MOJO Monday 144...a week late :)

I actually made this card last week as part of the MOJO Monday sketch challenge but haven't had time to blog about it.

This is the FIRST time I've ever in my entire life participated in a sketch challenge, and I give it two big red nail painted thumbs up.  What a fun way to look at my supplies and figure out how to make it work :)   I think I MIGHT be hooked....maybe...

So, here is this sketch...

And here is interpretation with my sweet hubby's birthday card that I made with my own two hands :) 

I used the new colors from SU which will be available July 1st.  I fell in love with these colors while they were in my hands, but as I used them, I realized that my fondness for their beauty was actually deeper than love...I think it may turn into obsession....and I'm ok with that :)  My picture really doesn't do these rich colors any just trust me...the yellow, the red, the blue etc etc.  GOR-GEOUS!

I used the four square stamp set which is retiring Wednesday night.  I must say, this set is actually a quiet jewel in my collection.  I ignored it over and over again only to discover it last month and realized...I kinda love her...only to find out she will be gone soon.  Oh well...I still love her.

If you would like to place a LAST CHANCE order, you need to do so by JUNE 30th.  Please go to my website at or email me at .

Happy Stampin!
