Lack of Mojo and a Sketch

I've been suffering from a lack of mojo the past couple of days. I've started quite a few cards and only finished a couple of them. Mostly I've just sat and stared at my desk. I'll pull out a piece of ribbon or a stamp set, then wait and hope for ideas to come. So far, not much luck.

This is one of the few cards I felt somewhat satisfied with. My layout is this week's CPS sketch.

Stamps: Best Yet (SU)
Paper: PTI white & dp

Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: felt flowers & ribbon (SU), pearls (Kaisercraft)

Well, I LOVE this card Ann...hope your feeling of mojo kicks in for you...

I hope your mojo comes back soon. I know what a downer that can be. I have learned that rather than forcing my creativity, when I'm not "feeling it" I just shut the door to my craft room and don't go in there until I'm armed with lots of ideas and have the urge to stamp again. Sometimes it's for just a day or two, sometimes it's for a week or more.

This is a really cute card so you must have some mojo left. I like the layout and the color combo.

I don't think your mojo is gone, it's still there judging by the card :)
Love the colours and the layout.
I've done the same thing: sitting for hours just to choose a paper!

Ann, you did really well under the circumstances. Love all the texture too :o)

Susan Raihala said...

Oh, I know how you feel! So frustrating. That's usually when I start cleaning like a madwoman, LOL! Then some magic happens and the mojo always returns.

This card is fab! What a great color combo (never would have thought of olive for this, but it soooo works!).

Ugh, the same thing happened to me too! I hate the missing mojo bug. This is really cute though, so I hope your mojo is on it's way back!
