KWerner Color Inspiration and Trying to Find my Mojo

It's another week for KWerner's Color Inspiration. I combined the colors with the SCS sketch challenge. These week's colors were Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery, Really Rust and Whisper White. The White was hard for me to use because I would have actually gone with Vanilla personally.
I used a coffee filter, colored with marker and then spritzed with water and allowed to dry for the background behind the "Thinking of you" and also on the right had side of the card. I stamped the dragonfly from the Measure of a Life set and used my blender pens and stampin pastels to fill it in. I hope you all like it.
Just a quick note about comments. I, like most bloggers both welcome and enjoy comments for the things that I post. If there wasn't a comment section, would we even bother blogging?! It's never expected or required, obviously. I'm always grateful for anyone that just stops by. However, I do want to let you all know that if you leave a comment, I always make a point to visit your blog and return the favor.
So, I've been feeling a bit blah today. Have you ever had those kinds of days? I wasn't really in the mood to stamp today. So I decided to make a list of some SU stuff I wanted as well as other stamps I want from Hannah and Lizzie etc. Well, that was a big mistake. With gas at $4.00 a gallon and milk even more expensive than that, who can afford stamps?? I was also having a bit of a pity party for myself because I entered some stuff into contests and challenges and I just never seem to win anything. Oh, I know I'm not the only one and it shouldn't bother me. Normally it doesn't. Like I said, just one of those days.
I think a non-stamping, non-blogging, non-challenge chasing and perhaps even a non-pc long weekend will help rejuvinate my spirits a bit and help me find my mojo a bit.
So, with that I'm off for the weekend until Tuesday. I do want to thank all of you who come to visit with me regularly and I do promise to be in a much happier place when I return again.
