Cant get it started?????

Ok So here is the deal
I have a small riding mower and i started it up about 2 weeks ago and after a bit of work she fired up and ran for about half an hour. I put it away and came back 2 weeks later and now i cant start it. I changed the spark plug and i know im getting spark for sure, i changed out the gas and the fuel filter looks good. What could be my problem? im a little at a loss for what to do next. I don't think that its the carb, it looks pretty clean when i take off the airfilter and its housing. It just wont catch. Any suggestions?
thanks matt
