Glad to see that you are all here in one piece and survived your Monday! Mine was ok, I got stuff done and ran an errand for work to Michaels. After dinner I went to IKEA to exchange my blinds and ended up buying a Christmas Tree. It looks ver realistic, sort of sparse. I have been looking for a tree like this one for a while and it wasn’t a fortune which was an added bonus! I think it will go up early tis year to encourage me to make the ornaments for it! That Curvy Keepsake Thinlit will make some great ones! Come to think of it the Stars Framelits will come in handy too! See, now I can’t wait to get started on them! We’ll see how long that lasts! LOL!

The card that I made last night is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. It’s a nice different one from Sarah Bigelow…

I was tempted to use the Large Scallop Edgelit but though I could come up with something a little more creative! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock. The top of the card has a piece of Basic Black that I heat embossed the sentiment from the Sumthin’ Sumthin Stamp Set in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I threaded a piece of the Silver 1/8″ Ribbon through one of the Gold Basic Metal Buttons and adhered it around the back with some Sticky Strip. The bottom is four 2″ strips of the Gold and Silver Foil Sheet. I used the 1″ Circle Punch to punch out the top of each one and adhered them over the Basic Black. A few Frosted Sequins in the upper right complete the card. I have wanted to used some silver and gold together for a while. I think this would make a great card for a birthday or party invitation! Not overly complicated but fun and elegant! I hope you like my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Your visit, as always, is appreciated and I wish you all a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Yesterday was another very busy day at work. Danielle and I did get to go on a field trip in the morning to BJ’s, Target and Home Depot to pick up some things for an event that is happening today. Anytime out of the office is a good time! And guess what? We ran into my parents in BJ’s! How funny is that?! When I got home I made a card and watched Forever from Tuesday night, I really like that show a lot. I was also listening to Sam while I was making my card. I just can’t stop listening to that album!

Today I have my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…

Mojo366

They always have such neat sketches over at Mojo! Today’s card begins with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. A funny little bit of information, I always start my posit with the base but to be honest it’s usually the last thing that I choose! LOL! The background is a piece of Pear Pizzaz that I heat embossed the dots from the Dotty Angles Photopolymer Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Across the middle is a piece of Soft Sky that I embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two panels are pieces of paper from the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack. One is backed with Whisper White and the other with Smoky Slate. They are both adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My main panel is a piece of Lost Lagoon, I embossed the greeting from the Letterpress Winter Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then used my Versa-Marker to draw the border around the edge. That is heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. In the lower right corner, three Basic Jewels Rhinestones finish off the card with a little sparkle! I absolutely love the colors in the All is Calm DSP and I just can’t get enough of the heat embossing can I?! LOL! That’s my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge, I hope that you enjoyed it as much as I enjoy having you stop by! One more day to go my friends and we will be gliding into the weekend! Enjoy your Thursday! 🙂

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…

Mojo365

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! 🙂

Well, that was nice Wednesday! It was a little chilly here yesterday morning but warmed up as the day went on. We are supposed to get some heavy rain this morning but it’s not supposed to last all day. After work I came home and got a nice little surprise, Andrew stopped by for a bit! We chatted for a while and the he had to go and pick up his mom and I had to go and meet Heather for her appointment at the Apple Store and dinner. I picked up Heather and we headed to Apple. She is having problems with her iPhone 4 and she thought by some miracle they would have a new 6 in stock. Silly Heather! LOL! We stopped at BestBuy and they had iPhone 6’s, just not AT&T. Since we were right near Friday’s we went there for dinner. They had half price appetizers and $3 martinis! We had cosmos, potstickers and boneless wings. Our friend Stephanie came and joined us for a drink and then we went back to Heather’s for bit. She called and ordered the iPhone 6 from Apple, she should get it on the 14th of October! I came home and made my card and got to bed a lot later than I wanted to! Oh well, I had a great evening so the lack of sleep will be worth it!

Today I have my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch from the talented Julee Tilman…

Mojo364

I went for a somewhat traditional Christmas card. The card starts off with a base of Garden Green Card Stock and the background is a piece of Crumb Cake that I embossed with the On Point Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next up is a piece of paper from the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack backed with some Whisper White. All of the stamped images and greeting are from the Ornamental Pine Stamp Set. The pine branch is stamped in Garden Green on Whisper White and is backed with a piece of Garden Green. My ornament and hanger are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut out with my Paper Snips. The hanger is adhered to the card with Multi-purpose Glue and the ornament with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the greeting in Versa-Marka and heat embossed that on Early Espresso and cut them out and adhered them to the panels with Stampin’ Dimensionals too. I really like the greeting separated on top of the panel and the way the embossing folder goes so well with the DSP. I hope that you are enjoying the holiday cards including today’s one for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch. I Love having you stop by and hope that you all have a terrific Thursday! 🙂

So how was your Monday? I have no complaints about mine. Yes, it was busy but not insanely so. I got stuff done and then after dinner I sat down and made a card and then just relaxed for bit. It’s nice to be able to do that, even though I always feel like there is something else I should be doing! LOL! Yes, my scary little brain is always working thinking about things that I need to get started on and finish. Never a dull moment inside my crazy head! LOL!

