Mojo Monday Again

I've been taking a break from crafting for awhile; there were 4 CD's of photos taken at our son's wedding--2 1/2 years ago--that needed to be "curated."  (It's a photographic experience I wouldn't want to go through again, and I wasn't the photographer, but I paid for it.)  Anyway, that's taken care of, and Mojo Monday is a good place to resume.

I chose square because I always choose that shape over a circle.  And because I had a new paper pad, I was inspired to use the unusual patterns.  "Dimensions" is the SU paper pad; "Believe" is a new Penny Black die, and the butterfly is PinkPaislee's Artisan Cardboard.

Tuesday Cards

Every so often, I think of a card and execute the plan quickly...that was the case with this week's Tuesday cards.  I was tensely watching Jordan Spieth have a meltdown in the final holes of the Masters golf tournament, and I just didn't want to see anymore.  I had already "found" the beautiful washi paper last week, which is where I wanted to start.  Choosing an Asian-themed stamp seemed logical, too, and because I wanted the washi layer to show, I chose "Fuji Goddess" by Lynne Perrella for Stampington, one of several of Perella's images in my collection.  The Penny Black sentiment is new to my collection.

Freshly Made This Week

Designer paper ... a new Unity image of peonies in a vase, colored with SU markers, "happy" die from Simon Says Stamp. (That skinny little tail at the bottom of the piece of DP was adhered after the photo.)   Joining in the fun at Freshly Made Sketches.

Mojo Monday for Tuesday Cards

I actually completed the Mojo Monday sketch challenge on Tuesday...earlier than most of my efforts!

The sketch was my choice for my Tuesday Cards -- two cards I send every Tuesday to two friends. 
(To be honest, these cards were my third--yes, third--attempt.  Nothing seemed to work.)  The cards feature Prima's "Royal Menagerie" 6x6 paper pad, which is absolutely beautiful.  The sentiment is from Penny Black.

Freshly Made "Hello"

This is a nice, simple sketch for Freshly Made Sketches this week.  At first, I considered red burlap, but then decided it wouldn't work as I wanted.  So, this is the result:  red and kraft and that pretty Penny Black "hello" die and some shiny red pearls. 

Mojo Monday on Thursday

It's still taking me almost a week to make my MOJO MONDAY card.  Today, I've used Prima designer paper from the "Royal Menagerie" paper pad.  The flower is from Darjeeling and the sentiment is a Serendipity stamp.

Tuesday Mailing

I decided that I liked the card in my previous post so much that I would use the layout for my Tuesday cards. I just chose a less dramatic cardstock and designer paper.  Same Memory Box "Tilth Floral" die with Prima's "Nature Garden" paper pad.  The base card is SU's Smoky Slate and the blue is an unnamed piece from a craft store. The heart brads are Prima's "Delight," and the sentiment is from Penny Black.
