Hello there! One day down, four more to go! How was your Monday? Mine was actually pretty good. I had techniques class last night and we always have a great time. I have to say that if I could craft all day I would be the happiest person on the planet! Steve Jobs once said that “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” I have definitely found what I want to do!!
Tuesday means it’s time for this week’s Mojo Monday post. Julee Tilman has provided us with a nice sketch this week…
I have some more Valentine’s cards to make so I thought this would be a great sketch for that. I used my favorite stamp set, that unfortunately didn’t carry over, Affection Collection. My card starts off with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The background is created with a piece of Pool Party embossed with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the square of Primrose Petals on top of that I used the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card with SNAIL. The piece of paper is from the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack and is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A thin piece of Basic Gray is embossed with the Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The greeting and the image behind the greeting are from the Affection Collection Stamp Set (Vintage). I stamped the scalloped image in Pool Party and cut it out with my Paper Snips. The love is stamped in Primrose Petals and punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A button from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack has some Pool Party Bakers Twine threaded through and is adhered with a Mini Glue Dot. I love the way that all of the elements of the card go together and the Pool Party/Primrose Petals color combo with the slivers of Basic Gray is just great. I hope that you enjoyed my Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card for this week. I really appreciate your visit and hope to see you back soon! Have a lovely day!
