Mojo where are you???

Anyone seen my mojo? I've had a nasty cold this week including barely being able to talk for days. I'm ready for it to be over. I have done nothing for the Papertrey Blog Hop tomorrow night and I'm hoping that my midnight mojo is going to kick in soon. In the meantime, I'll post a card that I made for Administrative Professionals Day this week.
I am having some trouble putting down my Wise Owl set lately. I think these little owls are the cutest ones on the market and the branch is from Beautiful Blooms. Also, the Guidelines 2 set is a lot of fun to play with. For this particular background I didn't even use the grid, I just stamped one of the focal images repeatedly for the background. A dash of Pure Poppy red in the center of each tied it in nicely with the rest of the card. Also, I finally got around to stitching on a card for real. I don't own a sewing machine and have never taken the time to stitch a card but I thought it added a nice touch and I was feeling too terrible to really stamp much this week. It took me days to make this card, a few minutes here and there. To give it a "woodsy" look I ran the Nestabilities background through the cuttlebug and then gave everything some distressing with my inks and distress tool. Hope you like it!

Now, I'm off to my happy stamping place to put together a template for the blog hop tomorrow. I hope you stop by.

Great job! I love the background you stamped and the embossing on the label frame!
