I need about 27 hours a day.

When I started this blog I promised myself I would post at least once a week by doing the mojo sketch, and I knew that if I was going to keep up with the once a week promise I'd have to be on top of the mojo sketch at the beginning of the week. This week, I procrastinated. I almost decided to just forget about it. Thank goodness I also have a strong guilt reflex and I felt guilty about not keeping up with my own self inflicted promise. So yesterday even though I felt like not doing anything other than staring at the grass growing (and yes we just put down a load of seed and laid new sod so I can in fact watch new grass grow if I felt like it) I dragged myself to the basement to make my card.
I'm fairly happy with it. I could not for the life of me get the ink that I chose to use to give me decent coverage on the stamps that I chose to use, but meh whatever. It gives it the antique look (ha, that's what I'm telling myself anyway.
I tried something different with my picture takign since the lighting in my house is horrible. Someday I will take a better picture (how's that for procrastination)
Stamps: Just Like You (SU)
Ink: Cranberry (Colourbox)
Paper: Play (Fancy Pants Designs); Indigo (Canson); some random cheap yellow paper from michaels

Its my Mom's birthday today so I thought I'd make her a birthday card even though I already have a million other birthday cards lying around. I figured I'd try something different with my paper selections. I like things to be very matchy matchy. So even though this card ended up being pretty matchyin terms of colours, I went outside of my comfort zone in terms of matching patterns. Everything is different.
STAMPS: Wagon Full of Fun (SU), Birthday Wish (SU). INK: Warm Red (Colourbox) PAPER: Maddi Norr Stipe, Maddi Pasley (Making Memories); Petite Sunrise Posies (DCWV)
