Where is the mojo?

I think it's on the ship! LOL!
Everything was in little plastic bags, all the paper was cut up, the ribbon and embellishments supplied for us and all we had to do was stamp the image and color. A girl can get really used to that in a week.
My sister, Marlene is new to stamping and she was on the cruise with me. We really had quite a few laughs stamping together. The funny thing is, after a week of stamping and getting all our little "kits" she now thinks that all the projects come this way...well maybe not all the projects, but I know that she was on StampingBella's website searching for some "kits". You just have to laugh! Marlene, I love you! ...don't get mad at me, I'm not making fun of you! I think many of us would be very happy if everything came in a kit, for those days when the mojo just isn't there! and what a great idea that would be for companies to do. Make kits up for that beginner stamper...get them hooked. Once they are hooked they'll buy the store! lol

This card was made using a Flourishes set, Coffee with Friends and Inkadinkado Dot Flourishes. I love black and white together. I stamped the dotted Flourishes with SU White Craft Ink, sprinkled it with clear ep and heat embossed. I did the same with the coffee cup and the flourish inside the coffee cup. I matted the image, with black and white borders, added some sheer white ribbon and a charm, tied it all up in a bow...used my heat gun on the sheer ribbon to curl it up a little, if you do this be very careful, it will burn, shread and melt...ask me how I know! lol...
For starting with no mojo, I am actually very pleased with the end result.
Thanks for stopping in! Have a Happy Halloween! And have a great weekend.
Smiles :)

That is too funny! I am so bummed I didn't get to meet you on the cruise. I am glad though that I am not the only one with no motivation. The only cards I have made since the cruise were due to deadlines. So not feeling it. Maybe those wonderful card kits DID spoil us. Great card BTW.
