Lazy Days

It's been a while, hasn't it?
I don't know why but somehow I'd lost the bug and I had absolutely no desire to create anything. The last cards I made were Christmas cards (which I forgot to take photos of) and I think I only made those because I felt I had to send home made cards.
I tidied up my office this past week (it took me 6 hours!) and it was lovely coming in and seeing everything clean and in its place. I know this helps me to create as I can't can be open to ideas when there is chaos around me.
I bought this cute LOTV stamp at last years NEC craft fair and I thought it was time I inked it up. It makes me want to go and lie down and take a snooze :) I find boys card really hard to make as I want to put flowers and ribbons on them but here less if definitely better!
I'm sorry it's a bit fuzzy.......

  3. So sweet. I have this stamp and I think I've only used it once. Isn't that awful? I'll have to break it out again for sure.
