Mojoless with TECC62

Am I the only one who struggles to get back into stamping after being gone for so long? I don't know why it is but I haven't even touched a stamp in over 3 weeks and now that I can, I don't even know where to start. Anyway, Taylor's sketch for this week is what got me started. I checked the sketch, sat there and stared at my supplies for what seemed like forever, and then finally tried to get creative. I got my new Verve Stamps in the mail while I was away and wanted to use them and since this sketch has a circle for the main image, I used my adorable little Plain Jane stamp! For the colors I decided to use this pretty paper from My Mind's Eye and pull out some colors from it. Overall I feel like this card is pretty cute but it is definitely not my favorite. I feel like something is either missing, or placed wrong.

Make sure you stop by Taylor's blog to see today's sketch. Taylor is also starting the sneak peeks for her new release today and I know you won't want to miss them!

Before I go, I wanted to let you know that Nick and I had such a great time in the Dominican Republic. It was so wonderful to get away. God really moved through me while I was there! We were fully submerged into the culture down there and feel like it was such a rich experience! We stayed with an amazing family and really enjoyed getting to know them! I will try to post some pictures in the near future.

Steph you are too hard on yourself - there is NOTHING wrong with this card - it's adorable. That sentiment image is perfect for this sketch. :)

Glad you had a good trip!

Looks like you got back into the swing of things no problem...judging by your cute card! I know it can be tough when you've been away from your craft space.
Glad to hear your trip went well.

I think it's super cute, Steph! Sometimes it's hard for me to sit down and stamp even when I don't have half the stuff on my plate that you have during the past couple weeks! So I think you're doing great! Glad your trip went well!

This is a great card! I love the warm, spring colors! Makes me want to get out there and start planting some! :)

I totally understanding about getting back in the swing... I took a little over a week off, and it took a few cards before I finally felt like they were worth displaying. Just keep going, it'll come!
