Monday morning mojo.....

Good Monday morning! It's chilly and WHITE again here in central Alberta. I woke up at 3 a.m. to a good howling wind and snow blowing like crazy...typical spring storm here :o) DH had to leave today for Lloydminster so I got up and got him out the door and sat down with a strong cup of java to scope out some challenges.....

I promptly went over to The Shabby Tea Room to see what they had in store for us this week and they want us to create a "spring-themed" card/creation.

I hopped over to see what sketch was at Mojo Monday and Sarah put up a very cool, interesting one this week! I love it!! Here it is: ..and I remembered this *challenging* color combo from Stacey over at Stacey's Stamping Stage and I knew i could come up with something "spring-ish" from that!!! RIGHT?!?

I must admit, I struggled with the color placement with those colors. I took the yellow out, put the yellow in....took the red out, put the red in, took the polka dots out, put them in....LOL...I *think* I did ok with all of the challenges this morning - I really enjoy the final card....hope you do too!

Voila! There she be....

Stamps: Circle Circus, Well Scripted; Paper: Basic Black, Real Red, Pink Passion, Whisper White, Night and Day DP; Ink: Pixie Pink, Yo-Yo Yellow, Basic Black, Real Red; Accessories: Real Red satin ribbon, button, hemp twine, sponge dauber, pearls, nesties

Alright...well, I decided to give the kids the rest of the day off of school today - Tamie's kids are home today from a Professional Development Day, so we're gonna head up there and have a visit and some supper! Yay!! The kids are so pumped! :o) I will be back later on tonight - I have a special birthday card I need to make for a customer, so until then, happy craftin'!! :)

  5. Awesome way to incorporate all three challenges. Nice way to feature that stamp set - I may have to CASE this card since I think I have only used that set once!!
