Life got in my way and did not leave any time or mojo for card making the last couple months.
End of the school year was way too busy as usual.
Less than 24 hours after my last day of work I'm sick, with a fever.
It lasted 2 weeks and took another 2 weeks to get my energy back.
In the middle of all that, my DD Kim came home for a 2 week vacation.
She ended up taking care of me.
I'm not a very good patient!
Then my DD and good friend Patti J encouraged me to dig deep for the mojo.
Here it is!
The sad part about all of this is that I placed a couple orders with SU! from the new 2012-13 catalog and I didn't even 'play' with it till today. Love the new catalog and for this card I used the new Bright Blossoms stamp set and Summer Smooches DP. Oh, please notice that I made a matching envelope. I also ordered the new diagonal scoring plate, never used it till today and in less that 5 minutes (that includes reading the simple directions), I had made an envelope. Think of the money I can save! Also new to me, is the edgelits-Adorning Accents (and embossing folder to match). Check out the bottom portion of the front of the card. Everything went together very quickly and just following a few challenges made it even easier to dig up that lost mojo!
