I can’t believe that it’s Thursday already!! Not that I’m complaining, but the week seems to be moving along doesn’t it?! I had a nice day at work yesterday. The purchasing manager asked me if I wanted to go on a field trip with her and of course I said yes! We went to Walmart to get supplies to set up an apartment for someone. It was fun with two shopping carts full of stuff that kept falling out! I do love a field trip! When I got home last night I made a card and then went to see Kim and Heather for a glass of wine. Heather and I ran to BJ’s and then I came home and made another card. A little addicted maybe?! LOL!
For today’s post I have my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge from Debbie Carriere…
I love the tilted panel and the banners but I did have to think about this one for a while. I wanted to use some Sale-A-Bration goodies since sadly it’s almost over. If you want some Sale-A-Bration you have until Monday people! My card starts off with a base of Sahara Sand Card Stock and my tilted background is a piece of Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper. The greeting is from the Simply Celebrate Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black. I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Pistachio Pudding and another piece of Sweet Sorbet DSP to create the backdrop for my flowers. The flowers are form the Petal Parade Stamp Set and are stamped in Pool Party and Summer Starfruit, the large one is punched out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and the smaller one with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. My banners are Pool Party punched out with the Banner Punch. The flowers are from the Banner Blast Stamp Set and are stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe and punched out with the Itty Bitty Shaped Punch Pack. In the middles are Basic Jewels Pearls. A Subtles Designer Series Button with some twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack is adhered to the card with some Mini Glue Dots. I think that I got a good amount of Sale-A-Bration products on the card and the greeting is fun because it looks like it’s written with a marker. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Don’t forget to get your Sale-A-Bration items while you still can! I appreciate you taking some time to come and see what I’m up to and hope that you all have a terrific Thursday! 🙂
