Mojo Returns

What a treat this card was to create! No stress since I'm already late, but I'm planning on dropping it off tonight for my friend who's birthday was on Monday and who's kids have Christmas presents currently sitting in my car.

I used Julee's Mojo 118 Sketch and it came together quite quickly once I chose which DSP I wanted to work with, which ended up being the Ginger Blossom retired paper. I popped up the balloons since that's a favorite stamp set to use for dimension and voila!

Stamps: Verve Circular Sayings, Party Time
Paper: River Rock, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Ginger Blossom DSP
Ink: Ruby Red, Cameo Coral
Accessories: CM Circle Punches, River Rock Ribbon

Last night I had a ton of things on my To Do list, which was only increased when I got home and discovered a Purolator package that was to be picked up after 7. When MrP finally got home from the west end (where he'd been bowling with his department for some Christmas festivities, then proceeded to pick up some new golf clubs), I was working on this card. Until I received a little surprise - a new cell phone. Well, a smart phone actually - and LG IQ. We'd checked it out when I left my cell phone in the cab after my company Christmas party, thinking it might be lost forever, but we got it back so I certainly wasn't expecting it. But I'm a nerd to the core and I love it!

So all of the rest of the evening's plans went down the drain when we started playing with it (downloading Facebook Mobile and all the other crap I could think of).

Tonight's our Christmas with MrP's family, so since I was up around 3 this morning, I went to work early so I could leave early and get done everything that I hadn't finished up last night. I'm sure I'll be asleep by 9!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. Beautiful, crisp clean looking card! Way to rock the sketch. I love those Verve ballons and a great idea to pop them up! It adds that perfect somethin' somethin' to the card!

  2. Oh, some Verve goodness! Circular sayings is one of the best sets, eh? Mine is very brown with use :) I only have a few stocking stuffers left :) Finally thought of a good gift for the dh...a handsfree device for his truck...our province has it going into law Jan 1st. Oh, the ribbon on the last card? No, wasn't from the mittens...I actually didn't use that image yet as I'm not a good colour-er!! and wasn't sure how to colour them...may print them out on watercolour paper and do them that way :) Want to enter the contest Julee has going until the 31st :) Have a fun up at work!! LOL
