Sooo hard!

Can anyone tell me why it is so hard to get back into the swing of things?!  I've not blogged in about a month and it's killing me!  I had 14 in-laws staying with us, the hubby and I had a mini vacay to celebrate our 10 year anni and days have gone by without any kind of crafting.  I don't really have an excuse anymore so I decided to just sit at my desk and force myself to make something!

I've been loving the inspiration in blogland, but why oh why can I not get out of this funk?!  Luckily my coworker placed an order for some cards and I got to work!

Lawn Fawn Louie's 123s die, Lawn Fawn Clark's ABCs, Lawn Fawn Hats Off to You
Delicata Gold ink and copics

Graduation party season is in full effect here so I've got tons of cards to make.  I needed to come up with a design that was easy to make multiples of and just change the colors of the background and the die cut numbers according to their school.  I wished the Delicata ink showed up better in the pic.

For my next card...

Memory Box Modern Landscaping die, Avery Elle Custom Panels die, Doodlebug Design pixie stick and flag,
Fresh Squeezed Stamp Father Knows Best, Sizzix circle die, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Distress Markers

So my coworker also wanted a golf themed Father's Day card and can you believe I didn't have a stamp set with that theme so I improvised a little.  With only having an evening to complete her order and using what I had, I think it's not too shabby.

I feel a little rusty jumping back into this after a month, but practice makes perfect right?!!

Mahalo for stopping by.  Thanks to my bloggy friends for checking in on me!  I promise I'll get back into the swing of things!!!
