MOJO 102

Good Monday Morning!

I still have company.... They are still sleeping so shhhhhhh! I always wake up early and couldn't wait to see the Mojo sketch! It was a real challenge! I had to sneak into my studio and play! Do you know how loud your paper cutter is when everyone is sleeping? It screams and echoes! LOL! My card today was started on Gina K chocolate kiss luxury card stock. I layered with real red and merry moments dp. My focal image is dasher and the sentiment is from Christmas greetings. My snowflakes were cut with the cricket and in a stash! I hope to get some playtime after my company leaves!

Be sure and check here for Carol's new article in the Examiner!

Have yourself a great day!

Good Evening!

Bet your surprised to see me here this evening! I just had to post this card. The color challenge over at Stamp TV is orange, gray & white or vanilla! What a combo! I pouted all week...... just couldn't grasp the combination! Then I read the comments, I wasn't the only one who thought it would be a " challenge".... So I had to step up to the plate! LOL! I had this piece of card stock laying on my desk already embossed with the manhatten flower folder. I colored the roses with prisma color pencils and blended with OMS. I really like how they turned out! I layered my Gina K luxury white on some going gray card stock and there you have it! My gray, orange and white challenge card!

Have yourself a great evening!

Good Morning!

I have to say I had a blast with my family yesterday! We had most of our kids over for dinner.... just plain fun! I haven't laughed that much in a really long time! I also haven't made that much spaghetti in a really long time! Nor have I eaten that much spaghetti in a really long time! LOL!
Well onto my card.... Geri is the host of Potluck Friday Over at Stamp Tv. The challenge is to case one of the design teams work. What fun, so much to choose from! It took longer to find the card that I wanted to case than it did to make the card. I chose this card of Asela Hopkins. She does absolutely beautiful work, as does the rest of the design team! Her card is adorable! I kept the layout , changed the color pallet and theme! Asela has a Halloween theme, mine Christmas. I used two sets from SU called Tree Trimmings and Christmas Greetings. The dp is Merry Moments. All in all a pretty simple card!
My daughter and her following will be her for a short while this morning. So I will have to play in my studio in the afternoon!

Have yourself a great day!

Stinkin Cute!

Good Saturday Morning!

I hope your all having a great weekend! I had a HUGE surprise yesterday afternoon. My daughter,her honey and my 3 grandkids are on their way here! I am so excited! They moved about 6hrs away and this is the 1st time I've seen them in 2 months! Yea! *Big Grin* They used to live here and I saw them everyday.... So I've really missed them!
My card today is for the youngest of these 3! I made it quite awhile ago and was going to mail it! I have a card for each one! This card is a mish mash of stamps! I used SU's Stinkin Cute & Cute as a Bug and Scene in a Garden.... The card base is real red layered with whisper white and dp from a mat stack! I used glitter on the skunks tail! MY shapes were cut with nesties. Kylah will just love it!

Have yourself a GREAT Saturday!

Good Morning!

TGIF!!! It's been a crazy week! We are supposed to have temps near 100 today! How crazy is that! School starts next week and our summer is gone.....:( I never did understand why the kids have to go back to school just before labor day! They only go four days for the first two week of school! Sigh!

I cased this card of Ami Sheffers over at Pickled Paper Designs. If you aren't familiar with her work you should pop over there and take a look! She does gorgeous work! When I grow up I want to be as good as she is! ROTFLOL! (I will never grow up!). OK back to my card! My card base is Gina K luxury chocolate kiss, layered with very vanilla and DP from a mat stack. The Sentiment is from Verve. My buttons and lace are from my Mom in law! I cut my focal point with nesties and sponged with the die still attached.

I had no idea Mojo Monday had a sketch for today! Imagine my surprise when I stopped by Poetic Artistry and saw another Mojo card! Crunch time! I couldn't miss this after I had done the other 5 mojo's! So here it is, in record time! LOL!
Card base is Gina K luxury white, layered with not quiet navy and autumn traditions. God's Beauty and Oval All are the stamp sets I used.

Saffron Flower Lines

Good Saturday Morning!

I hope today finds you all well! I have a very short
day of work! Yea! We have a wedding to go to today!
It should prove to be a fun day!
I am happy to be back to my normal routine! Now I
will have time to critique my cards before I post them!
It was great fun to get up every morning to a new Mojo
sketch.... but I couldn't hold that pace up for long! It took
up all my coffee time!LOL!
My card today is done with the set Flower Lines from SU. it
is a level 3 hostess set. I embossed each flower before mounting them on the ovals. My ovals were simply punched with SU
punches. The DP (much better than yesterday's) is from Basic
Grey. The base is so saffron. All in all a pretty simple card!

Have yourself a great weekend!

Mojo 100 #5

Good Morning!

This is my submission for the Mojo 100 sketch challenge. I think this is the last one! It has been a long week! I'm not used to being creative first thing in the morning! It's like work! ekkkkkk! As you can tell I am not at my creative best in the wee hours! I do better on the weekends! Usually I make enough cards for the week over the weekend. At least I don't have to be to work early today! LOL!

Ok,to my card! I am not totally happy with this one! It's way to busy with the DP, in my opinion! Anyhoo..... I started with Gina K black for my card base. I layered with whisper white and rich razzelberry. I thought any card made with rich razzelberry would be awesome. Boy was I disappointed! LOL! My UGLY DP is from a matt stack. The focal point is from the Verve set Beautiful You. My bow, well what can I say.... I had swollen, fat, fumbling menopausal fingers this morning! ROTFLOL!

