Where is my Mojo??

I am having trouble diving back in to scrapbooking and cardmaking after the Christmas and wedding and driving to Phoenix hiatus.  It sure isn’t that I have lost interest…….I have just lost my mojo.  I went shopping at three different stores today and came back with next to nothing.  I had to buy some mats for my cutter because I forgot to bring them from home and I had to buy some staples for my Tiny Attacher, but not much else jumped out at me.  I thought I would jump start my mojo, by just selecting a challenge from my usual stamp companies and get after it.  Each challenge I looked at seemed to have a reason why I couldn’t complete it.   Either the medium that would be perfect for it was one that I didn’t bring with me to Arizona or the stamp I wanted to use was also still back home.   I couldn’t justify buying something here  when I already own it at home, so on to the next challenge.

Enough whining already,  I settled on the Wednesday Challenge from Simon Says Stamp.  They are featuring Hero Arts this week and the theme is Ombre.  Ok, I know I said no more whining, but I just have to mention that all my Hero Arts Ombre pads are sitting in my craft room in Canada……………just saying.  Anyway, I managed to make up an ombre background with my Hero Arts inks that I had left here in Phoenix.  I rediscovered a Hero Arts wooden stamp that I must have bought at a garage sale and a card was created.  I made an ombre image with the stamp as well by using three shades of Hero Arts grey ink.

This card is not a showstopper but hopefully is a catalyst to getting my mojo back.
