Season's Greetings...

Hi MoJo Peeps, its time for another MoJo Monday, and my 1st christmas card for this year.I don't believe I have ever started my Christmas cards this early.
This sketch was a bit trickie for me. It really had me
challenging my MoJo , but then that is why its called a challenge,lol.
I couldn't decide what to put in the panels on the left, so I used the ribbon
bow as one of the panels.After I had the ornament stamped , it was too big for
my circles, so I went rectangular.

Stamps: Verve
Ink: SU
Accessories:Offray ribbon, K&Co pearls,Provocraft snowflake,glitter pen
Su ticket punch.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you all take part. I love to see everyone's creations. Please check out my fellow MoJo Makers for their awesome

Coffee tastes better with OCCC &CC233 !

Coffee tastes better with a friend and also with OCCC and CC233.
The first card is for the color challenge CC233 on SCS,which was to use
Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Kraft.
I had the craft color and use the closest I had for the other 2 colors.
We could also use a neutral color, so I used a creamy white.
When I saw this color challenge, I just had to make a card with it. I so love the colors together.This may be my new fav colors,lol.

I used an older Mojo Sketch for this card and I am pleased with how it turned out.I also used stamps from Flourishes. I figured I start using more of the stamps I have been ignoring.I stamped the cup on the red CS and cut it out and popped it up.Added some glitter around the cup with a Sakura glitter pen.
Pierced around the top half of the card.

Paper:Heidi grace
Accessories:Offray ribbon, K & Co pearls,Octagon nesties,MS border punch,
Glitter pen, Piercing tool.


For this card I used Jen's awesome sketch and the OCCC challenge,
which was to use the new in colors of SU.
I didn't have any of the new colors and went with colors that I thought was close
by comparing it to the colors in the book.
I embossed the brown and the dusty pink color using a CB folder.
Stamped the mug and cut it out and glued it.
Paper: Cardstock
Accessories:Offray ribbon,$store pearls,Glitter pen,K& Co. metal ,CB embossing folder.

Car cruise.
The weather was gorgeous and we had an awesome turn out.
Later that evening we went out to the dance with the members from
the club.Was late getting home and had to be up very early on Sunday
for our Car show.It was the biggest Show and Shine for the club .
The weather again was gorgeous and so hot(over 100 F).
To finish off an Hot afternoon, we went to a friends house from the club and
spent the rest of the evening in the pool to cool off and then had a wonderful
BBQ and then played some Lawn darts.BY the time I got home, I was so tired (a good Tired), we just went to bed.

I have been very busy at work and at home.I have been busy creating
in my happy room.So please keep checking back and see what I have
been up to.
I've combined a couple of challenges.
I used an inspiration piece from OCC and Jen's sketch.
I took the colors and the harvest theme and this is my creation.

I stamped the acorn and pumpkins on orange pattern paper and then cut
them out . I added some sparkle with a glitter pen.I pop dotted a couple and glued the rest.Punched a couple layers with MS border punch and then layered them.
Paper: BG
Ink: Memento
Accessories:Sheer ribbon(unknown),MS branch punch,MS border punch,glitter
This next card is for a challenge that Charmaine is doing for the Verve
2nd Anniversary.She is doing a giveaway and the card has to be Sweet and Simple one layer card.This was much harder than I thought,lol since I love working with layers.
You should see my desk from all the cards I scrapped,lol.
I started with a piece of white card stock , used Spellbinders ' Fleur De Lis'
borders and Pendants dies.I die cutted the pendant and then put it back
in the center with some adhesive pearls.I embossed the pendant on the inside.
I embossed a couple of lines using my score it.Added some sheer ribbon.
Paper;Bazzill CS
Ink: Memento
Accessories: Pendants and borderabilities from Spellbinders,BG pearls, MA ribbon,BOw Maker.
