This past week was an extremely busy week for me at work and I was just too exhausted to try to do anything crafty at night.  But I did get a card made today.

My inspiration for the card was last week's Mojo Monday sketch 309 designed by JuleeTilman.  And don't you just love my new embossing folder that I used on the brown paper.


I hope everyone has a great week.

Luck, love and laughter,

Oh my's hard to believe that it has been almost three years since I  last posted to my blog.  The last post was of a birthday card that I made for my granddaughter's 7th birthday and she will be 10 years old in a little less than three months.

I haven't done much crafting over the last year or so and it hit me last week that I really miss it.  I took vacation days on Thursday and Friday so I would have a really long Labor Day holiday weekend.  I made a card on Thursday and that started a card making frenzy.  I had forgotten how much I really enjoy the creativity of making cards.  Here's a sample of some of the cards that I have made during my "mini" vacation.

I wanted a masculine look and thought these colors worked well for that look.  The inspiration for the card came from a recent Card Maker magazine issue.

Got the inspiration for this card from a recent Card Maker magazine issue.  The only embellishment I used on this card was the ribbon. 

I used last week's Mojo Monday sketch as the inspiration for this cards.

My daughter, Robin, and I have challenged each other to post to our blogs this week.  Okay, Robin, I have met my challenge.  It's your turn now.  And we need to post at least once a week!!

Love and best wishes to all,
