Mojo Monday/MOJO377-Thoughts & Prayers

I had such fun with today's Mojo Monday sketch, I need to make a few cards for a basket donation I am giving to my church. I used the colors from The Color Throwdown, I was so intimated at But, once I started pulling all of the elements out I really like the color combo. I have used the awesome sentiment stamp from the Verve set Inspire Hope. Hope your Christmas week is an awesome celebration with family and friends....sparkle & shine!

Winter Wishes

I have played along with Retro Sketches and Card Concept, using the Winnie and Walter set called Big Bold Seasons. I have used a Bazzil chipboard snowflake for the focal point, I covered it with the amazing Tim Holtz Pumice Stone glitter, I adore this color and the shimmer of the TH glitter! I had a blast with this winter glittery snowflake card, I hope to have lots more to share with you over the next two weeks....I do not go back to work until Monday, January 5...YAY....sparkle & shine!

Mojo Monday/MOJO37-Happy Birthday Hon

Hello and welcome, I cannot believe we are so close to the end of another year....WOW...where does the time go? My dh has a birthday this week and we call each other "hon"...hence the titale, this is his birthday card. He has come to expect a little bling/shimmer for his birthday...teehehehe. I did try to make it masculine, I kept the shimmer low key. I have used one of my all time favorite birthday sentiments, it is the Verve Plain Jane; it is a little larger....perfect for the front of a card. I hope you have a super week, enjoy each moment; they seem to go so fast....sparkle & shine!

Happy Birthday

I so luv the sweet inspiration photo from Cure For The Monday Blues, I do not need anymore Christmas cards; so I created a birthday card. I used a piece of designer paper of the world map, it was inspired by the "not a creature was stirring" statement. I went with kraft, whites, and texture. I discovered the NEW challenge called Show CASe Your Style, wow, what great challenges they are bringing....this weeks is a sketch! I have used lots of great stuff from the Simon Says Stamp Store, click on the links below to check'em out....sparkle & shine!

I used a chevron stencil from Memory Box and left the embossing paste "chunky"...I luv the depth it gives when it is textured. Hope you are creating something fun today....sparkle & shine!
