Holiday Cheer! { Mojo #9 }

My mojo is back! :)

Well, let's hope it's back for awhile anyway. I haven't felt very creative this week. Do you ever feel like that? You sit down to stamp and create a card and nothing looks right? Usually, when this happens to me, I like to visit other blogs or websites for creative inspiration.

I truly appreciate all the super talent out there, such as Julee T at Poetic Artistry, who take the time to design card sketches for us.

For today's card, I've used Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch #9. With design in hand, all I had to do was select my patterned paper, stamp set and inks! Easy peasy!

Do you like this paper I've used? The colors are somewhat non-traditional Christmas colors, but very festive. All the paper and the chipboard circle embellishment are from a "Make It Possible" Holiday Wishes Christmas 2007 Mat Stax.

This is the first time I've used this stamp set. It's a Hero Arts ClearDesign set called "Laughter & Merriment". I've used Versafine Vintage Sepia ink for the sentiment and the little bird. Can you tell that I paper pieced his wings with the striped paper? And I colored him with a crimson red prismacolor pencil. The scalloped circle and the chipboard tag are attached with dimensionals.

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend!

It's hard for me to believe that you could lose your mojo. You always seem to perfect every card you make.

I love the soft colors of this card, but the stitching is what I'm particularly fond of! I especially like the broken stitches on the scalloped circle! very nice. Let's blame the time change for missing MoJo. I too felt "blah" all week.
