DCM Buttons

I'm feeling very pink at the moment, must be all the Heidi Swapp goodies I have. Shame they can't help my creative block! Its taken me two hours to make these two cards & I still don't like either of them very much.
Im going to have a lay on the sofa & read a novel. Forget about crafting for a full day & see if it comes back. I have 3 layout challenges I want to complete, but as yet none are speaking to me.
My sketches are not making it onto the craft table. I am however doing quite well with my teamies CJ & my entry is all but finished & I am chuffed with it. So a small victory!!
Papers are DCWV, Inspirations warm tones. Buttons papermania. Flowers Dunhelm & Scrapfairies They look like prima but they aren't & half the price!! Adore is from a jotter sheet, Heidi Swapp. Baby outfit from a friend, Cat.

Aww Paula, I know how you feel - its awful when you want to create and nothing seems right ... but both of these cards are gorgeous, so your doing something right ... :)

Enjoy relaxing with your book ... x

Anne said...

I like your cards, they're both very pretty! What does it matter how long they took when they come out so gorgeous in the end? Hope you feel better about things soon.

Very sweet! Not bad considering your mojo has flown... take the time to gather inspiration from other folk's blogs and I'm sure it will soon return x

Sometimes it is just plain smart to take a break. Don't force anything, wait till your crafting table is calling you so hard you can't ignore it!
Meanwhile, take naps, take it easy and enjoy!

Hermine said...

Debbie said...

I love both these cards Paula :-)

Sometimes a break does you good - I can looks at pieces of card and paper sometimes and I faff about and it all ends up in the bin. Other times I get on a roll - like this week because I have been off work :-)

Take care (((hugs)))))

Sympathies all round Paula - I lose my mojo all the time, and sometimes I just try something completely different that I wouldn't perhaps normally do to try and jump-start it again. You have heaps of talent and you'll get back in the mood once you've taken some of the pressure off yourself ;o) xx

Know exactly how you feel Paula, I've been struggling even since I got ill... without that mojo, crafting is all uphill...
