I've been creatively stymied for more than a week....I am up to my ears with cardstock of all colors and patterns, hundreds of rubber stamps, and anything else someone could use to make a card, but I could not create. So I took a different tack: I chose a theme to work with. I haven't worked with my Asian images for a long time, so that's what I chose. Two cards came together fairly easily, but the third one didn't. Then I read Cynnie's Galerie 46 blog post about a mini accordion book. Actually, I've made these books before, and it was enjoyable to create an Asian-themed one with black and gold specialty paper.
