MOJO Monday 458

I’m sure it’s a little bit of a stretch but this is my MOJO Monday inspired card for this week. The airplane comes from the B is for Boy Cricut Cartridge. I have 5 little boy peoples in my life and one has a birthday coming up so I wanted to create a special card. The EAA Oshkosh Fly-In is also going on, so we get a little more inspiration this week with a few extra planes going over.

I’ve been having so much fun with my Silhouette, that my Cricut Mini was getting a little lonesome. In addition to the little airplane decided to use clouds from the Create a Critter Cartridge for a little background. Blue dot adhesive ribbon was used  for the small corner banners. I’ve been using a bit of  foam tape lately to give some dimension to the cards and really like using it.

That’s it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.

Mojo Monday 457: Anniversary Card

Good evening! Hope you had a terrific weekend. I had a wonderful Saturday out at a local park for our city’s 175th anniversary where I demonstrated basket weaving and sold a quite a few of my handwoven baskets. It was an amazing day but was I ever tired out yesterday. After church and lunch it was definitely nap time.

I bounced back pretty well though. Today was a busy day of catching up on housework and errands, but I still managed to sneak in a Mojo Monday Card and for once I did it ON Monday. While it’s a very simple card, it’s one that is heart felt. My Dad and step mother are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary next weekend and family from several states are all going to be there to help them celebrate. It’s something we haven’t done for quite a long time.

For my card I chose stamps from the “Wishing You” set by Verve and a little flower from Close To My Heart Petite Perks Kaleidoscope Blooms. CTMH Slate, Smoothie and Honey inks were used. I layered some Cricut card stock and a piece of patterned paper for my background. The butterfly and leaves are cuts from the Silhouette Store.

That’s it. Hope you have a great rest of the week!

Mojo Monday 456: A Flower for You

MOJO Monday 456

MOJO456 Big Red Flower

There’s no question it’s July in Wisconsin. We had to do a little watering outside this morning, but it looks as though there is some rain in the forecast. Maybe the flowers will get a little more watering later.

I decided to bring flowers inside today with this Mojo Monday Card. I had this little piece of patterned paper that coordinated nicely with some new card stock that I just received yesterday. I cut out scalloped circles of different sizes on my Silhouette Cameo and added some leaves to make a big red flower. I stamped my sentiment in CTMH Pear ink. The stamp is from Cardz TV “Mixed Messages” set.

That’s it for today. Have a wonderful rest of the week.
