Trying to find my mojo...

Paper Pretties has a sketch challenge posted on their blog this week so in an effort to reclaim my mojo I decided to try it out.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card (I flipped the sketch to work with my image):Isn't Cuddle Me Sophia just adorable. My heart melts every time I see this image. I just ordered a couple more Sophia stamps yesterday and I can't wait for them to get here! Paper Pretties is having an awesome sale, check it out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are all having a great week!

Mojo on vacation!

You may have noticed that I haven't posted much lately. With the stress of Annabelle starting kindergarten and trying to get everything ready for that, my mojo seems to have jumped ship. I've tried stamping a couple times in the past few weeks and I just haven't been able to put anything together. I'll be leaving a trail of glitter in hopes that my mojo finds it and follows the way home ASAP. While we're waiting I have a card I made a while ago for one of the Paper Makeup Stamps Monday challenges.

Hope you all had a great day!


Have you seen the new Just Cards! Holidays! issue? I just got mine in the mail yesterday.
Recognize that bottom card? It's mine!!!! I can't tell you how excited I was to see my card on the cover of the magazine.

Here is the card: all stamps are from DRS Designs

I also have another card in this issue made with stamps from Firecracker Designs.
I hope you all have a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by!
