Mojo Monday 447

What started out to be a rainy day turned into a nice sunny one! YAY! When I took the train into Manhattan it was pouring, by the time I got up to 86th Street it had stopped. I went to see my friends Jon and Mary, they are going to Paris and Europe for a few weeks! So jealous! From there I headed down to The Ink Pad to surprise Anna with a visit! Alway nice to see her! My friend Kim came and met me at the store and we went and had Chipotle for lunch. From there we walked up 6th Avenue and stopped in some stores along the way. We ended up at Gregory’s Coffee and both had cappuccinos. They had some latte art on them…

Gregory's Coffee Latte Art

Now there is something that you don’t get at Starbucks and the coffee was delicious! We said our goodbyes and I ran to get the 4:12 train, and made it! So many people on there with suitcases heading for Jamaica so they could change for the Air-Train to JFK. They never are good with their bags and you always end up getting whacked with one or two! Taylor got me from the station and dropped me off at home. I had a quick dinner with my parents and then watched Jurassic World for like the 10th time! Love that movie! Today I’ll be at Scrap-A-Latte minding the store for Renee, stop by and say hi if you are in the area!

It’s Monday and you know what that means, time for another fun Mojo Monday sketch…


I received my Hero Arts May Kit the other day and wanted to use the neat Gift Card Die that came with it! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Black 110lb with the We R Memory Keepers Dotted Next Level 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner. My two circles on the top right and bottom left are Silver Foil Sheet and are punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I adhered them to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up is a piece of Pear Pizzaz and across that peeking out just barely is a piece of Pool Party. I cut the out the gift card holder with the Die from the kit from a piece of Bermuda Bay. On a piece of Vellum I heat embossed the Thank You, also from the kit, in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder. I wrapped it around the gift card holder and adhere it to the card. A few Aqua and Sliver Sequins along with some Pretty Pink Posh Lime Sorbet, Black and Aquamarine Sequins are adhered to the card leavingΒ the piece under the gift card empty so you can pull out the envelope. I think that makes a pretty neat way to give a gift card to someone, don’t you?! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of my talented Teammates have come up with to inspire you and add your creation to the gallery! Thank you so much for starting another week off with me! Have a magnificently amazing Monday! πŸ™‚

  1. Pretty neat Justin and I really think that cutting the partial circles from the foil is impressive. Of course, anything shiny goes on my favorites list! Glad you got to spend some time in Manhattan although I’m surprised you went in the rain, that wouldn’t be fun. I think it’s fabulous that you take over the shop so Renee can have a day off once in a while and you get to see and play with all the new stuff.

    Due to the weather forecast I may leave a day early as I’ve done the drive to my daughter’s in the rain and it isn’t fun, especially driving through 495 in Massachusetts. That is one highway that is always crowded with people in a hurry and is the worst part of the trip for me. I hope you have a fun filled day today. Love and Hugs, XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Grace! I too am a big fan of anything shiny! SEQUINS! LOL! It rained in the morning but it got so nice and sunny and warm! It was nice to just walk down the street and stop in the stores! No time that I had to be back! I lie days like that! I’m glad that I can help out Renee! She is a good person!
      Oh no! I hope that the weather cooperates! Yes, I’m not a fan of 495, all of the roads here are like that! I used to like to drive, not so much anymore! Have a super day! XOXO πŸ™‚

  2. I love your take on the sketch from the colors, the gift card, the sequins and the silver embossed greeting. Just a lovely card. One of the many things I like about your blog is how you never seem to run out of new, creative ideas using products in new ways. You’re always inspiring us and I thank you for that. Take care. Enjoy your day. Glad you got to spend some time with your mum yesterday.

    1. Thank you HJ! I’m so happy that I still can come up with new and creative ideas and that I still get to inspire you! I like to get to spend a little time with my Mum everyday! Have a wonderful day! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Linda! I do like the kit, the die is great! It’s sold out unfortunately! πŸ™‚

  5. I used to live on 88th and York. After I moved to AZ I learned about the Ink Pad and on a trip back for a visit to family, I took myself on a field trip to see the shop. I loved it and – of course – did some shopping. You brought me some nice memories today.

    1. Oh wow Linda! I have been over there loads of times! I love The Ink Pad and am glad that you got to go there! It’s a great little store! πŸ™‚
