Mojo 100 a thank you and a RAK

A big post today, well not so much big but lots to share. Mojo Monday have reached 100 woohoo. What a FAB job these ladies do and it is with great anticipation that I wait for every Monday for the latest sketch. Thank you so much for all your contributions. And it is on this note that I thought I would make the Mojo 100 sketch a thank you card. In addition to the sketch I thought I would challenge myself to use a colour that I never ever thought I would ever use. I was chatting with some fellow stampers yesterday and we talked about what colours we steer way away from. Tangerine Tango came up so I thought I would give it a shot last night.

Here's my take on the Mojo 100 sketch. I actually really like it, but maybe thats just me. You can't see it in the photo but I have used my new Spica glitter pens on all the petals. Very subtle glitter but I think it look fab IRL.

I have used (all products Stampin Up unless indicated):
C/stock: Chocolate chip, tangerine tango, kiwi kiss, whisper white, summer sun
Ink: chocolate chip, tangarine tango, kiwi kiss
Stamps: Trendy trees, funky forest wheel
Accessories: sizzix flower daisies, gold brads (non SU), tangerine tango striped 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, spica glitter pens, eyelet border punch, mat pack, cutter kit - distressing tool, circle scalloped nestie

In addition, as the school quiz night/auction has finished there is a need to make thank you cards and send them to all those that contributed towards the huge success that it was. We need to make 60 cards (yep 60 aaarrrrgh) and being on my tangerine tango experiment I thought I would simplify the card above and came up with this. It is now awaiting approval before I attempt to carve some time out of my week to do the other 59!!!

And (yep I'm not finished yet) look what I received this morning in the post. How very exciting and wow what a fabulous, fabulous card. Gotta case this one. Thank you so much Jo I really enjoyed receiving your card and thank you so much for thinking of me.

Have a great Wednesday. Really should do some work now. Thanks for visiting

  1. Yep you were right, it turned out to be a really nice card. Even the simple thank you card is not to shabby either. Oooh aren't you the lucky one getting a rak. Well done girlie.
