Oh…Mojo, how I’ve missed you!


My mojo’s been missing for weeks now…the current sketch has found it for me..Thanks Mojo Monday! I love SU “Just Add Cake” or as I have renamed in my head..”Cakewalk”. I’m fighting the transition of cooler weather ( even though I love fall) and these bright, fun colors remind me of the summer we never had!!!My HE ( husband equivalent) said it looked busy, but what does he know? Notice I don’t refer to him as my DH (unless it stands for dumb husband!) We kid each other all the time…he’s got some names for me as well.

Those adorable pinwheels are the easiest things to make and the little bow on the cake tag is snipped from SU’s Triple Flower punch. Thanks for taking the time to read and I appreciate any comments.


saying goodbye to summer……..


I had to make one more “summer” card before I switch out summer to fall stuff. I’ll work on my closets later! The Freshly made sketch challenge helped this “clean” card come to life.

Can you get any ‘cleaner ‘ than a white card? I started with a white card, a strip of Stampin Up’ Spice cake DSP (love that Pool Party!) and my flower border is simply the flower from the triple layer punch snipped in half. I stamped off the Flower Fest images in Calypso Coral and Pool Party, and stamped and cut out the flower accents. I know the ” Thank You’ looks like an afterthought…but I was really pressed for time and that’s all I could come up with. I wanted to be outside and enjoy one of the last nice days of summer.


UGH! I need to take a photography class…any SIMPLE suggestions as to how to take better pictures?


Freshly Made


Finally!! A sketch challenge that’s right up my alley! Clean! The girls at Freshly Made Sketches are my new friends!! This week’s sketch:

and my take on tthe sketch

The fun card came together so fast using SU “Just Add Cake” DSP, I have my own name for this collection, I call it “Cakewalk”! I love the bold,bright fun colors and the crazy prints. I’m loving pinwheels right now, they are super easy to make and I’ve got quite a collection going. This is my first challenge with FMS and I hope to play along next week!
