Sorry for your loss

Hello blog friends! I hope everyone is doing well!
I wanted to share a card that I made with a couple of challenges in mind!

This turned out to be a very simple card, but a difficult card for me to do!
I don't know if it was the colors, or what! Or my creative juices just weren't wanting to work!
In the end it turned out prettier than what I had anticipated, but not like what I had envisioned!
Do you ever have one of those days????



I hope the ghosts and goblins don't scare you too much tonight! hoohahaha!!!!!!!!
This is my little Goblin!


Happy Halloween!

Stunning card. Love the layered circles. I thought WOW WHAT A BEAUTIFUL CARD when I first looked at it....then I read your posting....glad I'm not the only one who is having a creative block. I worked on a GDT card for 4 days and am not sure I like it. Grrrr

I think it must be a Halloween trick or something, so many creative blocks going around, myself included! But this is one wonderful card Mackie...no block showing here!!!

Awww! Your little goblin makes such a cute unicorn! And, your card is stunning! Love the soft look of the card, the double layered die cuts and the gray sponging on the sentiment layer--your card almost glows. I, too, make a lot of cards that don't turn out like I expect. It's funny how your creative brain just takes over, isn't it? Thanks for joining us at CR84FN! ~Hugs, Cheryl

Your poor dog!!! Did he enjoy himself? So, so cute!

And your card is just lovely - very pretty - I like the accent pearls on your sentiment label. Thanks so much for playing along with CR84FN!

Beautiful card. I think that this color scheme is nice for a sympathy card--the yellow could kind of symbolize the light after the sadness. Thank you for sharing! :)

Mom, dont think of them as creative blocks, just chances to slow down. It is the slow downs that allow creativity to grow. When I was in school if one of my paintings turned out exactly as I envisioned it, that usually meant that it was too easy. It meant there was no challenge involved. We need the challenges to continue to be innovative and create. I love you!
