How much is the Mojo in the window.....

......the one with the beautiful cards???  How much is that mojo in the window.....i sure hope that mojo's FOR SALE!!!!

maybe i should put my mojo up for sale????

This happens to me everytime i make huge Stampin' Up! purchases.......I lose my mojo!  I get my new stuff and just pine over it......picking it up.....moving it around......just loving every bit of it......but not creating with it!  New stuff usually gets mojo going....not me....I go into stand still mode...like I don't want to get it dirty or use it up.  HELLO!!!!!  The consumables can be replaced!!  What is up with me??  Maybe i have  too much to think about......who knows???  I do know that my daughter's fifth birthday party is this weekend and I have scaled things back.....big time!!  So, that is on my mind....worrying that I am not doing enough.  Not cooking enough......not making enough....not creating enough.....  I just need to take a big nap until Friday - whenI beging to bake the cakes.....yes, cakeS.  lol!!!

Enough whining, huh?  lol!  I went to check today's color challenge....that would get me going right???  Well, it is regal rose, old olive, and peach parfait.  Hmmm........So - flowers were in order, right??  well- here is what I came up with:

Please don't throw stones at me.......now that I see it - I am going to remove the flower in the upper right hand corner.  So how does it look now????  Ahhhhh....much better!

The card base is old olive and i embossed it with the new elegant lines embossing folder and my big shot.  ooooo....pretty.......  The ribbon is the peach pizzazz 1/2 inch stitched poly ribbon.  {luv} that!  The sentiment panel is die cut with the matchbox XL die and stamped with the sentiment from In a Word from the Summer Mini.  It was inked up with stampin' write markers.  The background die is also from the matchbox die.  I cut it in regal rose and sponged it with old olive.  The flowers are from Growing Green.  I used the color flood technique on them.  The roses are regal rose and the small flower are peach parfait.

I will show them closer to you - even though they are coming off of the card!

The small flower centers are from the brand new adhesive backed pearls!!!!  Thank goodness we now have these!!!!

Well.....I would love to get some feedback from you - leave me a comment below to help me get my mojo back :)

I so get what you mean about losing your mojo after a huge order. I am the same way. You can't wait for it to show up and when it finally does you don't know what to do with it.
I love the card you came up with there is so much amazing detail involved. :-)