The card that I made last night is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch challenge. Here is what we are working with this week…

Mojo363

I wanted to show off the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper so I went with a subtle Halloween theme. The base for my card is Basic Black Card Stock. My background consists of a piece of the Motley Monsters DSP on the bottom and some Crushed Curry that I embossed with the Luck Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The next layer is a piece of Tangerine Tango on the left and another piece of the Motley Monsters DSP that I backed with a piece of Basic Black to make it a little sturdier. They are adhered to each other with SNAIL and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My two circles, the larger one from Crushed Curry and the smaller form Tangerine Tango, are cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. The October and 31 are from the Project Life Day to Day Photopolymer Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used my Black Stampin’ Write Marker to edge them. The large circle is adhered to the panel with SNAIL and across it is a piece of Basic Black with the right side flagged. A piece of White & Tangerine Tango Two Tone Trim is formed into a bow and adhered behind the smaller circle under a Stampin’ Dimensional. A fun yet subtle Halloween Card and if you add a sentiment would make a nice fall birthday or thank you card! There are some really neat patterns in the Motley Monsters DSP, I think it may be one of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog! I hope that you liked my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to come by and see what I have been up to and enjoy your Tuesday! 🙂

Yesterday was just another day, nothing exciting to report. Work was work. I did stop by and see Brian and Kim last night. Brian was nice enough to go and get Carvel. I haven’t had that in forever! Some vanilla soft serve with whipped cream and colored sprinkles. YUM! We are supposed get some rain today and it’s supposed to be in the 80’s. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice and that’s good because we are having a little get together at Brian and Kim’s for someone’s birthday! Wonder who it could be?!

My post for today is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge from Julee Tilman…

Mojo362

I decided to use some colors that I don’t usually use together, I’m loving the Kraft Card Stock and I wanted to see how it would look with Blushing Bride. For my card base I used a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock and I adhered a piece of Kraft Card Stock to cover the entire front. I have been doing that a lot lately, i saves from having to line the inside of the card. The panel in the middle is Blushing Bride and I embossed it with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the main panel I used a piece of Basic Black and a strip of the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper. Across the top is a piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon that I cut the edges off of and pulled some threads out. It’s adhered with Fast Fuze. A piece of Gold Baker’s Twine is adhered around the back with some Sticky Strip over the top of the burlap. The feathers (yes, there they are again!) are from the Four Feathers Stamp Set and are heat embossed with Blushing Bride Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock and cut out with the Feathers Framelits. I tucked them under the greeting which is from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut it and a piece of Kraft out with the Bitty Banners Framelits and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My butterfly is from Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and is also heat embossed with Blushing Bride Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum, a glue dot holds him in place. The panel is adhered to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals and that completes the card. I love the Kraft, Blushing Bride and Basic Black together. Along with the Burlap it gives the card a nice earthy feel. So that’s my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch., I hope that you enjoyed it and I thank you, as always, for coming by to see me. Enjoy your Thursday peeps, we are almost there! 🙂

Those three day weekends always just fly by, not quite as fast as the two day ones but quick none the less! I did have a very nice weekend and hope that all of you did too. Since yesterday was an “extra” day I did some things around the house, ran some errands and got caught up on a few projects. A well rounded day I think! I did also start working on my mixed media project, I’m pretty happy with the way it’s coming along. I could spend the whole day in the Stampin’ Galley and be quite content! What all did you do this weekend?

It’s Tuesday and that means that there are new specials from Stampin’ Up! Here are this week’s deals…

I have been on a Holiday card kick lately, I know, it’s a little early but I’m having so much fun with the goodies in the Holiday Catalog I just can’t help it! Today’s card is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

Mojo361

When I looked at the sketch I knew what colors and stamp set I wanted to use, I just had to figure out how it would all come together. My card starts off with a base of Mossy Meadow Card Stock and the background is just a simple piece of Whisper White. The panel to the left is a piece of paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack. Next up is a thin strip of Silver Glimmer Paper that goes just below the center across. All of the images and greetings are from the Letterpress Winter Photopolymer Stamp Set. The panel on the right is Mossy Meadow and I heat embossed the image in Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The circle consist of a piece of Mossy Meadow under a piece of Vellum Card Stock, both cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits, with another one of the images again heat embossed in Pool Party on the Vellum. The greeting is heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. My flagged greeting is also Vellum and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I love the Pool Party and the Mossy Meadow together, such a fun combination. I also love all of the heat embossing, it gives the card such nice texture and shine! And that’s my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I hope that you enjoyed it and will forgive my abundance of early Holiday cards! Thanks for the visit, as always! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
