Stampotique challenge


When does creative inspiration usually strike for you? In my case it is very often first thing in the morning. I get out of bed, make myself a cup of coffee, and after a few sips of caffeine an idea will pop into my head. When this does happen all I want to do is get out my crafting stash and have a play. But unfortunately I rarely have the chance to explore my ideas at the time because I have got to get washed and dressed and leave for work! So for me, freedom would be the chance to say I'm not going to work today, I'm going to stay at home and create! This is what inspired me to make this card for the latest SDC on the theme of freedom, using Stampotique's Moon Girl. The 'I don't feel like working' stamp is by Paper Artsy.

How TRUE, Angela! How many of us wish we didn't have to go to work, but instead could stay at home and stamp, stamp, stamp! Thanks for joining us at SDC.

Sounds like you need a day off, maybe you should take a couple days off to replenish yourself. You come first you know.
Love the card!
