I know, It's Been Awhile!

Yes, it has been a few weeks - I have been busy and lazy and everything in between! I didn't get to MOJO82 but I am hoping to get to MOJO83. I did manage to finish this card which is a total CASE from Mary Fish. I love her stuff and when I saw her card I thought it was great!! But when I decided to do my own version I got stumped and it took me a few days to get it together. It seems I can't stay away from the monochromatic look! I think right now that's mainly because I don't have a vast supply of DSP so I had to work with what I had. Then, I could not figure out the scale she used. As you can see, I only have 2 daisies and she has 3. She must have used the littlest daisy for her card. In any case, (no pun intended!) I finally managed to finish the B-day card for my friend, Mickey.
Whisper White CS, So Saffron CS, a tiny sliver of Chocolate Chip CS for the "thread" (another "tip" I learned from Mary Fish- I just love her!) Chocolate Chip CSP, Walk in the Park DSP, and Delicate Dots DSP (from SAB), wide oval punch and So Saffron striped grosgrain ribbon! Oh, yeah, the sentiment is from the CHit Chat rub-ons! TFL!!

MOJO81 I made it!!!

Yay! I actually finished in time to post before Mr. Linky closes! I am not sure if I absolutely love this card, but I am happy I used glitter! The glitter and the little dew drops are not SU! I just happened to have that stuff around. Thank goodness because I was having a heck of a time trying to come up with something to do for this challenge. I almost gave up-but alas, I did not! TFL!

Ingredients: Chocolate Chip CS and CSP and grosgrain ribbon, Kiwi Kiss CS, Very Vanilla CS, Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp set and Great Friend stamp set.

Purple Flower Bouquet

This is one of my favorites so far!! I made this for my co-worker, Mickey, who I thought might not be allowed real flowers in the hospital. I took pictures of everyone from the office and printed them small enough to punch out for the center of the flowers. I then camoflauged one of those recorder things that you put in scrapbooks or cards - I don't know what they are called! I recorded a snippet of a song by Gunther (if you don't know who Gunther is, you can check him out here!) Gunther is sort of an inside joke at work with Mickey, and the song is "The Ding Dong Song!" Sometimes, we have too much fun at work!! Needless to say, she loved it! Our thoughts and prayers are with you Mickey! We love you! I used mostly SU! stuff, Orchid Opulance and Lovely Lilac cardstock and classic ink, my Big Shot, and Flowers #3 die. TFL!

I missed it again!! MOJO80

Well, I seem to have missed the Sunday 8 pm deadline for Mr. Linky, but I can still post it here and on SCS! Here is my Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I think it's kinda cool in a dark sort of way. It looks like a black and white picture. What do you think?

Basic Grey CS, Basic Blcak CS and Whisper White CS, Basic Grey Classic ink, Walk in the Park DSP, Valet Ribbon originals, scallop circle puch, rhinestone brads, and the Great Friend stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

So Soft, So Saffron!

I was just playing around with my new stuff, with no real purpose and I came up with this. Plain and simple but I kind of like it. Even my dear husband liked it! I try to challenge myself to create something without CASE'ing and when I do it looks like this-kind of plain! I think I might stick to the challenges I find on-line, like at SCS!

So Saffron CS, Whipser White CS, Walk in the Park DSP, So Saffron Classic ink pad, Chit Chat rub-on, So Saffron grosgrain ribbon from SAB, and an antique brass mini Library Clip.
Thanks for looking!

MOJO Monday 79 Sketch

Okay...so I am only a week and a half late! At least I did it! I actually finished it Sunday night but it was after 8pm and Mister Linky was already closed! Whadda ya think! I thought it turned out pretty. I was very anxious to play with my Walk in the Park DSP and my Big Shot (I just got it so I want to play, play play! Unfortunately, I have to work, so I don't get to play as much as I want!)

Basic Grey CS and ink; Whisper White CS and Cameo Coral CS, Walk in the Park DSP, SU! Little Leaves Sizzlet die, Boho Blossoms punch, SU! Ribbon Originals Valet. The sentiment (yes, I know, "what sentiment?") is from the Great Friend stamp set from the new Occassions Mini Catalog just released today! (That's no foolin'!)
