A Quickie

Happy Tuesday! I don't know about you, but I've been on a mojo-less streak now since Friday and I'm trying to get myself inspired to craft again! The card I shared yesterday was something I made early last week when the mojo was still flowing. For the last few days I've just been doing other things--like my other hobby: Reading! I read 2 books on Friday, 1 book on Saturday, THREE! books on Sunday, two books yesterday and two books today! That's TEN books in the last 4 days! And before you question the books I was reading, every one of them had at least 200 pages and were from several genres including Young Adult Lit, Inspirational Fiction, historical romance and then Nicholas Sparks! Did I mention I'm a SUPER fast reader?? LOL! Anyways, I wanted to do some pleasure reading before having to put it away in place of all my assigned reading I know I will have starting this Thursday when I start my fall semester at the University! Homework will rob me of my "free" time!

But I do have one thing to share today. This is the last card I made before I lost my mojo on Friday. The green paper, ribbon, spiral clips and image all came from a card kit swap I participated in. At first I didn't think I was going to be able to make anything from the card kit...the colors just weren't making sense in my own head...but I kept coming back to this image...once I paired it with the green and then the ribbon, it came together fast. I enjoyed doing some distressing on the patterned paper using my edge distresser and ink. I love the image, don't you? I colored it with my BIC markers and then used Colorbox Fluid Chalk Cateyes for the grass and sky (using a fingertip dauber) then added the sun with my regular chalks. All in all, this turned out to be much cuter then I thought it was going to be!

Card Details
Image, ribbon, patterened paper and spiral clips from a RAK
Paper: CS-chocolate Chip (SU) and Orange (from stash)
Ink: "Ice Blue", "French Blue", "Olive Green" (Colorbox Fluid Chalk Cateyes); chalks (Peebles)
Accessories & Tools: paper piercer, dimensionals, edge distresser, fingertip daubers

I'm trying to get motivated today as I have several cards I need to put together this week. I think if I can get at least one done it will jumpstart my mojo for the rest...so wish me luck!
