Clearing the cobwebs....

Wow, life has taken its toll on my time here... This month has had some serious challenges and I think it caught up with me for sure.  I haven't had the energy to do anything in the craft room and when I tried, well.... let's just say it's been a struggle.  My mojo has definitely left the building, but I know that my crafting time will help ease the stresses of life.  So my goal for this weekend is to get back to it and turn out some new projects...

For now I wanted to share a quick and easy card I created for the latest Tiddly Inks Challenge - BFF.  

I used a rubber stamp from the set called Bloom Beautifully.  I added a simple sentiment, then used my watercolors to create the background and add a touch of color to the stamped image.  I finished off the simple look with a doodled border around the edge.  Simple for sure, but I like the whimsical look!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Sending you all the mojo I have! <3 (which is sort of ironic, because you're my mojo).

Hey Jodi - Glad you are back to creating kiddo! I know that is certainly the soothing salve for my stressed mind. I absolutely zone out and my artwork crowds out any thing else in my brain. Look forward to seeing more from you...
