Hey there and happy Monday?! Nah, Monday is rarely happy. How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good considering I worked on Saturday. I had a nice day yesterday, I got some crafting in, went to see some friends and spent some time outside in the beautiful weather. What were you all up to this weekend, hopefully some good fun happenings! I did get up a little early this morning so I decided to make my Mojo Monday card. If I made the card and wrote the blog post you know it was really early!
Today’s post – Mojo 292, a sketch from Julee Tilman…
As soon as I saw the sketch I though of the Epic Day This and That DSP! The base of my card is Pool Party and I used the soon to be retiring Color Spritzer Tool to spritz some Pool Party ink on it. The pieces of paper are from the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper and on the one I used the “Vintage” Spiral Notebook Border Punch. The flags and the scallop across the middle are all Basic Gray. For the greeting I used the Label Love Stamp Set*, stamped in Gumball Green, and the Artisan Label Punch* with some Stampin’ Dimensionals for some pop. I like the simplicity of the card even with all of the elements. Thank you for checking in with me today to see my Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card for this week. Have yourselves a good Monday! 🙂

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!
