It was another extremely frigid day here but thankfully it was the last one we’ll have for a while. It’s going to be in the 40’s tomorrow and it will get up to 60 on Sunday. Yay! Work was nice today, I even had time to clean up my emails. My boss took a half day and I ran to the post office and mailed my Christmas cards. I came home, got my blog projects done for tomorrow’s Control Freaks Blog Tour and watched The Sing-Off (again, thanks, Andrew!). All of the groups were actually really good tonight. My favorites got through!
Today I have what would have been my usual Tuesday post, my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
I used some of the new Sale-A-Bration products on my card for your viewing pleasure. The base of my card is Pool Party Card Stock. My background is a piece of Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper** backed by a piece of Summer Starfruit. The larger strip across the bottom is Crisp Cantaloupe stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Crisp Cantaloupe. My greeting is stamped in Pistachio Pudding and is from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set. The three flags across the top are from the Banner Blast Stamp Set** and are stamped in Pistachio Pudding, Summer Starfruit and Crisp Cantaloupe. I used the coordinating Banner Punch** to punch them out and some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them at the top. I wouldn’t normally use a bold piece of Designer Series Paper that large but I kind of think it looks funky and I like it. As always, I appreciate you stopping by to see my Mojo Monday card for this week’s sketch challenge. I hope you enjoyed your sneak peeks. Have a terrific Thursday, I’ll see you back here later tonight for the Control Freaks Blog Tour!
