Mojo Monday (  had a good challenge today..different from the normal cards I create, in that it was a long card. So I found my papers..all from DCWV latte stack, and stamped my bella to adhere to the card. I coloured her with my copics, and added a bit of sparkle using my copic spica pens! I used a little bit of purple ribbon, and stampin ups scallop oval punch to finish it off! I hope you like it, I am very pleased with this card!!!

Advertisements had the following sketch : and beside it is my card, based on the sketch. I used my cute magnolia birthday wish stamp, copics and stickles to colour, dp from my scrap stash for the square, bazzill in butter yellow for the oval, adhesive pearls for accents, old vintage lace from the thrift store, and my sentiment is from my favorite things.  I love this card, I think I’m back in my creative groove! love and hugs, and please comment, I love hearing feedback!

Happy Scrappy Days,

Cath  has this awesome sketc today!! 2s4y  also has an awesome sketch to work with today!! Mojo110Sketch


I am going to try my hand at these 2 sketches and see what comes of them.. if my son is still napping at the end of these 2, I will attempt some the mean time OFF I GO! 🙂

ANd I realize that today is Thursday, but I did get Mojo Monday f rom the blog done today… Thursday! Better late than never right???


So I started with DCWV Christmas Cardstock as the base, and then layered it up.. I found this holly like paper in a stack of sizzix paper I have, called little sizzles, that I have not used since banishing my sizzix to the garage sale.. then layered that with some fun christmas coloured patterned paper, then MORE layering with the happy holidays stamp on whisper white, and matted on the DCWV cardstock in the same green, and then I used my water colour pen to colour in the happy, and added some stickles to the star and the ornaments on the stamp *Big on Christmas* stampin up set, and then a poinsetta from *Season of Joy* stampin up on red bazzil, cut out, and stickled the center…2 silver branches cut from the martha stewart branch punch, and some silver ribbon. PHEW I think thats everything!

Mojo Monday card! had a sketch (see post below!) and this is my attempt!

park-pages 061 has a colour challenge of teal and red…and going with the suggestion of the DCWV green stack, I pulled it out, and used the patterned paper from there! I used my martha stewart flower punch and punched 3 flowers, and pop dotted them, then I added flourishes. I also added some red gem flowers to the card, and edged the edges with the martha stewart edged lattice punch! Almost forgot..the sentiments are from my favorite things sentiment package!

LOVE IT! has a fun sketch that is posted in a post below, has the colours pink, orange and green!
Finally, had us using lace..

So what did I do? I combined the three of them! I used DCWV Sorbet patterned paper, bazill, my cuttlebug, and the happy birthday folder, some green ink from stampin up..oval all stamp set from stampin up, the scallop oval from stampin up, THRIFT STORE LACE (That was inked to match the card! It was cream initially!) I also punched the edge of the card with a scalloped martha stewart edge punch…. and I sooooooo love this card!! I really hope you do too!! 😀 Positive feedback is welcome!! 🙂

Happy Thursday everyone… let me first do a shout out to my dear heart Lisa, who is under the weather..LISA I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Poor girl is feeling kinda shapoopy…big hugs to you doll! I have been under the weather myself, but that is due to pregnancy, and not being 100%. That and having a 2 1/2 year old who wakes up at 5am and refuses to nap, makes for a VERY long day. It is my mission to get him back in the nap least til Baby Peanut arrives. Onto other missions, that are crafting related :

1. Use my cuttlebug more (I haven’t used it in 2 weeks!)  2. Use a different cartridge every day {i have 46 of them, and only about 12 get used often, and only about 5 regularly!} 3. Use my DCWV paper more, as I have over 33 stacks!! 4. not worry if I dont get comments anymore..because really, I do this for me, not for the feedback..altho the feedback is a nice bonus 🙂 has a fun sketch that I am going to try!! has the colours pink, orange and green! has a colour challenge of teal and red…they mentioned the DCWV Green Stack has a lot of these colours, and I just happened to pick that up, along with the sorbet this past weekend 🙂 YAY I Get to use it!! dares us to use lace on our cards… woot…remember I mentioned all that thrift store lace I bought? PERFECT challenge for this! 🙂 also has a sketch

LOL 😉 ) and came up with this card! It is also colours I wouldn’t normally put together, but I had a piece of patterned paper I wanted to use, and worked from there! TFL!
