Mojo 358


Happy Saturday, peeps!  I have had this little image from Hello Darling sitting on my desk, stamped and colored with Blendabilities, for a couple of weeks now, and I thought I should actually finish it up and make it into a card!  I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this week:

and added some pretty new papers from Flower Pot and All Abloom:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Mojo Monday 358 Hello Darling Stampin Up

I have been slow to get on the Blendabilities bandwagon, but after watching a few videos and a little practice, I was pretty happy with this effort.  I’ll keep plugging along!  The original piece had a little smudge of ink close to the smaller leaves, so I fussy-cut the good part out and stamped the image again on a scrap of Lost Lagoon and colored the leaves, then popped up the cut part of the image:


I just hated to toss the image after all my work!  The leaves do look a little different on the two different colors of cardstock, but I still like the effect.  I added some Mossy Meadow ribbon and a wee bit of Coastal Cabana scallop in the background to complement the Coastal Cabana flowers.  I also finally used my new Heart Border punch!  What a fun little tool!  And I added some piercing, and finally a sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts.

It has been downright chilly here in SE PA, although I am not complaining a bit, it’s been even too chilly to go swimming!  But we got out our slip & slide and Cassidy and her cousin braved the cool air to do some slipping and sliding!




Enjoy your day!  Tomorrow I am the hostess for the Paper Players, AND….it is a very special day in our household!  Be sure to come see what it is!

So pretty! Love that heart punch and the way you colored the flowers. My kids used to have a slip and slide! It brings back memories!

The card is adorable and I love seeing Cassidy grow! Wonderful pictures! I still remember seeing that very first one when she was born before I really "knew you!"
