Jacksonbelle Tuesday!

Wahoo, I'm back in my stamping room again! After our weeks vacation, last week was spent getting caught up and CLEANING house! Hubby has been putting in some major hours at work for his current project so it's pretty much been all up to dear ole Mom and needless to say, fun time in my craft room has been completely NILE! I was so excited to get the kids to bed last night. Dan had a presentation and 2 meetings today so he worked until almost midnight so I had a quite house all to myself. Since I needed to make my card for the JBE DT Challenge, I knew exactly what new supplies I wanted to use: the darling Detours collection from October Afternoon! It was love at first site when I saw this sweet little dear and I had yet to ink it up! The shame of it all!!! Anyway, last night I sat down at my craft table with beautiful supplies all around me ready to make a masterpiece. That's when it happened: my mojo came to a screeching halt. I was so... distraught. Well, knowing that I had to make a card and hoping that making a card would inspire my creativity, I did fall back on a tried and true sketch that always works for me. In the end I do like the way the card turned out (I will be giving it to my great niece for her 1st Birthday this weekend) but it was not the creative masterpiece that I had wanted to make- teeheehee! Oh well, if we didn't have "off" days we wouldn't appreciate that days we were "on!"

The theme for this weeks challenge is "anything goes." We would love for you to play along and see your beautiful creations. Please be sure to either link you card on a comment to this post or if you would like to put it in your SCS gallery, please be sure to use JBE013 in the keywords so we can see it!!! To view some awesome cards from the rest of the JBE DT, please stop by the other gals blogs!
