Merry Christmas

          I am definitely not ready for Christmas, Halloween isn't even over and I am starting to see Christmas stuff everywhere. So for the Mojo Monday Challenge 211 this week I thought I would try to get into the Christmas spirit.  I am a little disappointed in in some of the "mistakes" on this card but I still love it! Try not to look to close.

         All right here is the list of supplies I used; Bo Bunny "Snowy Serenade Concerto" paper, Bazzill Basics "emerald city", "tiara", and a dark grey paper that I didn't have the name for.  I also used the Cricut Expressions Machine with the "Winter Wonderland" and "Lacy Labels" cartridges.  From Michael's I used "Merry Christmas" stamp with Versa Mark and garnet embossing powder and heat set it. Both of the ribbons are from "Celebrate it ribbon", a white ribbon which I used my copics to color black and then used "Smooch Spritz" white to add a little sparkle to it, and "Holiday Ribbon Bow". The button snow flakes are also from "Celebrate it", I used my copics (R39) to color them and used "Smooch Spritz" silver to add a little more sparkle. I also used my sewing machine with burgundy and green thread, this is where you are not supposed to look for my "mistakes". Since we are talking about Christmas, maybe Santa will be generous and bring me a new sewing machine (because mine is not working) with all the bells and whistles!  Oh, and by the way.....my schedule is working....so far.
Until next time,

Happy Halloween

I made this card using the Mojo Monday 210 challenge. 
I have Halloween on my mind, so I went with that theme. 

I have this lovely book of Halloween themed papers that I used, along with Basil papers, scissors, punches, string and versamark with black glitter embossing powder.  I cut out the spider and popped it out on the orange, I know its hard to see that detail.  I attached the orange string to the spider to make it look like the starting of a web and to follow the Mojo template without using a bow.
Now that back to school has passed and my family and I have adjusted back to a routine, I have invited family and friends to join me in my scrapbook studio in my basement on Tuesdays for some "scrap time".  My plan is to make a card for the Mojo challenge, maybe complete a page or two and update my blog by the end of the day. We'll see if I can keep that schedule.
Untill next time,
