CARDS Collage Challenge




The CARDS blog challenge for this week is to make a card with lots of 'white' space and have a collage in a corner. I guess you could make it in the middle too but.... you get the picture.

Well... I thought this was a great idea. I was so excited to get to work on it and have spent the past two nights on these 3 cards. Yea... 2 nights (several hours both nights) on 3 cards! I thought it would be easy but boy... was I wrong.

I have been struggling AGAIN with the mojo and just life in general lately. Seems like I have soooo much to do and just not enough time in the day! Anyway... I will save that for another post. Life is good, I just seem to be creeping back into the same ole habits and I need to stop!

So... these are my 3 cards... I am officially done and moving on to something else!! I love this idea and want to make more but will have to do it some other time when I don't have to struggle so much with it!

Hope you all are having a great day!

I am going to be lazy and not post my supplies today!

Peace and Love!! :)

Sweet, baby - Kelley! I am so sistered-up with you at the moment, it's not EVEN funny! [will we EVER catch up?] But, if you don't mind me saying, there's nothing slowing down the creative FABULOUS output right here, lil' darlin! These are SO well done! Golly, golly, golly gosh! I'm in love with these cards!!!! ESPECIALLY, the bottom, craft one! It's DELICIOUS! You're fabulous!

Ooooh, Kelley, I love these and I think {wink} I know where they are headed! Good luck! They look awesome!

No Mojo? What? These are great! I can't pick a favorite, I love them all! :) I pray God gives you peace of mind, I know life gets a little overwhelming sometimes! Hang in there sister! :)

These are GREAT Kelley! Wouldn't be surprised if these were all featured as well!! Love the flower with the pink polka dots! Super!

These are awesome girl! I think your time was well spent, but I know how it goes. I've not had the energy to craft lately. Work has zapped it out of me. I am sorry you are struggling. I pray that you will be comforted. I always find comfort in the Word. The Psalms are always a great place to go. You will be lifted up in my prayers! Big hugs to you!

Habits are hard to change! You'll get your mojo back! I LOVE these cards! I think my favorite one is the middle card with the bubble wrap stamped. They are all lovely just like you!

I vote for more hours in the day, too!! This getting dark so early doesn't help at all!! I leave for work in the dark and have about 2 hours of daylight when I get home...ugh!

okay..onto the important stuff :) I love the collage cards - I think the last card is my favorite! believe me girl - your mojo is still there :)

What fun cards Kelley. I think this challenge would have been hard for me too but you've pulled it off very nicely.

These are all so great! And I chuckle because this morning in my shower I was brainstorming this challenge... and I could not get those darn worn backgrounds by Unity out of my head! Lol... and what do ya know? Lol! They look great!

Jessica said...

What did I tell you? I knew those were going front page! Great job and congrats on your win on the Cards Blog!

Nice job on the Cards challenge -- and I see from the comment above that you even got a little recognition. Way to go! Sounds like you needed the lift.
I'm so behind in everything, but told myself today that I absolutely was not leaving work until I checked your blog -- so here's my comment for this post and the two more recent ones. Love the little raggedy doll card, and the story you told along with it. And the pink card for Embellish, too. I'd sure like to find the time to play with my Unity stamps -- but now my PTI order is going to be delivered today and we have plans all weekend. Probably not a lot of stampin' is going to be goin' on at my house.
Well, off to another part of the day. Glad Carver seems to be feeling better today (love the snoring story -- if I hadn't already written so much I'd tell you a similar story on me!). Have a great weekend!
