Sketch Frenzy Friday & Mojo Monday Cards

Whew, squeaked in a Mojo today – thank goodness I did my Sketch Frenzy Friday  card yesterday… though – I must admit I am really not so impressed with my Friday card, it looks so simple beside the Mojo.  How does that happen?  For one thing I think its because the Mojo sketch was pretty detailed and also that I used a high quality Designer Paper for that one.  You get what you pay for, right?



And here is my (very simple take) on this sketch:


I don’t know the make of paper but the stamps are from TPC Study – Celebration.  You really cannot see the shimmer and glimmer of that little gift, I should have taken a close up pic but I took this indoors because the day was so grim outside.  The FUN part of this card is that my SIL Judy and I are doing this one together!  I am trying to hurry hurry to scoot over and see what she’s created, bet its fabulous!

Mojo Monday 211


This sketch made me work much harder and this is our “family” challenge – my sister Nina, sister in law Judy, her beautiful daughter Sam and I all do this challenge. 

Here’s my version:


Ok, so cracking out a brand spanking new good quality DP helps – this is mainly created from a BoBunny – a gift of love paper. Two sided, the paper matches nicely.  The bulb is the only part that’s from the scrap of a paper I fished out from my last project – no name can be found. 


Another of my “frizzly” sheer bows – I draw my heated embossing gun over the ribbon from a fair distance and it makes it go curly.  Adds that vintage look.


And just a few posts ago I gave YOU the cut files for this pretty ornament!  Add a little golden twine and it dresses things up perfectly.

Thanks for stopping by.  I’m working on some more cut files for YOU in the coming days – stay tuned!
