My January Blues Are Over

Every January my card mojo seems to disappear and I don't get as much enjoyment out of making cards as I did, I know this is very temporary and a hangover from making so many Christmas cards so I was delighted when my mojo popped out from under the desk yesterday and I've had a happy weekend crafting. maybe it is because my desk is the tidy version it didn't feel like it would get lost in the post Christmas detritus! 
Before Christmas I had a bit of a shopping spree at Lili of the Valley and bought some pre printed images (Sketch Pads) and some of the 8x8 Nitiwit paper pads plus a couple of normal stamps. This is one of those pre printed images, they are a dream to colour in, the card they are printed on is perfect; I have teamed it up with papers from the Bear Necessities pad of paper.

Here's my card:

Image- LOTV
Papers- Nitwit at LOTV
Greeting- Stampin' Up
Dies and Punches- Spellbinders, Leane Creatief and Stampin' Up
Pearls- Hobby House

I'm so glad your like for crafting has come back. I think we all get that after a break. This is such a lovely card. The LOTV image is great and I love your layers. The papers all work wonderfully together and the lovely diecuts finish this card off perfectly.
