Ever have days where it just feels like your mojo has gone on a vacation without you? That's kinda how I feel with stamping today. I think probably partly because I'm kinda sorta a little bit obsessed with my current cross stitch project so that's all I want to work on, even though I have baby books to do and only 11 weeks until my friend's due date.
But I did get a few new stamps earlier this week.
Like everybody else, I'm totally in love with the dinosaurs in the new catalog and I had to get them even though I have an older dinosaur stamp set. I used a sketch and color challenge for this, and although I love the sketch and the color challenge, this card feels a little out of balance to me. I think it's too heavily weighted to the left; if the T-Rex was facing the other direction I think it would work better for me. Dangit.
Anyway, here's the fabby colors from The Color Throwdown:
I mixed two old In Colors with two new ones: Baja Breeze (still so sad it's retired!), Crisp Cantaloupe, Tip Top Taupe, and Cucumber Crush.
And here's the Mojo Monday sketch:
So I'm thinking about sending this card to my dad because he could use some encouragement right now, but I also don't want him to think I'm comparing him to a dinosaur. Hmm.
Ok, I'm off to work on some other to-dos on my list. Cheers, peeps!
