This past week has been painful in the card making department. I can't tell you how many hours I've spent staring at my stash, making half hearted attempts at projects and panicking that I'd never produce another card. My mojo has really been roughing me up! I was determined to produce something today though. I set myself the task of using the colours from this week's ColourQ challenge and making a mother's day card for the Simon Says Stamp challenge. Initially all I could think of when I looked at these colours was PTI's Rosie Posie. I stamped away with that set for ages before I gave up and decided to go really simple. Nothing amazing or groundbreaking about this card but I think it's pretty and I like it which is more than I can say for anything else I've come up with this week! The only thing I want to point out is the sentiment. It looks a bit blurry in the picture but it's actually stamped with two colours. I thought it looked too harsh stamped in Chocolate Chip so I stamped it again (but just off to the side) with Blushing Bride to soften it up a bit. I'm kind of diggin' the look...
I'm hoping that this card will help break the mojo freeze and that tomorrow will be a little more productive. Watch this space...
