Mojo 159


I haven’t done a Mojo Monday sketch for a long, long time!  I needed a thank you card, so using the sketch as my starting point, I chose a new stamp set I just got, Style Beautiful:


I can see so many possibilities with this set….and just not enough hours in the day!  I wanted to bling this up some more but thought it looked classy enough just the way it was!  The image was colored with Baja Breeze ink and a blender pen, then highlighted with a Jelly Roll glitter pen; it always disappoints me when you can’t see that effect in my photos! 


Anyway, the Elegant Soiree DP was a perfect complement to this image, and the black accents really make it stand out.  To get the bottom edge, I ran my paper through the Big Shot with the Top Note die just enough to cut the border, then reversed it back out again.  I used the little edge piece as an accent for my narrow black grosgrain ribbon. 


It’s pretty faint, but I used another image from the set for the background of my “thank you”, which is from Day of Gratitude.  And I want to thank you for all the compliments about my sweet little granddaughter!!  I am so glad you indulge me!  She does take away from my stamping time, but I know these days are precious, so I am enjoying them.  If I am not visiting & commenting, it’s only because I am tending to her little needs!!  And yesterday, when she woke up from one of her short little naps, here is what she greeted me with:


Shouldn’t we all wake up so happy & cheerful?!  There must be a lesson to learned here somewhere!  Enjoy your day and your weekend, everyone!  God bless!

Beautiful card LeAnne! I love how you colored the image--haven't seen that done before--it's gorgeous! If she could talk, Cassidy would say "I love you this much Grandma" in the bottom pic! TFS.

What a beautiful and elegant card, LeAnne! I need a sympathy card and may just have to case this and use it as one! Keep sharing the photos of the wee one. I just love the look of pure joy on her sweet face!!

What a fabulous card. Is that an SU stamp set?
That little baby is so happy and I can see that her personality is starting to come out.
God Bless you and your family.

Omg, LeAnne. I'm sitting here smiling ear to ear and chuckling. I just love your sweet granddaughter! That smile is so contagious...doesn't it just melt all your cares away? Plus, the fact that she's smiling up at her beloved Grandma is just the icing on the cake! God love her ♥ Thank you for sharing photos of Cassidy...she could brighten anyone's day :]

Your card is so elegant! I agree...the image colored and highlighted with the glitter pens is classy on its own! Beautiful choice of colors and I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who still colors with ink and blender pens ;] LOL

Beautiful card, LeAnne! I just got this set, but have yet to ink it up! Great job with the layout! And you can tell that Cassidy is so happy to be spending time with her grandmother!

What an angel she is!!!

Lovely card too! Those gel pens add so much but they are difficult to photograph well.
