Whoooo knew...

 ... that I have been slacking lately?!  I'm still not feeling creative... this is the longest creative slump I've been in for some time.  And this is the last of my 'spare' cards that I haven't shared, so enjoy it :)  Who knows when the mojo will return.


I am LOVING the Tim Holtz edge dies... how fabulous is the shape of this card front?!  I totally see using this die for a future handbag card, right?  I still need to figure out a foolproof way of using the die so that it is straight when it goes through the Big Shot... I've had so many that I can only use as mats because they had to be cut down.  Any ideas?


Stamps:  Be Square, Thinking of You (retired hostess set)
Paper:  white ultrasmooth, kraft, brown & random teal cardstocks
Other:  metal button, Tim Holtz edge die
Copics:  0, BV20, E53, E57, BG72, BG78


I love this owl... he's my 2nd favorite in the whole set.  Those itty bitty wings totally make me smile.
:)
See?

And are you guys hating the simple cards I've been doing lately?  I have a room full of schtuff and all of these cards lately have been foof-less!  What is the trend now, anyway?   
Foof or NO Foof?

What do you think?

That is not a 'slumpy' card! Even in a slump, you manage to blow me away! Love this image, he has the cutest lil' wings, and the expression on his face is just priceless. Looks like HE has lost his mojo and is trying to figure out what to do next :) I think it's 50/50 right now - you can be foofy or foofless - your choice! Hugs!!!

Great card! Not sure how that die works, I don't have any. But how I hold my nesties down is a smidge of tape, that I put across my shirt first to keep from being too sticky on paper. Than I put it across the die, and the paper and run it thru. It keeps both in place for me, and since I put it across my shirt, it comes up easy too.

Love the coloring. I would never of thought of those colors. But of course if you but them together they work. Love the edge haven't seen those before.
