Lookin' for my mojo......

....anybody seen it???? I have missed crankin out stamped goods....it just seems like life has me by the horns, you know what I mean??? Well, I was determined to create this morning and since it is Monday...I thought it was perfect to start with the mojo monday sketch challenge.

Catalog transitions are so hard for me.....I know I am going to miss the current designer series papers and in colors that I want to hoard them....I feel that I should not use them at all...lol! But yet, my new stuff hasn't even shipped yet from last Monday....so new designer series paper and in colors aren't an option. Oh, I know there are 48 other colors to work with - it's my party, and I'll cry if I want to! hehehe!!!

Anyway.....here is my card for the day:

I had so many ideas for the area where the flower is....and I thought....you know..Urban Oasis has the coolest papers in them...the flowers can stand on their own just by cutting them out. So that is what I did :o)

My card base is whisper white, I don't do that often, but I wanted a "clean," "tailored," & "crisp" look today. All of the designer series paper is urban oasis, including the flower cut outs. My sentiment is from on your birthday. The mats are not quite navy....did I ever mention that my very first ink pad and paper was not quite navy???? there is some trivia for you...lol!

And the kiwi kiss ribbon???? Well....I sure will miss that...as a matter of fact I have a couple of rolls on the way to hoard....lol!!! The brads are from the earth elements brads collection.

I decided to spruce up the inside a bit....wanna see?

What do you think? Let me know, I have big shoulders, I can take it! hehehe!!
