Mojo Songbirds

Well it is Monday again and you know what that means; Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! I took the weekend off from stamping so it felt good to sit down and make a card. My desk and surrounding floor is an absolute mess, but sometimes I find creativity in the mess! I love having things neat and orderly, but the messier things get in the creative process, the more the ideas flow! At least that is how it is for me! If I already have an idea, then I need things to be tidy.


I headed over to the MojoMondayblog to see this week's sketch! It is a fun one! I knew I wanted to use this new paper I got over the weekend called "Flower Patch" from Making Memories. My Mom and I stopped at my favorite Scrapbook Store after the bridal shower and I went crazy on ribbon! I did pick up some envelopes, paper and Kaiser flowers, too, but the majority was luscious ribbon! After I got the base of the card ready, I needed some stamps. I couldn't decide right away, but settled on using theSongbirds stamp set from TJ Designs, a division of TweetyJillPublications. I have been so fortunate over the years to have many of my projects featured in her Idea Books. Over Christmas I was feverishly working on quite a few new designs that will be featured in her upcoming releases! I will be so excited to see them in print~! I put my heart and soul into them!

This card will be going in my stash that I have set aside to surprise someone with! Thanks for fluttering by!



P.S. Did you see my Audrey Award on my sidebar! How fun is that? Also, if you would like to subscribe to my blog, you can click on the feedblitz counter on the side. I had some technical difficulties over the weekend and had to delete my other widget.

I am playing catch up. What is wrong with all our blogs lately. I had to delete my entire TEMPLATE and begin fresh and it took me and Microsoft 2 weeks to figure out it was BLOGGER vs. a gadget I downloaded. Frustrating. But I was able to save my prior posts, but they have to be added one at a time. If you have any suggestions for making it easier, let ME know...as far as your blog, I love this card and I always love checking your blog. Thanks for all you do. You don't need to change a thing, in my opinion. Just keep up the great designs. You are a source of inspirtion to me. Linda Crowder
