It's been a few weeks now since I actually made a card. Or anything for that matter of fact. I came to the decision that I would relax and take a creative break over the holidays. However, I did spend the time reading through my library of arty, crafty books and magazines. And I made a good start on tidying my crafting area. Which means I've refuelled my mojo and now the itch to make something is harder to ignore.
So to keep my first card of the year simple, I opted to use a sketch from Mojo Monday & colours from the Play Date Cafe Challenge.
Not quite as shabby as I'd prefer but it's a good start. Once I'm in the swing of things again, I'll be bringing out the sewing machine and cutting up strips of lace. But for now, I've kept this fairly clean and simple.
The flower is another handmade one, where I took a thin strip of fabric, folded it in half along the length before make even snips into the folded edge. I rolled the strip into a coil, applied glue and it was good to go.
Hope everyone out there is easing into their own wonderful creative stride this week too.
