Mojo Monday Sketch 123

Do I have a card for this week's Mojo Monday sketch??  Yes!!  and it is actually Monday!    This month I was the hostess for our Stamper's 10 group.  Went a little overboard with great results.  Love that free schtuff!  Vintage Vogue is my favourite set this month, along with the new border punch (those will soon change).

So here goes!

This week we had the choice to make a round card or a square here is my creation. 

Remember, take time to stamp up a storm and ink up a wish.

Mojo Monday - Sketch 120

Happy New Year everyone!
I haven't added anything to my blog for so long - almost forgot about it.  The first Monday of the month and here is my "take" on the Mojo Monday sketch.  It's also a contest week and the lucky winner(s) receive their choice of a wonderful "Verve" set.  

For this sketch, I dragged out an old Stampendous stamp that fit the season, stamped and coloured the image with copics, circle cut around the image leaving the heads popping out of the circle to give the "3-D" image, smooshed some white craft ink over the embossed image and popped some ribbon and beads on -- "voila"!

In August I got an all-in-1 printer, laptop & sound system for my birthday........I have been procrastinating setting the printer up because I don't deal with "new" very well.  It hasn't been a pleasant experience getting familiar with the mechanics of the A-I-1. Thus the reason behind my not adding to my blog.  
"Santa" dropped a few surprising items into my stocking - and the jolly old soul did very well choosing -  A Cornish Farms fisherman stamp; glitter; a Hero Arts set of stamps; an acrylic poppy stamp;  Tim Holtz mini misters; some copic sketch pens;.............and lots of trinkets  (all stamp related!!) 

My goal for 2010 is to purge, paint and put hardwood in my "craft room".  The major work will have to be done in warmer weather when I can get my room moved to the garage.  If anyone is wanting "scrapbooking magazines"  please let me know!  I haven't a clue what to do with them and would rather not throw them out..........  all that good shiney paper must be good for something. Somewhere it must be written that throwing out Stamping and Scrapbooking magazines is sacreligious. 
Until next week.  "Stamp up a storm and Ink up a wish!
