Making Up for Lost Time

Hi Everyone!

I have, once again, been a bit neglectful with my blog. I would have to say there are a variety of reasons for that. 1) The weather is warm and we are spending more time outside. 2) I have packed quite a bit of my stuff away already since we are moving next month to Texas. 3) The biggest reason of all, is probably that I just haven't had any mojo...nada...zip and no desire to do any stamping. Yep, it's true. I hit a big old stamping slump!!
This past weekend, the hubs was out of town and I found myself more in the mood to be creative. I think it had to do with the fact, I could spend more time in the evening working on things without feeling the rush to put it away. So, I actually did 4 cards this weekend, and I am sharing two of them today and I'll show the other ones over the next couple of days.
The first card is for the past week's SCS sketch challenge. I used Melon Mambo, Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette and White (The Mambo and the Suede were part of last week's color challenge)The felt and prima flowers in the corner are from a package of Buttons and Blossoms from Making Memories. It's all really self explanatory, so I'm going to move to the next card I have for you.
This is for Friday's OCL DT challenge from Our Craft Lounge. I used Pacific Point, Celery, Basic Grey and White for my color palette for this one. I stamped the Certainly Celery piece with the Hero Arts Circles Pattern cling stamp. I used the Top Note Die from SU for the white piece in the middle and then used Label 8 Nesties for the Grey and inner white piece. I cut another piece out in celery the same size as the white piece and then trimmed it and glued it around the edge. Say it Big was my OCL stamp set of choice for this week's challenge.
Ok, so that's all for me for now. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with some more things to share with you. Until then, have a great day!!

Great cards! Don't the cuttlebug embossing folders help when you've lost your mojo?
Good luck w/ the move - it's understandable that you haven't been posting much!!
