Mojo Monday Challenge.....

This is the sketch for today's Mojo Sketch Challenge. Play along at Julee has always got a great sketch to get your creative juices flowing. I also used the CAS challenge with this card. We were to remake the card making it a CAS card (clean and simple) I will have to say that for this sketch I like the "dolled" up one much better!! I used Green Galore and Only Orange today--I was feeling alittlt bright and sassy!! I mother was hoping this was a color challenge--cause why else would I put those colors together!! :-)
So let me know what you think--dressed up or clean and simple??

Blessed to call you.....Sister!!

Today's challenge over at SCS was to make a vintage card. Julie, the challenge hostess, wanted us to even use something that really was old and would fit into the vintage theme. I found an old dresser scarf that I cut the vine needle work out of for my vintage element--sponged it with Choc. Chip ink to give it an even older look. I also used the Mojo Monday sketch for my lay out. Julee (two Julee's today) always does such a good job of stirring up inspiration with her fantastic sketches!! My stamps are from Verve, always like to use them when doing a Mojo challenge, they are from the Because of You set.

I have a fantastic sister that this card would be perfect for!! Right now we are counting the days until we get to see each other. She lives in Florida and I am in Virginia--that is way to far away!! Anyway, Oct 10th will be here before we know it!! YEAH!! Sandi, I really am blessed to call you my SISTER!! Love ya!!

It has been ages.......

It has been ages since I have gotten to be on here!! Being gone this summer for 3 weeks has made it impossible to get back into the normal swing of things, plus my daughter came home from camp with the Swine Flu, and then it was back to school time. Yikes.....and before you know it, it has been over a month since I have been on my blog!! I have missed it and I am looking forward to stamping and blogging once again!!

Here is my card for today's color challenge. I love this color combination--Kraft, Choc. Chip, and Real Red. My Real Red doesn't look to real because I sponged Choc Chip ink all over it. I did alot of sponging on this card, but not alot of stamping. Actually, I didn't do any, all of the images are rub-ons!! Yeah, for rub-ons. The only thing I don't like is that once you use a rub-on it is gone.....but they are so fun and the make great cards and are fantastic for memory albums.
I also was wondering what you think about the photo?? My darling husband got me a photo cube for my birthday with great lights....I love it and I think it makes the cards look alot more real to life. Maybe it is just me because I have a new toy......I will take some pictures and write more about it later!! Bye for now!!
