Chocks Away

I've had most of this week on a break from crafting as I've been working long hours and not sleeping well, so it's been just about as much as I can do to muster enough energy to visit my favourite blog pals for a bit of of crafting eye candy.

I also think my mojo's on leave at the moment, and I'm not really pleased with my creation today.  It might be partly because it's a masculine card, which I always struggle with.  Even the fact it's a Christmas card, which is my favourite theme, wasn't enough to get my creativity flowing.

Although the image is not Christmassy, the papers are definitely festive, and I added a winter tree for good measure.

Hmmm. I'm still not sure it looks quite right though.  I think I might have to return to a girlie image to get me back on track again.

Aww Annette, this is a great card. I can be hard on myself as well especially if I don't put ribbon on a card. But I keep telling myself it's ok not to use ribbon on EVERY card. lol. Anyone who receives this card will love it, no worries!
