Mojo 119

Mojo Sketch 119

Last night I tried to squeek in to the challenge and I was TOO LATE!!!! :(

So this AM I got up, had the new sketch in my email and got right to work. I KNEW this Pure Innocence from MF would be perfect. I used "My Balloon" for my image. I then double stamped the balloon cut it out and used it as my accent piece in the sketch! The paper is from Daisy Bucket (this used to be my Mom's local LSS before they got too big and are strictly wholesale). Anyway, I then used some of the last of my pink pearls, some Pink gingham ribbon from MFT, some nesties and my trusty Wizard. That seems to be the only tool I can't break! LOL

TONS of dimensionals on this baby to give it the needed OOMPH!

Check out MOJO each and every Monday, it definately gives you some eye candy and brain food!!!

Have an AWESOME week.

It's back to work for me tomorrow so me and my stamps are gonna get some quality time!!! ;)

Here are some pic's from this Christmas. Our lil tree was a leaner we discovered AFTER I ran all over town on a Sunday to find a tree stand! I came home from work only to discover that our stand (lovingly called drunk Santa) was broken. Drunk Santa was a porcelain/ceramic type stand, it had Santa laying on his side taking a lil nap and a empty bottle of.... ???? .... egg nog??? laying beside him! LOL!!!! SO I found the stand Dave and Christopher put it up and what do you suppose??? YUP! I BIG OL SWAY in the trunk that couldn't be cut out by taking some off the bottom, it was about 2 ft up... so we went with it!

You will also notice that my son has gotten pretty wooly while at college, me being the GOOD mommy didn't complain (too much) and even bought him stuff for his hair in his prep for... **GAG** Dread Locks... Well, as you will see in the next photo's his hair is cut... HE decided that he didn't like it was too long and hurt his head! LOL **sigh of relief** :)

Here are the new present pics...

YES HE DID!!! Bubba asked for a Vaccuum this year along with an iron, ironing board, printer and XBox year subscription to Xbox live...3 outta 5 aint bad...he can always ask a neighbor to borrow their iron...

Miss Hailey Brooke FINALLY received the open heart necklace this year, it has diamonds on it and a fine silver chain, she also scored on a ring with diamonds and her birthstone :)


PS Dave got a Gift Card to Cabella's again this year... can you say $400.... FREE MONEY??? OH MAN!!! I could do some SERIOUS Damage to some stamp companies with THAT much to spend!!!!


OK, so not the best of light for this picture but when you live in the Great Northwest whatcha gonna do??? LOL
I took advantage of some sunshine (rare) that was shining right on my desk and used my keyboard for a prop... UGH!
ANYWAY, I hope I'm not too late but I did this card for MOJO118 a few days ago and thought AACK!!! It's SUNDAY, I NEEEEED to load this baby, it is my personal goal to do all the Mojo challenges and Color Throwdown challenges this year!!! **fingers crossed** LOL
I used some DP and a $1 stamp covered in Irridescent Ice and heat set. I used some MM brads and dimensionals to give this baby some OOMPH!
Not a lot of yakkin as I gotta post this baby to the MOJO blog...

Color Throwdown meets TSG& Mojo117

TSG (There She Goes) meets Color Throw Down Challenge blog... OK, so HOW MUCH FUN IS THIS???
I LOVE TSG and have been admiring Barbara's color throwdown cards each time it posts, so I decided to throw myself into this challenge, a New Years Resolution it is... tee hee lucky for me they are taking a break and coming back AFTER January, so I will have authorization to break that resolution for a couple weeks! LOL
OK, so enough blah blah blah, onto the Card... the Challenge comes from Color throwdown . The challenge was to use the following colors, Real Red, Kiwi Kiss, Always Artichoke and Cool Carribean. CC is before my SU days so I used some Bazzill that is close...
I used the TSG Mini set and stamped and cut out 3 of the scoops of heaven, each one was mounted with dimensionals, with the top scoop having 3 of them to keep it from falling off of the cone... the puffy part of the scoops was glittered up with clear glitter and my 2way glue pen. I used some wavy ribbon froma bulk buy and a MFT Button from the Spring collection.
I am SHOCKED at how much I like this color combo, I like ALL of the examples but I NEVER like MY cards!!!! LOL
Well, come on over and play as you too can enter a card AND have a chance at winning one of Jessica's SUPER COOL Stamp Sets like this baby that I used... :)

This ALSO meets the MOJO117 Sketch for this week...just 23 hours left in that baby! LOL

Be Safe and Be Inky!

MFT December Blog Hop -Guest DT


If you didnt arrive from Barbara's blog then you are truly missing out so head to Kim's blog and start the hop there.

One lucky Hopper will be receiving BLOG CANDY from MFT.... Where is it??? Who has it??? What is it??? The only way to find out is to hop to all the blogs and post a comment on each blog. It's kinda like buying a lottery ticket, the more tickets you buy the better your odds! **wink wink**

Now, I NEED to tell you about this here card of mine. I am using the BRAND NEW WTG set called Mister Right. It was the VIP limited amount set a few weeks ago. NOW you too can get your inky little hands on it. I like to paper piece WTG's but this time I just chose to color. I have some WILD N CRAZY papers but just didn't want to go "there" KWIM? I had another card created and just wasn't feelin this AM along comes MOJO115 sketch and I had my A-HA moment... Now THIS is perfect.... I used SU! Old Olive for my card base & DCWV Bella Cafe DP papers. I also used my largest scalloped circle nestie and my largest Scalloped oval nestie, yes I actually got them to CUT... LOL I used brads (wanna be's not baby braddies) on the main area of the card, boy did I use brads.... HOWEVER on the sentiment tag I used my little baby braddies and some brown polka dotted ribbon that I believe I got in a bulk buy from an SCS'er.

Anywho...I kept the colors pretty neutral but added some Spica glitter pen to the vaccuum and the glass of vino. I DID however make the laptop pop with a touch of MFT Pink... ;)

Now you can head over to the AWESOME HOT MAMA JESSIE

Make sure when you are all done a hoppin that you come hang out with us at the MFT Release party over at the SCS Forum... we always laugh and have fun... it really is OK to chat... it was my FIRST release party that I didn't hide in the shadows and I was welcomed in with LOTS of niceness... these gals are SUPER CARD DIVAS but the NICEST you will ever meet...
