Mojo Monday #436 – You’re So Sweet!

Welcome back to another Mojo Monday challenge! Today I made a card for the Mojo Monday #436 challenge. I’m a little late as the Linky closes in about an hour, but hey, sometimes I do my best work procrastinating. Also I heard recently, if you’re not procrastinating, you’re wasting time. šŸ˜‰ I really love that.

Here is the cute and fun sketch over at Mojo:

I just love the circles and banner elements! It was a fun and simple card to run with. I made a You’re So Sweet card using the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. You can still get this stamp set FREE with a $50 purchase before tax and shipping!

Can I just say I LOVE the It’s My Party enamel dots??? These cuties come in 3 great colors, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo.Ā  They look so sweet, like little candies on my card!

I love that all of Stampin’ Up’s products coordinate so well! I had no problem matching the card stock to the embellishments to the ink! There are some really cute honeycomb embellishments in the Occasions catalog too. I didn’t use them this time around but they are adorable!

Just a little update on our move…we have 5 days to go. OMG! Today I packed up about 4 boxes of TOYS…and they have maybe 1 more. That’s way too many toys if you ask me. I see a donation run or a garage sale in our future! So we will be traveling about 1300 miles in a motorhome with 2 toddlers. I am NOT ready lol. Well, sort of. I have pinned several “traveling with toddlers” articles and ideas. I’m preparing some things that I hope will make it a smooth trip for everyone. I hope to write about our experience and what worked and didn’t work after we get there! I’ll connect a link to that post after I write it. Our family threw us a little going away party at my sister’s last night and that was really nice. (Except for a few dysfunctional family moments I won’t get into…) A little bittersweet, but we are excited to go!

Thanks for stopping by!

Can You Case It Challenge #106

Here’s a card for the challenge over at Can You Case It? This is my first time playing along with this challenge!

First, here is the sketch!

I squeaked by for this challenge…literally posting my card about 5 minutes until Noon! I also made this card in 30 minutes with 2 toddlers trampling all over my workspace/self/craft room. It was hilarious…but I really wanted to participate in this challenge! (The things we’ll do in the name of crafting….)

For this card I used the beautiful Botanical Gardens Design Paper. Such bold and striking colors! This features Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze and Hello Honey to name a few.

I used the Flower Patch stamp set and the matching framelits, Flower Fair. These flowers are cheery and fun! This is a great bundle to get…remember if you get the photopolymer stamps and the framelits you save 15%! (see below)

Hope you enjoyed my card, here’s what I used to make it:
