A shabby attempt at stamping~!


AAACK, I've definitely fallen and I can't get up. I have NO mojo, no desire to stamp. What is WRONG with me? I used to be able to crank stuff out whether I wanted to stamp or NOT! These days, I run quickly past my stamping desk and try not to feel guilty for all of the mindless purchases I've made, and not focus on the piles of paper and stamps that are sitting there untouched! I don't want to stamp! My life has gotten crazy; full of summer projects and friend get-togethers, and *GASP* dates! Confession time. I've entered the dating world again. I can't believe I said that out loud.


Anyway, here's my pitiful attempt at trying to throw some cards together tonite. I need just about every type of card occasion now for my non-existent, dwindling work-stash, so birthday will have to do for this attempt. I used scraps of My Mind's eye polka dot papers, and some Bo-Bunny flowery Allissa-Twirls pattern. Bird stamp is Inkadinkadoo from Michaels. I discovered that the fun Pink Persimmon flower greetings stamps are great to use as sentiments! So I stamped, at least! PROGRESS!
May your mojo be plentiful today, everyone!

Hey LZ...I adore your cards! The soft colors and fun blending of patterns are fabulous! It appears to me the mojo never left...just got put on the back burner.

I'm happy to hear you are back in the dating world. Why don't you come to retreat so we can hear more about it! ;)

Hey, they look pretty good to me. The way I do it is just refuse to look at your desk, just close the door, or throw a sheet over it. And do other stuff, then when you want to , just pull of the sheet, and sit down, and out it will come! Don't be so demanding of yourself! Good luck!

I love these cards! You always have a way with putting the pattern papers together so they look great. Is the mojo just feeling something else?:)

Excuse me ....
I'm looking for a pitiful attempt, but methinks it must be on another blog? It certainly is not here! Fabulous news with your delightful cards!

I haven't stop by for a while, and now you're saying there's no mojo? Well, I think these are beautiful! I love the flower sentiments to go with the bird's flower trail.
