Hello!

I realized today that I hadn't posted the two cards I made for the Mojo Monday sketch yet.  I've been so excited for these past warm and sunny days.  :)

TMS #394

Good Morning!

Tuesday Morning Sketches has 2 sketches this week!  I chose to do the square sketch this time, but I'll add both sketches here.

My take on the square sketch...

If I have time, I'll try and do the circle sketch also.
Have a great week!

Mojo Monday #488

Good Morning!

Mojo Monday posted their new sketch for the week yesterday.  I made two cards for this sketch, since I couldn't decide which one I wanted to make.  :)

The sketch...
On both cards, the long strip was made from an old kleenex box.  The bird image was cut from an old calendar and the cross image was something I had found online.  (Sorry, I forgot where I found it!)

My cards...



some close ups...

TMS #393

Good Morning!

I played along with Tuesday Morning Sketches today.

The sketch...
My take on this card is NOT the card I had envisioned when I started, it's not even the subject matter.  I had started out thinking I was going to do an Easter card with a Verve Stamp that I like and have never used.  When I went to grab the oval shape I wanted to use however, I found another that I had made awhile back and never used.  lol  (Sorry this is long!)
I also remembered something I had thought of last week while doing my TMS card.  As I glued that card together I was thinking of all the wasted paper that I used for backgrounds, which made me think.  I did not need to waste that paper.  I used my spellbinders A2 matting basics b die, which worked out great.

I glued my light blue paper onto a darker background, but I first cut out the inside of the dark blue paper.  The front...
the backside of this...
Such a simple thing, but it saves so much paper!

Ok, finally, on to my card!


I did the inside with a pocket, like usual.  I've also started adding a gem or something to add height to make opening the cards easier since mine are a bit top heavy.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Mojo Monday #487

Happy Mojo Monday!

It's contest week over at Mojo Monday's this week.

The Sketch...
Normally, with the big half circles like this, I use a doily, but I happened to have run out.  Not liking to cover up floral background paper, I decided to use vellum paper instead.  I really liked how different it looked.  I used a lot of gems, liquid pearls and stickles.
