A Mojo Birthday!


That's right...I am officially one year older today! To celebrate, I will be having a delicious candy offering! I promise it's coming...I'm working on getting a photo of it. :)
In the mean time, I got to use another new stamp set from Verve Stamps, and although I didn't get to use my most favorite sentiment from it, I was still a happy stamper! This card followed the Mojo Monday Sketch #70. It also serves a purpose! I am sending this to a friend who is having a rough time in her personal life. I hope that she likes it. Can ya tell I'm totally loving the Bittersweet designer paper by Basic Grey? I actually spent a long time on this card...a REALLY long time, lol! The greeting is actually stamped on vellum in chocolate craft and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I had every intention of layering it over a piece of designer paper, but it was just too busy. I ended up layering it over a piece of the solid designer paper that came in the set...go figure! My scalloped circle was cut with a Nestability and then run through my Big Shot with the Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder. I then placed it back in the Scalloped circle die and embossed the outer edge. I sponged Creamy Caramel on top and still wasn't happy with it, so I took Liquid Pearls in Platinum and put them at all intersections. I then randomly put them on the strip with hearts. Whew! That was a mouthful! Cardstock used was Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red.

I was also recently given this award from Pamela with Firecracker Designs. Thanks Pamela! So sweet of you to think of me for this! I'm now supposed to list the Five things I obsess over. This is a toughie!

1. Being "connected." Oh man, I LOVE being online. I constantly check email, CNN, People, Google Reader, and the Anthropologie website. It doesn't help that I got an Iphone for my birthday and a netbook to tote around the house.

2. I have a hard time just sitting and doing nothing. Like, if I watch TV, I either have to be folding clothes or on the treadmill. That's just the way it goes.

3. Jagged nails. I can't stand it. I have nail files all over my house....and in my car too.

4. Candy. I'm such a sucker...literally.

5. Games. I love to play games...primarily console or computer games. I tend to get a little obsessed with winning too. :)

If you've made it this far...bless you! LOL! Thanks for stopping in.

Melissa,
Happy belated Birthday to you! I love your blog and your work! I miss seeing my sideline, but things just haven't lined up for me lately. I hope to see Kathy's swap cards from Saturday's team shoebox swap. I was at a SCS swap in San Antonio that was for 50 cards...what fun! Thanks again for the inspiration!
Hugs,
Mona
