Mojo Monday 344 Contest

Hello again!  This card was made for the Mojo Monday 344 Contest.  It was such a fun card to make!

Here's the sketch:

And here is my card:

The stamps are from The Stamps of Life flipflops2stamp set.  Such a fun set!!  I also used the coordinating die set.  The clouds are a Stampin Up folder and I used Coastal Cabana and Pool Party papers for the clouds and waves.

Thanks Julee Tilman and Verve Stamps for a great, fun sketch and a chance to win some awesome stamps!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Have a day full of blessings!!

My mojo is a little slow

Hi all!  I started working on my Mojo Monday #339 sketch tall & skinny card on Monday--and it finally came together late last night.  The papers are from a birthday variety paper pack I picked up years ago.  The stamps are a hodge podge too:  The oval stamp & frame die are Doodlebug Designs, the candle & die are The Stamps of Life--spinner2stamp, the cupcake and wish big are Stampin Up--Carry On and Pennant Parade, the ribbon tag is Provo Craft and the sentiment is from Fiskars All Year Greeting set.

I was going to make a traditional folding card but once I added the ribbon I decided to make it a gift card holder.  The scallop is 1 1/4" SU punch and the present and Happy Birthday are from the spinner2stamp set as well.

Now I have to go stick it in the mail for my niece who's 14 on Friday!

Thanks for checking out my blog!  Have a wonderful day!

Getting back in the swing of things?!?

Oh, it has been too long since I have posted anything.  Life has been so busy--I have had another daughter since my last post!  I was very inspired by the MOJO Monday sketch challenge 338 and I just had to take the plunge and participate.  Here's my creation:

I am working on cards to give my sister who is an oncology nurse so she can use them with her patients.  I used Stampin Up! dsp and crumb cake papers, as well as Midnight Muse and Riding Hood Red inks.  The stamp set is Verve Stamps Strong Anchor set with matching dies.  I love it--it is so versatile.  I used a brayer to apply the inks to create the sailing flags and SU banner punch.  I cut the circles with Spellbinders.

Thanks for inspiring me and thanks for checking out my blog!

When I originally posted this I forgot to mention that I printed out "Discover your Strength" from my computer using My Digital Studio from SU.  It is amazing and completely customizable!!  This was my first time using it and I think I will make use of it very often in the future.
