He-ey! Another item I can share! Here's my entry for the OCC challenge. GREAT layout...I can see myself using this for many other occasions....birthdays, weddings, baby showers etc! Check out the OCC blog for the other sweet sweet entries, and the real sketch!

I made 5 of these babies...they match my wrapping (and gift tags I talked about earlier, and will show a bit later) and look fantastic as a whole package! I made them in the match book style, and when opened, the SU! Slot Punch was used at the left and right edges to hold a gift card inside. Like I said, I can see myself making these for ALL occasions!

Ingredients: (All SU! unless otherwise indicated)
Slot Punch, Circle of Friendship Stamp Set, Delightful Decorations Stamp Set, Polka Dot Stamp, Real Red CS, Whisper White CS, Staples from Dollarama, Jewels from Michaels, 1" and 1 1/2" circle punches from Marvy, Craft Smart White Pigment Ink, Ribbon from Michaels.

SPCC # 27

Hi Girlies! All I have to say is "DANG! That's one hot color combo!" Yay Samantha for picking it! I'm not typically a "blue" girl, but give me ANYTHING with a brown tone, and I can totally make it work. I luuuuurve browns!

A really good friend of mine requested a card for her daughter's birthday. Her daughter was born on December 26, so I can only imagine that over the years she received a TON of birthday presents wrapped in Christmas paper, or the proverbial "Here's 2 gifts in one" statement (sooooo sorry all you December babes, my birthday is June 9....almost exactly 6 months from Christmas. YAY mom and dad! ;o). So, what better way to celebrate her special day, than without any Christmas colors, and with a cupcake (vs. Christmas) theme!

Soooo....Happy Birthday Shannon!

Ingredients: (all SU! unless otherwise indicated)
Sweet Little Sentiments Stamp Set, Paper Salon's "Date Builder" Stamp Set, Button from Forever in Time, Ribbon from Michaels, Opal Shimmer from unknown source, Glue from Dollarama, Thread from unknown source, Kraft CS, Brocade Blue CS and Classic Ink, Bashful Blue CS.

Mojo Monday

Hi Friends! I've been busy lately making the teachers and daycare providers presents (which I won't post, only because they aren't originals...I bought Kristina Werners Virtual Card Club for September, and have been mass producing these goodies. They look fantastic and are fairly simple. If you're in need of a gift, copy and paste this link into your browser to explore ), and gift tags for my own gift giving (which I don't think I'll post as they are soooo simple, but so cute I may change my mind!)that I haven't created much to share! Please excuse my absence, but be assured it hasn't been an idle one! :o)

Ok, so onto what I AM posting! Hee! Here's my loose interpretation of the Mojo Monday sketch ( ). A gorgeous sketch, which lent itself perfectly to this card! My BFF is turning 40 in 2 weeks, had planned her own party, only to be surprised by it really occurring 1 week early. She was truly floored, and it was so fun to share in that! Happy Birthday Michelle!!!

Ingredients: (all SU! unless otherwise noted)
Basic Black CS, Rich Razzleberry CS, Bermuda Bay CS, Pumpkin Pie CS, Kiwi Kiss CS, Silver CS from the Japanese Paper Factory, Black Staz-on Ink, Big Birthday Candle Stamp Set, Marvy 1" and 1 1/4" punches, SU! slot punch, FaLaLa Slice cartridge.
