Time For a Little Mojo Madness

Hi everyone! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! The new computer I ordered finally arrived on Saturday and hubby spent most of the weekend installing all the software, running updates, setting up all my email accounts, etc. What a great thing it is to have a computer geek for a hubby! He isn't much help when the garbage disposal breaks or the car starts acting funny, but man, he's a whiz on a computer!

Anyhow, it's the first Monday of the month, so that means it's contest time over at Mojo Monday! Check out the blog for this week's sketch and your chance to win some free Verve stamps!

I made a fun, springy card with a few Verve sets. The butterfly is from Fluttering By and is stamped in chocolate chip craft ink and embossed in clear on Kraft, some pink Bittersweet BasicGrey paper, and vellum cardstock. I then cut the pink and vellum wings out and layered them with dimensionals to give it a little extra flutter. I was feeling pretty girly, so I decorated with all sorts of pink bling from Kaiser craft. The second Kraft layer is stamped and embossed with some of the greenery from Abundant Blessings, and I sponged with Close to Cocoa then Chocolate Chip ink. The sentiment is from the Feeling Groovy set and decked out on some SU! circle punches with some more bling. I used that addicting Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch again and finished off with some pink taffeta and some frosty pink primas with a rhinestone brad.

I was really in an embellishing mood, so I even added a little embellishment to the inside of the card. The sentiment is from the Fancy Florals set and I used leftover scraps, another prima and added a little button center. I finished off with some sparkly Stardust glitter.

Okay, that's the skinny on this mojo-riffic creation to jumpstart your week. I hope you'll find some creative time to play along this week. Be sure to check out the Mojo Monday blog for the sketch, and all the fabulous samples from the Mojo Makers!
