where have I been?

I'm baaaaaack........

OMG!!! Where has the time gone and where have I been and what have I been doing? I haven't blogged since August!! This is the longest drought that I have ever had since I first started blogging.

Life has so gotten in the way of my creativity. I have been in a stamping slump. Despite the purchase of a bunch of cool new stuff, it has taken awhile to get my mojo back.

Usually a look at pinterest or challenges helps. I just had to let it go and wait. Today inspiration hit. Shopping Our Stash had a challenge with "trees" as the theme. You could go anywhere with that one. Since the holidays are just around the corner, I decided on a Christmas card.

The trees are a bit subtle, my friends at SOS my choose to disqualify me, but all I know is their challenge gave me mojo back!! Thank you SOS!!!

I used this Hero Arts stamp for the trees.  Where the moon is on the stamp I added a bit of bling.
The deer hanging in front of the trees are also Hero Arts.

Add any saying and you have a quick and easy OLC. Just perfect to get the creative juices flowing again!

Hopefully, I won't let so much water flow under the bridge before I blog again!!

What an absolutely lovely design ... that Hero Arts image in the background is one of my favorites, and you made it even prettier with the deer ... love it.

You go, girl! No way we'd DQ this card... it would be a crime... this is awesome on multiple levels: the colors are what initially caught my eye (love), but then to see it up close, this card rocks! I just love the subtle nod to Rudolph! Thank you for linking at SOS, dearie.

DQ this lovely card????? NEVER!!!!! It's a beautiful winter scene, love the pair of deer in the forefront with those awesome trees in the background.
Thank you for sharing at SHOPPING OUR STASH, and welcome back, so glad our challenge helped you find your MOJO back!!
