LOST: Mojo

Hi stampers!  It's happened again!  My mojo has run away again!  I think I'll name my next dog Mojo...that way I can say "here Mojo" and my mojo will come to me:-)  Hehe!  Anyway, I've had a million things on my to do list lately (our tree is STILL up....ugh) but with going out of  town unexpectedly for a funeral last week and working late this week the stuff is just not getting crossed off the list AND nothing is getting stamped either.  I had a big project to work on (tune in this week to find out what) today so I finally got to sit down and stamp "for fun" after dinner....and NOTHING!  I had no ideas what to do or what to use.

I finally remembered that I wanted to work on the Monday Mojo sketch challenge this week.  Add the fact that I used a lot of the SAB everyday enchantment DSP earlier today so I had a lot of scraps laying around and it hit me!  This sketch is perfect for lots of DSP layers and other fun Occasions Mini and SAB goodies which have been so sadly neglected this week and last.  So, I came up with this little gem:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Friendly phrases
Paper: Very vanilla, poppy parade, pool party, calypso coral smooth & textured, everyday enchantment DSP (SAB)
Ink:  Calypso coral, pool party
Accessories:  Basic pearls, large basic pearls, itty bitty punch pack, scallop circle punch, circle punch, lucky limeade organdy ribbon (SAB - ribbon & brad pack)

Yippie!  My mojo is back....at least for the moment!  I really love how this card turned out although I did have a tough time deciding whether to use a pool party card base or very vanilla.  I finally settled on the vanilla as it looked a bit more bright.  The sentiments from friendly phrases are just too cute and fun and look great with this DSP.  They are both so cheery.  This will be perfect for a birthday card!

I sponged the edges of the calypso coral textured panel since the DSP is slightly distressed and also the scallop circle so it would stand out a bit better against the DSP.   I'm most pleased with the cuuuute little flower on my sentiment panel.  I used two of the four petal flowers from the itty bitty punch pack.  I sponged them and bent the petals up a bit then added the pearl in the center.  For "leaves" I cut a small piece of the new organdy lucky limeade ribbon from the SAB catalog and it was perfect!   The big pearls are new and can be found in the occasions mini!  It was the first time I'd broken into those!

Make sure to stop by tomorrow for some exciting news!  Happy stamping!
