Merry Mojo

Sorry I’ve been MIA. My husband and I took a car trip at the beginning of the week (more on that in another post) and I’ve had a hard time getting back in the swing of things.

I did find some time to do a couple of challenges. I combined Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge and Mojo Monday #310 ( hence the name of this post LOL)

The inspiration for Merry Monday was this picture

I also used the sketch from Mojo Monday. Here is the sketch.

And now my card:

The front. I kind of stretched it with the wood grain part of the challenge. I’m counting the tree trunk.

Joyful Christmas

I have another Christmas card to show you. (You will probably be seeing a lot of Christmas cards for a while. I usually try to make mine all year long, but with my mojo gone I’m behind)

I used 2 challenges for the inspiration for this card.

The first challenge was from Always Playing with Paper’s Merry Monday Christmas Card Club # 73 the challenge was to make a Christmas card using “Red, green and Kraft on your card with a choice of ribbon, twine or burlap.

The second challenge was Mojo Monday’s sketch #309

Here is the sketch

Another card

Well I guess the mojo is starting to come back because I have another card done today.
Like I said I’m trying to play along with blog challenges and right now they are coming due about the same time. Will try to space them out better in the future LOL

This card is for Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C201) The challenge was to use buttons and bows.

So here is my card

And here is a picture with the stamped envelope

I usually try to stamp my envelopes and line them. ( unless I make them of course)

Everything I used was Stampin Up

Fall Card

Here is a fall card made for the Paper Players challenge. The challenge was called “Falling for You” create a fall-themed card. Unfortunately I missed the deadline by 5 minutes. Oh well, at least I got a card done!

Here is the inside. I didn’t stamp the sentiment yet, going to wait to see what I use the card for.

I also stamped the envelope and lined it.

Halloween card

I figured it was time to finally show some of the cards I make. Lol. No really I decided it was finally time to do some of the card challenges I follow.

This one is from Friday Mash Up. In this challenge they give you a choice between a sketch or a theme, or you can “mash them up” and use both together. I decided to just use the sketch.

I also have a card challenge I do with C3 (my Wednesday morning ladies group). It is the same format, sketch and/or theme.

So I’m doing the Friday Mash Up sketch and the C3 theme, which is make a Halloween card.

Here is the sketch I used:

All the supplies I used are from Stampin Up

Thanks Friday Mash Up! Great sketch.

Christmas card

Today I’m going to share one of my Christmas cards for this year. Every year I make my own cards. I make them through out the year so that I’m not crazy trying to get them done after Thanksgiving. I usually make 4 of the same cards and try to make 2 different designs a month. I’m behind this year, but that is another story LOL. Will hopefully catch up soon.
