Just chillin'

Good evening, 
What a lovely evening it is!
 
I made this card a while back for an order, she wanted something with a train on it & I didn't have anything suitable. So I just added the charm. She was happy with it though, so that's the main thing.
 
Really been struggling with craft this week, I have "dismissed" loads of stuff that I had started, But I feel that I am getting back on track. It's awful when you want to craft & nothing goes to plan.
 This one was actually taken apart & put back together at some point too. 
Even broke my favourite scissors in the process.
I was in two minds just to pack it all in & sell the lot LOL

 
 I have kept it quite simple for me.
I used:
Nestabilities ~ Classic and Scallop ovals & labels 16
Martha Stewart ~ Branch border punch
Leaf punch & Charm
 
Don't forget it ALLSORTS birthday blog hop on Sat.
 
Thanx for looking

BIG HUGZ

We all get like that now and then Fleur, but have a bit of time out and do something a bit different to ease you back in.
I find doing a page in my journal helps, cos I am just playing and using different stuff and experimenting, not always doing what i have to do!!
Please don't stop tho' cos then who's work would I have to look at and sigh!!
Your card is gorgeous, love that image, must use it myself now i have seen him again.

This is gorgeous Fleur, I love the soft colours, and that image is one of my favourites!

I hate when my crafty mojo disappears, it's sooo frustrating! And the more frustrated you get, the more everything just slips away, it's a vicious circle! This card certainly doesn't look like your mojo is missing - if I could make something like this at my very best I'd be happy ;)

Its funny you say that about selling the whole lot cause i went through exactly the same thing a few months ago, i couldnt get on with my crafting, nothing was going right and my mojo had upped and left!! and i actually said to myself, thats it, ive had enough, im gonna sell the lot!! and within 24hrs of thinking that my mojo came right back, and i think thats what's happened here cause i love this, sorry about your fav scissors hun, Hugs Vick xxxx
