Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #12

Hi everybody, 
I want to know, after you have had a break of say 4 to 5 days away from home, how do you get back into crafting mode again? Because I am so lost here. There is so many things to do at home and work and kids and puppy and husband...... I am trying to catch up and its never ending. My washing machine is a darling, it did 5 loads yesterday without complaining and 3 loads today as well. I ironed for about 3 hours and only got half done and I am exhausted :(  I decided if I keep going, then I will go crazy. So I did some craft. But to get into the craft mood was so difficult. I wasted a whole A4 white cardstock and 2 hours before I liked what I am doing :(
Anyway, I made a card today for Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #12. 
The inspirational picture is so beautiful.
Here is the photo for you.

Every little picture in the collage is inspiring :) I feel like wanting to make atleast 6 cards but when it came to actually sitting with stamp, paper and inks, I was mojoless. Like I said, after wasting one A4 white cardstock, I made this card.

 I have been itching to use Craft Meows's Life is a carnival stamp set. And when I saw the picture of the giant wheel on the collage photo, I jumped and picked the stamp set to use on the card :) I used the colors from the inspirational photo to create this card. I like the colors and the fun and cheer it brings. I can't wait for the Royal Show in Perth in October :)
  Hope you like it :) Thanks for the challenge. If you like to play along, then here is the link

Oh! did I mention, I won the last challenge at Jay Gee's Nook. My card here was also mentioned at the Embellish Challenge. I am so thrilled. Thanks so much and I am so honoured :)
OK! got to go now, I have been writing this post for past one hour with multiple disturbances. So you all have a great day and I will catch you soon :)

Gayatri, I know how you feel about the washing and ironing...I was getting no where with mine, and thanks to my beautiful Mum, she took all the ironing home for me so I could get ahead again...but I seem to wash and it grows and grows..sigh!

I think the making of the card was a great thing and I just adore your sweet card...I am sure that the mojo is there because this turned out beautifully...hugs

Really lovely card, so bright and cheerful! I also hate it when 'work' gets in the way of precious crafting time. . . I cannot settle in my craft room when I know that jobs need doing - the curse of working women, our day is never over :) Hugs, x x
