Mojo Monday #68 - One sketch/Two cards :)

Good Morning Everyone, 

Do you need a mojo boost this morning? Then head down to the Mojo Monday blog and check out Julee's awesome new sketch! This sketch #68 on the left is from last monday (I am so glad I had a little time last night to play along! woo-hoo!). I loved all the samples of the Mojo Makers and couldn't wait to play along. 

On the upper left corner of the sketch - there is a little half circle element - I thought of using this element as the "sun" in one card and as the "moon" in the second card.

Welcome Baby card (clothes hanging in the sun)

I loved the bright colors of this paper and it was so much fun to paper piece the little clothes on the clothes line - the button accent in the corner is to be like a the sun and there are sparkles in little spots in the card - from the clothes and also in the word "boy".

Materials used:
Paper: DCVW and solid colors from stash
Ink: Marcella K.
Stamps: Clear Stamps
Accessories: liquid pearls, CM oval cutters, CM medow makers, button from stash, Martha small scallop punch, Waterfall Stickles
Movie watched: Someone like You (two words: yummy Hugh :)

Hugs and Kisses in the Moonlight

I had so much fun making this card - these cute little elephants were cut out (Sizzex) using two Basic grey DP. I was trying to create a little scene in the moonlight for these cute little love birds... err.. love elephants :) I have a wonderful friend who is slightly obsessed with elephants (you know, I love you girl!!) and this is a little Valentine's card for her - (C, act surprised ok! ;)

Materials Used:
Paper: Black is from stash, All other Paper is Basic Grey (Boxer)
Ink: Adirondack Expresso
Stamps: Sentiment from Taylored Expressions (Love is Sweet set)
Accessories: liquid pearl, cut out heart on Basic Grey, Martha Scallop for "moon", buttons from stash, crystal stickles for stars, Making Memories silver brad with a touch of black paint for eyes
Movies Watched: Fellowship of the Ring of course! (again!!)

Hope that you are all having a great Monday - I am off to check out Julee's newest sketch and I suppose I should do all that other stuff like clean up after breakfast, grocery shopping and working too - LOL!!

Thank you so much for visiting this morning! 
Ciao for now,
