A gotta make

 Hi Everyone, well mojo has completely left me, so I decided to choose an image and go with it no matter what happened, even if I had to put it into the bin, at least it would get me started. I decided to go through my digital stamps and use something I haven't used before and I can tell you there are a great many. 

Anyhow, this is what I came up with, it has given me a spurt to do more, how long it will take to do is another thing.  I had seen a card on Pinterest with an image that was very simply done, so I cased it and this is the result. Not as good as the original but I'm pleased.

After I had placed the centre onto the card, it was a little too simple for me, so I made a frame and added it. Those thin frames are a bit wobbly, so it has a little ripple it, any tips on placing them?

Love, love, love! One would NEVER know your mojo left you, lol! This is a great card! I have had die cuts that rippled like that too, and I don't have a solution... I just go with the flow.

I love the image Faith, it’s so sweet. Afraid I don’t having any helpful suggestions about the frame but you really have to look hard to see the ripple, don’t think I would have noticed if you hadn’t mentioned it xx

This is so adorable and a great CAS design! You did a great job with the framing and your coloring is perfect for this image.

My mojo is somewhere south of gone, so I know how you feel.

Hi Faith! Very cute card and I'm proud of you for using such a clever tactic to tell your mojo it does not get to loaf! I'm suffering with my muse as well, and blame it on warmer weather plus nothing lasts forever.

Hmm, the frames like that would only be super stiff if you used 110# card or more, I'd think. But why? It looks great as is and that is what HOMEMADE means, lol! XOX
