Summertime Blues

Hi all, I made a card yesterday while it was raining cats and dogs, I felt I needed to add a bit of sunshine to the day so I got out one of my uninked Tilda's and came up with this.
I stamped Tilda twice I punched out the first image then coloured the second one, cut her out with scissors and 3'd her with silicone glue to the circle, I used both promarkers and Copics to colour her.  The circle frame is from Marianne Craftables, the papers are from Bearly mine designs (link in my side bar).  I mounted all papers onto gold linen textured mirri card, I followed the sketch from this weeks Charisma Cardz challenge but made it into a stepper card, I added a butterfly, ribbon, bow, buttons, flowers and gems.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Well that's it from me today I hope that you like my card, I feel as if I have lost not only my mojo but motivation for crafting at the moment, I don't feel that my work is up to standard but I do keep trying.
I will be around to see you later until have a lovely day.

brenda said...

Please don't feel like that Lorraine as this card is just beautiful.

Although I know exactly what you mean, I've felt much the same the last few weeks, nothing ever turns out like I wanted.

And this weather doesn't help any of us, I'm feeling the whole Country is getting totally fed up with it.

I hope you can have a good weekend and look at craft afresh on Monday.

Ohh this is so pretty! I just love the beautiful details and die cuts and that Tilda looks gorgeous. Hope the weather is a bit nicer for you today :)

Jac said...

Gorgeous card Lorraine, sorry to hear you are feeling like that but personally I'd say your mojo is doing just fine it's this darned weather that's the problem, we could all do with some sunshine, Ria and I were supposed to be going shopping for fabric but never made it due to floods all around us! Thankfully we live half way up a decent sized hill! Take care and keep creating xx

Cheryl said...

oh Hun,this is just gorgeous,the detail is just fantastic, loving the papers,and those amazing embellishments,stunning Hun know how you feel sweetie as I am feeling like this too hugs Cherylxxxx

Riet said...

Laine said...

Oh Lorraine, This is a beautiful card and Tilda is so lovely and coloured so well. I often sit and think what am I going to make, where is my inspiration and at other times so many ideas I feel I will explode. Your work is lovely. Please ride out the low time. I felt like this after Christmas time and could find little enthusiasm. Your Mojo will return.
I love to come and look at your cards.

Doreen said...

A gorgeous card. I love the shape and the colours are wonderful.
I'm sorry you are feeling this way at the moment (and from what I see, your mojo is there), but I know what you mean as I have so much crafting to do but no ideas or inclination to do it. Hopefully that will pass soon.

How can you say you have no mojo and produce a card as gorgeous as this one!! The colours and layout look great and you've coloured Tilda perfectly. I think we're all feeling a bit flat with this bad weather - we need sunshine!!
Your work is gorgeous - don't be hard on yourself! :-)

Linda said...

OH my goodness your card is so lovely. So glad you inked this Tilda. She is adorable. I love the way you colored her and your cutting is amazing. Which do you like better Copic or Promarkers? Do they color the same or is it different.
Wonderful layered card. Very very pretty!

Stef H (Glitterbabe) said...

well the weather certainly didn't put a damper on your creativity! this is gorgeous! we have such awful heat and under drought conditions. yikes. even with the air on and all my fans going, it gets to almost 90 inside. it's over 100 outside! who needs to move to a warmer climate?????

hugs :)

Jules said...

Hi Lorraine

Well smack your legs!!!

What are you like?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with your work at all .. .. it is as beautiful and neat as always.

I think it is our lack of sunshine that has a lot to answer for. We aren't getting our much needed doses of vitamin D!!

I love the colours and shape of this card and those flowers are gorgeous.

I hope you feel happier about things soon.

Take care.

Love Jules xx
