can you see the cheese charm?  click the photo to enlarge

Ever have one of those days when you can't seem to find the right colors, or you can't find papers you like or the sketch just doesn't click with you?  I was having one of those days when I was making this card.  But I'm stubborn and I'll just keep plowing through the loss of mojo.  The card may not be my heartfelt best but it's still something I worked at, and for a long time.  It was just an agonizing effort instead of a blast. 

This month Paper Pretties is sponsoring the Midnight Madness challenges. .You can get all the details at their blog (click here) and you'll find the linky thing for your creation.  So get something inky, you know you want to and play along.  Who knows, you could win a prize!
