These went into stacks I was working on for family members. I still LOVE this Lilly Pulitzer wrapping paper.
Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Lilly Pulitzer gift wrap, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop-Tone Black Licorice, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, ink – VersaMark, dies – Simon Says Stamp (sentiment label, Spellbinders (rectangle tag), embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white.
I still have some of the wrapping paper and cut up advertisement, and I used it for some new encouragement cards. Aren’t these sentiments great??
I did two coats of the white embossing powder to get complete coverage.

I’ve been struggling with my creative mojo for some time now. Just part of life, my mind is working overtime on things to fret about.
On Monday, I decided to do a purge on my card basket. I pulled out 40 cards. Went through them repeatedly…are these worthy of giving away? (or should I just trash them??) Yes, they were fine to give away. I texted a neighbor and asked if she would like some free greeting cards (knowing she works with people who like my cards – she could spread the windfall around if she wanted). By 2:00pm, the cards were out of my house.
I felt relieved. Lighter.
And with that, the mojo flowed.
I found a scrap of hoarded Lilly Pulitzer advertisement in my stash, and this card made itself.
And here is what I am listening to as I type. #LesMiserables
