Happy weekend . . . I don’t want you to be alarmed or anything, BUT I actually made a card!  For me at this time . . . that’s a big deal!!!!!!

I’m sure all of you have been thinking that I’ve been busy with CHA top secret projects and quite frankly I should have been.  I haven’t been able to be.  I’ve received emails everyday about this project, that project and what I need to make.  I’ve had a problem though . . . NO MOJO!

I’ve been sitting at my work desk looking at the fabulous new product that has come through my front door and that’s as far as I have gotten.  The mind has been blank . . . nothing!  My sister always tells people that she hates me, because I can look at some tacky box, paper, etc., and come up with an idea immediately.  NOT NOW until last night!

I’ve been going through Pinterest and my Google reader daily looking for anything that would spark my creativity and every day I have come up empty.   Slump Ville!  Ready to hang it up type of slump  . . . thinking I need to make big changes type of slump . . . AND THEN

last night while cruising Pinterest I saw these awesome cards and went to look at the designers blog.  WHOA Nelly . . . is she ever talented!  ENCZA at ENCZOWO.

My card today is a CASE of one of hers, with me changing up the colors and using Spellbinders™ instead of ready-made flowers.  For the life of me I can’t find the card now on her blog.  I printed it off so I would have it on my desk, but crap now I can’t find it.  All I can say is  . . . please visit ENCZA’s blog . . . you will be totally overwhelmed and inspired by what you see!  WAIT I just found it . . . at THIS POST!

So anyway, here’s my card.


The paper used is My Mind’s Eye – Lost & Found Union.  The card size is based mainly on the size of the Curved Rectangles that I used.  The flower was made from Grand Peony Creations and the foliage was die cut from GrungePaper.  The seam binding was dyed with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  That little bit of black behind the flower is a flourish from Imaginarium Designs, that my friend Jane Tregenza sent me.

So I think I might have found something to spark my creative spirit finally.  I hope you enjoy the card and thanks for stopping by . . . I truly appreciate you visiting, sending emails and leaving comments . . . you guys are the ones keeping me going right now!

  14. Good Job, Sherry~~Glad you found some MoJo!! Plus, I like the card too!!

  15. Sherry – I know what you’re talking about – no mojo – and while some people go through the motions, the spark just isnt’ there. Mine was gone for at least a year, just now enjoying sitting at my table and playing with my ‘stuff’. This young lady is very creative…thank you for sharing her with us. I love your card – love the flower and colors…so playful. Your creativity is awesom!

  16. Beautiful Sherry – may your mojo return ten fold ….

  17. Gorgeous card! Love the flower! May your mojo return soon. Your blog is so AWESOME!

  18. Guess you’ve got it back and glad to see you again. This card is beautiful. Keep it up while you’re on a roll. Edna

  19. Sherry, this card is lovely and very inspiring. Mojo is linked with what is going on in our bodies. If you’re busy healing after being unwell, the mojo may take a little dip. But it comes back. Hope you have a wonderful healthy and happy 2012. WRE

  20. Wow Sherry, I know the feeling….I lost my mojo for about a week. Just sat and stared at a blue piece of card stock and a ribbon. (ok, so maybe during the week I did eat, and sleep, and maybe watch a little TV…oh, ya, and I played Words with friends)….but it did come back, just like yours and boy did yours come back! Welcome home! Love the card, love the flower and love seeing you back on your blog! Have a great week!

  21. I don’t know if you realize it or not, but you have quite a following! We all love just reading about your escapades and when you create it’s just delicious! Glad you are beginning to create again and hope that slippery MoJo doesn’t get out again. This is wonderful….your flowers always just speak to me. I’ll never tell what they say!

  22. Sure missed your cards. But…. your back and that is all that matters. This card is so great!!!! Looking forward to all the new ideas you will have.

  23. Hi, Sherry! So glad to see one of your beautiful creations! I think there’s a lot of “No-mojo-itis” going around right now. We probably all wore ourselves out during the holiday rush. And, if you are on medication for any kind of high blood pressure or heart issues, it can make you feel pretty blah. I think you kinda busted out with this card, though…fabulous, my dear! I love it!

  24. Gorgeous, love what you have done with that flower die!!! Cool flourish behind it too, glad to see you have your mojo back 🙂

  25. Glad to read that your creative side simply took a short break and you’re now back on track.

  26. Gorgeous Sherry!!! Don’t beat yourself up about the mojo, it may be hiding but for you, I can’t imagine it wouldn’t come storming back! You are awesome and your body may be telling you to take a little break.

  27. Go girl, you’ve got it back!

  28. Sherry, I want you to know your blog is one of the few sites I visit on a regular bases. I’m a 57 yr old cardmaker who strays to nic-nac decor. I have “played” with paper, fabric and ribbons as far back as I can remember. (Sear’s catolog paper dolls, match box furniture) I had grandmother’s: one specialized in sewing and cooking and one who specialized in story telling and making beauiful flowers, snowflakes, paper dolls,and furniture from paper, cardboard boxes (cereal, match boxes and such).
    I love to visit your blog to see all the creative ideas you come up with….it sparks memories, ideas as well as my mojo.
    Thank you so very much for sharing your creativity.

  29. Sherry, I’m glad it was ‘no mojo’, and not health issues keeping you from posting. Been missing you, but understand that life gets in the way, and sometimes you just don’t ‘feel like doing it’. Thanks for the pretty card, and hope you are feeling ok.

  30. Wow! Sherry, this is so beautiful!
