MOJO321, JUGS216 & Catered Crop


Happy Wednesday, everyone---it’s the day before Thanksgiving, so this will be quick!  I have a  card using three challenges!  The Mojo Monday sketch:

The Just Us Girls color challenge 216:

and the Catered Crop challenge this week, which is “Animal House”—use an animal on your creation!!!   I know the JUGS challenge is more Christmas-related, but I thought it would be fun for a happy birthday card:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Mojo Monday 321 Birthday Card Stampin Up

I tried to incorporate some of the inspiration photo elements into my layout, but I realized as I was posting that the plaid paper really doesn’t match my Regal Rose polka dots!  And boy, that paper was glued down well, so hopefully the recipient won’t mind that the colors are a little off!  The kitty from Storybook Friends is my simple image; I stamped the polka dots randomly on the background and added some pleated ribbon and baker’s twine:


Sentiment is from Papertrey’s little Hexagon set.  Now, off to make an apple pie!  But first, I couldn’t resist snapping this cute little photo of Cassidy taking a nap:


Have a blessed day!

  4. Very sweet! Love that cute kitty and your pretty colors, and the paper matches just fine. Happy Thanksgiving, LeAnne!

  5. This is the cutest card, love the kitty playing. It doesn't seem like Cassidy is ready to give up that nap. This is the sweetest picture. I loved the one of her sleeping on the kitchen floor the other day too!

  6. Ahh that is so cute! You did a great job coloring the fur. She looks like your Pumkin and my Max. Boy I miss Max. His purr use to fill the house. Lucy does not purr and Sophie's purr is low.
    I but that sweet little girl is purring. Is there anything sweeter that a child at sleep?
    Happy Thanksgiving,

  7. Love those big polka dots and you nailed the colour combo! Fabulous use of the Mojo sketch too :)

  8. Ooooh, LeAnne you ROCKED this one! LOVE the papers and that ruffled ribbon and the way you used the Mojo sketch! And the kitty is adorable and perfect for Catered Crop!

    But what's cuter is that sweet girl! How precious! Wish I could nap like that (and be so cute that someone wants to take my picture!) LOL

    Happy Thanksgiving, my dear friend!

  10. What an adorable card! Who wouldn't love being the recipient with these birthday wishes? If you hadn't said anything about the colors, I wouldn't have even taken a second look. Not to worry. LOVE IT!!!
