Bright Mojo Birthday

I love the sketch over at the Mojo Monday site this week, so I decided to play along.

I ended up making a normal size 4″ x 6″ card just because I knew I wanted to mail this one out and that’s the size of envelopes I have. 

I thought this would be a good unisex card, and it was easy to make.

Enjoy your Thursday!  We’re almost to that three-day weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Birthday Elephant

One of my favorite stamp sets in this year’s catalog is the You’re Amazing set.  I wanted to play along with this weeks challenge over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, so I grabbed this set.  Here’s the sketch for this week:

And here’s my take on this sketch.  I flipped the sketch on its side and changed it up a bit, but tried to stay true to the sketch.

World Spectacular Balloon

Of all the new product suites in the catalog, I think the World Spectacular suite may be my favorite. 

I mixed things up a little bit by using some of the new Howlstooth & Scaringbone designer series paper from the Holiday mini catalog.  I love how this paper is great not only for Halloween projects, but for everything.  It’s such a versatile paper!
