You Make Me Happy!

It’s Mojo Monday time and here is this week’s sketch…

Mojo 335 SketchThis is my take on the sketch. As you can see, with the countdown on until the end of Sale-a-Bration this month, I’m making the most of all the wonderful selections there are this year!

Mojo 335 - You Make me Happy - JIFThe three stripes I had created for last weeks challenge and after spending an hour this afternoon looking for just the right color, decided this was what the card needed as I didn’t really want a girlie-girl card. And of course this all had to be run through the Sale-a-Bration’s Decorative Dots Embossing Folder!

Onto the Basic Gray Cardstock I stamped with Basic Gray Classic Ink the arrow from the Petals Parade Stamp Set. I also used the semi-circle “leaf-like” stamp from this set for the Summer Starfruit Cardstock background.

Mojo 335 - Petal Parade Background - JIFThe leaves I punched in Pistachio Pudding Core’dinations from the Bird Builder Punch then did some accordion folding with a strip of the Pistachio to create the Paper Ribbon. The finishing touch was a cork flower from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Kit from which I also added a couple of the arrow pieces to the sentiment. This too is from Sale-a-Bration, the See Ya Later Stamp Set which I stamped and sponged in Summer Starfruit Classic Ink.

What day is it???

Where does the time go? It’s almost time for the new MOJO Monday and I’m only just completing and posting this one. Good grief but… notice how I’ve managed to keep my pledge of creating masculine cards each week with this challenge.!

Really Good Greetings - FINALLY!

This is this week’s Mojo sketch.

I wanted numbers on this card so reached for the Soho Subway DSP. Finding a contrasting color for the numbers was a no-brainer as all I needed to do was flip the paper. How easy is that?! As you may have also sensed, I can’t seem to get enough of the new burlap ribbon and don’t even get me started on the Hung Up Cute Clips – LOVE THEM ALL!

Lovin' the new embellishments!

For a little something different I used some of the stickers from the “This and That” designer collection. All the stickers in that set are so cute and although are more for the journal, can obviously be used elsewhere. Add a sentiment from the Really Good Greetings stamp set and voila!

Just a little "this and that"!
