MOJO has been found!

Hey stampers!  I have been struggling with my mojo for a while now.  But a friend of my sister ordered some cards so I think I have found my mojo again and so I have a new card for you.  This card is a combination of things.  I have used some new SU colors with some non SU stuff and some old SU stuff.  I went to my local Hobby Lobby this week, yes I said Hobby Lobby.  I found a background stamp with words on it and it was ON SALE!  So I snapped it up.  This card uses Rich Razzleberry, a soft yellow, the new stamp which is called Le London script.  I stamped that on the yellow with Rich Razzleberry, then I took my sanding block and went back and forth over my stamped image.  Once I had the effect I wanted, I took a sponge and sponged on some Rich Razzleberry ink lightly across the image and the darker around the edges of the yellow.  Then I have this old scrapbooking kit that I bought at a Stampin' UP! demonstrator garage sale,  I took the sticker of this little girl on the beach.  I trimmed off as much of the white sticker as I could and then sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry ink placed the sticker on the yellow card stock.  Then I have some random ribbon (who doesn't) and I did a layer of plum color satin ribbon that is 5/8" wide and then I took a white ribbon and layered that onto the plum color.  I did a cheater bow on the white and snipped the ends.  Then I adhered that to a piece of Rich Razzleberry and then I adhered that panel to a piece of barely banana cardstock and took Rich Razzleberry ink and sponged the edges around the razzleberry panel.  On the inside of the card, I stamped "thinking about you because you are so nice to think about."  I love it and I several more of these stickers and hopefully you will be seeing more in this style but I will have some new stuff for you every day this week. So thanks for hanging in there with me. 

Come and create something with me,
