Happy Halloween!!!


Hey everyone! Just sneaking in quickly on a gorgeous Saturday morning here to wish you a Happy Halloween and share with you my Mojo Monday card of the week. :) Yesterday I had a helluva day and decided at the very last minute....around 6 PM to be exact, to get some stamping therapy with a good friend over at Archiver's. I had just received my Holly Jolly set from Verve earlier this week and just couldn't wait to get it inky! I chose the color scheme based on the latest Moxie Fab Challenge to use rich plum hues. And I really had some visions of grandeur for this card...I had it all planned how it was going to look and what I was going to use and just nothing worked out the way I planned! BUMMER! So I'm not altogether thrilled with how it turned out, but at least I had a good time.

*Not stamping related*
I just had to share my latest Itunes download with you! As you may (or may not!) know, I'm a huge fan of So You Think You Can Dance and I was lucky to attend the tour from Season 5 this past Tuesday evening. One of my favorite routines by the uber talented Emmy award winner, Mia Michaels was performed and I immediately went home to download the song, Koop Island Blues. What a GREAT stamping song!! Love the jazzy, French, romantic feel of it. Check out the routine! LOVE IT!

PS. Let the video download first!


Enjoy!

I love this card- it is a great one by the uber talented you. I really enjoyed seeing the video again too. Mia Michaels rocks but my favorite of hers has to be the one with Kayla and Kupono. It is the one where she is an addict and he is the addicition. He looks so spooky in this one. Keep up the great work and the wonderful inspiration you give us.
