Life Is good

Hi there, Time for another MoJo Monday sketch.
I took liberties with this sketch and flipped it .
I had found this paper pad at M's , for like $2..
Its from DCVW and its called "Tahiti."Beach Stack
So many gorgeous papers in it .
Because the paper I used had word sayings all over it,
I decided to flip the sketch, so you could read the words.
Also the blue sheet had an outline of a person surfing the wave.
So this is how my card came about.
So I then dug out my Verve stamp set with the surf boards,
sentiment and a wave outline.
added a bit of black ricrak and some black gems.



Thank you all for visiting, I love reading your comments.
Be sure to check out the MoJo Makers for their awesome creations.
Have a wonderful Monday!
Edit to add:
I apologize to my viewers for my card posting late.
I had it schedule to post at 9:15 am, as I usually do ,
but for some reason I had checked 9:15 pm.
An over sight on my part. So sorry!
I will double check next time.

May Your Blessings.....

Hi popping in to change it up a bit and show you
a card I made for the Shabby Tea Room.


The challenge for this week.... "Luck Of The Irish"
with this inspiration pic, and you have to use green.
I don't normally make cards for St.Pats,but since I just got this paper
from M's a few days ago on sale and it was still setting out on my desk,
and I saw what the challenge the Shabby Tea Room was hosting, I couldn't resist not using this paper.I went with the Mojo sketch again.
Loving this sketch with the split panel.
I had bought several sheets and I got a couple of them for just 20 cents a sheet.Couldn't resist a bargain,lol.
I cut the flourish from one of the sheets, the shamrock from another, the outer strip from another,layered it with some matching CS,then added some ribbon.The sentiment is from Verve.
Thank you for visiting. I love to hear your comments.
Have a wonderful day!

You're A Friend...............MoJo181

Hi and welcome back to another MoJo Monday.
Its the first Monday of the month and that means its contest time.
The first sketch of every month is our Mojo Madness contest with prizes for our top picks.
The Prizes: We'll have one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of SEVEN winners!!! Winners will receive the Verve Stamps set of their choice.


Isn't this sketch so awesome?
Julee has outdone herself on this one, I just love it.
Julee has also inspired me to purchase these butterflys embellies.
I've seem them on several of her cards and I just had to get them.
And would you believe it , we both used them on this sketch,lol.


Btw, I was in and made changes to my blog's setting and updated my editor.
I am not sure I am liking this setting.
Took me several minutes to find how to upload my pics.
Everything is in a different spot.
Anyone else did the upgrade?
If so  how do you like it?


Be sure to check out the MoJo Team for their awesome creations.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful Monday!

Note Set.......

Hi there, just popping back in to change up the scenery again.
I did this project for 2 challenges.
The Shabby Tea Room and Verve's Fan Hop.



The Shabby Tea Room's challenge>>>>>.
Classic elegance with an inspiration picture and to use the colors
RED, WHITE (OR CREAM) AND BLACK .
I went with cream.
While searching for paper to use , I came across
these note pads and file folders I purchased at M's some time ago.
Since the pad didn't have a cover, I made my cover from the file folder.
Then layered on some black and cream CS. The cream CS has a shimmer to it.

I am also entering this for the Verve Fan Hop .... the challenge was to use at least one Verve stamp for your project.
Verve is giving away prizes again.
Julee has hidden a mystery prize on some one's blog, so be sure to enter and leave some lovin.
But wait , she will also be picking a random commenter from one of the Verve Fan hop entries, so go and leave some lovin, you may be the lucky
one.


I also found the pen and paper pad in my stash as well.
Gotta love M's dollar bins.



This is the inside of the pad I used.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful weekend.
