MojoTime and some birthday cards










Wow this has really been a busy card making week it has been hard to fit in some of my favorite challenges. I did manage to get my Mojo on today their sketches are always so fun to do. I did a square card it seemed to fit the sketch best I was tempted to add another element to the top square but I restrained myself. I seem to think every inch needs to be embellished even though I love simple designed cards I keep adding on.




I also had a few birthday cards I needed to make and to add to my stash. I have been really getting into pop up cards so decided to try a little different style. I also wanted to try a technique on my other card that i had seen I think on the cuttlebug challenge blog. It involves embossing your paper with a cuttlebug folder and then turning it over to the negative side where you have the grooves. I then took my glue pen and filled in all the hollow parts next I sprinkled my glitter into them pressed down a little a Voila! a beautiful glittered embossed image

Those are GORGEOUS!! Love that butterfly card. I just wanted to say hi! I am in Las Vegas visiting my parents and decided to surf the net instead of losing my money gambling! LOL!

This is beautiful! I love the butterfly.
I know what you mean about Michael on GH. It's too bad Carly and Claudia don't get along because I think that Claudia would be a good one to "knock some sense into him!" (Of course, the fact she's responsible for shooting him, will negate that from happening!) Still, would have made for a great scene.
