Thursday, how nice to see you again! One more day people! Rumor has it that we are going to get out of work early tomorrow and there will not be many people there anyway! Love days like that. My boss asked me to make two thank you card for her and I also managed to get another card made last night too. I love when I can get three cards made in one night. The weather here was sunny but overcast and at one point it looked like it might rain but didn’t. I don’t think the weather man has high hopes for the weekend either but I think they do that sometimes just in case it’s not the greatest. I don’t have any big plans, maybe just lay low and get some work done around the house. I also desperately need to organize my craft area which I have been doing little by little. Really little though!

Before I get to today’s post I want to let you know about two promotions from Stampin’ Up! announced today. First up they have released the Best of Set for September, the Best of Autumn. You can see them below or click here for a PDF.

Wood is $29.67 (savings $5.24) and Clear is $26.27 (savings $4.54). The flyer below has the prices reversed but you can take a look at it or click here for a PDF.

Now for today’s card that is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch challenge. This time our sketch is provided by Julee Tilman…

My card starts off with a base of Pistachio Pudding Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Crumb Cake and the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set stamped in Pistachio Pudding and Crumb Cake randomly. A piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon is adhered around the back before the panel is mounted to the base. The greeting is the new Magical Season Single Stamp stamped in Cherry Cobbler and cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits and paper pierced with the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack around the edge. I backed it with a piece of Pistachio Pudding cut out with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits and embossed with the Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Some Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake punched out with the Boho Blossom Punch creates the flower. One Basic Jewel Pearl in the center of the flower and three in the lower right corner complete the card. I really like the Cherry Cobbler with the Pistachio Pudding and the oval back by the label is pretty cool too. Thanks for spending some time with me today to see my Mojo Monday sketch card for this week’s challenge. Have a very enjoyable Thursday!

  1. A beautiful (and unexpected) color combination. I love the paper piercing around the sentiment, and the embossing folder on the panel behind. I also don’t use Crumb Cake enough. A beautiful card, Justin! Good luck with getting off early tomorrow.
