Love Basket..................MoJo176

Hi MoJo Fans and welcome back.
Todays MoJo sketch is the last one for the month and
Julee changes it up a bit by giving us a square or round card.
And if you are really inspired, you can do both.
I opted to do the square.

My square card came together by using up some of the same
papers and flowers I had choosen for my basket below.
Since I had my basket just about done, except for the decorating
part,I decided to make my card match.After having the base done for my
card, I felt it needed something to dress it up a bit .
So I went looking for something and I found these lace paper doilies.
Since I had used one on my card, I then had to put one on my basket,lol.

The template for the basket is from Lauren Meader and
can be found >>>>>>>Here

I was very pleased with this project.

VLVJan2011 ...Week 3 & 4

Hi, I am back again with week 2 & 3 sketches from VLV.
I've had fun with these sketches.
For week 3 , I tried to go masculine with my card , and
I am not sure I succeeded. I find it so hard to go masculine,
as I want to pretty it up with ribbon and embellies.
I relented and had to add some jute to my card.
But the card still seems so plain to me,lol.

Week 3 sketch by Tosh;

I also covered a candy bar with the same paper.
I also used my new Verve stamps. I am so in love with this set.
I love all the sentiments and everything else with this set.

This card is for week 4 and I so love it .
I love all the red & white and that cute little
monkey and sentiment from Verve.

Week 4 by Sankari:

Another Candy bar I covered to match my card.
I so love the big red bow on this.

Feels so good to be creating again and taking part in challenges.
I have several more projects done, which I will show you all
I usually make a lot of Valentine cards and treats.
I take them into work and sell them to all the guys.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day.

VLVJan2011 ...Week 1 & 2

Hi everyone,I am so glad to be back taking part
in challenges again and posting on a regular basis.
I was off yesterday and it was so so cold here yesterday.
I believe it to be the coldest day this winter.
Since it was so cold to do any thing else, I spent it in my scrap room
creating galore. I have many cards and projects to show you all week.
Today I am posting 2 of the VLVJan2011 sketch challenges.

Week 1 card by Amber.
I love long cards but don't make them very often.
I love the layout of this card .
I am using Verve stamps and some paper from "MY Minds Eye"
I've had this paper for awhile and sorta forgot I had it ,lol.
You be surprise what you find when you go digging thru your papers.
I am using my MS Heart border punch again.

Week 2 card by Charmaine
This card is using more of the same paper from the same
pack, plus Verve stamps again. I love my Verve stamps!
Again I am using the same border punch.I told you ,you would be seeing this border punch I so love it.

I am off to work in a bit. Have a wonderful day.
I'll be back tomorrow with the other 2 VLV sketches for Jan.
Thanks for visiting.

Valentine Hugs and Kisses....Mojo 175

Hi again peeps and welcome to another MoJo Monday.

Todays sketch is another fun one.
For my card I used some yummy paper from BoBunny.
I also used my MS valentine heart border punch.
I am loving this punch and you will see it more in the next few days.
I seem to keep reaching for it.I believe the reason I use it so much , is
because when you punch with it, the hearts are right side up on the
layer you punch.

I also made this darling little purse to go along with my card.
I found a tut for it here>>>> Gift card Purse
I put in some hershey kisses instead.You can filled it with what ever you want.


Isn't this so cute?I will be making a few more of these.
Takes so very little time to make.
Thanks for visiting and be sure to check out the rest of the team
for their awesome MoJo crestions.Have a wonderful Monday.
I am off today and working on more Valentine projects, which I will share shortly.

Bundle Of Love .....DiaperCake & Wreath

Hi everyone, I took the Diva Dare over at Verve.

I have been wanting to make one of these Diaper cakes since I started seeing them pop up over at SCS some time ago.But didn't know anyone that was preggie .
Then one of the women at my store was preggie and I knew that I had to make a cake for her.
Her baby shower was this past Sunday, she is due to have her baby by C-section on Feb 8th.She knows its gonna be a boy, so I decided to go with a green and blue layout.
Since I knew this was what I was gonna make for awhile now, I started looking for things in blue and green to match.Over several weeks I found
things in the dollar bins, so as not to make it too too expensive.

So next I googled several tuts on how to create this cake,
and I came across this tut by Susan>>>>>>DiaperCake Tut
Susan's tut was so easy to follow.

While searching for the Diaper Cake Tut, I came across the
wreath and of course I had to try this as well.
I found a tut here >>>>> Dipaer Wreath
I just sorta did my own thing with this.
I folded my dipers in half the long ways before securing the the wreath.
I also used a wire ring I found at M's which I got for $2.

After making the cake and wreath, I went on a search for some paper
to match and I was amazed to find this paper in my stash from BG.
It matched perfectly and I knew I wanted to make the onesie card.
You can find Laurens tut here>>>>>Onesie Card
I used Verve's Practically Perfect set for the Bundle Of Love sentiment.

Inside of card

It seems like a lot of work, but it only took me about
3 hrs to make it all.So easy when you have everything you want to use in front of you.

The Cake and Wreath was a huge success at the shower.
Everyone wanted to know how I made it and how long it took,lol.

I hope you take The Diva Dare.
Have a wonderful day.

Hugs & Kissess..............MoJo174

Hi MoJo Fans and welcome back to another MoJo Monday.
Todays MoJo sketch is fun.
I used some MM paper I've had since forever. I just love this paper and
sad to say I only have a few scraps left.
I also used a couple of Verve's older Valentines stamps set.
I stamped the heart off first on scrap paper and then again on my card,
and then stamped the Hugs & Kisses over it .Love using this technique.

We have 2 new talented Makers joining us.Debbie Carriere & Stephanie Kraft.So be sure to check all the Mojo Makers for their awesome creations.
I will be back later to upload a very special creation I made over the weekend.
Edit to add.

My card seem to fit the challenge.
Have a wonderful MOnday.

Be Mine.........MoJo172

Hello MoJo fans and welcome to another MoJo Monday.
Today is the first Monday of the month and that means its
contest time.That means prizes!!
We'll have one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of SIX winners!!! Winners will receive the Verve Stamps set of their choice. Verve will be releasing new sets this Friday, Jan 7, so there will be even more to choose from!
I can't wait to see the new releases.
Since Valentine's is around the corner I decided to go that route, with this awesome sketch.I wanted my card to have bling and wanted to use this glitter cardstock
I've had for a few yrs .I couldn't find any Cs in my pile to match the glitter
cs ,so I made my base from it as well.
Pulled out a Verve valentine set from last yr called Hearts desire.
I stamped the heart and then cut it out and added some glitter to it to match all the bling on my card, then popped it up.

Be sure to check out rest of the MoJo team
for their awesome creations!
Have a wonderful Monday!
