Mojo 365

Posted on

Made it through Monday and I’m happy to see that you did too! My day was pretty average. I got stuff done at work and when I came home little Daniel was there for dinner. I spoke to my sister-in-law Erika about his birthday party decorations and we are going to make them on the 18th of October. Andrew stopped by for a little visit on his way home from school, always a nice surprise! Heather had to take her car to her dad in Valley Stream to get her tire fixed so I followed her there and drove her back. We hung out at her house for a bit and had a nice long chat about the goings on in our lives. Always good to talk about that sort of stuff and get another opinion so we know that we are not ready to board the crazy train! LOL! So, it was a very good day!

Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…


Yeah! Another Tall & Skinny card! They are fast becoming my favorite cards to make! The card I made for today starts off with a base of Smoky Slate Card Stock and for the background I used a piece of paper from the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack. Across the top is a piece of Crushed Curry that I heat embossed the greeting from the Hi There Stamp Set in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My banners are all pieces of paper from the Flashback Designer Series Paper Pack. I thought the card needed a little more so I used my 1/4″ and 1/2″ Circle Punches to make some “page protectors” using Real Red, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Smoky Slate. I adhered them in a line down the left side of the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. A rather simple, highly mailable and somewhat masculine card that would be great for a birthday, thank you or just about any other occasion don’t you think?! That’s my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I hope that you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it! Thanks so much for coming by to spend a little time with me today! Have yourselves a tantalizing Tuesday! 🙂

  1. Nice card. Really like your take on the sketch and colors. I haven’t tried making a tall and skinny card and was wondering what are the measurements for your card base? Enjoy your Tuesday! Also, I’m looking forward to hearing about Daniel’s upcoming birthday. Know you all will have lots of fun!

    • Thanks so much Brenda! I am a huge fan of the tall & skinny card! The card base is still 5 1/2 high just 3 1/2 wide. I hope you had a good Tuesday! I’m looking forward to making the decorations!! You’ll hear all about it, not to worry! 🙂

  5. Good morning Justin. This card is just cute! Thanks for the smile.

  6. Hi Justin! Great card—love those little page protectors!! Very nice! I can’t wait to see what you put together for Daniel’s bday party…hope you will share with us! I’m sure they’ll be fantastic! Have a wonderful day!

    • Hey Karen!
      Thanks! I thought the “page protectors” were a fun addition! We are going to have fun making the decorations! I will definitely post pictures of all of the festivities! Hope you had a good day! 🙂

  7. Cute card, Justin. I like the bright colors and the page protectors really add interest to it. I’d like your secret of how you can pack 30 hours of work into a 24-hour day! lol

  8. very bright and cheery! love the page protectors, very ingenious 🙂

  9. Hi Justin:
    Love the “Page Protectors”! You managed to punch them perfectly. An absolutely happy card. Love that it is so colorful and so versatile. Your staging was fabulous. I also like the fact that it’s an easy to mail card. I send a lot of cards and having to put extra postage on them can add up quickly. You did a fantastic job of getting those circles aligned. You have a lot of patience for sure. Have yourself a Terrific Tuesday!

    • Hello Grace!
      Thank you! I thought they were a cool little addition! Bright but not too bright! I am having so much fun with my props and I’m glad that you are enjoying them! Mailable cards are great to have on hand! My patience paid off! Hope your day was great! 🙂

  10. Cute cute cute…. Love the page protectors.
