Not in the crafting mood

     I don't know what is wrong with me, I can't make myself complete a card. I'm really struggling! I hope that this doesn't last long.  I really count on the relaxation of creativity in the evenings . I've been in the couponing mood though. I guess that is good at least i'm saving money. Well, not really, i've started buying Christmas. I 've actually finished buying for a few people.
     I did finally finish a card today after many hours of attempting yesterday.  This is a Kenny K digital stamp called "Mrs. Claus". I colored her with Copic markers and added liquid applique to her "fur" areas. I embossed the green cardstock with a Spellbinders snowflake embossing folder and then sanded it to make it white. I used a Martha Stewart corner and border punch along the edges of the mat for Mrs. Claus.  I found the felt poinsettia  in the Christmas department of Hobby Lobby. The package came with 10 flowers and they were half off.  What a great deal!
