TJ and Mojo

Another Mojo Monday entry....I had started kind of haphazardly on this card with half an idea, I knew I wanted a bunny and an egg with the number 4 on it.  I found this one in my collection ( Hook's Lines & Inkers) and cut out the Egg and scalloped background on my Cricut (Easter 2010), Colored the bunny with my Copics and was just sitting there looking at them when I decided a little inspiration from the WWW would be a good idea.  My goto place is the Mojo Monday site.  The sketch gave me the idea to maybe put some grass behind and to make it square.  Although the card does exactly follow the sketch, it's where I got my "Mojo" from so I am posting it.

The Yellow Gingham Paper is from Recollections, the Blue dotted swiss is from K & Co.  The green is just some scraps left over from St. Patty's Day cards, same with the purple and pink (Not from St Patty's but handy in the scrap pile!)  I got the grass on the card and positions the big egg and the bunny but something was missing.  I decided to put a few eggs in the grass.  This card is for my Grandson TJ, who turns 4 the day before Easter and we are having his party on Easter and having an Easter Egg hunt as part of the celebrations - hence the Easter theme.  After stamping them out on scraps (Studio G) I really liked the way they got smaller and added some depth to the card.  Got it all assembled and decided I needed something in the corner so I added the fluttering butterfly ( Inkadinkado) and decided I liked the way it turned out.  I hope he likes it but in reality he probably won't even look at it!  Maybe Mom will save it and he can look at it when he gets older.

I have also been busy with a little bit of sewing, here is my granddaughter in her little dress I made for her.  Couldn't get a good picture, she won't stay still long enough to get a good one!

Have a great Easter!

I haven't participated in a Mojo Monday, or blogged for quite awhile....not that I haven't been doing stuff, just been doing my own thing.  If I had more followers I guess I would feel obligated to post more but sometimes I think I just do this for my own ego!  It IS the first Monday of the month sooooo.............

My cousin's oldest is a St. Patty's Day baby (not a baby anymore!) so I used this weeks sketch to make her card.  These papers are scraps from the year before last and I don't remember who they are from except for the green and blue, which are both from Bazzil.  I used my Cricut to cut the scallop and and Spellbinders for the circle.  The ribbon is from Offray and the flower is from Recollections.  The 4 leaf clover is a McGill Punch and the little shamrocks fell of some green ribbon I got from JoAnn's.  The sentiment is from one of my new additions from Verve.  I also bought the banner dies and wanted to put "Birthday Blessings" on a banner here in the front but decided it would be too busy and left it for the inside.  Oh, and there are some liquid pearls on the scallop, and a little Vintage Photo distress ink as well.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look...Have a great week!
