MOJO76 and LSC210

Good afternoon! I wanted to post my first Mojo Monday challenge card asap cuz I am so excited that I finally checked out the Mojo Monday sketch blog for the first time to see what it is all about! WOW! There are some pretty talented ladies over there! They have a new sketch posted every Monday and lots of samples from their DT. Ya gotta check it out! I actually started out this morning at SCS to see today's Limited Supplies Challenge. It's a good one, to make a card in 30 minutes or less. A definite challenge for me. In order for me to come up with something that fast I need a starting point. I have heard so many folks talk about Mojo Monday that I went myself! And what did I find? An awesome sketch to try out! Here is the card that I made. And here is my recipe:
Stamps: Fluffles - Stampendous, Sweet Little Sentiments- Stampin' Up!
Paper: Bazzill cs, My Minds Eye dp, watercolor paper
Ink: Stazon On Jet Black, Chocolate Chip (SU)
Accessories: ribbon by American Crafts, paper piercer and mat pack
After I finished this one I made another! Now I gotta link this back to the MM blog!
Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by!

SC218 Hubby's Birthday

Wow! It has been kinda crazy for me the past few days. I made it over to Splicoaststampers to check out today's challenge, SC218. Friday is my wonderful hubby's birthday and I still needed to make his card so I decided to use this fun layout. Here is the full recipe ( all products are Stampin' Up! except for the DP):
Stamps: Owl Together Now
Paper: Night of Navy, Sage Shadow, Confetti white, Making Memories DP
Ink: Basic Black, Night of Navy, Sage Shadow, Basic Gray, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Sarhara Sand, Mellow Moss, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: silver brads, hemp twine, Big Shot, CB swiss dots embossing folder, Lots of Tags die, sponges, circle punches, aqua painters
The images were colored using an aqua painter and my SU! ink pad lids and then sponged on the edges with Night of Navy ink. The sentiment is on dimensionals. The Sage Shadow panel was run through the Big Shot with the CB Swiss Dots EF. This went together pretty quick and easy. I hope he likes it!
Thanks for stoppin' by!!
