Happy Birthday

  MoJo Monday Challenge 268, was ideal template for making this birthday card. I used papers from my scrap bin for the background and circles then added a creative Memories "Enchanted" paper flower and crystal embellishment. Circles cut using Stampin Up 2 1/2", 1 1/4" and 1" punches.
"Happy Birthday" is a gold Starform Outline Sticker.

Be Thankful

 As Thanksgiving approaches, I am so thankful for many blessings in my life.
My daughter, two friends and I are in Virginia Beach this weekend for the Sunshine Scrapbook  Retreat. Our scrapbooking room overlooks the ocean and as the waves come ashore, I think of those who lost so much during Hurricane Sandy. Our thoughts and prayers are for them.
For Mojo Monday Challenge 267,  I selected papers in fall colors from a DCWV Fall Scrapbooking kit, added a Creative Memories Reminisce paper flower, embellished with a button, then added the computer generated sentiment. Finishing touch is the ribbon which was part of the above mentioned kit.

Seasons Greetings

Mojo Monday Challenge #266 was a breeze using scraps of papers and embellishments left over from past years Christmas projects. The scalloped circle made with a Stampin Up punch . After attaching the metal tree to the center of the circle, I adhered to the card using a pop dot. The  Poinsettia is a Recollections dimensional sticker and the sentiment sticker left over from a Christmas Card making kit.

Season's Greetings

MoJo Monday Challenge #265 is the perfect layout for  this Cardinal I colored some months ago. I am a novice at using copic markers but am very pleased with the results. He is a 2005 Stampin Up rubber stamp. Copic markers used were R27 Cadmium Red, G07 Nile Green, and E49 Dark Bark. The Pointsettia is make with the Cricut Joy of the Season cartridge, cutting white on the blackout setting, then several in red and green. I  highlighted the leaves with copic markers, and glued a cluster of gold beads in the center. The sentimenty is computer generated using the AR Berkley font.
