Feeling A Little Rusty

It's been almost two weeks since I've made any cards or posted anything to my blog. I spent the week before vacation organzing my photos and papers to catch up on two years of scrapbooking for my kids. I worked on the scrapbooks all last week on vacation and am pretty happy with the results. I do need to go add some "somethings" to several pages and make sure I've got dates correct for certain events but for the most part, I feel like my scrapbooks are caught up (for now!) So...it's time to get back to cardmaking. It felt good to anticipate making cards yesterday. I summed up my challenges, printed a couple of images and looked forward to crafting. Until I got to my craft table and felt out of sorts and awkward! My mind was blank, I felt like my tools were all in the wrong places (they weren't), I couldn't remember what markers I liked to use for certain colors. UGH! Here's what I came up with, hopefully things will go better today:
Photobucket
Challenges:
Rosie and Dee-all creatures great and small
Crazy challenge-birthdays
Crazy 4 Challenges-photo inspiration
Just Cute Bears-clean and simple with a bear
All sorts-something for a baby or child

  4. Lori-
    I hate that feeling! Except I dont realise that I have it until I am finished with a card and look at it and say, "yuck, where has my mojo gone?"

    I think your card is really cute. I love how you tilted one of the squares from the sketch! I really like how you added the buttons too! I had a difficult time with this card myself. My mojo and the sketch were not agreeing!

    Thanks for playing along with the Critter Sketch Challenge blog again! See you again next week.
