The only thing worse than losing your scrappy mojo is losing your scrappy mojo and then getting it back only to have every thing you do turn out wrong. I started a project that was not new to me, but for some reason I made mistakes at every single step. Even the simple parts proved to be far too aggravating for me, so after 3 complete days of work (over a 1 week period) and about 8 different mistakes, I put the whole thing in a drawer (wanted to throw it in the garbage, but there were too many supplies tied up in it) and am forgetting about it for awhile. In the meantime I did this card for my BIL’s birthday:

This is the first time I’ve combined the circle Nestability die with the Labels 4 Nestie die. I LOVE the look, and will definately be trying this combo again. I used distress ink to colour the ebmossed edge of the circle. I used coloured pencils to colour the stamped image but I couldn’t find my Gamsol to blend it, so it’s just roughly shaded for shadows the best I could do without the gamsol. Papers are from the Granola collection by Basic Grey (picked up at a yard sale for $2!!!). Stamp image and sentiment is inkadinkadoo. Inks: Frayed burlap distress ink and Pacific Point (Stampin up).
