Yesterday was a very quiet day. Not a lot went on and that can be a nice change sometimes. I have to decided whether or not to move my blog to a hosted server today or keep it with WordPress. I will have to do this on Friday at some point because I have left it to the last minute. After reading up on the move on-line it sounds simple and pretty straight forward but we all know how that goes! Hopefully there will be no issues and it will be a smooth transition. Fingers crossed everyone! 🙂
I almost forgot about the Thank You Thursday deals for this week and there are some great Big Shot products for you! Please see below! 🙂
Remember, these deals are only available today!
I’m a little late getting my Mojo Monday card up this week but I have it for you today. This week’s sketch is provided by the talented Julee Tilman…
I went back and forth about what I was going to do with the circle, a rosette, an image, it went on for a while but I finally settled on an image. The base of my card is Rose Red Card Stock, a color that I haven’t used in a very long time. My background is a piece of Modern Medley Designer Series Paper. The strip across the lower half is a piece of Basic Black that I embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed it with a piece of Rose Red. I adhered a piece of “Vintage” Very Vanilla 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the back, added the flags that I cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and I used Multi-Purpose glue to adhere it to the card. The flower is from the Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set and is stamped in Rose Red and cut out with my Paper Snips. I choose the greeting form the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set, stamped it in Rose Red and backed it with a piece of Basic Black. The little black heart is punched out using the Owl Builder Punch and some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold all of the pieces to the card. Finally I knotted another piece of the ribbon to complete the card. As I’m looking at the card it kind of reminds me of the candy Good ‘n Plenty! LOL! Thank you so much for stopping by to see my Mojo Monday card for this week’s sketch challenge. It’s almost Friday so have a super day! 🙂
