Mojo Monday #86 - Reach for the Stars...

I'm really loving the Mojo Monday blog and their sketches... this is my third try at a sketch and I can't believe I just didn't take the time to play before!

Here is the Mojo Monday sketch for this week:
And here is my version:
I just love this little robot guy... He is so cute and such a breeze to colour in! I added some Diamond Stickles to the little "lights" on the robot to make them look like flashing lights.

Whoo loves you?

Happy Mother's Day!! It is a beautiful sunny day here in Southern Ontario and I can't wait to get outside with my two little guys and go "hang out" at the park - we'll make sure to wear our spring coats, since it is a little chilly though LOL!

Here is a card I made for the grandkids to give to my mom for Mother's Day... I used Jeanette Lynton's Colour-me-Monday colour combination again (I just love this colour combo)... believe it or not, the owl is the same colour as the "pink" paper square under the owl mat - the colour doesn't come out the same in the picture though :) I usually don't add my own handwriting on my cards - but I don't have a stamp with this sentiment and I was just to lazy to get my little alphabet stamps out to stamp it, so I used my journaling markers to add the "whoo loves you?" to the front of the card and a big "we do!" on the inside.

Supply list:

Cardstock - CTMH, Desert Sand, Heavenly Blue, Sorbet, Garden Green and Colonial White

Inks - CTMH, Desert Sand, Sorbet, Heavenly Blue

Stamps - CTMH, Journaling Dots, You're A Hoot, Argyle Backgrounds

Other - SU punch, CTMH brads, Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots embossing folder

Mojo Monday Sketch using Jeanette Lynton's Monday CTMH Colour Combo

I've been MIA the last couple weeks - there has been a lot of catching-up to do since the awesome scrapbook retreat, but I'm finally back in the groove and ready to start creating again!

Here is a Mother's Day card I put together using the Mojo Monday Sketch #85 and the beautiful colour combo posted by Jeanette Lynton this week - if you haven't checked out Jeanette's blog (which is awesome by the way), she is going to start posting a new colour combo every Monday - how great is that?

Here is the sketch:

Here is my version of the sketch:

I have a thing for polka dots and this card shows it LOL! I cut out the smaller flowers and the flourish with my wishblade. I hope you like it!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!
