Hummingbirds and Cherry Blossoms

Hello crafty friends, 

maybe you got that some crafty friends and I had a great weekend with lots of chatting, crafting and having fun. The cards I wanted to show you were mostly done with supplies I borrowed from my friends. 

At the Moment I'm having a crafty hangover. I guess I had so much trouble at the moment, that it became a big effort to go to my crafty table and make something creative. I have to admit, that my heart is broken as crafting is my love. Normally it helps me feeling better and relaxes. And this made me sad and I was struggling if it would make sense to go on a crafty weekend without wanting really to craft. But I went. 

And I´m glad I did. I went there to meet the most incredible crafty peeps we have here. They are so funny, we had great talks about everything, we had workshops and they had great supplies :D I felt like in heaven. I went trough their places looking for supplies I don't own. So I went home with six cards and not even one stamp set was mine. 

I'm sorry I talked so much about my problems and feeling at the moment. Maybe it makes you understand better my abstinence and poor posting. 

For my card. I started with coloring both stamp sets I borrowed from Annika Lerche. I stamped the sets with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and started coloring the images with my Copic markers. As mentioned I was struggling with getting creative and my best tipp for this kind of problem: take a stamp set you really love, stamp and color it. Nothing fancy, just playing. Sometime I already have a card design I love which I just replicate. But this time not. I started coloring and then wen to the Brother Scan n Cut for fuzzy cutting. Then I remembered Yana Smakulas cards and how dimensional they are. So I went for this style. At the end I had two great cards. I was so happy for finding my way back to being creative. 

The other cards from my crafty weekend will be posted soon as well. I wish you all a great monday.
