Mojo 346

Well at least it’s Thursday! My week is still crawling along. My day was nice, the weather was pretty good again although tonight is supposed to start our five day stretch of rain. I have a little rant to share with you today. I’m really enjoying this new artist called Sam Smith. He has released a bunch of songs and I love every single one of them. His album comes out soon and I can’t wait. So I saw Tuesday that he is having a concert at the Apollo Theater in NYC and tickets went on sale yesterday morning. I was on TicketMaster at exactly 10:00am and all of the tickets were sold out. Really?! Around 12:00 I went on StubHub and sure enough there are all of these tickets available for three and four times the price. Call me crazy but I thought ticket scalping was illegal? If I was the artist I would be really annoyed that people that actually wanted to see me couldn’t now because TicketMaster is a scam. Sorry, just had to share, now back to our regularly scheduled levity! 🙂

So much going on the blog this week that I’m just getting to post my Mojo Monday card today! Our sketch this week is provided by Julee Tilman…


Fun, simple and it was one of those where I created the card in my little brain when I saw the sketch. My card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock. For my background I stamped the Hardwood Background Stamp on a piece of Very Vanilla in Baked Brown Sugar and backed it with a piece of Coastal Cabana. A strip of Bermuda Bay goes down the left side and also makes the two flagged strips under the circle. Speaking of the circle it is a piece of Coastal Cabana that I cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits and pierced around the edge with the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack. The shell is from the By the Seashore Stamp Set and is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar on Baked Brown Sugar and cut out with my Paper Snips. My greeting is from the Express Yourself Host(ess) Stamp Set and is also stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold the shell and circle to the card. Lastly I put some Basic Jewels Pearls on the strip down the left and the two flagged strips. I really love that Hardwood Background Stamp, the best wood stamp we have ever had, I think! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Your visits are always one of the best parts of my day, I thank you for stopping by and hope that you have a good Thursday! 🙂
