Getting Back Into The Challenge Mode

After a week of looking after hubby with his bad back I'm trying to get back into making my challenge cards. Finding my mojo can sometimes be difficult after a little break, but this time I am very pleased with the results.

While out of it for a while I did manage to sit and do some colouring and get a stash of images ready for cards so this really helped when it came to putting them together. I think I will do this again as that was probably the answer to the loss of my mojo sometimes, I wasn't starting from scratch.

Well here's what I came up with. Hope you like them.

Creams and dark brown cardstock
Papers from my stash
Beaded circles Spellbinders die
Creative Expressions floral embossing folder
Campervan from Stamposaurus Stamps
Boy image from the Polka Doodles Pretty Tuff CD
Happy stamp and buttons from my stash
ProMarkers to colour
Edged with Frayed Burlap distress inks

The inside of the card to match.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Willow Designs Sketchie Challenge
The Alphabet Challenge - Y is for you can choose
Polka Doodles - Week 2 Vintage/Retro
