Mojo 341 - You're egg-stra special

Hi folks!

Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate!!! Just thought I would pop in and share a few cards this morning before we head down to have Easter dinner with dearly beloved's family.

Up first is --- an Easter card!



I know it has flowers on it but I'm giving it to dearly beloved anyway. So there. I probably could have swapped out the flowered paper for the polka-dotted paper in this pad but - oh well, it's Spring, it's Easter, he's getting flowers on his card!

card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, kraft card stock base, cream mat
  • patterned papers: Authentique "Hope"
  • stamps: Verve "Eggstra Special"
  • layout: Mojo Monday 341

What do you do when....

Hi folks,

Back today, sharing the last of the cards I made while making my card for Mojo Monday 340. This one is "what I did when..." I had a pile of scrap paper sitting on my desk.


I have to say I do quite like the dramatic look of these prints against the black card stock.

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, black card stock base and mats
  • patterned papers: Carta Bella "Well Played"
  • stamps: Verve "Treasured Words"

Inspired by Mojo Monday 340 - Take One

Hi folks,

So, when as I mentioned in my previous post, I actually cut out the bits and pieces to make four cards based on the Mojo Monday 340 sketch - but I wound up putting them together differently on each of the cards.

Today, I'm sharing one of them - a 50th birthday card for one of the guys with whom my dearly plays Dungeons and Dragons.



card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, kraft card stock base, white and red mats
  • patterned papers: Carta Bella "Well Played"
  • stamps: Verve "Birthday Bash", CTMH Solos "Zero", "5"
  • black twill ribbon from my stash
  • Spellbinders Petite Circles

Mojo Monday 340

Hi folks!

Just popping in to share a card I made for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I REALLY need to replenish my stash of simple cards for grown-ups and sat down on Friday to make a bunch of cards.




I quite like the graphics in this paper collection and actually wound up cutting out the bits to make four cards  - but just assembled them all a bit differently. This is the one that actually stuck to the original sketch. I'll share the rest of the cards, plus one I made from the scraps, as the week goes on.

card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, kraft card stock base, white and red mats
  • patterned paper: Carta Bella "Well Played"
  • sentiment: Verve "Making a Statement"
  • Spellbinders Petite Circles
  • black twill ribbon from my stash
