A LITTLE MOJO ON A WEDNESDAY

Hi all!!! I actually got to do Julee's Mojo Monday sketch this week - whoohoo!! I was able to print it off before my computer went down so this is what I worked on with no Internet - I actually got way more done without the computer working - LOL! So, I decided to make another Valentine's Day card using Julee's fabulous sketch! I love her sketches, they always inspire me. I also used some of my favorite DP, Bella Rose, which I was thrilled to see made it into the new Catty!!! I had some more fun paper piecing again, I just love doing it, I find it relaxing (weird, I know, but hey, at least I am honest!) I also stamped the hearts in Pink Pirouette ink, then restamped them in Riding Hood Red, cut them out, and popped them up on dimensionals for a little depth! And, of course the big scalloped oval is my Bigz Die for my Big Shot - love that machine!!!! Now I have another Valentines Day card to add to my stash AND this card inspired me to create one similar to this for my upcoming workshop so I got two done at the same time!! A little more simple than this layout, but it turned out cute - I will share when the workshop is over since I know my hostess reads my blog and she wants to be surprised *wink*. So, off to do some laundry and scrap booking. I have some really cute pics of Bella that I want to scrapbook so I will have those to share really soon! Have a fabulous day and thanks so much for stopping by to see me! Toodles!
