Mojo Monday 495

Home / Blog / Mojo Monday 495

I had a quiet Sunday. I had a little work to do for a friend on the computer, cleaned a bit and watched far too much TV. It was sort of overcast most of the day and a little chilly too. I had thought about going into Manhattan but then decided that I didn’t feel like taking the train or driving in so that took care of that. I guess it was a relaxing day, although I did find it a bit boring. Today back to the Store and I will fill the day with some craftiness, that always makes the day better! πŸ˜€

It’s Monday people and time for a new Mojo Monday sketch…

This card came out of nowhere! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the background is a piece of Kraft. I used the Hero Arts Skylines Fancy Dies to cut out a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock for the buildings and some Gold Mirror Card for the Bridge. The buildings are adhered to the card with a strip of Battleship Gray underneath. I adhered the bridge to a piece of Chinese Red, trimmed of the excess and adhered the square to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next I die cut the happy from the Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set from a piece of Solar White 110lb, heat embossed the birthday in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Black and adhered the happy to the top and then the black to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I will admit that I wasn’t really sure as I was putting the card together but I really do like the finished product, especially the colors! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge!

  1. Love this card Justin! Of course glitter paper and foil paper combined with these fabulous dies really makes for a WOW card. You did a great job with this challenge for sure.

    I can’t believe you had a day you could have gone into the City and didn’t! You must be getting the flu or something. It does sound like you got to relax for a bit and that is so, so important. Rainy and yukky here today and it’s supposed to be like this most of the week ahead. I would like a bit of sunshine but you have to work with what your given. LOL You have yourself a Memorable Monday my friend. Love and hugs to you. XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Grace! I do love a little sparkle just as much as you do!
      I know, it’s very unlike me to not go into the city, but I waited too long and then just lost the urge. I have been trying to relax, it’s not easy! LOL! πŸ™‚

  2. love this! ThoseSkyline diesae so cool. Relaxing is good…

    I swear it will never stop raining here! And cold, down to upper 30’s tonight. Weather folks say we are in an”indescrminate” pattern of rain till the end of the week. I love their terminology. Just say, “non stop rain, mostly heavycausing flooding, heavy winds and darn cold., LOL Oh well…. cant do much about it

    1. Thank you Linda! Yup, I do love those dies!
      We don’t usually get Spring, winter straight to summer so I guess we shouldn’t complain! The weathermen do try to sugarcoat it don’t they?!

  3. What a neat birthday card, Justin. I love the skyline and all the different elements you used to make the perfect card. Great take on the sketch. Enjoy your week.
