A very good Thursday to you! It was overcast all day yesterday and is raining here this morning, it’s to rain all day. It’s supposed to be nice at the weekend so it’s all good right?! I went with Heather to see another apartment last night and she thinks that this is the one. She is going to go back on Friday with her mom to get another opinion and hopefully that will go well. It’s not an easy task to find an apartment in these parts! Ahh… and then the move, not my favorite for sure! At least she will be all settled before the holidays and that’s a good thing.
Today my post is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
I knew what I was going to do for the entire card except for one little piece. The card base for today is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Mossy Meadow. A strip of paper from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack goes across the middle and some Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker’s Twine is adhered around the back across the top before the base is mounted to the card. All of the images and greeting are from the Ornamental Pine Stamp Set, the pine needles are stamped in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and adhered to the card. I stamped the pinecones in Soft Suede and cut them out with my Paper Snips, a little Dazzling Details is added before adhering them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the greeting I used a pice of Soft Suede and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The bottom is flagged and that too is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Another piece of Soft Suede is punched with the Scallop Edge Punch and tucked under the stamped panel. Finally, the joy is from the Snowflake Card Thinlits and is cut from a piece of Cherry Cobbler and also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. That was the one thing that I couldn’t figure out what I was I was going to put there! I really do love Mossy Meadow for Holiday cards, especially when it’s paired with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I appreciate you taking some time to come and see me and I wish you a happy Thursday! 🙂
