At a loss...

I'm at a loss... I bought a stamp set for Christmas cards this year, and am just not completely inspired by it yet. Yes, I've shown you a couple of cards with it, but it just hasn't "done it" for me yet, at least not enough to say "that's it!". And so, here I am in October, yet to have a stack of Christmas cards. I need some inspiration. Maybe the Christmas spirit hasn't hit me yet.

My husband is out of town this week, so I'm parenting our 2 yr old alone. I don't like it, and I have to give a lot of credit to single parents out there- I really don't know how you do it! I definitely love having my husband around to help!

We made a pretty autumn card at stamp camp last week, I thought I'd share it with you. I LOVE eggplant and olive together, and the kraft cardstock doesn't get used enough at my house. So when I saw this card, I LOVED it! It's really quite simple, but it works! I think the wheel is called Leaves Awash from Stampin' Up! Also used linen thread and a teeny oval tag. I haven't decided what to put on the tag yet.

Enjoy your week. If my daughter hasn't completely worn me out, maybe I'll be inspired and energized enough to stamp one night. Until then...
