Lacking enthusiasm

I just can't seem to get motivated into making any cards at the moment. My cousin as mentioned in an earlier post had her baby, and instead of making a new personalized card I sent one from my 'already made' box, I did add an insert with a verse and baby's name on it! My other cousin in America had her baby yesterday morning and as yet I've neither made nor found one to send from the 'box'! Today I've been blog hopping seeing what challenges I've not yet done and catching up with friends blogs trying to find the enthusiasm to make some cards, but nothing. I did make 1 card but yet to take a picture of it and don't really like it, I hope this doesn't last long and I'm sure it won't, I have so many gorgeous images here waiting wanting to be coloured, perhaps tomorrow?
I will however show a couple of cards that I made last week
The first one is using one of the christmas Sugar Nellie images and using Nikki (BunnyZoe's) sketch and this one I don't think I like, is just layers of christmas papers, mirri card and coloured card, I didn't want to use an image or topper (my mum thinks it needs a bigger snowman in the centre?) I added the gems to the snowmens hats, the bow and sentiment as I thought it was missing something.

Yesterday whilst the girls amused themselves, Matthew and I moved bedrooms, what a task!! How can we accumilate so much? Easy I don't like throwing things away, that includes clothes that I know I'll never get into again how ever successful'a diet I go on! It seemed like we were staying somewhere else last night, but how ever hard we try it won't stay like it for long we're just not like that, sadly!

Hi Joanne!
Sorry you're feeling unmotivated to craft, I was like that last month and it is depressing isn't it! It seems like everyone else is in a happy crafting place and you're on the outside looking in! I think your cards are brilliant, keep going hon! Big hugs!
Love Becky xx

Hi Hun I know just what you mean I really don't want to be making cards at the moment I csn colour in images but just cannot summon uo the effort to make them into a crad, it is making me really miserable, which is them making it even harder, viscious circle syndrome. Hope you get the urge back soon. Oh does that sound rude
he! he!
