Mojo 227 : happy birthday

It's my sister's 29th birthday on Saturday, so I thought I should get a card whipped up for her (last minute - that's how I roll lately!) After my 10K this morning (but before my 2 hours of snowboarding make up lessons), I pulled together a little mojo for this card. I just haven't been in any sort of groove lately, so even this simple card was a feat! Thankfully, this fabulous Mojo Monday 227 Sketch was a pretty simple one.

This card just called for me to use some of my Berry Bliss paper that's been kept for what seems like AGES (pretty sure it has been retired for quite a while) and one of my fave Verve birthday sentiments from Hope Blooms.

I hope to get into a better stamping routine soon, but life's been busy and it seems I'll be down to the wire on a valentine for MrP (so he may end up getting the Hugs card anyways - doesn't matter - it's right up his alley anyways for non-frilly).

As a bonus, I did just finish (officially) my snowboarding lessons today with the make up class(es), so I'm super pumped and ready to try a few other hills. Hopefully we'll get out to Jasper to use the lift passes that I won from my lessons!

Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful week. Hopefully I'll be back soon with some good news =)


  1. Okay.....simply mojo sketch...we have to talk LOL! After I stopped hyperventilating from seeing two skewed panels I managed to get it done, and it wasn't last minute LOL!

    You did a bang up job with it! Love that paper - who cards it is was retired long ago. Still looks fabulous :) Your multi-looped twine bow is gorgeous. I'm sure she will love it :)

    Well done on your snowboarding!! Whooo Hooo can see you carving a few turns with the greatest of ease :)

    Have a fabulous week (((hugs)))

  2. no wonder you have no time to stamp!! You are amazing with all the running, snowboarding, biking...I feel like a couch potato! That was beautiful paper and I'm so glad you brought it out of retirement :) Hope Bloom sentiments are the best...agree!

  7. Girl, I hear about wanting to get in a better stamping routine. It's something I've been struggling with lately too. But you have tons of good reasons for not being "routine" in terms of stamping, you are such an active person :) You are what I wish I could be! And still, you can pump out such lovelies like this stunner! Love the papers and the colors! The twine treatment and ribbon are BEAUTIFUL. I need to come by here more often - I always feel so inspired, physically and mentally, by your blog posts!
