Mojo Monday 462

Hello and welcome to Monday, sponsored by the Mojo Monday Sketch! LOL! It was a pretty overcast day here yesterday and started raining around 6:00PM. I spent a little time with my buddy Daniel in the morning! The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store had a steady flow of customers, Melissa and her mom stopped by and we chatted for a while! I had dinner with my Parents when I got home and then sat down and watched some TV. A nice way to end the weekend and get ready for the busy week ahead!

Yes, it’s Monday and that means that it’s time for another Mojo Monday sketch…


I went with a bright sunny card to chase away the rain! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the PhotoPlay Summer Daydreams Line called Swinging in the Clouds. The strips across the bottom are Candied Yam and Moonstone Blue. Next up is a piece of Vellum that I adhered to the card with E-Z Runner, hiding under the main panel. Speaking of the main panel it’s a piece of Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper that I heat embossed the sentiment from the Concord & 9th Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder and then did a wash over it with my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors. It’s adhered to the card with Tombo Extreme and Fun Foam. The bear and oranges are from the same set and are also heat embossed in Clear on Arches and colored in with my Watercolors. I cut them out with my Scissors and adhered them to the card with 3D Foam Squares. A few Pretty Pink Posh Tangerine, Lemon and Cobalt Sequins compete the card! I love that little bear and the orange slices but my favorite is that fun greeting! Who wouldn’t want to be freshly squeezed with a hug?! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with to inspire you and add your card to the gallery! Thank you very much for starting your week off here! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

  1. Very cute, Justin. That is a cute greeting. Your color washes are great and your fussy cutting too. What a fun card. Glad you had a great Sunday. Enjoy today. I’m enjoying my Nuvo drops and that I don’t get the Hershey kiss swirl at the top, but perfectly round dots. Thanks for letting me know about them.

    1. Thank you HJ! I love that greeting with the oranges and the bear! I have a long way to go until I get the watercoloring down! I hope that you had a good day! Yay! So glad that you like your Nuvo Drops! Thanks for getting them from us! 🙂

  2. Good Afternoon Justin! What a fun, colorful card you have for us today. That should chase the clouds away and you’re right, I think we all love a good hug!

    Today it feels like fall here. We had a good soaking rain last night which was very much needed in this area. There is quite a breeze out there today and it’s a cool one. AHHHHH – fall is on the way. I’m excited to think about making apple pies and lots of soups for the freezer. We are headed to Olive Garden for a nice lunch and some shopping. I’m glad for the lunch out but I really don’t like to shop anymore. I don’t know why because shopping was always so much fun in times past. Well, you have yourself a Motivated Monday and get a lot done at the store. Love and hugs to you my friend. XXOO 🙂

    1. Hi there Grace!
      Who doesn’t love a good hug! I like to be freshly squeezed as much as possible!
      It feels like fall here today too. I’m not linking it, it’s too early! LOL! I’m glad that you got your rain! Shopping is annoying these days, I completely agree! I hope that you had a nice lunch! I love the Olive Garden! Their salad and breadsticks are the best! So much to do this week! Hope someone comes up to help!! Love and hugs to you too! XOXO 🙂

  3. Love how you used the bear as the long vertical element in your card—-so clever. That’s an adorable sentiment!!

  4. Cute! Love the bright colors. We had heavy rain here on and off for three days, but… it is GORGEOUS!!!!! Upper 70’s and no humidity. Finally a break. I did get my dT projects done, finally and had some personal craft time. Over all a great W/E

    1. Thanks Linda! It’s the same weather wise here! I prefer it to be a little hotter! But it’s not too bad. Glad that you got all of you DT stuff done and still had time to play! YAY! 🙂

  5. I have a few other items on my wish list I need to check with you on. Thanks so much for all your help. Have a great day!

    1. Ok, HJ! You can always give the store a call or send me and email I’m happy that I get to help you! Enjoy your day! 🙂
