Mojo Monday


Good Monday morning, all you mojo fans! Julee has another fabulous Mojo Monday sketch lined up and I loved using it to play with some new Verve goodies from the recent release! Don't you just love that new font combination?!  I found this new 6x6 "Holly Day Wishes" paper pad by Recollections as I was browsing through Michael's the other day...LOVE the country colors!  I used a kraft base and stamped the poinsettias/leaves on kraft using Riding Hood Red and Gumball Green.  I popped the flowers with foam dots.  A little confession here...see those little flag tabs on the side?  I had the card totally assembled when I decided it needed some stitching on the ends of the red panel.  Well...my needle broke as I was sewing and it "chewed a hole" in my paper! Grrrr!  So, I had to come up with a clever disguise...aka little tabs to embellish! :-)  To balance it out, I added one on the opposite side as well.  Here's hoping you'll play along with us this week.  For more inspiration by the other mojomakers, head on over to the Mojo Monday blog!

STAMPS: Joyous Noel by Verve
INK: Chocolate Chip
ACCESSORIES: Rusty jingle bells, Jute twine, Wonky Rectangle Nesties, Flag die by Lil Inker Designs, Brads.

Love how you layered the poinsettia and the bells and twine are a fabulous touch. Well done on the "cover up". The tabs look fabulous! Have a great week!

Wonderful, Wanda! Love the mix of papers and the rusty jingle bells! The tabs are a great addition - don't you hate it when your sewing machine eats your card?!
