Always be a Unicorn, take two

A friend of mine saw THIS card that I made and asked if I could make one like it in pink for her to give to a friend. Normally I would probably say no because making cards for requests stresses me out but I said yes so that maybe it would help me keep crafting. 

Since pink is my favorite color I really love how this one came out!!

Have a happy day!

Always Be a Unicorn

Several friends of mine are doing the 100 Day Project. One friend is watercoloring each day for 100 days, another is stamping/coloring for 100 days and so on. I know I can't commit to 100 days right now but I thought I'd use a list that a friend shared to jumpstart my creativity.

This list is for scrapbookers in a group (I believe) called Scrapbooking is My Super Power. I just thought it was a fun list and it's different prompts than what my go to stamping themes are so I thought I'd use it for stamping. I found the list on Facebook on Shimelle's page.

The challenge started on April 1st but I'm just going to go through it as I can, mainly to see if it helps to get me creative! I'm not sure I have everything on the list either but we'll find out!

Day 1 is Unicorns! One thing I discovered, I need more unicorns in my life!! I decided the set from The Greeting Farm~ Be a Unicorn was perfect for this prompt!

It's a simple card but it at least got me crafty! Now hopefully I can keep the creativity rolling!!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges~
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!! Have a happy day!

Trying to find my mojo...and energy!

Things have been quiet here on the ol' blog. I don't know if I've updated here or not but I did get to get out of the boot last Monday so now I'm fully weight bearing on my ankle. 

It has been a very interesting week to learn to walk again, deal with swelling and deal with lots of pain and at the end of the day, no energy.

I know it's a process and as time goes by I will get "back to normal" or my new normal but for now, I'm just taking it one day at a time.

For those of you not on Facebook, here's a pretty picture of my hardware in my ankle. 7 screws, a metal plate and what they call a tightrope to help my ligament.

Sadly my crafty mojo has taken a hit with all this process. I am trying to find it but until it's totally back I have decided to step down from the Little Miss Muffet Stamps design team. I so appreciate the kindness that Barbara and the team has shown me and am hopeful to maybe rejoin the team later in the year.

Thanks for stopping by and I'm going to try my best to get crafty today so hopefully I'll be back real soon. Have a happy day!

Sorry to be so absent lately but for whatever reason, I have just been wiped  out. I have been on the couch most nights with my ankle elevated and "resting my eyes" instead of crafting. I'm really hoping to find some energy and get back into a routine soon.

Today I have a card that features an adorable image from Tiddly Inks called Nice 2 C U. So fun! I die cut the "hello" 3 times in Basic Black and 1 time in Wisteria Wonder and then layered them to give it some dimension. I was excited to use this die as a friend entered herself and me into an Instragram give-away and we won!! We each received 3 dies from Stamp Anniething! So cool!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a happy day and I hope be back very soon with more creations!

Enjoy Today

I had fun with this card and decided to try another version of it. I really do love how easy the Oxide Distress Inks blend! They are so fun, I hope to use them more!

I found this cute little Wild Sprout Amber in my digi folder already printed out so I decided to color her up for this card. She turned out pretty cute with her colorful hair!

Have a super fabulous day!
