Well... I did it. I finally made a card. It was late for our Paper Players challenge - but I finally cut some paper, inked up some stamps and colored an image! It's the first card I have made in over a month. I generally try to get my challenge cards made well in advance, but I didn't quite get them all finished for the rest of the year before my mojo went south.
It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a sketch for us:
Now, this sketch was a challenge for me, especially on low mojo. But... and you have heard me say this before... the good thing about challenges is that they do just that. Challenging our creative juices and using things in different ways is really good for us - and this challenge did exactly that. I needed to concentrate very hard on the elements here and couldn't work out what stamp to use. Then I remembered that I received a new Gerda Steiner stamp set called Christmas Kitties. It's adorable! I knew that one of the central images was just perfect for this challenge.
I colored the image fairly simply and added a little shimmer and shine to the baubles. Now... what does kitties and baubles say to you???? Yep...... exactly!
Well I know that is exactly what would happen in our house if we had a Christmas tree with baubles on it! :-)
Here's my card:
I hope you will join us this week and play along with Joanne's sketch. If you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than our fabulous design team:
I am off back to my craft room to see if I can make any other cards! If I can, I will be back later in the week. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
