Mojo 325 & Sneak Peek

Happy Christmas Eve! I guess I’d better get to my shopping at some point today! LOL! Nothing like waiting until the last minute! Work was blissful yesterday, there wasn’t much going on and it was quite desolate! Love it when it’s like that! My friend Andrew is having eye surgery this morning so if you would keep him in your thoughts I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Today I have my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. This week the clever Theresa Kline has given us a nice simple one…


I was inspired by Mary Fish’s card that she has done for the sketch. I really like the piece missing out of the background. The base of my card is So Saffron Card Stock. I took a piece of Coastal Cabana and used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the circle from the lower left. After that I embossed it with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Starburst Saying Stamp Set* and is stamped in Tangerine Tango and cut out with the Starburst Framelits*. Some more Stampin’ Dimensionals hold that to card. The strip across the top is a piece of Whisper White that I covered with some Retro Fresh This & That Designer Washi Tape* and that too is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A simple but fun and colorful card. I really do like the starburst goodies a lot, can you tell! LOL! Thanks you for taking some time out of your busy Holiday preparations to check out my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I hope that you all have a lovely Christmas Eve!
