Mojo Joy

Happy Monday!  My vacation has just flown by and today I'll be traveling back home to find myself up to my eyeballs in prep work for Verve Release Week!  We'll be releasing a whole bunch of new sets at our release party this Friday, October 29, from 9-11pm Eastern.  And to celebrate Verve style, our New Release Spotlight Blog Hops start today and each day through Friday the Divas are putting on a hop to share their creations with the new stamps with you!  So be sure to hop around and leave some comments for a chance to win Verve goodies!.  All the details and the official hop list for today can be found on the Verve Blog.

Since it's also Monday, I'm combining my peek at the new Joy Plain Jane with this week's Round or Square Mojo Monday 162 sketch.  I really wanted to make the round version of this sketch, too, but time just slipped away while I was laughing and eating and stamping and driving with Laurie this past week!  Hopefully I'll get a chance later this week to give the round version a go!

I started by stamping the Joy Plain Jane on ivory cardstock, then coloring the wreath "o" with Spica glitter pens.  This section is cut out with Blossom Nestabilities and I sponged some ink around it for an old world feel.  The paper is all from the gorgeous new Tinsel & Twig line by The Girl's Paperie and I added a fiskars punched border and some faux stitching and paper distressing to finish off the look.  The big bow is some luscious May Arts ribbon I picked up in Missoula and so is that fabulous little green gem I accented the wreath with.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check out the other fabulous previews the Divas are sharing today...
