall funk. It took me ALL dang day to make this card. Ok, so I stopped for a while to take Ava to Hollister, but other than that..ok, and did some laundry..but other than THOSE things (lol), I have been trying to create ONE card that I was happy with. If you're a facebook friend of mine, you'll remember that my plan today was to get out of this and create one card. Well, I suppose I met that goal. It was hard, though! Normally I post everyday, but I haven't done anything since Tuesday..ugh, this stinks! :(

Anyhow, you didn't come here to be Dr. Banner to my Fifty (um, never mind..it's a piece of fanfic..lol), so on with the card! I used this weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch




and the colors are from the Cupcake's Creations Color Challenge.





This is my first time playing along with the Cupcake Creations challenges..I really like this weeks colors, don't you? There is still another week to play on this one, so head over there and check it out.

Ok, so here is my card:



I used my new My Favorite Things Rolled Flower die with my Papertrey felt..it was heavenly to quickly diecut and roll up that little ditty...really cute, eh? Gosh, actually I used a few different brands this week. The background stamped image is by Skipping Stones..the sentiment is Papertrey..the little squigglies under and over the sentiment are Waltzingmouse! Neat..

WEll, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you're in the States and a great weekend overall whether you are or not. I really miss stamping, but i'm just not sure HOW to get back into the swing of things. For those interested, i've talked to hubby a few times since he has been gone and we've Facetimed which is so cool! :)


OK, well that's it from me today. Hopefully, i'll be back tomorrow! (Cross your fingers on that one) Laters!



Stamps: Timeless Textures (skipping stones); Inside Out: Holidays (papertrey); Holiday Labels 14 (waltzingmouse)
Card Stock: Kraft (papertrey); Early Espresso (stampin up)
Ink: Versamark, Chocolate Chip (stampin up)

The card is beautiful. The colors and sentiment are very classy. And the felt flower is great. I would love to try that.

Keva.....Your card is beautiful, as always. You're getting that mojo back, it's just going to take some time. I've been wanting that MFT die forever.....I guess I'm going to have to break down and get it....now that I can see how it works with felt. Just awesome. I also just placed my very first Skipping Stones order last week......Hmmmmmm......I swear, I'm not stalking you....lol
