Get Whale Mojo

Another great sketch from Mojo Monday Blog this week.  I have been waiting all weekend to be able to get a chance to get inky and put together this card.

I had a left over card made using the Spellbinders labels eight from last week.  I wanted to start with that since I had torn a bit of the top layer, I knew all I had to do was cover it up.  So, I cut a layer using the next size down out of We R Memory Keepers For the Record patterned paper.  I then used my Quick cutz flower die to make another layer using some Recollections Tatterned and Worn paper.  The circle I punched out of white Recollections paper and stamped with Staz On black the cutest whale ever from a new set I bought from Unity Stamp Company.

The banner I die cut using a papertrey ink die and used the sentiment from the set.  I colored the main image with sharpies and raised it on foam tape.  I added a couple of brown buttons from the Paper Studio.  Done!  It's totally cute.

This is sure to pick up someone's day when I need to sent a get well soon card...or in this case get Whale!

I've got to get going on those kiddo valentine's cards!  My son has 14 classmates we need to prepare for.  I got some ideas but I haven't landed on the design quite yet.  Are you creating for Valentine's yet?  I hope you stop by and share.

I am entering this card in the Mojo Monday Blog Sketch Challenge (see the link at the beginning of the post) and Top Tip Tuesday's Challenge: Something New.  The stamped image was new to me and I am glad I got it makes me smile.  Also on Top Tip Tuesday check out their tutorial on making paper ruffles.  Definitely going to try this out.
