Greetings! Happy Monday!!! Mondays are not so bad now that I have discovered Julee's Mojo Monday sketches. What fun! Have you tried them? If not, why not give them a try! This is my interpretation. Although the colors look a little 'off', they coordinate nicely in real life. This is a nice sketch! I think I may reach for it again and again. Maybe it was so easy because I didn't add a bazillion layers and dimensionals - notice there's not even any ribbon! HA! And I used my Stickles for the first time...woooHOO!!! I have collected about 10 bottles but forget that I have this stuff. I've been moving out of my rut (using the same stuff over and over) and started to play with some of these fun supplies. It's so much fun....I feel like a kid again!!!
I used a mat pad from K&Company. If you're going to make cards, these mat pads are plenty big enough and a lot more affordable - you can buy some of the coordinating accessories with the money you saved. tee hee. Anyway, I colored my medallion with markers, ink and a blending pen. I'm not such a hot colorer. Would probably had been nicer if I had paper pieced. Hmmmm. That's an idea for next time! How do you like that cute little squiggle in the corner? It's actually a Sizzix die that I used in my Cuttlebug. It's actually the only Sizzix die that I own. I bought it because I wanted a little flourish and could not find what I wanted from Cuttlebug or Spellbinders. It looks different than this in its original form. I cut it up and repositioned it. The recipe for this card is on my new Splitcoast Stampers Gallery.
What are you up to? I have been dying to announce that I am going to be leaving Wednesday for Close To My Heart's Leadership Conference in Long Beach, California! WoooHOOOOO!!!! I am about to die with excitement! Alan is going to hold down the fort and keep the kitties company. Now, I am a last-minute packer. Probably because I don't have enough clothes to pack and still have something to wear to work! I'll be doing laundry tomorrow night, then packing around midnight, I suppose. I can't WAIT!!!!! We will be getting the brand new Idea Book, new products, create and takes, leadership classes....boy, I sure can use those. I am a terrible leader. I would probably do better if I didn't spend so much time doing contests and blogging, right???? Oh well. I will get a fire lit under me this week, I am sure!
Check back for fun updates starting Wednesday night. Oh, I am SOOOO excited! WooHHOOOO!!!! I hope to see some of y'all there!
