IB78 & Mojo 296 Get Well


TGIF, peeps!  Do you have some special plans for the weekend?  I think it will be a rainy one here, so I will just chill and enjoy being home!  I found a super fun inspiration photo at Inspired By, and I just loved these colors:

OOooeeee, I wish I had one of these radios…any of them!  I matched the colors up with the Mojo Monday sketch to make this beach-themed creation:


This card is a wee bit smaller than a regular A4 size, as I had a piece of Coastal Cabana that was a bit shy of 4 x 5 1/4”, so I just adjusted my base so I wouldn’t have to cut into a brand new piece!!!  I stamped a cheesecloth image in Very Vanilla ink (it almost looks 3-dimensional!):


and stamped some seashore images in Coastal Cabana, Blushing Bride and Crisp Cantaloupe, using my nesties to cut out the circles.  I added a piece of Natural ribbon and a little strip of embossed Crisp Cantaloupe for my vertical embellishments.


My Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiment was punched out with the new Artisan Label punch…love the look of that!  Finally, with some hesitation, I opened my sewing machine to stitch some wonky stitching around the edges.  It is no worse the wear after falling on my toe, although the on-off switch is not making a good connection…..good thing for masking tape!  I guess I will have to take it to the repair shop after all!  And as for my toe…it has a nice ring of black around the toenail…..which will probably be falling off sometime in the future.  ICK!

If you have any questions about anything I used in the card, please feel free to email me!

Cassidy has discovered picture puzzles and she loves putting them together over and over again!  Recently she figured out she could assemble them without the base, and she was quite happy with herself!:

These colours are fabulous together LeAnne...and you're absolutely correct, the cheese cloth definitely looks 3D! I never even noticed that in the catalogue...I'll have to go on a hunt now! TFS and enjoy the day and weekend!!!!!
