Happy Wednesday, I am a little late to the Mojo party but I am here. I am not sure I like this card, it took me forever to complete and I can see a half dozen points that don’t make me happy. I think it is my mind set today, I have been busy busy studying for an exam that I took today and passed but I am still not satisfied. What I really think I need is sleep :) I have been studying in my sleep apparently because I am waking up tired too.

Mojo Sketch
I started with cream and brown cardstock, the cream I have been using as the base for my cards for a while now but I just needed to use brown tonight too. I also really wanted to use my Stampin’ Up! Nature Walk stamp set and Botanical Gazette Designer Paper.

I brought a mini Bowdabra earlier this week, thanks to a Michaels 40% coupon. I do like the little bow I made with it tonight, I tried to take a nice macro enhanced photo of it but I was not able to make it clear.
The flower I made with the new Spellbinders- Bouquet miniabilites and used embossing power to make them a little sparkly. The bird and Thank you are also embossed using Craft Essentials Copper Embossing powder.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Stampin’ Up!, Inkadinkado- Thank you, Stampin’ Up!-Nature Walk, Spellbinders - Fleur De Lis Squares and Flower Bouquet Miniabilites, Making Memories brad, misc ribbon, Glitter Dome glitter dot, Craft Essentials Copper Embossing Powder



  1. Your cards are so beautiful!!!
    Come over to my blog and I have an award for you...

  2. Goodness Sis, whats not to like... to love? Your sleepy little brain is beating you up. Your card is gorgeous. I'm happy you were able to actually get it done with all you've been up against. I figured if YOU can do it (with an actual job and all) then I can too. Sheesh.

    BTW - I don't think I can do a DOUBLE bow with my two push pins and gyprock.

    Hope you get a good night of zzz's!

    Love, Sis

  3. I think you did a wonderful job Nina! I really like the edging on your cream paper...the inking or what have you :) I'm not really up to date on the lingo :)

    Hope you have a great end of the week and a great weekend...get some rest!
