Mojo Challenge #338

Love the layout for this week's Mojo Challenge.  I made my banners using
Washi tape. Cut the circle with a Stampin Up punch then chalked the edges.
The pattern paper is a sheet from Recollections Floral Foliage paper pack.

The sentiment  "it's your birthday" is one of 32 in the  Verve Stamps TAKE NOTE
VS-0192;  my choice as one of the winners of challenge #335. 

Sorry, this is not a very clear picture. Took several but they all
turned out the same.

Hope you will enjoy my latest creation.

Scrapbook Pages

I would like to share with you some of the pages I did at the
Sunshine Retreat held in Williamsburg, Virginia this past weekend.
Someone had put this sentiment embellishment on the "Free" table. 
and the  minute I saw it, I knew the perfect picture to use it with.
Granddaughter in the center with her two best friends.

Then I had to try and duplicate an embellishment for the second page layout.
Between Stampin Up punches and Cricut cartridges I am very
pleased with the end results.
Granddaughter with Mom and Dad

Tulips made using parts from the Stampin Up
Owl punch, chalked the edges of the petals and pop dotted
them in grass that was cut using the Cricut.
Punched out a butterfly, colored in the center with black
Copic marker then added two tiny strips of black for it's antennas.
Granddaughter and my son.

My daughter had given me a packet of  6x6 inch paper
which contained one sheet that looked like stainless
steel which I use to cut out the scissors on my Cricut machine.
Then cut a second pair from black paper to cover the handles.
Letters made with Alphalicious Cricut cartridge.
This are my two granddaughters, age 29 and 10.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

I can't begin to tell all how excited I was to see that my entry  (#25)
was selected as one of the winners last week at the Mojo Monday
Challenge Blog. I got the Verve stamp of my choice today
and will be back soon with another Mojo entry using my prize.
 Until then, thanks for stopping by.

Mojo Challenge 335

After selecting my shades of green I highlighted the edges of the paper with
a green Copic marker. Added a sentiment banner stamped with one
found in a dollar bin at Michael's. The paper flower is from the Creative
Memories Delightful pack. I had this little shamrock in my stash which
is the  perfect finishing touch to this card.

Thanks for stopping by and may the luck of the Irish always be with you.

February Card Swap

Sorry, Followers, I am a bit late posting pictures from the February Card Swap.
I had orders to knit 13 ruffle scarfs which I just finished up last weekend.
Anyway, we had a wonderful group of cards to assemble.
This lady's card was so colorful as the gray area is glitter paper
then the flowers were cut with her Cricut.

Love the different shape hearts.
Love these color combinations and we had to stamp
 all the hearts on the white border paper.
This lady is a Stampin Up Consultant and her cards
are always first class.

I love the little mouse!

This is my card using a floral sentiment stamp form Michael's
then  colored in the flowers and butterfly using Copic markers.
The red hearts made with the Creative Memories heart punch.
This card is great for any occasion and especially for a male.
The texture on the brown paper was made with the latest embossing plate
from Stampin Up,which give it a leather look.

I never heard the lady say how this was cut out but love the design.

What a creative idea this was to use the little umbrella,
 folded in half then glued in place. We had the choice
to use a pre-printed sentiment or write in, as I did.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed.
