Unscripted Sketch Card

I wanted to share a card I made for the Unscripted sketch challenge, I used black, marina mist, and river rock; this combo is lovely together!  The black really makes the blue pop.  I used the Verve set Psalm 46:1 and the SU embossing folder for the top embossed part.  The river rock designer paper is from the new SU neutrals designer paper pack.  Sorry for the super short post, I am creating and getting ready for the big sale I am having tomorrow with friends.  Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to check back I will have plenty of more posts this weekend....enjoy!

Girly Friends

Happy Friday gals, I received a nice surprise from my boss yesterday after getting home...he wanted to know if I wanted today off...aahhh that would be "YES".  I am home today preparing for a craft sale that a few of my friends and I are having.  We are making room for new stuff and decided to have a sale.  I wish you lived close by..*grin*.  For today's card I used Mercy's sketch from last week, MTSC91, 411 Color Challenge, to use black and pink, and today's F4A31, to use scallops.  I ran the circle through the polka dotted embossing folder and then added stickles to the polka dots to give some glitter.  I added pom pom ribbon down the side, some sponging, and framed it all with scalloped rectangles.  I hope your day is great and your weekend is even better, thanks for stpping by and leaving such sweet comments!  Enjoy.

Great Friend

Good morning, it is time for another mojo sketch, you can see the other mojo makers creation over at the Mojo Monday Blog. I have been wanting to use these jumbo flowers bling that I found at Micheal's dollar bin, so cute.  I cannot help myself, I adore the jumbo embellies....really makes a statement!  I thought it was perfect for this sketch, this is a fabulous sketch Julee has designed...lots of possibilities!  This is also my submission to Kim's Off The Wall Craftiness challenge, OTWC25; I used gray, white, pinks, and polka dots.  The sentiment is the Verve set Great Friend, the scallop edge is a Tim Holtz die, not real sure if I like it or not, but I am giving it a try.  I really like the shape but not sure about hw it works when cutting it.  I would like to know your thoughts if you have some of those TH dies....leave me a comment and tell me your opinion.  I hope you have a wonderful Monday and will have the opportunity to reach out to someone today and share a kind word or smile.....enjoy!

Mojo Monday Sketch

Good morning, I am sharing this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch, Mojo156; it is actually one of my sketches(thanks Julee for using it).  I flipped it to make a taller version of the sketch.  I used an older SU designer paper called Sweet Slumber on the back panel and then paper pieced the balloons with the same solid matching colors.  I used stickles on the balloons for a little dress up on the card.  I will be sending this card to OWH to celebrate their month long birthday celebration over at the Stars & Stripes Blog, otherwise I would have used gems or glitter.  Anything that can fall off is not acceptable for sending to the soldiers.  I hope that you can play along with this weeks mojo sketch and pair it up with the OWH celebration.  You can also win free Verve in the process, find out more here!  I hope your Monday is the start of a fantastic week...enjoy!
