Mojo Monday #129 and St. Patty’s Day!

Today I am home sick with Strep Throat – ugh… I think the antibiotics are finally starting to kick in because instead of feeling like someone is holding a hot iron to my throat 24/7, now it just feels like gargling with glass shards – only when I swallow! That’s progress! Anyway, making cards is distracting me from my troubles! I made this card for my Mom since St. Patrick’s day is near and dear to her heart. First, here is the sketch:
On my card, all my papers are from CTMH and I’ve focused on the color Juniper with cream accents and some distressing in Desert Sand. I’ve also used the Apron Lace punch from Fiskars. The antique lace, ribbon, jute, pearls and shamrock button are from my stash. My sentiment has been floating around in my miscellaneous bag for years — it’s from My Mind’s Eye circa 2002, so I’m glad to finally use it. I distressed it a bit with some more desert sand ink. Here is the finished product…

Thanks for looking at my blog today!

Mojo Monday #109

Here is the Mojo Monday sketch for this week…

And here is the card I made with the sketch. An old stamp (little girl is Inky Antics) and a new stamp (for me!) from Autumn Leaves. I used my trusty colored pencils on the girl… one of these days I will have to invest in Copics but for now colored pencils will have to do. Ribbons, waxy flax, button and pearlies are all from my stash; Paper is from American Crafts and my scallop shape is an SU! punch. mojo_109

Oh dear… I stayed up way past my bedtime tonight… I need to hit the sack! Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday, #108

Raspberry Tart paper by SU! is sitting on my table… I’ve had it for a year and have just started using it. I love the colors, I don’t know why I didn’t pull it out earlier. Stamps are CTMH, Nesties Labels 1, some button stacking and that’s about it! Here is the link to Mojo Monday #108 – Thanks for looking!mojo_108

Here is my take using up some CTMH chipboard and stamps; KI Memories lace paper and miscellaneous embellies… I think it has a little bit of a Hawaiian feel to it…
