Things have been crazy busy, hectic and stressful in my life for the last few weeks, since I got home from vacation. I haven't had the time to create as much as I'd like. My house needs tons of things done, but I decided that if I didn't get in some time at my craft table today, I wouldn't be a pleasant person to be around this week. It's a stress reliever for me to sit down and lose myself in coloring, putting together a card or layout, and just generally futzing around at my craft table. Unfortunately, I just didn't have any mojo at first. I just wasn't feeling much of anything as far as creativity and energy goes, but I finally forced myself to sit down and try.
When I get like that, it helps me to use challenge blogs to get the creativity flowing. This time, I tried the challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers to use lace and pearls with a Sweet Pea image. I chose one my newer stamps from Elaine Cox. Once I got started, I just kept wanting to throw more goodies at the card and the final result is this:
Again, a very heartfelt thank you to all of our soldiers, past and present, for their sacrifices, dedication, and heroic efforts!!!
