Mojo 225: Happiness and Candy

I have had a picture in my head of how I wanted to assemble this week's Mojo sketch for Challenge 225, and this is *close* to my vision... not the look I wanted, but still cute. In any case, here it is!
Flowers: Prima
Beige accenting: Scribbles puff paint (shhhhh...)
Papers: Bulk cardstock, October Afternoon "Farmhouse", parchment, and old sheet music
Adhesive: Viva Las Vegastamps miracle tape, Glue dots, Roxanne Glue-baste-it
Ribbon: Bulk
Note: Happiness and Candy were the names of Andy's childhood's neighbors' dogs (did I just do my grammar properly???), and I love putting that on cards. A good phrase.


Just whipped this card up... I am so pleased with it!

Brass tacks:
Pearls: K & Company
Button Tag and Banner DP: October Afternoon "Farmhouse" line
Paper from an old encyclopedia
Blue Ribbon: Michaels
Elastic trim and cardstock: bulk

Thinking of Eva

This poor card has been in the works for months... it finally came together! It was sent to a friend who is recovering from illness-- it seems perfect for that.

Mojo 224: Happy Birthday

Captain Obvious speaking.  This is my card for Mojo 224.  Been wanting to use this kraft paper from MME for a month now, and finally decided to bust it out with the latest Mojo challenge.  The paper really says "Mexico" to me, but this ended up western-y (again: to me... maybe not to anyone else!)  In any case, I think it's a pretty cute card, and I still plan to use the kraft line like crazy, until I run out of it and wish I'd purchased 4 sheets of each.

Happy Birthday... Mojo 224!

Bird Nerd!

Geeky Girl

Geeky Girl, Bird-Nerd!

I have been crazy about this particular selection of papers I mixed together-- like I told you, Andy, these are either the coolest cards I have ever made... or the ugliest!  But I continue to love them and so maybe other people will, too!  I bet my sister will think these are cool... or, then again, ugly!  Here are a couple, posted above...

The paper selection includes DPs from Studio Calico, BoBunny, Crate Paper, along with some bulk parchment.  The grey pom-poms are from MME, the red pom-poms are Berwick.  The red rose was made from old seambinding (thanks, grandma), using a Cosmo Cricket gluber!  Hope you likey.

Two New Cards!

My sweetly supportive husband has urged me to post a couple recent cards... I think they turned out well!

The plaid card was made using BG's "Little Black Dress" line-- with such a gender-specific title, it's funny that I made a man's card with it!  I also used Glitz bling and puff paint, and slapped it all on 60# parchment!  This was for my BIL's 31st... I heard he liked it a lot, and he and my sister are definitely cool, so I feel proud.

The super-sweet (pun intended) birthday card was made for my dear friend Vicki.  She is an excellent baker (particularly muffins and cupcakes!), so I came up with this!  Darnit: not sure who made the awesome cupcake DP.  The yellow cardstock was just bulk cardstock from a local shop, and the border was made with a MS punch (duh). Used the Colorbox chalk Toffee, I believe, for edges, etc.  Flower was from a bulk purchase.
