Other cards and cards-in-waiting were also successfully rescued over the last few days, thankfully, as I realize now that I was just, hopefully, having what I understand to be a normal reaction to what can happen from time to time when your mojo goes a bit AWOL and your mixing amongst other sublimely talented crafters. I am not saying my mojo is back, because it certainly doesn't feel like it is, but I am now just not focused on questioning if I ever had any mojo at all to begin with, which is what I think I have been most acutely grappling with over the last little while. Having come to this realization, I have decided that I will not craft for challenges this week or so until I get my confidence back a bit. Hopefully this will help some. So until then, I just thought I'd share with you a few of the rescued cards and a few other bits and bobs that I have made recently as I work on gently getting my confidence back a bit.
This is a Sweet 16 birthday card I made last week for my eldest daughter. The thought behind the playing cards was to try something a bit quirky, a weeny bit arty, and left of center...bit like my gorgeous now 16 year old, inner city skater girl who creates the most amazing street art, is totally funny as, so compassionate, and loves a hand or two of cards. Plus, I am sure she'd cringe if I gave her your typical "sweet as pie" birthday card in any case. Yes, she's my fabulous girl, but she's still a teenager after all. *wink* Enough said. Bless. As this card was binned, I did make another which she (politely) liked, but when she saw this one she was thrilled. Go figure?
Anyways...but most importantly, thank you so much for stopping by and for allowing me to share with you not only the joys, but some of the pitfalls along the way on my adventures in papercrafting. Hugs.
