Mojo Prison ...

You've all been there, right? You know the place I mean .... when you can't seem to think straight enough to get the creative juices flowing in a positive direction .... when everything you try to do seems to take WAY more effort than it should???

Well ... that's where I was visiting yesterday as I tried to make this card!! Dang!! I HATE it when that happens. I just could NOT seem to get to a happy place with this card for the LOOOOONNGGGEST time!! And once I finally got 'er done, not ONLY did I forget to attach the photo to my gallery post over on SCS (where I made this for CC290 - Always Artichoke, Blushing Bride and Marina Mist), but I hadn't even EDITED the darn photo after pulling it off of my camera!! My brain was OUT to LUNCH, baby! And it wasn't even 10:00 a.m.!! Some days are like that ...Smiley from millan.net

By the way ... I got the idea for the purdiful butterflies on this from my good friend (and fellow Control Freak) Dawn Olchefske. I thought the idea was BRILLIANT and KNEW I was gonna have to "borrow" it from her. Check out HER creations with it:

I will go to mojo prison with you, if you could inspire me to make such a beautiful card! The creative process is like that sometimes, but when you do get there ... creations like this one are made in heaven! I love it!

OOOHHHH--WENDYYYYYYY!

This is sooo beautiful. I really love your (more CAS?) cards. And, your more challenging cards, Tooo! I love the round part...it reminds me of the sun going down on the horizon,( or up) and the butterflies dancing out in the distance. I think this card is GORGEOUS!

I request permission to CASE this card...to the best of my ability...which I will probably be able to pull off 20% of it! lol

LOOOOOVE IT! (Do you remember JoAnne Woorley? I am speaking with her exhuberance and high pitched voice during this whole comment! Love to you, Darling! Ta! Ta!)

Thank you, my dear!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
