What is my problem?

I had a really good stamping session Sunday afternoon, and haven't stamped since, or really had the desire to. I don't know what's wrong with me lately, I used to stamp EVERY afternoon. The past month or so it just hasn't been happening. I still love it, and I REALLY love the collecting part, so hopefully I'll get back on track soon. So here's a card I made last week, it had been brewing in my head for a while:
Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a great week!
stamps - owl journal box (unity), Polka Dot Basics (PTI)
paper - new leaf, lemon tart, white
ink - memento, copics, summer sunrise
acc - top note die, foam letters (target $ spot a long time ago), aqua mist ribbon

I love this! I have yet to use my top die note and I see sooo many adorable cards using it!

Don't let the slump get you down. I think we all lose our motivation once in a while. You just need a little break to re-fuel!

I feel your pain. It comes and goes, unexpectedly...the mojo, I mean. Go with it, don't fight. Reorganize stuff. Shop. Or take a walk. Whatever. It'll come back, strong as ever.(((hugs)))

This card is adorable! I'm lovin' the owl, and the ribbon placement is perfect!

When I stress myself out about stamping is when my mojo leaves but I TRY to go with the flow :) It will come back! Thanks for my cute birthday card it is adorable!

Cute owl and a fun LO!

I hear with the mojo thing. I was in a funk a few weeks ago. It comes and goes for everybody. Don't stress--just keep collecting, and it'll come back on its own! ;)

I think we all go through mojo/motivation funks here and there. It will come back and you'll be making more delicious treats for us!

I can totally relate Becky! I think I have to do a good clean up. Part of my problem is that I can't find anything...too much stuff~!

Great card :)
