So…. it was only 8 1/2 hours until we started our monthly team meeting, where we are swapping cards made with our favourite stamp set. And I was stuck! Until 1.30am this morning, I was freakin’ out, wondering if I could fake Swine Flu and get out of the swap for another day.. then I spied the Mojo Monday sketch challenge – THANK YOU!! I used the image that I had already stamped seven times (ok, so more than 7, as I had to ditch quite a few due to the state I was in trying to stamp in a hurry!) and added some more layering, and my card turned from “ho-hum” to “whew! I’ve done it”! Sometimes we all get “stampers’ block”, and need a little kick start. I find a challenge sketch or colour challenge often is just what I need.

I hope your day has been a good one. I’m off to prepare for our children’s holiday class – tomorrow! WHY do I leave everything until the night before?? I will do better… soon!
