Weaving....with ribbon!!

Weaving with Stamptacular.......
The challenge for this week ... to create a project that incorporates weaving
When I saw what the challenge was for this week, I was afraid it was gonna be time consuming and hard to do. I wasn't sure what to make, so when I am stuck , I always go to SCS and do a search and this is what I found.
I saw a card on there with this ribbon weaving and it lead me to this site for a tut on >>>>>>Ribbon Weaving
It was so easy and fast to do.I created a wreath with my weaving, added a bow and some rhinestones and .....Voila !
After having the wreath made, I searched thru my papers and found this sheet of PP from SandyLion.I've had this paper for some time and it matched my wreath perfect.The berries on the paper was a little dull, so I highlighted them a little with a Tombow marker.
I used a Fancy Tags for my sentiment.
I borrowed the tags from my friend( Thank You Kathy), since I done have them yet.
I have them on order and hopefully have them soon.

Stamps:Clear stamps
Ink: SU
Accessories:Offray ribbon, $store rhinestones,Circle nesties,rectangle nesties.

The sponsor for this week is Sassy Studio Designs with four
images of winners choice.How cool is that.
We also have another sponsor....Emma with Stampin-up,
She is giving away... Stampin' Up Tall Tales 12" Designer Paper Pack.

So get your mojo going and let us see what you can do with weaving.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Star Of Wonder......

Welcome back to MoJo Monday and a sketch to kick start your week.
Julee has designed another awesome sketch.
I found this sheet of shimmer cardstock in my pile, I believe it maybe
Bazzill, and decided to work with it. I kept my card very simple to show case the star.I added a few pearls and some white ribbon to finish it off.
I seldom keep my cards so simple, but with the shimmer CS, I didn't want to cover it up. I am loving the look of it.
I embossed the star and sentiment with white EMP.

Paper: Bazzill shimmer CS
Stamps: Verve
Ink: Versamark
Accessories:Ranger EBP, Offray ribbon, MM pearls,MS border punch.
Thank you for visiting. I love to hear your comments.
Be sure to check out the rest of my fellow MoJo Makers for their wonderful creations.
Have a wonderful Monday.
I will be back later with a few projects I am working on.

This card reminds me of the beautiful fall weather we are having.
All the beautiful color leaves falling and the beautiful warm temps.
The month of Nov. has beem gorgeous with temps in the high teens.
I can handle a fall like this. I hope the winter is as good,since we had a short summer.

The papers in this book are awesome, they are all very shinny.
It doesn't show up very well in the pics.

the OCC color challenge this week as well.How cool is that, 1 card and 3 challenges done.

O Christmas Tree.....MoJo Style

Welcome back to another MoJo Monday and another
wonderful sketch our fab leader has designed.
I don't know how Julee does it all, designing stamps and sketches.
I used my Verve stamps from the last release and I have to say they are
awesome.So many wonderful stamps to create Christams cards with.
I find myself reaching for Verve stamps all the time and the rest of my stamps never see ink,lol.
For this card I had fun playing with glitter, you should my desk, everything
is covered with it,lol.
I stamped the tree in Old Olive ink on some very vanilla CS, added some glue and then sprinkled some MS glitter over it and put it aside to dry while working on the rest of the card.I just love all the sparkles on this card. The pic doesn't do it justice.


Paper: SU
Stamps: Verve
Accessories:MM rhinestones, MS glitter, MS border punch, Ciricle nesties,
Sheer ribbon from my stash,CB snowflake EB folder.

Happy Birthday Mom !

Hi every one,Here is a set I made for my DMIL for her birthday
in Oct.I am just getting around to posting it.
It seems I have been bitten by the bug to make more than a card lately.
I am having fun thinking outside the box and coming up with different
projects for some very special people.
My DMIL turned 85 and what do you get for someone that age?
She is still very active and lives by herself.
Since she loves chocolate, I made her a little treat basket and filled it with little Hersey chocolate bars.I made a little gift card holder and gave her a gift card to her favorite place to eat.
She goes there most every Sunday after Church with all the ladies from her
DH and I also took her for dinner on her birthday as well.
She loves going out to eat.



I used this sketch >>>SC243 for the card.
I found the basket on SCS and thought I had saved the link.
But I can't seem to find it anywhere, I even searched SCs but no luck.
I believe the gift card holder came from SCS as well.
If anyone knows the links,please let me know and I can linked them up.
Stamps: Verve
Ink: Memento
Accessories:Offray ribbon, MS border punch,MM rhinestone brads.

Thanks for stopping by. Please visit again. I have a couple more projects ready to upload as well.

Coffee & Friends with..............Stamptacular !

Welcome back to Stamptacular .
The challenge this week is "Friendship".
You have to create a card for a friend plus there is a catch...
you have to create your own background pattern paper or cardstock
and use it on your card.
I think I fell short on this challenge this week.I didn't see the background
part till I was writing this up,lol.Pays to read everything,lol.
Actually I would have been ok if I had posted the project I was working on.
Believe it or not I did do something with the background, not knowing that it was a requirement,lol.But it didn't work out the way I had planned it , so I put it aside and did this card , as I was running late with the challenge.
Hopefully I can salvage some of it and post at a later date.
For this card I did sponge some ink on the main panel.

Paper: SU
Accessories:MA ribbon,$store gems,MS border punch.

The prize for this weeks challenge is a Cuttlebug folder donated by Liza.
You will have from now until midnight (EST) November 7th, 2009 to complete this challenge and post a DIRECT LINK to your submission into our Mr. Linky in order to be entered into the drawing for this week's fabulous prize .
