Happy Birthday !

Good MoJo Monday peeps.
Time for another Mojo Sketch,Julee is rocking these sketches.
I love this sketch and decided to make another birthday card.
I can never have too many birthday cards,lol.
I pulled out some Cosmo cricket paper to play with for this sketch.
I am not a huge fan of bold and bright colors but I love the orange in
this card.
This past week went by so fast, I didn't get much time in my scrap room.
I have loads of new stuff I want to play with and since my schedule
for this week is pretty good,I only have one evening shift and with the holiday,
I will have more time to play.

Paper:Cosmo Cricket
Stamps: Verve
Ink: Memento and Versa color
Accessories:Offray ribbon, $store pearls,glitter pen, nesties.
Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you all. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Mojo Makers. They are awesome in their creations.

Good MoJo Monday !

Good Mojo Monday everyone.
The past week has been very busy.
Our company arrived from England and we have been entertaining
them.Taking them all around the valley , showing them the sights.
We had a big family gathering on Sat. outside. The weather was calling for rain but it held off.All the planning and preparations went off with out an hitch.
Everyone enjoyed meeting them and there were a lot of emotions.
It was their first time visiting Nova Scotia.I also got to meet more of DH's family from all over Canada.
I manage to sneak away last nite before bed to make my card.
I didn't have an idea what to do , so grabbed the new papers I still had
on my desk ,some nesties and the first stamp set I saw.
All in all, I don't think it turned out to bad.

Paper:My Minds Eye
Stamps: Verve
Ink: SU
Accessories: MA ribbon, BG half pearls,glitter pen.
Thank you for visiting , I love to hear your comments.
Be sure to check out the rest of the MOJO Makers cards.
I am off to see my grandson graduate and then to the fire hall
to help out with a catering we have for a graduation class of 350.
Have a wonderful Monday!

World's Best Husband!

Good MoJO Monday everyone.
I like to say I am sorry to my viewers that I haven't been posting regularly.
I work full time and the past several weeks I have been house cleaning
and painting.It has taken up all my extra time.
I have company coming from England this week, whom I have never met, and wanted my home to be extra clean ,not that it wasn't clean before,lol.I have been cleaning and painting like crazy.DH is asking why I am going thru all this , but all you women know what its like.....right? lol

I made this card for my DH, cause he really is the world's best husband.
He is always so caring and loving and is always there for me no matter what
I am going thru.He is my best friend, mentor,protecter and pillar of strength.
He is also so much fun to be with, he is always pulling pranks , cracking jokes and making me laugh.

This weeks sketch is a long card and its been awhile since I made one of these.
I didn't make it a standard long,my card is 7 1/2 "x 4".
A long standard envie is too long so will have to make an envie for this one.
I used some new papers I recently bought. The papers are Little yellow Bicycle.
When I saw this paper, I thought it would be great for masculine cards.
The green pattern paper is made using a ticket pass for the Macdonald bridge.
Who would have thought to see a paper made using something from
Nova Scotia.Here is a link to the MacDonald Bridge.
The bridge links Dartmouth to Halifax.
In some of my posts I have mention I have gone into the city to shop,this is where I go,its an hr away from me.

Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle
Stamps: Verve
Ink:SU and Memento
Accessories:Nesties,MA ribbon.Glitter pen.

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to check out the rest of the
MoJo Makers and see their wonderful creations.
I am off to clean my kitchen and then I am finish with all my cleaning.
I will have a clean spotless home for my guests.
I will be back posting regularly after next Monday.
Have a wonderful day!

# 1 Dad !

Another Monday and another MoJo Sketch.
Julee is really rockin the sketches.I don't know
where she finds time to do all she has to do,lol.
There is just not enough time for me lately to
get all I want done.
I have company coming from England and I am trying
to finish off my house cleaning.
Its DH's first cousin and his wife and I have never met them.
So rushing like crazy to get everything done.
I just redid my bathroom and wanted shower curtains
in a certain color and couldn't find them anywhere.
So now I am gonna make them and just have to find time to
get them done.
Eeeeek, time is running out, so much left to do.
I wonder why we put our selves thur this.
Needing to have everything perfect for company.

I decided to turn my card into a father's dad card.
I used my new stamps from Verve and some paper from SU.
Even with my fab new stamps, I still struggle with masculine cards.
I so wanted to add more, but think less is best.

Stamps: Verve
Paper: SU
Ink: Memento
Accessories:$store pearls.
