MOJO 109

Wow, what a week. My son went in for surgery, daughter was ill and the school was missing 35% of their students! The flu season is here and  many are wondering if they will get the H1N1 flu shot. I too was wondering if I should or not. Then a good friend got the H1N1 and I immediately decided to get it.The poor guy was deathly ill, ached all over, ran a fever for four days was in extreme pain and discomfort. It took over a week to finally feel "somewhat" better.
Nonetheless....I managed to make a card for the Mojo Monday Challenge.

I used the same stamp set as I did in Mojo 108. I love this set. It is sooooooo adorable! I colored it with Tombow markers. The snowmen were colored with Smooch moonlight ink. These are my favorite toys right now. I can't seem to get enough of them! I used my versamark pen to cover over them then used the paint. A trick I learned from Scrap & Stamp magazine.  I cuttled the background and "popped" the picture and sentiment. Thanks for looking!

MOJO 108

Only in Alberta would we have weather in the +'s and wake up the next morning and were at -20! What the heck! Today I did the Mojo Monday Challenge (although it is well past Monday!) I love this stamp set by Impression Obsession.

I used CTMH and SU cardstock along with some misc dp I had laying around.  The hat and scarf were colored using Smooch Pearlized Accent Inks.  I used Crystal Snow ultra fine glitter (Stampendous) on the snowbank and snow white flock on the snowballs. Thanks for looking!

 I "popped" out the snowmen and used stickles to add some shine!

MOJO 107

When I woke up this morning I was hoping, just hoping the weatherman would for once {lol:)} be wrong in his weather forecast. He wasn't. It was cold and I had to turn on the heat! This afternoon there was a e blizzard and I thought of my daughter driving. (she's a new driver) 10 minutes later the sun was shining! Only in Alberta.

Here is my take on MOJO107. This is my first attempt at the challenges and I hope to partake in a few. You will find her blog at

I used Chocolate Chip cardstock and Groovy Guava dp. The stamp is from Stampin Up. I stamped it on dp, cut out the flowers and glued them on with mini glue dots. I then used Crystal Effects on the flowers to give them some shine. I used Gina K's idea with the scallop nestability and sponged it with Groovy Guava ink prior to taking off the die, giving it layered effect. Unfortunately, I forgot to attach the brads BEFORE I glued it to the cardstock so I punched some out using a hole punch and crystal effects. I know, I know... I am a little off on keeping them straight! But I tried. Thanks for looking!

Punches, punches, punches!

Here is a card I CASED over at for the Star of the Week Challenge. Thanks to Donnalee, (whose card I CASED) I had so much fun digging out my punches and creating cards. I made up a few but this was my favorite.
I used miscellaneous paper and cuttled it with the argyle folder. The dress and purse were made using the following punches from Stampin Up: heart, word window, round tab, large and small oval. I cut out rectangles for the skirt of the dress as well as the flower, embellished with mini pearls. Thanks for looking!

Some more pages I did at my scrapbook club, two of my favorite pages.

Oh by the daughter's gel nails are off!
