Got my Mojo Goin' On!


This is my very first Mojo Monday challenge. Although not the last! I love the sketches from Mojo Monday. ALL of them! I just never get a chance to do them in time. Plus I only discovered them just a few weeks ago. And you know what's really neat to me? I had a dog named Mojo. He was THE coolest dog ever. My "Mojo" came from the song by The Doors, "Mr. Mojo Risin". I was a huge fan waaay back in high school.

Anyway, onto the card. Which I can't believe I was able to make TWO whole cards today. It's really amazing. I can go weeks without making any cards. So today was a happy card making day! I love using my sewing machine on my cards. I use it on my scrapbook pages too and the effect is just so pretty.

I'm counting down the hours until the Verve Release. I just bought a couple sets last week and I am IN LOVE with these stamps. They stamp so nicely and I love the fonts and images. I just know it's going to be my next obsession.

Stamps: Sugar Nellies Sweet & Sassy, Verve sentiment
Ink: Versafine Black, Palette Brown
Paper: PTI Summer Sunrise, SU Lavender Lace, Chatterbox Patterned Paper
Misc: Clear EP, Machine Sewing, Piercing, SU Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Copics

Verve and Flourishes Challenges


Today I was able to stamp. Woohoo! I took the girls to the park in the morning so they could get rid of some of their energy. We played freeze tag and monkey bars. Boy am I old. I had to keep stopping and taking breaks. But it sure was fun! And so at M's naptime I was able to whip out this card. I used the Verve March Release sketch and used the Flourishes Challenge Getting Sentimental to make a sentiment the focal point. Sorry, I just can't stay away from pink!!! I promise my next card will NOT be pink.

Recently, I've started to get away from SU. There are so many other stamping companies out there that are just calling my name. I have a teeny tiny monthly budget for my addiction, er hobby, and so most of my money has gone to SU in the past. Now I am super excited to expand my collection of stamps from various companies. I am really looking foward to the March releases of Verve and Flourishes!

Ink: SU Pretty in Pink, Pomegranate
