Mojo 387

Good day everyone!

Another fabulous week over at Mojo Monday! I haven't got a chance to do a mojo in a few weeks but last night I was able to whip up a quick Mojo.

So I was able to get together a baby card for the family last night.

Supplies: Brown cardstock,  My minds Eye and Graphic 45 designer paper (sorry got a mix going on there)
Stamps: "Emery" and " To the moon" VERVE stamps,  Misc ribbon and rhinestones.

Thank you for stopping in, and  Have a wonderful week!

Thinking of you!

Happy Sunday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend I know I did the other half was away so it was nice to have the house to myself in the evenings...I unlike most people don't mind when I get to have the house to myself once the kids have gone to bed.
I was able to complete a card I had started a couple of days ago, such a simple card but I struggled with it for a bit. I used a sketch that one of our local stores Memory Junction had put up for there monthly sketch challenge. It is not one she had created on her own but rather one she put out for inspiration.

Supplies: Bazzill cardstock, "feelin Groovy"-We R memory keepers, Large flowers "Always"-Stampin up set, Small flowers Recollections punch, Carta Bella die, "thinking of you" Kind words- Verve, Misc buttons.

I hope you all had a great weekend!  Thank you for stopping in!

Family challenge!

Good Morning!!!

This was a family challenge that was put out by Nina which was using scraps. I went with a simple layout.....tried to do something a little more complex but it just wasn't working out so I took the easy road.
As many of you may notice I was a little short on some of my strips but I rolled with it anyways.
I bought some color spritzers on the weekend and thought I would try it on my card, the color didn't show up quite like I thought it would. It was my first time trying to use the spritz technique so I'm sure I will get better at using it.

Be sure to stop in and check out what the other ladies have created.

Supplies: brown card stock, patterned paper from SEI paper pad-Dill Blossom, sentiment "Amazing wishes" Verve stamp, flowers stamped using "Discover your wings " Taylored Expressions.

Thank you for stopping by hope you are having a great week!

Mojo 382

Good morning & happy Friday!!!

Finally I had sometime yesterday to get and sit and create a Mojo card for this week. I have to say I really enjoyed this sketch this week and I like the skinny card. I bought this new paper the other day and I really enjoyed working with these prints.

Overall I am extremely happy with this card and have plans to make a few others with this layout but using the other designs that coordinate with this paper.

Again I apologize as I haven't gotten my supplies list together yet but I will get it up and posted later today.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!

Mojo 381


This is attempt number 2 on this weeks Mojo, I think with the first I made some bad paper choices so I was not happy with the first card I made. So I had a little time yesterday to attempt another and I am much happier with this one.

Supplies used for this card are MME paper pads Gertie/Hazel, MME bakers twine, Misc button and I stamped the flowers and saying with stamps from "kind words" by VERVE.

Thank you for stopping by!

Friday Mashup 193

Good morning!

This challenge is a first time for me but I had my mom suggesting I give it a try as it was a really neat technique they were using for this challenge. So I watched the tutorial and thought I would give it a try. I have to say so simple and such a great way to make some really cool cards. I think if I were to do another I would make less of a border with my cardstock for the base layers. Anyhow I attempted two cards and stayed with the same layout that was shown in the tutorial.

This week's Mashup Challenge is:

  • Create a project with the "Triple Layer Technique" Tutorial HERE.
  • Create a project that's "Floral". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Floral Triple Layer Project"

 So those were my two attempts I did one with the same tones and another with some color to try and add some pop to the card. Overall I was happy with the cards but this is definitely a technique I would like to keep trying until I get one I am extremely happy with.

Supplies used on the first card was cardstock from Michaels, Flowers stamped with stamps from  "Eastern blooms" SU, Whisps things stamp from "Priceless" SU, Memento-Toffee crunch, & Rich Cocoa, "Thinking of you" Kinds words stamp set from Verve, Misc twine, button and raspberry chalk ink.

2nd card: Stamps used were from the Priceless stamp set from SU, misc cardstock, twine and button.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are having a great day!

Well I had sometime last night to sit down and create a card after I got my little munchkins to bed. I find it hard to find time to get to my blog and post....funny how the little things are the hardest to get to sometimes. Anyhow the girls at Mojo Monday put out a nice simple challenge this week so I didn't find it to difficult to be able to create something.

Here is the sketch they put out for us this week

Supplies: MME Mabel paper pad, Stamped flower from VERVE "Amazing Wishes", Stamped saying from VERVE " Kind words", & Asst brad, and I added some watercolor paints to the flowers.
Thanks again for stopping in and I hope everyone is having a great week!

Merry Monday 140

Good Morning!

Well this is the first for me I decided this week I would join in the fun over at Merry Monday for this weeks challenge. I found myself wanting to hand out handmade Christmas cards this past Christmas and I just didn't have any to give....I suppose it doesn't help that its been 3 years since I have created one. Anyhow here was the challenge for this week:

         Create a Christmas card using SNOWFLAKES! Have fun!
 Again I do apologize that I don't currently have the supplies list but will get it up ASAP!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are having a fabulous day!

Mojo Monday 379

Good Evening!

Well I had some time Monday to sit and make a Mojo card for this weeks challenge. Unfortunately my computer wasn't running properly so I was unable to get it posted until tonight. It felt good to get a chance to create a card.....was hard to believe it has almost been 3 years since I have been able to make a card. I will admit I felt a little rusty starting this card but I think overall I am happy with the way it turned out. Well enough with my blah blah blah here is the sketch and my card.

Here is what I came up with
I do apologize I do not have a supplies list put together yet but will get it up ASAP.

Thank you for stopping by and please stop by again soon as I do have another card to post.

Happy New Year!

Good Morning! Well it has been a long time since I've got to put anything up on here. It's a New Year and just wanting to let you know I am hoping to get back into card making and posting my creations for you.
It has been a whirl wind since I was last on, I had another baby who is now 16 months old and I think he was born with some energizers...LOL. He keeps me more then busy, I'm not sure he knows how to stop. Anyhow just wanted to let you all know I hope to be creating again and sharing with all of you!

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!
