Mojo Monday 457

Well, that was a busy Sunday! The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was very busy for a Sunday! We had some visitors from up-state New York and Melissa and her Mum came by to do the cards for this month’s class. My Mum and Dad stopped by too! I had a raging headache in the morning but thankfully two Excedrin did the trick to get rid of that. Well, that and the 8 cups of coffee that I had over the course of the day! It was another hot one too! Nice warm days make me appreciate my car even more! Dad changed the oil in the morning so she’s good for another 3,000 miles! I had dinner with my Parent’s and then I came home and worked on my card for today and took a nap! I was so tired all day! Today Renee has some people for a kid’s class and I have a Notions order arriving , I also need to place some more orders too! Oh how I thoroughly enjoy my job!

How do we love to start off the week? Why with a new Mojo Monday sketch challenge…


My card starts of with the usual base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front in a piece of Desert Storm 80lb and added a strip of Watermelon Wonder across the lower half. The large stitched panel is a piece of Tim Holtz Woodgrain Card. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to color it and then die cut it using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card Lawn Cuts. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The smaller square is another piece of Desert Storm 80lb that I stamped with the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background in Cup O Joe Ink. I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper. The pineapple, flowers and greeting are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Pineapple Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the pineapple in Butter Bar and Caramel Hybrid Ink for the bottom and Lime Green, Field Green and Forever Green for the leaves. The flowers are stamped in Passion Flower and Grape Soda with a little Memento Tuxedo Black for the centers. I used the Coordinating Frame Cuts to cut them out. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Perfect Plum and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I know, you were waiting for the sequins! LOL! Well I added some Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst, Shamrock and Lemon Drop ones! I think that pineapple and the flowers are so neat and the greeting is just great! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter you take on the sketch into the gallery! Thank you for beginning your week here! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

  1. Pineapples seem to be the trend, n’est pas? I like your color combos and slanted placements. We are in for thunderstorms and about an inch+ of rain. I have to go out to Book Club and I have two big bags of books to return, so I should be out in it.
    Grace, I live outside of Cincinnati, Ohio, but I was born and raised in Freehold, NJ. I have lived out here since 1979, more than half my life. I do miss the Coast from Florida to Maine. With my spine problems, I think my traveling days are at a huge standstill, but I still dream and live vicariously through Justin and all his blog readers!
    No more headaches, Justin! Get better soon, Taylor! Have a glorious, dry Monday! Hugs, Nancy B

    1. You would be correct Nancy! There is that purple again! LOL! We are getting heavy rain and thunderstorms here this afternoon. Stay safe out in all of that my friend!
      No more headaches for sure! They really know me for a loop. I’ll pass on your wishes to Taylor! I hope that you had a great Day! 🙂

  2. I see you finally got your pineapple stamp set! Love it!!!! And the orchids area nice touch. Grossly hot and humid here also, but it beats winter. Wow, you really know how to pack your days, I’m so glad ypu found your true calling

    1. LOL! Yes, I finally did Linda! I love it too! It’s fun that it has a few other images in it. It was hot and humid here yesterday but it’s a little cooler here today. I do like to keep busy! I’m happy that I get to do something that I love! 🙂
