Mojo Sunday Time for Me ...

A week is not quite complete for me unless I am able to somehow squeeze in a little PT (personal time). While it may sound a bit selfish, I assure you it's not. I am usually thinking ahead to what cards I am going to need in the very near future, so I need my PT to create those LOVE-LY cards.  This week I was in need of a cute card for a very special girl who is turning 17 next week. I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this week as inspiration. Here is their sketch:
Here is my creation using this sketch:
I simply turned the sketch 90 degrees. Since I was thinking birthday theme ahead of time, it made sense to me to use balloons down the side. To create this card I used my stash of Close to my Heart products.
Card Ingredients: Clementine Paper Packet, Saddle Ink, Twilight Ink, Sorbet Cardstock (came in my paper packet. I used both of my CTMH Cricut Cartridges (Artiste and Art Philosophy) to cut out the balloons, the banners, the flower/leaves, and the scalloped circle.  I had a lot of fun using some of the coordinating stamps that came with my new Artiste Cartridge (the balloons and the banners). I love that I can stamp the images any color. Makes the creative possibilities endless. I also plugged in my Cricut to my computer to hook up to Cricut Craft Room. This enabled me to cut another balloon without the little sliver cut out of it (the brown ones I put behind my stamped images). Any other questions, feel free to leave me a comment and I'll be sure to answer as quick as possible.
Can you see the cute little banner stamp and the balloon stamp that I used from this amazing Cricut Collection? Loved getting a chance to play with my paper and scissors today. Hope I can get to more very soon, but for now, time to go help Mr. Wonderful cook up some dinner.

Mojo Monday September 7, 2012

This week I was in need of a few sympathy cards.  I was thankful for the new stamp set from Close to my Heart called Words of Comfort  and the Mojo Monday card sketch 257 to help me make these cards convey our heartfelt sympathy for our friends.

Here is the card I created using the sketch shown above:
