Let the Sneak Peeks begin and FMS117

Well I think my Mojo left with our Christmas Elf Sparkles, as I really haven't found the motivation to make anything this week. I have all this free time as Hubby is on holidays at the moment, so it gives me some child free time and I just can't face going into my scraproom.

Do you ever feel like that? Well I have three fail safe ways to get the juices flowing, the mojo moving and today I am going to share them with you!!

1) Clean up your scraproom. Yep I know it's not the best job, but I always find having everything put away, the tables cleaned down and the room ready to go, I always want to stay and start creating straight away. And hey if it doesn't work, no worries, you room is ready when you are!!

2) Make or buy something inspiring, pretty or beautiful for your craft room. This tip i think falls into the Retail Therapy section. I want my room to not only inspire me but also entice me in. Sometimes I will just sit and look at everything lol.

3) Ok this one is an oldie but a goodie. Pick a Challenge! Yep that's it. I know it sounds simple, but honestly it works. And this is the tip I used to inspire my card today.

I popped on over to Freshly Made Sketches and decided that the Sketch Challenge they had on today, would be perfect for me, easy and simple.
Honestly, how can you go wrong with that layout lol. So here is my take:

Pretty cute hey!! Ok so some of you will notice I am using one of the stamp sets in our new Valentine Promotion 'Love you More'. This set is so gorgeous and perfect for V'day. Oh and I can hear you asking about what is the DSP I've used... yep, well that is my SAB (Sale-A-Bration) sneak peek for today. It is one of the Free products you can earn during Sale-A-Bration. Honestly, it's even more gorgeous in real life!!

And did you notice I also add a bit of dimension to my little arrow by bending it in the middle slightly. Hopefully you can see it more clearly in this photo:

So there you go, I hope these helpful hints give your mojo a little nudge when you need it. And why not pop on over to Freshly Made Sketches and have ago yourself. The link is open until January 6th, so you have plenty of time!!

Have Fun,


Stamps: Love you more,
Ink: Sahara Sand, Calypso Coral and Early Espresso
