Sharing a Card!

Hi everyone!

If you're looking for my giveaway post, you can find it here.

It's been a long time since I've shared a card here on my blog. Not because I haven't been creating - I have. It's just that lately I haven't liked anything I've done. Do ya ever have those times? Lost mojo, not feeling it, nothing's working - whatever you want to call it, it just happens once in awhile, to most of us.

Anyway, I finally finished a card that I like and wanted to share it with you. I used some favorite goodies from Simon Says Stamp, including their inks.



I love this stencil set from Simon Says Stamp! It's called, Building Hearts and it's so fun to play with! The background was created using their, Tiny Spaced Hearts stencil, with Doll Pink and Coral Reef inks.

I also used Simon's Sending die along with a sentiment from their Favorite Flowers stamp set.

This card would be perfect for the new Flickr challenge over in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr group! It's a love theme challenge and I hope you head over and play along for your chance to win one of two $25.00 gift cards!

Thanks for stopping by! I'm rushing this morning - off to work. It's my last day before a nine-day vacation! I'm really looking forward to the time off! Not traveling anywhere, just relaxing at home and hoping for some more creativity!

Happy weekend! ♥

This is so pretty!! I LOVE the colors you used and the way you shaded them. I so know what you mean about making things you just "don't love." My mojo comes and goes and sometimes it goes for a LONNNGGGG time. That is when I get to browse other people's blogs for inspiration!!
