Mojo 266

Posted on

Good morning everyone! How are you all doing today? I’m ok, still no power and it’s getting a little chilly here. I’m one of the lucky ones that has a nice warm place to stay. I really feel for the people that don’t. It has been exactly 7 days since we had power at my house. On a positive note I have seen tons of electrical trucks so I’m hoping again that today will be the day. They have come from all over to help, I even saw a few from Joplin Missouri, they had an incredibly tough time with the tornado and it’s great to see them here able to help us now. So a big thanks to everyone that is doing what they can to get us back to a civilized life here in New York. I won’t even comment on the gas issue, that has gotten way out of hand!

Happy time! Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week we have a sketch from Julee Tilman…

I’m loving the flagged items as always! My card starts off with a base of Early Espresso Card Stock. I used the Woodgrain Background Stamp inked up in some Illuminate Glimmer Ink. I find that it takes a while to dry but the end result is worth the wait. A flagged piece of Primrose Petals makes the next layer. The next two layers are pieces from the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Paper Pack. The top most layer is backed by a piece of Very Vanilla. I cut a piece of Brushed Silver Card Stock with the Snow Flurry Bigz Die. For a little change of pace I stamped a butterfly from the Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set in Primrose Petals and punched it out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. Both are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the More Merry Messages Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals. I flagged the end and used a Vintage Faceted Designer Button with a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper in the center on the left side. I hope that you enjoyed my Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card for this week. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of your comments, they always make me smile! I hope that you all have a great day and thank you so much for checking in with me today!
