A Brain Cramp, Camp Snoopy, CASEing Kim and Sketch 133

So....  I had a complete brain cramp on making card kits for the OWH card making party coming up at the end of this month.  Mojo - completely gone!   I decided to play with Halloween stuff and came up with these totally inappropriate cards.

 Alas, still no mojo for card kits..... Then my neighbor told me a story about her friend who took a group of kids to Dorney Park, our local amusement park, and threw up after riding the kiddie roller coaster in the Camp Snoopy part of the park.  That gave me an idea for a card for her to send ....

 But that still isn't helping with the kits.  Neither did what I came up with for Sketch 133.

I couldn't care less about football, but the stickers were cute, so I'm going to try to use them up.
My last ditch effort for a card kit came from a CASEing Kim at -Thanks, Kim!  Now I know what to do next time I have a brain freeze. 

That's my day in a nutshell.  Let's hope the upcoming week goes a lot better!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. We all go through that, trust me! I think your cards all turned out fine in spite of your harsh criticism! I only made 3 card kits to bring to the meet so far, but hopefully once we all get together we can have a serious meeting of the creative minds :) Stop trying so hard - you're doing just fine :)

  2. Wow...those cards are awesome! I think they are amazing! The football turned out great-- someone is going to love receiving that :)

  3. Glad you found your mojo! My fav is the footfall one! TFS!!!

  4. This is no mojo?? Seriously?? Don't be so hard on yourself - these are all great!

  5. If that is what happens when the mojo is missing, send it away permanently! The dance cards are NOT inappropriate..they adorable! (along with the others, but those are my favs). CASE away, darling. That's what sharing is all about. :)

  6. You are being way to hard on yourself....but I do understand and often feel I have lost my MOJO hear ya!! I think your cards look great and I also wanted to thank you for the nice comment on my blog.

    I think we ALL have lousy days and down times and during those times...we all get upset, or feel crappy and believe me, I understand that very I try VERY hard to remember that things could always be's NOT easy, but it's a good focus and sometimes it really helps me!!

    Hope you feel you GOOD mojo back soon....! Happy Crafting!!


  7. Way to find you some mojo!! You've been working so hard for your party. I can't wait to hear how it all goes. Wish I were attending. By the way, Snoopy looks good in front of that roller coaster.

  8. These are great, Nancy! I especially love the clever use of a sticker for the football card - a great one for boys! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  9. Hey Nancy, Thanks for sharing your story and your cards. I think everyone of us can relate to those times when we have no mojo... but then it does come back, and yes, it's good!!!
    Thanks for sharing your football card for sketch# 133-- it's a big high five! :D Carol

  10. Quite a variety there but great cards! I really like the Snoopy card and the one you did for your card kits. Nice job.
