Mojo Monday 194 Contest

I love this site and have found many cute ideas just by stalking it! Well, today I decided to try out the most recent sketch and found out that I love it!! I did use a retired SU DSP set but I'm so in love with this paper pack that I'm rapidly using up the four sets that I bought {before I use them for what I really wanted them for!! Scrapbooking my Vegas trip!! LOL}!! Anyway, this card uses the Jackpot DSP, Real Red, Basic Black and So Saffron cardstock, Game Night stamp set, and black ribbon from my stock. I absolutely love how it turned out!!! Kind of makes me want to put a game night together and send out invites!!!

I love this website! Sqworl is an online bookmarking website similar to Diigo or Delicious in that you can bookmark your favorite websites and access them anywhere you have internet access but Sqworl shows you a little preview of the site thus allowing you to see what you are getting yourself into! I've started a HUGE list of crafty sites that I like checking out. You can see them here: Crafty Sites.

Card Crazy! ~ Part 2

I promised to add pictures of the cards I created at the all day crop and here they are, finally. Sorry about the dark pictures, I'm still working on getting some decent lighting for my pictures. Also, a few of my cards are part of a kit. Here is a link to the instructions: One Sheet Wonder Personalized Cards.

Card Crazy!

Yesterday I attended an all-day crop to raise funds for Fanconi Anemia (go here for more information: I was there from 9 a.m. to about 5:30 p.m. and had an amazing time. I went absolutely crazy making cards (I'll post some of them later) and overall had a nice time.

There was a family in attendance who had not one but two children afflicted by FA and when they shared their story, I was in tears. It made me realize that we were there for them and not to just 'crop 'til we drop'.

Happy Birthday Jill!

New Year's Eve doesn't just signal the end of a year for me. It is also the birthday of a dear friend, Jill. Last night was the first NYE we didn't spend together in many, many years so we weren't able to celebrate her birthday either. Later today I'm going to stop by and wish her a very happy birthday in person but I thought I'd share the card that I made her first!

On the front of the card I used papers from the new CTMH Wings L2 paper pack. I used a stamp from the Hero Arts Beautiful Peacocks set. Love it! I colored in a little of the peacock using Copic's Spica Glitter Pen in Turquoise. I also added a tiny sparkle from CTMH on the eye as well. The inside sentiment is from the Hero Arts Beautiful Peacocks set too. I'm really pleased with how this card turned out!
