You're Fabulous

Something we all need  to hear more often...You're fabulous!  And all of you are!

So this is another Mojo Monday sketch # 385.

All the paper is from Recollections.  The flowers are Studio G and colored using Sharpie Markers.  I used distress inks for the leaves, and Staz On brown for the flower.

The back layer I cut with my Cricut and unfortunately it is pretty covered up.
I then used some K&Co. words for the sentiment and a couple of Recollections rhinestones that are colored using a peach colored sharpie marker.

Thanks for stopping by.

Donut You Know?


This weeks' Curtain Call Challenge is a fun one!  Who does not like a good doughnut once in a while?  I sure do....and I like all kinds..glazed, cake, chocolate, creme filled, with sprinkles, without.  Ok, time to stop that now I just want to go buy a dozen.  :)

This card I created after looking at this wonderful inspiration picture.  

The entire card is made using my cricut.  The cute coffee and doughnut image is a layered image.  The card shape is also done using my cricut.  The sentiment I had my cricut write out for me.  On the inside I am going to add...you are wonderful in my own handwriting.

I did add a strip of Recollections paper at the bottom to create some interest.  I also inked the edge of the card and the shape I wrote the sentiment on.  The sentiment I did cut out using a die by Sizzix.

I also added a little Crystal Effects to the glaze of the doughnut to make it ....well look like glaze.

I hope you enjoy this card and have a great day!

Welcome Baby!

I made this card for a co-worker at work.  I hoped she liked it.  I used my cricut machine to cut a circle out of the card front.  I then ran it through my bigshot using a cuttlebug folder to make those amazing dry embossed dots.

I added some green dotted paper to the back and then put on that cute onsie that I cut out using my cricut machine.

Finally after I cut out the Welcome Baby sentiment with my machine I covered it with Versamark ink and sprinkled it with silver Wow embossing powder.  To finish it off I added a few sequins here and there.

This came together pretty quickly. Definitely could make a batch of these to keep on hand.

I am entering this in Cuttin and Stampin Challenge: Anything goes
and Card and Scrap: Anything Goes

Beautiful Dogwood Thank You!

I saw a sketch on the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog....and it was instant love.

I mean...what a great sketch.


I knew instantly what I wanted to stamp.  I didn't know the color scheme, but that came to me pretty easily.  The greatest part was that I used some of those paper scraps I hoard (I love doing that).

So I started off with a Unity Stamp...I stamped it on brown cardstock with brown Staz On ink.  I then die cut the Thank You sentiment using a Papertrey Ink die.  for a little extra touch, I added a brown button.  This was monochromatic all the way.

Again, I love this sketch...It's a classic.

Ducky with Mojo

It was a busy weekend...but I did get some time to do a few cards.  I, however, did not get my post for the Mojo Monday #384 posted in time.  :(


I tried, but other things got in the way.

But, regardless, I had a blast using this latest sketch.  The focal image is from Some Odd Girl.  It's a cute digital stamp of a duck in boots.  When I saw the image, I could not resist...he's so cute!  I cut him out using my cricut and then colored him with some sharpies.

I added background papers by Recollections.  To add some more "cuteness" I added a cute fringe in orange and a few pearls on the side also by Recollections.

This little guy is guaranteed to make anyone smile!

Sometimes Simple....

I have had this cut out of a scalloped card sitting on my desk for a few weeks.  I made the card using my Cricut Design Space by welding to scalloped images together.  After cutting it out, I just wasn't sure what I wanted to do with.

Well....I finally thought...kiss (keep it simple silly).

So I got out a new stamp set  I bought from Unit Stamp Company and added an image and sentiment in Staz On Brown.

To add some color I sponged the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress ink (I know....again with that color).  I then added three strips of washi tape in pink, blue, and green.

All done!  Wow, even though I smudged the sentiment a bit...I still love this card. 

I hope you do as well.

Be My Valentine

Well, it's another great sketch from Mojo Monday.  This is sketch # 383.  I getting this one done and posted down to the wire.  I feel like a journalist with a scoop.

I started this out with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square card by Recollections.  For the background I took some Recollections black and white patterened paper and used some barn door distress ink to create a background that fades as it goes down.

On top of that I added some silver washi tape along with some black and gold washi tape.

For the main image I stamped a cute little birdie with balloon by Unity Stamp.  I popped this up on some foam tape after coloring him with some Sharpies..  I also added a red die cut with the Be My Valentine Stamp by Studio G added onto a circle punch.  I distressed the edges of this with the barn door distress in.

I love the way this turned out.  I think this might be the valentine I give my son.

Thank you for stopping by!

I love you....

I was totally inspired by this weeks Curtain Call's Kissing booth.

It's a great photo don't you think?  So I dusted off my new Sizzix banner embossing folder.  On the middle three banners I added my sentiment using my Recollections alphabet dies.  I stamped them in Staz on Jet Black and Ranger's Adirondak Cranberry.

I then found a bit of red corrugated paper in my paper stash to add to the bottom.  The circle with the heart in the middle was cut with my cricut out of some We R Memory Keepers For the Record paper.

To pull it all together I added a bit of off white twine and some silver and gold sequins.

Therefore,  I am adding this to Curtain Call's Kissing Booth
and
Anya, Oddies, and Other's February option by the Greeting Farm:  I used stripes (corrugated paper), the color red, letters, and hearts.

Time for a Birthday Cake....

It was time for another sketch challenge over at Incy Wincy Designs.  I really liked the sketch, and wanted to get out my stamping bella stamp.  I hadn't used my cake bella in a while, so I inked it up with Some StazOn Jet Black and then colored it in with my sharpies in blue and orange.

I really wanted to keep the focus on the image so I backed it up with some patterned paper by Recollections in black and white.

I then had my cricut write out the Birthday message in silver.

I probably could use some embellishments, but I like it simple and the orange sparkle paper I think adds just the right touch.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card.
