Trying a little less fussy

Hello friends and followers, hope you are all well and that you had a good weekend.
I had a lovely Mothers Day, went shopping with my daughter and had some lunch out which was very nice-hope you all had a lovely day however you spent yours.
I've had a little bit of a crafting wobble this week-someone made a comment on my cards and said I should make some that were more simple and with more general images-not the 'little girls' I normally use. I spent about three hours yesterday trying to do just that but I don't know, I struggled with it and felt a bit lost for a while. I ended up throwing three away, getting myself in a right old mood and then putting all my stuff away.
In the end I came up with this one -no flowers and no die cuts and although it is girly she isn't little!! I felt a little bit lost and my mojo definitely went AWOL but then figured I should just make what makes me happy and accept that it won't always be what other people may choose!
My image is from Pink Gem and is a pre-coloured version-I really love the colours on this one so chose to use this rather than colour one up myself and after spoiling three cards I felt I needed something a bit quicker.
My papers are from Lozzy at A Bit More Time to Craft and are from the Fun set. The only thing added is a sentiment and a couple of gems:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

well that's all from me for today, hopefully I'll be back soon and my mojo will have returned to it's normal self.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and for any comments you wish to leave. Have a good week and until next time.
Andree xx

  10. I think this is my first time visiting you blog, but you have to stay true to who YOU are in your crafting. there will always be negative Nelly's around - you can't change that. but you have to be true to yourself. you will only be really happy with the crafts you create when you are YOU! :)

    now, you have created a lovely card, but go back to being yourself. yes, challenge yourself, but maintain your uniqueness.

    Thank you for joining our 'Woman/Women' challenge at Cardz for Galz! :)
