*Hoping Today Is For Crafting*

I have been feeling like crafting for days, but just not feeling the creativity.  I've put together a couple of cards in the last few days, but once I get one card done, my creative vibe seems to be gone.  It's just not fair.

I am really hoping to be creative today.  I have nothing else on my agenda that needs to be done other than working on the laundry, so it should be possible.

Please send some positive creativity vibes my way!!


This is the card I created for the current Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge (#18).  I started out using a flower stamp to create the design around the edges but I kept messing it up (messed it up four times before I gave up).  I then decided to play with some punched circles and it seemed to work not too bad.

The only part of the card I am not thrilled with is the size of the image on the front panel...  too much white space I think.  I think that I should have found something or created something that was longer on that white panel.  Oh well....  it's not that it's bad, just not right.

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango
*Image:  Inkadinkadoo Fancy That
*Ink:  VersaMagic Onyx Black
*Tools:  Stampin' Up! 1/2" Circle Punch
*Embellishments:  Stampin' Up! ribbon
*Challenges:  Tuesday Morning Sketches #18

Maybe a little busy, but I like it.

That happens to me a lot too. I feel like making something but when I get to my craft room, all the ideas run out of my head. Or the ideas I do have don't work out. Either way, I feel a big let down. When that happens, I usually shut the door to my room and force myself to take a day or two off. By then I have tons of ideas and they all work like I want them to. Ok... well at least most of the time.

I like the border of circle punches. Great colors.

I think it's beautiful - clean and simple. Not too much white space at all. Love the colors, too.

Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I love all the circles and the colors are great. When I am not feeling my most creative, I try to find some good challenges.
