Creating after a long, dry time

I have been struggling something shocking to find the time or inspiration to create. But a friend requested cards for her DH's birthday and I had just received my new Tim Holtz stamps and they were calling out to be used. This is what I came up with. I know it's not very birthday like but I enjoyed making it.

You can't see it but underneath the man image is gorgeous faux batik paper made by following the instructions on Carol's blog I had a great time making a variety of different backgrounds using this technique and that helps get some of the "mojo" back. [Misplacing my gloss c/s that I wanted for another project certainly hasn't helped maintain my enthusiasm. I am back to being frustrated lol!]
