Birthday Wishes Squared

Hi again and welcome to another MoJo MOnday.
Todays sketch is fun, it can be round or square, or if your MoJo is very creative, then you can do both.
I was gonna do both but time ran out , I've had a very hetic week at work and all weekend I've been spring cleaning.I got a lot accomplished and a lot of purging
as well.I can't believe how much junk you can collect.
I have a few birthdays coming up and I am stock piling my birthday cards.
For my card I pulled out some Cosmo Cricket from my scrap pile.I made a resolution to take from my scrap pile , but lately I haven't been doing that.
So good to go thru and pick a few pieces ,and actually create a card from it.

Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Stamps: Verve
Ink: Memento
Accessories:Scallop Circle nesties, Offray ribbon, glitter pen.

Hi everyone and welcome to another Stamptacular Sunday.
Todays challenge is to create a card with
oodles and oodles of flowers and only use bright and cheery spring colors!
I fell short not following the challenge. I should have read all of it.
As I am writing up this post , I just realized I should have used bright spring colors.Funny part was, I did have bright colors choosen to use and couldn't get it to work for me, so yank out these colors from my scrap bin.Oh well,too
late to redo over, so gonna post my card anyway,lol.

I used up scraps of Crate paper and the new Verve stamps.
stamped and embossed them several times and then cut and pop dotted.
Added a few rhinestones, some ribbon and made it a birthday card.

Be sure to check out Stamptacular, the sponsor for this week is me again.
I am giving away another stamp set.
So be sure to take part and check out the team for their awesome creations.

Praying for You.........MoJo131

Hi and welcome back to another MoJo Monday.
Todays sketch was created by me ......a long card.
Since Julee is so busy ,some of the team have been helping her out with
designing some sketches.
Its so fun trying to come up with a sketch.When I drew this one, I thought it would be fairly easy, but when I sat down to make my card, I was puzzled with what I was gonna put in the 3 panels in the center.So I settled on using a image in the center panel and filling the other 2 with pattern paper.

Accessories; Offray ribbon, MM pearls, Nesties fancy labels.

The past week was very hetic for me with my work schedule, but this week its back to normal again and more time to play in my room,lol.
My birthday was on Friday gone, and DH spoiled me again,lol.
He got me several MS punches and all the new Nestie Labels.
Bought me lobster on Sat. and then took me out to dinner on Sunday.
He is a keeper for sure,lol.

Thank you all for visiting my blog, I love reading all your comments.

Hi everyone, welcome to Stamptacular Sunday.
The challenge for today create a card with a scene.
So here is my card using some Magnolia images some one had raked to me.
SO sorry , I have no idea who it was, since it was quite some time ago.
I paired the images with My MInds Eye paper and some Verve stamps.

So sorry my post is short but its kinda late here and I have to work today, SUnday.
Its my week where I work all weekend, right into Sunday and so little time for anything this weekend.I know I should have my challenges done ahead of time but that never seems to happen and I find I do my best work at short notice,lol.
I will try to get back and edit my post with all the details.
I had promise a giveaway for my Birthday, which was on Friday and haven't had time to do the post.
I had ordered some stamps for my giveaway and since I still don't have them, but hopefully will have them before the week is out.
Here is what I am proposing to do.
My Blogoversary is coming up on the 2nd of April , which is just a couple of weeks away. I will do a couple of giveaways then instead.
I hope I didn't disappoint anybody, but I promise you will like what I am proposing to do.So stay tuned for all the details.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
DH is taking me out for dinner after work for my birthday.

Sugar Creek Hollow....Who's got the button...

Hi everyone and welcome back.
Today is Fabulous Friday on Sugar Creek its Freebie Friday,
which means we give away Free Digis.
Who doesn't love freebies.....
OUr challenge for the team today was to use Buttons.
Since I had this card already started and all it needed was the embellies.
I used it for my button card.
The image I used was one of the Cameos.This image would be available
till April 1st.
Since I had the gold pearls on this card, I searched thru my stash and found these gold colored buttons.I've had them for some time and thought they would look good with my card.

On this card I printed off the image twice on cream CS, cut one of the images
out so I cut use just the frame.Added a piece of acetate under the frame to
give it depth.I also printed the image on the pattern paper, cut and glued to the image.Added a pearl to the neckline.Added some glitter and pearls to the frame.

Be sure to check out what our team has created.
