Winter Chills

Hi folks! I'm back, although I'm still not feeling well or have much in the way of inspiration... the mojo is still proving elusive, and I have NO motivation... HELP! Despite this I have DT commitments, so I am trying my hardest to get back into the swing of things!
So, we have a brand new challenge over at Di's Digi Designs Challenge blog for you, and the weather we're having is just the perfect inspiration for this fortnight's "WINTER" challenge. All you have to do is create a Winter inspired project, a great opportunity for you to get a headstart on your Christmas cards! I say "All you have to do"... but I struggled, nothing seemed to 'fit' with my card.

I've used this really cute digi stamp called Guiding Light from Di's Digi Downloads. You should pop by Di's online shop, she has just the cutest digital stamps ever! Despite really struggling with the old mojo, I enjoyed colouring this cute teddy! We are kindly sponsored by The Cutting Cafe, and also Di will be giving away some digi stamps from Di's Digi Downloads, for the winner who used one of her designs. Pop over to the challenge blog to see all the fabulous DT inspiration, and more details about the prizes!

Thanks for putting up with me, I just wish I could shake myself out of it. Maybe a little purchase is need ;)

Hi Shelly, I really feel for you. When I was in the same position with DT cards and classes to do, I found the best thing was just to play with a few items, not related to a specific card. I found it hard if the stamp was not one I would buy, so I would play with my favourite stamps. Don't beat yourself up,as it is not easy to be creative to order! Big hugs, Carol S.xx

Ahhh Shelly, you sound so fed up and I'm sending you lots of get better hugs...chin up kid! We all need a little time out on occasions, we're not robots and crafting should be fun and enjoyable. On the plus side, your card is gorgeous and you have done a smashing job colouring these cuties in, maybe your mojo is closer than you think :) Donna ♥ x

Hi dear Shelly, I know what you are talking about.... Have the same feelings, I manage to do somethimes only 1 card in a month, had to bail out of my DT duties...
Don't know what to tell you.
But, your card is AWESOME! I don't know how you did it, but, it is pure magic!!!
I wish you to find your inspiration soon, and just feel like your old self again.