Have yourself a great day!

The Miracle of Christmas!

Good Sunday Morning!
Hope all is well with you today! I am really excited! I got my first set of stamps from Gina K yesterday! Jump up and down! Whoohoo!! I bought a set designed by Melanie Muenchinger called A year of flowers . I had used the set at my big sisters house. It's way more fun having my own! So my first card with the set had to be for a challenge on Stamp TV ! It's only right after all!The challenge I chose was the Potluck Friday Challenge.

The challenge goes like this:

One-Two-Three-Four Recipe:

1 or more designer paper
2 or more different types of bling
3 or more pastel colors
4 or more layers

My card was stamped using the poinsettia from A year in flowers. I embossed with glitter EP. I added a few pearls, and stickles for my bling. The rest is pretty straight forward. The DP has the 3 pastel colors, and there are 6 layers. There you have it!

I really like how this turned out! I wasn't sure using pastels for a Christmas card would work, but it turned out fine! LOL! I'm looking forward to using this set a lot more! Can't wait to get more Gina K stamps! LOL!!

Have a great weekend!

Good Morning!

How is everyone out there today? I'm hoping to have a very productive day! Hope I'll be super busy at work so my day flys by! I need to get home and play in my studio!
I have to tell you a funny story! I started stamping almost 2 years ago. My sister made me! She always makes me do things!! Hee Hee! Thanks Terri! LOL!! Any hoo, back to my story. For the most part I have been self taught! Don't get me wrong Carol and Terri are great mentors! They have taught me a lot. However we live 8hrs away from each other. Well when I first started stamping I found these cute little reindeer at All that Scraps. Loved the little fellas! I ordered them and was so excited. Well when they came, they were just the foam backed rubber.... What the heck, where is the wood mount? I had nooooo idea what to do with them!! ROTFLOL!! You can LOL if you want!
My card today is one of those cute little reindeer! Isn't he cute? I colored his body with Prisma color pencils and OMS. His bright nose was done with a marker and crystal effects! My DP is retired Ski Slope. It's almost gone :( My sketch is for the sketch challenge at Splitcoasters.

Flight of the Butterfly!

Good Morning!

I bought the ribbon I used on this card about six months ago.I have tried and tried to build a card around it! Finally I did it! I needed inspiration though! My friend Betty at Stamp TV made this card that got my mojo goin! I kinda kept her layout! Really that's about all! When I first started the case I had no idea this is where I would end up! I had no idea I would get to use my ribbon! Yea! My card base is Gina K pure luxury chocolate brown ( thanks Terri )! I then layered with whisper white and pink pirouette. My pink pirouette was run through the big shot with swiss dot ef. I punched out chocolate with my scallop square punch and layered again with pink pirouette. My brown butterflies were stamped right on the pink pirouette and the white ones stamped and cut out. I love how this card turned out!

Good Morning All!

I have a very busy day ahead of me. Typically the 2nd weekend in August is Pinehurst Days! Our little town has maybe 1000 people in it. Every summer vendors, old cars , yard sales, and lots of food line the main street in town. My business is at the entrance of town and we have a huge yard sale in my parking lot! Several of my clients bring all their junk and put it with all my junk and we spend the day trading junk!! LOL! Actually we do a pretty good business gettin rid of our junk!

My post today is a cover to a 6x6 scrapbook. In our club the hostess of the month will bring a recipe and we will build a scrapbook page around it! I did the cover with the SU set Voila. I stamped and paper pieced my chef with Thoroughly Modern DP. He turned out pretty cute don't you think? It's a pretty simple layout, but cute all the same!

Well I'm off ..... to hopefully get rid of lots of junk! Wish me luck!

Mojo Monday

Good Morning!

How is everyone out there in cyber space? We are home from down south! We had a great time, but it's always nice to get home! My internet is way faster from my chair than it was at the motel! Patience is not my long suit! LOL! My DH played golf with my brother in-law Sunday and had a great time. Well except for the mosquitoes! They ate him alive.... So at 11:30 pm he was wide awake and itching. Guess what? We got up and headed home! We were home by 6:00 this morning! When the young man who was caring for our dogs showed up, we almost shocked the pants right off of him !! Hee Hee !!

It was really nice to get into my studio! I usually do most of my stamping over the weekend. First thing, I had to check the Mojo Monday sketch! It's my fav.! I changed it up a little.... Flipped the sketch, and didn't use the circle. I cut out my rose instead and covered it with vellum. This is the first time I've used vellum. I think I like it! My card base is Mellow Moss, layered with Whisper White. The DP is from my scraps. The rose itself was stamped and embossed by Betty Benton. She is such a love! Thanks Betty! I colored it with Prisma color pencils and oms. I think this card turned out pretty good considering all the sleep deprivation I'm suffering from! LOL!!

Have yourself a great day!

This card was really fun to make with her in mind! These lovely ladies are from The Oldies collection over at Art Impressions. They have a variety of these that are just to funny! I dressed the ladies with Prisma color pencils and oms. I tattooed and pierced, that's what the oldies look like now! I added my own sentiment " I hear she's 60" . I can hardly wait till the surprise party!

You have yourself a great day!
