Good Morning friends! I'm going to tell you right off the bat - this color challenge was a real challenge! Kraft/Crumb Cake - that's not the problem. If you've been around this blog long, you know that I use a lot of Kraft cardstock. It's the Cherry Cobbler/Not Quite Navy combo that I really struggled with. I didn't want it to look too Patriotic. I didn't want a manly card. (although I could use some manly cards!) I perused my stamp sets, gazed thru my book of sketches. Finally, I settled on this clean and simple sketch (an oldy from Clean and Simple Stamping). It quite clean, quite simple. I don't know that I really am in love with it. I've seen better work come out of my craft room. However, the use of the Natural Elements DSP - I DO like that.
I'm still in search of my creative mojo - so if you've seen it, could you please give it back. I've been scouring Pinterest for some inspiration - even at 3am when I can't sleep. I think that lack of sleep is part of my mojo prob. I don't like to get up in the middle of the night, because then I just fall into that routine. I'm hoping when school starts back up here I'll be back into a good routine. It's frustrating for me to feel lack-luster and uncreative. VERY frustrating. I'm typically the type of person that doesn't sit and watch tv or just hang out - I've got to be doing something. Cooking, crafting, gardening....I'll put the laundry and cleaning off. But those other things I really like to do.....so to not feel really motivated to do those fun things is odd. I'll get there tho. Just a little funk I'm going thru. I tried a new coffee this morning and it's super yummy....maybe that will be the key. (FYI - the coffee is Cameron's Cinnamon Sugar Cookie. mmm. mmm. good!)
Now - go head out to see what the other crafty Paper Players came up with. There are some great creations out there!
