Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

I used my Heartfelt Creations stamp set , which I just love.  This was the fastest card I've EVER made, it to only 15 minutes. The hardest part, was placing the pearls.

Have a fabulous day, and will blog with you later.

I Can Do All Things

Hello My Fellow Crafters,
I'm still trying to re-organized after my vacay. I have unpacking. There's so much laundry to be done, not just from my vacation, but my hubby's laundry as well. There's also a lot of cleaning that I need to finish. I've been breaking everything done to small task, so I won't feel so overwhelmed.  I'm also watching the Casey Anthony's trial online. I was watching it with my MIL, now I'm totally hocked. I know, that is so sad. I can't help it, I'm addicted to this case.

Well yesterday, I started a scrapbook page that I have finally finished. I was trying out some new things, and a took my a lot longer to finish it.  Most of my pages are, to bland, I wanted to spice thing up a bit. I know this still isn't as spicy as I can go, but I'm taking baby steps. There are no designer papers, or patterns on this page.  I did use a lot of stamps, I even made the flower in the lower right hand corner, actually I made 5 of them. I didn't all them all, because the paper was beginning to look a little too busy. All in all, I do like the way this page turned out.

Well that's all for now, I have to get back to the trial, and do some more cleaning. Have a fabulous day.

MoJo Monday - A Masculine "Thinking of You" Card

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

Well I'm back from my vacation. My son and I have a great visit with my MIL. She really enjoyed having us there, and we enjoyed the visit. But I must admit, I missed my hubby, my blog, and my Internet. Being without the Internet for 2 weeks was a little of a culture shock. I hadn't realized how addicted I am the net until I had to go without it. But I survived. I love going on vacation, but there's no place like home.

Well time to get back to crafting. Today I created a card using the  MoJo Monday Sketch 196.

I've really been struggling to make masculine cards, so today, I used this weeks MoJo Monday sketch to make a masculine card. I actually like the way it turned out.  I used my hubby's favorite color, trimmed with black, and threw in a splash of red.

Well, that's it for now. I have a lot of unpacking, washing, and cleaning to do.

Have a wonderful day,

MoJo Monday and a Father's Day Card

Hi Everyone,
Today I needed to create a card for my daddy (I'm a daddy's girl, big time) for Father's Day.  I have the hardest time trying to make masculine cards. All of my papers and embellies are floral and girlie. I was really happy that I remember that I had bought this paper, some years back, just for this purpose.  I used the Mojo Monday 193 sketch for this card as well. I love sketches, they come in handy when my mojo is MIA.  You can see the sketch on my previous post.

This card is 6 x 6, I like making large cards for my daddy. I paper piece the laptop, and colored with Copic markers. The frames on the wall were also paper pieced and I cut out some pics of me and my son to add to them. I think daddy will like that.

I'm sure you're thinking that I'm getting a head start on my Father's Day cards. Well, that's really not the case. My son and I will be spending two weeks in Daytona Beach Florida with my MIL, and returning Father's Day weekend. I will be away from all of my toys. No stamping, card making or scrapbooking for two weeks, that will be hard (what will I do? what will I do?). But I will try to ease the pain by spending some time in the sun and on the beach. I feel the pain lessening as I think about it, lol. Well that's all I have for today.
