SOA Challenges !

I created this card using Julee's sketch from
what is going on at the SOA forum.There are lots
of fun challenges and many prizes to be won.
Jen Tapler founded the site and is raising money to
help fight Alzheimer's, You can be apart of this worthy
cause by donating $5.00.

I created this card using up more of the crate paper
I had on my desk. The blue is the flip side of the cream pattern
paper .In my previous cards I used green, the flip side of the black pattern paper.I made this card as a wedding card.I am stock piling cards to sell.
Stamps; Verve
Accessories;MA polka dot ribbon,MS lace doily punch,$store rhinestone hearts.Glitter pen.
I am also trying my hand at digital scrapbooking.
This layout is using the free kit and sketch also from SOA.

This is my DGD playing in the sand.I love how this turned out.
I have a few more layouts of my GD, which I will post later.
I have met so many wonderful people since I have been blogging.
I have received many emails commenting me on my cards.
Thank you so much,It means so much to hear from you all.
Have a wonderful day.

Birthday Special

Julee from Verve Stamps extended her sketch for the special
guest designer for the June release.I am so glad she did.
I had entered a card earlier and wasn't pleased with it.
So I redid the sketch for the 2nd time and I am loving this
card. I hope Julee does as well.

Since I still had the paper from my Mojo card left on my desk,
and I love how the colors went together so well, I decided to use it again.
I added a lot of bling to this card and the pics doesn't pick it up very well.
I stamped the flowers and cut them out and pop dotted them, added some branches, some rhinestones, ribbon.

Birthday Special MoJo 87 !

Welcome to another MoJo Monday.
Julee has out done herself again with
another awesome sketch. I loved this sketch
and used it for a birthday card for my son.
What do you think?Is it masculine enough
for a guy? I always struggle with masculine cards,
maybe because I don't have many masculine stamps
to use.

Paper: heidi swapp
Stamps:Verve &Pink Cat Studio
Ink: Memento
Accessories: Jute, $store beads, Basics 3 slice design card,
circle nesties, tombow markers.

Thank you for visiting and don't forget to check out
the rest of the MoJo Makers for their creations.
They always rocked the sketches.
Have a wonderful Monday.
I am off tomorrow for the holiday and plan on
spending it with DH.

Happy 60th !

Isn't this stamp set from SU hilarious?
A friend celebrated his 60th Birthday this
weekend and I just had to use this stamp image
on his card.I don't have many stamps for men and
I always struggle with masculine cards.
I used a sketch from OCC. It was last weeks sketch
which I never got time to do.
It also qualifies for Sharon's Challenge for the "Guys".
I also made a little gift card holder to hold a Timmy's card.
Who can't use a Timmy's card?lol.
This card and holder went together really fast.
I paper pieced his shirt and shorts, added some jute and
some black beads.
I was quite pleased how it turned out.

View of holder open.

Another MoJo Monday !

Happy MoJo Monday.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.
I had a very quiet relaxing day.I am feeling a lot better but
Dh is still sick .He has had a rough couple of weeks.
I had to take him to the doc twice.As soon as he is feeling much better he
plans to make it up to me.What a sweetie he is.

Julee has created another wonderful sketch.We get our sketches
in advance and as soon as I saw this sketch, I thought ,mmmm
I know exactly what I want to do with this sketch, but it didn't happen.
The stamps I wanted to use were too big for the panels.
I had the base of my card made for days but couldn't come up with an idea for the panels.So finally I went with this.
Do you ever get days like this, when nothing you do, ever looks right.

Stamps; Verve
Paper: Basic grey
Ink: SU
Accessories; Offray ribbon, K& Co rhinestone,Glitter pen., Threading water punch.

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to check out the Mojo Makers

Wow, that is exciting and enough to get your mojo going.
So please play along and upload your card so we all can see.

For all my followers, I am sorry I haven't updated.
I've been to sick.This flu really took a toll on me.
My head cold went to a full blown sinus infection.I thought my head was going to explode from all the pain.This is the first time I have experience this and not something I want to repeat.
I did go to my doc but she just gave me some spray and it wasn't working, so
Dh took me to emerg on Sat. and the doc put me on antibiotics.
I am glad to say the pressure in my head has subsided a lot.
So I think I can say I am finally on the mend.Its been a rough 2 weeks.
Plus Dh came down with the flu as well.

All paper and cs used on this card came from SU.
