Mojo Monday - Time for another sketch

 

Today I am lucky enough to have a clean house (thanks hubby) so I can spend the day in my card-room.  I was waiting for the Mojo sketch 199 to load up so I could get cracking.

Very easy layout so the question was how to decorate.  At the moment, the collection of paper stacks I own is quite decent so the worst thing is having to choose from so many lovely papers!  I had spent a day last month doing some die-cutting in order to have a stash built up - so handy when time is short.  A very quick card to put together and it looks more elegant in person.  Hope the lady in question likes it!

Card Recipe:
  • White card blank from stash
  • Both papers I used came from a Prima Marketing paper stack called 'Sweet Fairy'
  • Purple ribbon purchased from Meiflower
  • Dies by Spellbinders (blossom) and Papertrey Ink (dressform) and Cuttlebug (butterfly)
 

Gone Fishin' - Caught my Mojo

Well I hadn't really lost my mojo I have been just soooo busy making invitations over the last two weeks - my poor, poor neglected blog.  When I haven't been making cards for a while I always check back with the Mojo Monday sketch blog to get me back in the mood and today was no exception!!  Oh yeah..... I also bought a stack of card magazines today {went to buy 1, came back with 4}.

As I was busy making invitations my orders for cards started to build up too so I am playing catch-up yesterday and today.  Here is a birthday card I made for a boy using the Mojo Monday sketch no 198 flipped on it's side:
Card Recipe:
  • White base card from stash
  • Both backing papers are from the same Prima Marketing paper stack called 'Jack & Jill'
  • Fish and duck cut from Spellbinders Shapeabilities dies.  Part of the fish was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder
  • Sentiment was computer-generated
