Getting The Mojo Going!


I hope you all had a fab bank holiday weekend - we had a scorcher! The weather took a typical turn for the worse on Monday evening (in true bank holiday style!) but it was still lovely!

So today is officially my first day of half term - woo hoo! (yesterday didn't count as everyone else was off too!) So I made a bee-line for my crafting corner this morning. I'm surprised that I haven't even managed to stamp a single image over the weekend - been soooooo busy!

To get my mojo into gear I decided to play along with the Mojo Monday sketch (week 88). Here's the sketch:To add to this, I decided to play along with Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite colour challenge #7.
Such scrummy colours! That raspberry was screaming out Raspberry Fizz so I decided to play using my Papertrey Ink stash (which is depleting rapidly LOL!)

Here's what I came up with:
I hope you like it! The only thing not PTI on here is the white card and brads (which I had to paint with white acrylic paint as I had no white brads at all!)
I attempted to stamp on the ribbon - I'm not sure if I like it but as I'd stamped it I thought 'Hey, I might as well use it!' LOL!

Card Recipe

(All Papertrey Ink Unless Stated)
Stamps: Around & About Sentiments
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avocado
Card: Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado Bitty Dot Basics, White (from my stash)
Accessories: Ripe Avocado Ribbon, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Swirls Embossing Folder, Pink Jewel (from stash), Brads (from stash), White Acrylic Paint (to alter the brads!)

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope to post a bit more this week but for now I must dash as I need to get ready to go and see Counting Crows live (Sooooooooooooo excited I think I might burst! LOL!)

Catch ya later!
