Mojo: Lost

My craft room is a disaster... which makes it very difficult to create! It's on my to-do list, but until then I am trying to get more inspiration from the internet.  I get nervous about "stealing" someone else's idea... that is never my intention, but then I discovered The CSI Project... as in Create Something Inspiring!!  and I was inspired!! and the projects cover every imaginable idea... not just papercrafting!

The first challenge I participated in was Typography!!  That should be easy in my line of "work"/hobby of cardmaking!!  and I did enjoy the card I produced, although it looked better in my head.  Good news is my sister likes it and wants me to make her a set of them!  Then came the Pantone Color of the Year.  I made an adorable baby girl card in Honeysuckle pink... but didn't get it posted to my blog in time to link up to the challenge (I was soo dissapointed).  Then they did a molding challenge... and I just couldn't see how to work that into a card, so I skipped that one.  but you could still check it out, there are some seriously handy, crafty people out that with awesome decorating ideas.

All that to say, that this week's challenge is Green/St.Patrick's Day!  While I don't have any shamrock stamps, I have lots of green supplies, so I thought this would be easy to make a eye-catching card, but I don't think I succeeded!  This isn't one of those contests where the winner is chosen randomly, you actually have to impress the judges with your work!! :)  ... bbuuuuutttt because my craft area is a mess, I just couldn't put something smashing together!!  :(  However I did manage to make 3 cards that someone, somewhere, might just be interested in!  So here is my submission of green cards to the CSI Projects "GREEN" challenge!

 St. Patrick's Day ... who said kissable lips had to be red??

  Lots of Springtime green, pretty flower buckets, a little pastel accent, and a sweet message inside!

Shades of Green, fun stamps, a perfect card for a friend far away!! (but a little too simple for me) I think it needs some more GREEN!

Then I went through my files to see what other great green cards I have made in the past... here they are!

If you are interested in anything you see, stop by my online card shop to see more or to make a special order!!  As always I am open to compliments, suggestions, criticisms (unless you make me cry), etc!
