Some 11th-hour Mojo

Mojo Monday 494-1


I think I’m in under the wire for Mojo Monday 494.

I loved this sketch and knew immediately what product I wanted to use and what I wanted to create with it.  I love this DSP! It’s vintage, sweet, soft, and has lovely colors.  (I’m particularly fond of the “blue-side” of this double-sided paper, but wanted to give the opposite side of the color wheel a workout, too.)  And who doesn’t love a carousel?  There’s something about this paper that can be either softly romantic or evoke fond memories of childhood–all with the same image. And since I’ve got quite a few friends right now that I want to send a personal “hi-I’m-thinking-of-you” card to because their lives could use a bit of sunshine–this card seems made-to-order.

A note of serenity

Dijon Just A Note2

Day 2 of my Serene Scenery card group, inspired by a tutorial by Patty Bennett here.  I’ve got a tad of stamping on this one, but the use of a punch made this easy-peasy.
