I finally got all the Christmas stuff put away so I can now get back into my room. I decided to jump into Julee's Mojo Monday
challenge. I had to get busy making some Valentine's cards, so I chose Verve's
Heart to Heart stamps for my card. It's an oldie but a goodie. I stamped the hearts and cut them out. I mounted the smaller heart in the middle with some foam tape for dimension. I also matted it with some pink cardstock to make it pop. For the patterned paper, I used Basic Grey's Sugared paper pad. I don't think I had used it before now. Typical. I tied a piece of matching ribbon around and done.

Nothing like waiting until the last minute to complete a sketch. When I saw Jen Del Muro's
card at my local scrapbook store, I had to have this stamp set by The Cat's Pajamas
. Her card totally inspired mine for this week's Mojo Monday
I stamped Dracula on some white cardstock and colored him with Copics. I mounted that on a piece of kraft cardstock that I had stamped using the VersaMark pad. I mounted everything on a piece of patterned paper I got out of my Halloween pile and I'm digging the end result.
This card I did I couple of week's ago for Mojo Monday 157
. I'm not sure why I never uploaded it. I bought this cute little stamp set by My Mind's Eye at one of the local scrapbook stores. Isn't that little witch adorable? I absolutely love Halloween!

Well, with the kids finally back in school, I may be able to get some cards done. This week's Mojo Monday
sketch was challenging for me. I wasn't totally psyched about it, but I managed to churn something out. I bought these Spellbinders Shapeabilities pendants and they've just been sitting on my desk. I was looking at them and realized that one of them was the perfect size for the squares in the sketch. I knew I wanted to do a Halloween card, but finding the right stamps was the challenging part. I needed small stamps to layer on top and these were the only ones I could find. I may have to go shopping!
I basically just stamped the images on white cardstock and colored them with my Copics and cut those suckers out. I used one of the small Nestabilities circles under the images and foam tape for a little lift. Mounted everything on this green patterned paper and done!

Do you have an image in your head of how you want your card to turn out, but 9 times out of 10 it doesn't look anything like you had imagined? Or is it just me? Well, this is number 10 of 10. It actually looks like I had imagined. When I saw this week's Mojo Monday
sketch, I knew exactly what stamps, paper and dies I wanted to use. I don't know about you, but that like never happens to me.
The main image is from the Up, Up and Away set from Verve
and I colored it with Copics. All the patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Oliver paper pad. For the clouds and the eyelet border, I used Papertrey Ink's
dies. I thought they were a perfect fit for the card!

I can't remember the last time I did one of Julee's Mojo Monday
sketches. I thought I would pull out some older Verve
stamps too. For the patterned paper, I used a combination of October Afternoon's Fly a Kite and SEI's Happy Day that my mom got me for my birthday. I stamped the stars and colored them with my Copics. I oh so carefully cut them out and mounted them with foam tape on the white squares. I tried to match the colors of the Copics with the paper the best I could. (Note to self...need to buy more Copics!)
Sorry for the bad lighting. It's almost dark here and I couldn't take it in my usual spot.
Just a quick post because I'm almost at the deadline for entering this bad boy! Thanks for stopping by!Happy Birthday:Stamps:
