What a cop out I am this week, I should have cut all ther papers out and made a patchwork square, but I am struggling with Card  Making at the moment so I have used this gorgeous Patchwork paper from Nitwits Collection.  It is a very plain card today as I wanted the papers to speak for themselves.  The Image and Sentiment are from the Penny Black Bundle of Joy Transparent Set.  The ribbon (which is actually pink but looks lilac on the photo) is from Fantastic Ribbons, I have used a Martha Stewart around the page punch from Crafters Companion to frame the image which has been coloured with Copics.

I was wondering if anyone else had trouble finding the inspiration for Card Making and Blogging after having a break, it has been really hard this week.
Well sorry it is a bit short there is a certain Football Match that I just have to watch!!!!!
COME ON ENGLAND!!!!!!!!  I AM SURE WE CAN DO IT.

Hi Jacqui, this is so pretty and certainly doesn't look as if you're struggling. I know exactly what you mean though because I have the same problem if I have a break. I'm in one of those phases now and I hate it!
