Happy Tuesday, folks! Monday turned out to be a very productive day. I got quite a few things accomplished at work which is always a good way to start off the week. More importantly, I got a lot accomplished at home! I managed to pack 5 more boxes in the living room and then the amazing Andrew came by and we tackled the closet. Six full black garbage bags later, it seems much more manageable. LOL! We were good, we put the top down in the convertible, threw the bags in the back and took them to the drop-off box to donate them. Tomorrow, Andrew will be moving stuff for me while I’m at work which I’m very excited about. LOL! It’s definitely the way moving should be done! Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn’t rain on Saturday otherwise I will be a very unhappy camper.
Before I started packing last night, I sat down and made my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
I was looking around at my recent cards and realized I’ve used Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey far too much. So to mix it up today, I threw some Lost Lagoon in there. The base of my card is Smoky Slate Card Stock. My background consists of a piece of paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack on the left and some Basic Gray that I embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next up is a piece of Silver Foil Sheet that I cut out with the Starburst Framelits. Across the middle of the card is a piece of Hello Honey that I flagged on both ends and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My tag is a piece of Whisper White cut to 1 5/8″ wide, I marked the center on the back and slid it in the Angled Tag Topper Punch, a skinnier version of the standard tag. The background on it is created with the Dotty Angles Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Sky. My greeting is from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set and is stamped in Lost Lagoon. A piece of White Bakers Twine is looped through the hole in the top. The star is a piece of Smoky Slate that I cut out with the Stars Framelits. I like the way the DSP, Embossing Folder and background on the tag all coordinate so well. I’m also a big fan of the interesting color combination and this would make a good masculine birthday card. Sound off in the comments and let me know what you think of my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Your visit, as always, is greatly appreciated. Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
