{MFTWSC99} You Sparkle

Well hello there! Did you miss me? I have been super sick lately with this horrid cold/cough that has moved into my chest now :( I am sooooo sick of it and might have to break down and go to the doc's. I am a firm believer that 'Not all bugs need drugs' and 99% of the time let things run their course (I don't even think my 3 year old have ever been on antibiotics, when I think about it!)...but it's been over 2 weeks with no reprieve! It's just getting worse it seems! Anyway, why am I telling you all this? Because for the first time since I started this little 'hobby' I have NOT cared the least bit to go down and stamp something. Nope. Nothing. No mojo. I've read paper crafting magazines, surfed blogs, gotten new packages in the mail. Nothing has me interested in crafting. Scary, huh? 
Tonight I finally FORCED myself to get down there and give it a go, and I can't say that I love the results, but I guess it was good to get a toe in the water.

This card is for this weeks MFT sketch challenge (there will be a new one tomorrow!) I am just under the wire!

I've used an MFT PI skating girl and snowflake die. The DP and CS are Stampin' Up! The jute twine is from the Ribbon Carousel.

I hope that I feel the urge to really get back at it. But on a plus, I have decorated my house beautifully for Christmas! Maybe I'll post some pics on here for you to see! It's probably my favourite job I've done yet! 
Maybe some of you have some tips for me regarding getting inspired again? Maybe it's just that time of year where we all have so many other things going on that crafting is on the back burner? Fingers crossed it's just being under the weather and when I kick this nasty bug I'll be getting right back in the saddle! Don't give up on me yet..... :)
