Sorry, that's how I'm feeling about my creations at the moment - just blah!  Nothing especially wrong with this card, and nothing that great about it either... I'm just having an inspiration free week I think, mojo must have gone off for a holiday.

This card is for my auntie's little girl to give to her daddy - orders are the perfect excuse to buy images that I like, but that don't suit my own family (as we have 2 boys)... this one from Mo Manning is so sweet :o)

Items Used
Digi stamp - Father & Daughter - Mo Manning
Colouring - copics & prisma pencils
Papers - Bo Bunny Prairie Chic - MCH
Sentiment stamp - Stampin' Up
Word Window punch - Stampin' Up
Star punch - Hobbycraft

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Crazy 4 Challenges - Father's Day
Crafty Cardmakers - Father's Day
Creative Creations - For you dad/ masculine
Papertake Weekly - hello boys

Off for a little catch up with some of your blogs (not that I ever quite manage to catch up!)... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Hi Lisa, Your card is super gorgeous as always hun, with super colouring, which I adore... and I'm sorry to hear you're having a "blah!" weeks are sometimes "bleurgh!" or "yikes!" - you'll be fine again in no time at all, Big Hugs, Teresa xxx

I love the card and image! Hope you feel your mojo returns soon - although I can't see it's missing! x

I can assure you there's absolutely nothing wrong about this card. On the contrary, I really like the beautifully colored image and layout. But I often find myself judging my cards not by how they look, but how I felt making them - it's difficult to have an objective view of your own work. Hope you feel your mojo returning real soon:)

Long time no visit Lisa!

Gorgeous card. Love the backing papers, specially the thinner strip at the bottom of the image.

You have coloured the image beautifully! I had my eye on that too for my surrogate Granddaughters Daddy, but for next year as she's still too small this year to be walking.

A stunner, thanks for visiting us again.

Looks like a great card to me Lisa. Love that sweet image.

I've not been having Blogger issues just broadband issues so I've been getting a bit of knitting and crocheting done instead of blogging.
