3 weeks into January...

...and I am only up to 2 cards- think I need to send out a search crew for my missing mojo as it just does not appear to be with me!  I am hoping it will again resurface and help me to create again soon.  In the meantime, here is a card I made for a special friend in a super rough patch on life's highway.  I used a Mariposa Stack Pack purchased with a Christmas Gift Card from Hobby Lobby.  This was my first pack of Mariposa Paper and I am surely hooked on it now! I just truly hope it brings a bit of a happy moment to my friend who is aching so much right now! *Hugs*

I am Alive Believe it or Not!

I have no excuse for my absence other than lacking creativity.  My mojo just went out the door and on vacation probably someplace much warmer, I just wish it had taken me with it, LOL  I do finally have something to share though.  This is a card I made for my niece (LOVES Winnie) for graduation.  She received notice of having passed her GED on Christmas Eve!  She's going through a rough spell at the moment so I thought a nice Congrats would help to perk her up a bit. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day! *Hugs*
