Mojo Monday #266

Welcome!!!  Have you ever woken up (grammar police, I will voluntarily turn myself in later) in the morning expecting to feel pretty blah, but then you don't?  Anyone with me here?  Well, I am in the best kind of crazy, happy mood!  Probably a bit because I am anticipating someone receiving a little something that I made them for a very special day!  ;) 

I ALSO made this same person a card with the sketch for this week's Mojo Monday!!!  Here it is--my entry for Mojo Monday #266...

I am so in love with this paper right now, but alas, it is a retired pack from CTMH.  Sigh.  The color combination is just beautiful though, and I added some solid Twilight Cardstock. I used my Art Philosophy Cartridge from Close to My Heart to cut the scallop and the circles.  The card is a standard size A2.

I used the sentiment "Hello friend" that I received as my prize for being a winner in Mojo Monday 257 a little while back.  It is in the Verve stamp set Hope Blooms.  I also used a snowflake theme Cuttlebug folder to emboss this background banner.  My Gelly Roll Clear Star pen added sparkle to all the raised parts of the paper after I sanded it.  LOVE.  I hope you can see it...

I also used my absolute favorite product that I carry for Close to My Heart called Shimmer Trim.  It is basically glitter on a roll with an adhesive back. I love the texture of it!

 This adorable snowflake is cut out with the Art Philosophy Cartridge as well.  I actually like the little bits of fuzzy paper left behind in the little tiny cuts.  It makes the flake look fluffy!  ;)

I FINALLY remembered to add some interest to the inside of my card as well!  Quite proud of that, lol.  I used Close to My Heart My Acrylix D1187 For All Occasions for the Happy Birthday sentiment inside.  I have cut apart several stamps lately, but not this time.  I just inked up one word at a time to stamp them on separate lines. 

Thanks for stopping in, and if you see Carisa, tell her not to read my blog until at least Saturday!  ;)


  1. Beautiful! LOL...I don't know Carissa but I will let her know not to read your post if I meed her :) I posted too early once and the recipient saw because my blog post auto-posted to Facebook. Oops! ;)

    1. Oh thank you...I warned her to stay off my blog but you know how well some people listen! ;)

  2. So glad I found your blog. I went through page after page and copied several of your ideas into my CASE file. Thanks for sharing your talent!!

    1. Oh goodness! I am a tad speechless you are so sweet! I am so glad you found my blog as well! Thank you for the amazing compliment, Becca. I love being able to create and love it doubly when others love it too! ;)

  3. Hi Amie, I expected to wake up feeling blah today. My husband and I went to the Matchbox 20 concert here last night. Got home about 2 hours past my bedtime. But, like you, I feel pretty good! I wonder if there will be an afternoon crash!
    Gorgeous card. Those papers are just lovely. I love the colours you've used. And that glittery tape...I have never seen that before. What a snazzy little product :)

    1. The Shimmer Trim is sooo amazing! Did you know it already has the adhesive on the back? Let me know if you ever want to try it! It is awesome to have someone totally understand where you are coming from. ;) I wish we still carried this paper pack for sure. How was the concert? :)


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
