Happy Tuesday,

It is sure nice to be home, although it means that my vacation is only a day from being over it is good to be in my home setting.

My sister was floored when I zoomed away from her place at 04:45 on Monday, the stars and moon were still out and the sun had not even started to peak over the horizon in her little pocket desert.  I however love how the roads are almost empty, and the empty desert road between Osoyoos and Keromeos is very dark with only night creatures out and about and it is such a  peaceful drive. There is also sheer beauty in seeing the sun come up as you drive along.

Enough of that, this is really a Mojo Monday post. I had time yesterday once I got home to make a card but I was content with un-packing and doing laundry. Today though I was free and clear to sit down in my craft area.

Isn't this a great sketch, today for me it was perfect for a masculine card. I used several different sections of a Hot Of the Press-Masculine sarapapers, I embossed each section with a Cuttlebug embossing folders. All the layers are popped up with foam tape.

Supplies: Kraft cardstock, Designer Paper-Hot off the Press, The stamps of Life-Happy2beCircles Set #8, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Spellbinders Nestabilites.
