good times, come on!
So have you ever heard the story of Sampson? How his mighty strength left him once Delilah cut off his hair? Well, I'm pretty sure I was suffering from some kind of reverse Sampson effect because it had been months since my last hair cut and recently my crafty mojo has been less than stellar. So yesterday I went and got it all chopped off and I feel SOOOO much better! What can I say... I'm a short hair gal through and through. And even though I woke up in the morning not knowing if I would have a card to share today... once I got home last night I was anxious to get into the crafty room.
Now I'm not saying I was able to re-invent the wheel or anything, heck... I don't even think I'm quite out of my rut yet. But I enjoyed putting this card together and it was good to have that feeling back. :)
I'm thinking all that extra hair was sucking out my creativity and now that it's gone I'll have all sorts of ideas popping into my head as well as the desire to get them onto a card. Like I said, reverse Sampson... LOL! ;)
So this card came together really quickly once I found this sheet of paper with all the lanterns on it. As soon as I spotted this print it was a no-brainer to pair it up with sweet little Mei Li from Sister Stamps. And all those lanterns got me into a festive mood so I thought this would make for a cute and different kind of birthday card. Simple, fun and not too shabby for an hour in the crafty room.
Ok, time for me to scoot off to work. Take care friends!
