*A Long Break*

It sure seems like forever since I have posted something creative on my blog. I haven't been feeling nearly as creative in the last few weeks as I have in the past months so a card is slow to get out of my brain and in to reality. Of course, the week away at CHA kept me away from my craft table as well.

As much as I love having my laptop in my craft room for surfing and looking things up, it sure is a distraction when I am trying to craft.... reading emails, blog surfing, Facebook.... all distractions.

But I made the decision this afternoon to create a card if it killed me.... and it was painful... really... apparently I put my shoulder our while in California (I'm guessing it was lugging a wheeled tote for several days) so I am nursing a few aches and pains.

We all know how much I love the Mojo Monday sketches so I thought I would start there. I'm not disappointed with the card, but I'm not thrilled with it either.

I used images from Amuse and Unity (can't really see the Amuse in the photo but the blue and green are stamped with Versamark Dazzle Frost ink with an Amuse stamp). The colours are Whisper White, Basic Black, Taken With Teal and Green Galore. I got the colour combination from the ribbon I chose to use. The flowers are the white shimmer flowers from the wedding section at Michael's and I coloured them with my Stampin' Up Markers. I added a little bling to the centre of the flower (cuz I just love the bling!).

Thanks for popping by for a visit!!!
