Blogger's Challenge 31

All I can think of when I look at this card is "wanted -- to be able to stamp today" Yikes it was a tough day. Only made two cards and although I like this one better than the last, it is not real what I wanted again. Oh well, we do get days like this and the best thing to do is go to bed and start again in the morning -- right after this post I am doing that!

This weeks challenge was to use the layout on page 141 of the Spring Summer Stampin Up catalog -- the welcome baby card. I had a horrible time trying to get a clear pictures, the horse is not that washed out looking in real life. I used the Wanted and Bronc Buster stamp sets along with the retired Outlaw designer paper. I also used Really Ruse, Sage Shadow, Creamy Caramel card stock. Other supplies: twine, brads, jumbo eyelets, circle punch, scallop circle punch, paper piercer, mat pack. Thanks for lookin, sorry about the bad MoJo day! Don't forget to check out all the other players on my sidebar. I am sure they have wonderful cards to share. Goodnight!

MJ, don't make me fly to NY and smack you silly. This card is awesome, I love what you did with those jumbo eyelets. I've owned them since they day they came out and finally used my first 3 on your sketch challenge. I like the look and really must use them all up! Your card has it all, fabulous layout, interesting textures, embellishments, it's front page magazine worthy!

Well, MJ, your design sense really stands out here. From the grommets to the bradsd to the casual way the twine is wrapped...just great. Bad MoJo? No Way!

I think this looks great. Love how you used the jumbo eyelets and the patterned papers. I had such a hard time using this set that I traded it away . . .
