MoJo 188........Round or Square

Good MoJo Monday to you all and Happy Easter.

I had a wonderful Easter with my family.

DH and I went to my daughter's place , where all

my family was visiting.

I got to spend some quality time with my

beautiful GD.

Todays MoJo sketch is round or square and it was

designed by Me.

I was gonna make a round card also but time seem

to have gotten away from me this past weekend.

But if you are feeling inspired, then try both.

For my card I used some of this yummy paper

I found over the weekend

from MME "Stella & Rose"

I also used Crown Circles nesties, a MS border punch,

Verve sentiment, Recollections flowers, some ribbon

from my stash.

Be sure to check in on the rest of the

MoJo Makers for their awesome creations.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Just For You.......MoJo187

Hi and welcome back to another MoJo Monday.

Today's sketch was designed by Maria.

Its such an awesome sketch, one I will surely use again.

For my card I used some SU paper I've had for over a year.

I don't know why I didn't use it before.

The paper is so sparkly.

I paired it up with some SU cs in pink and whisper white.

Added a recollection flower, some yummy pink ribbon from M's, I found in the dollar bin.

MS border punch, CB swiss dots EBfolder, nestie scallop circle and tags.

Verve stamps.

Be sure to check out the rest of the MoJo team for their awesome creations.

Have a wonderful Monday.

I am off and gonna spend it with my DH , who is on vacation.


Hi , Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I had to work all weekend again.

Will be so glad to have a long weekend coming up.

Here are 2 cards I entered for Get your Diva on Challenge.

Amber hosted this challenge and it was a recipe challenge.

This was the first time I did a challenge like that.

My recipe called to use Green, Pink and Yellow.

Long card, rhinestones, lace and glitter.

You also had a choice to swap out one of the categories.

I opted to switch out the colors for my first card.

For this card I used the color category Turquoise, Brown & Pink, with Blush papers from BG.I added the lacey flower, some rhinsetones and

added some glitter to my card.

For this card I used everything my recipe called for .

I was imtimidated with the colors at first and which was why

I did the first card.

But while making my first card, I was still thinking of ,green, yellow and pink ,and then I got the idea what to make with these colors.

I used some yellow paper form SU along with matching CS.

I used a nestie frame to pop out the window and then did some lattice work to it.I popped it up some to give dimension.

Added the lacey flower, glittery butterfly, some pink rhinestones.

Some yellow ribbon. Punched some green leaves with MS punch

and my card was done.

Overall , I was pleased with how it looked.

Looking at the cards that was entered, I am up against some strong

competition. Wish me luck!

Have a wonderful night.

I will be back in the morning with my MoJo card!

Mom ..........MoJo185

Hi and welcome back to another MoJo Monday. Since this is the first Monday of the month, that means its contest time. And for Contest time Julee gives away some Verve. Who doesn't love some Verve! The Prizes: We'll have one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of SEVEN winners!!! Winners will receive the Verve Stamps set of their choice. This is my card for this week. I loved this sketch but it had me stumped for a bit. Maybe because I didn't have much time to work on it. I worked all week and right into this past weekend and did a shift on Sunday as well.So when it came time to work on my sketch ,I just worked with the papers I still had on my desk from SU. I also had this new punch from MS "Bangle Trim Punch" setting on my desk begging to be used,lol. After I punched a strip of paper, I couldn't seem to make it work . So rather than not use it, I placed it behind my top layer and let a bit of it peek out. Then I couldn't seem to make anything work for the scallop circle on the sketch and went searching for something to use. I found this ribbon flower I had purchased at M's some time ago, pulled off all the beads and placed a prima flower in center. Found a piece of MA ribbon that matched perfectly , then added some bling and voila , here is my card. I was pleased with how it turned out on so little time! Be sure to check out the rest of the MoJo Makers for their awesome creations. Thank you for visiting, I love to hear your comments. Have a wonderful Monday. I will be back later tonight to announce the winner of my Blogoversary!
