Mojo Monday Week 70


I loved, loved, loved the Mojo Monday sketch this week! I knew the second I saw it what I wanted to do. I have a friend who is pregnant with her 3rd baby right now (#1 and #2 are boys) and she is kind of hoping this one is a girl. She's almost far enough along for "the ultrasound" and I am hoping to give her this card if she gets happy girl news. I got a new stamp set from The Angel Company called Wild For You. I knew that the giraffe would be so fun to use for this card. I did have to make the card a 5x5 to try and fit my sentiment on the way I wanted. I found this designer paper a long time ago at a local scrapbook store when they were "going out of business." I bought every sheet they had. If ever a girl has fallen in love with designer paper, it was me when I saw this paper. I loved the different shades of pink and brown and the swirly circles. I loved everything about it. Another company ended up buying this scrapbook store and they stayed open as a scrapbook store. So when I go in I always check to see if they have this paper and if they do I buy some more. I just love it! And the big circle really is a deep brown that matches the card. It's not black...I promise!

Edited to add: the paper is Peachy Keen Dazzling Dish. If you find some, buy it. You won't regret it!!!

I loved this sketch too! It was challenging but also really fun. I will be posting my card using it tomorrow.

I also love this patterned paper. You didn't say who the manufacturer of it was. I guess because you want to hoard it all for yourself :-)!

This is a sweet baby card. I hope your friend has a girl this time. Funny story that I have along these same lines. I have a friend who had three boys. She wasn't planning on having any more children, but mother nature had other plans. So this time around she was hoping for a girl but instead had twin boys! So five boys at home now, four of whom are under 5 years old!

Your story sounds a lot like mine. I started off scrapbooking too. My sister saw my first scrapbooks and said, "Those are nice, Robin, but why are you stamping?" You do nice work. Your projects are great.

I love this card! It's nice to know I am not the only one completely addicted to DP. I too have been scrappin' for years, but only found stamping 3 years ago.

OK this is too funny! I am scrolling down, browsing your blog and I think wait, this card looks familiar. I have so many windows open on my PC and one of them is your gallery on SCS, with this card showing! Too funny. Obviously I like it!
