Mojo Monday

Well, this is the card for the week courtesy of Mojo Monday. I can honestly say that this one was a tricky one. It even kept me up at night thinking about how I was going to lay everything out or the paper that I was going to use. Finally, I just told myself pick your favorite piece of paper and go with it. I can say that I am happy with how it turned out.

I used the same Crate Paper pack as I did last week. (I would have to say that it is one of my more favorite paper packs now. The card base is from a source unkown. The stamps, ribbon, ink and brads are all from Close to My Heart.

I won't be doing any Mojo Monday for next week. I am off on holidays to go visit my sister. It will be the first time I am taking my hubby out to where I grew up. We have only been together for 4 years. (I guess better late, than never.)

Don't forget to leave your comments on my blog, both good and bad.

My first blog post

This is my first blog post!!! Yay, for me!!! I have joined the blogging revolution.
I am hoping to bring videos and pictures of cardmaking, scrapbooking and anything crafty to my blog. I am open to opinions and would love feedback.
This is the card I made for Mojo Monday. It is a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card. The card base is kraft cardstock from Stampin' Up. All of the other paper is from Crate Paper. The brads and ribbon (yes it is there, it just got covered up by all the paper.) is from Close to my heart. The sentiment and flower are the die cuts that are offered in the Crate paper pack. I also added a hemp bow to the flower. (I got this from Walmart, not sure who makes it.)
Let me know what you think! Both positive and negative! Have an awesome week!!!
