Bright Happy Day – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Bright Happy Day – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Surprise! I’m back with post number two for today! Once a month I get to do a solo post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog and share a fun project with you using some goodies from one of my favorite companies! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog. While you’re there check out all of the other fabulous cards that the rest of the Team has created as we get ready for our next challenge coming up on June 9th! Today I’m sharing a single layer floral card!

I started by putting my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock into my Mini MISTI and stamping the greeting from the Enjoy it All Photopolymer Stamp Set in Peacock. I left the card in the MISTI and stamped the flowers and leaves from the set in Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum, Grape Soda, Juice Box, Jalapeño and Noble Fir. It needed some sparkle so I added a few Shimmering Pool Jewels and Lagoon Sequins Mix from Little Things by Lucy! A nice quick simple card that you could easily make multiples of and give as a gift!

I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook! We are getting ready to start our next challenge on June 9th, be sure to come back to see what the rest of my talented teammates have to inspire you for that one!

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

Farewell Mojo Monday

Farewell Mojo Monday

A very happy Monday to you all! I had such a great weekend! Yesterday morning I went to Target and picked up eight chairs for Jim, you would be surprised what you can fit in a convertible with the top down, it’s like a little pickup truck! LOL! We unloaded them and set them up on the patio and then got a bunch of other projects finished. He made a late breakfast of omelets, they were delicious. We took a ride to HomeGoods and he got a really nice rug for his den. For dinner he made Chicken Marsala that was amazing. A little TV and then I came home to see Taylor for a bit. He gave me some of the leftover Chicken Marsala which Taylor absconded with! I’ll be getting some crafty things done this morning, I believe that it’s supposed to rain today, good day for that! 😀

It is with great sadness that I share with you my last card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I can remember how excited I was when I found out that I was on the Design Team! It has been so much fun playing along each week with the rest of the Team. They are some of the nicest crafty peeps you could ever hope to know! And Julee is such a kind, sweet and talented person, I’m really going to miss her amazing sketches! But this is sketch 500 so I would say we have had a pretty good run!

I started my card off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The background is two pieces of paper from the Jen Hadfield DIY Home 6×6 Paper Pad. I added two strips of Heidi Swapp Glitter Washi Tape across the lower half of the card. The two vertical pieces of paper are Blushing Bride and Pool Party. My greeting is actually a Reverse Confetti Promo Stamp that Jennifer DelMuro sent to me for a card class that I had a while back. I heat embossed it in Simon Says Stamp Rose Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Smoky Slate and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. A fitting card to the end of an amazing challenge! I really hope that you enjoyed my final card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Please head over to the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us one last time! Thank you so much for sharing in my weekend and starting another week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂
