A little Mojo

I feel like I can't post nearly as much as I would like. Believe me, I am certainly creating things, but not all of it is cards. I've been sewing most of the Christmas gifts this year. Didn't know I could sew too, did ya? My machine died this year. . .R.I.P. my poor 10 year old Kenmore. That brought me to tears, but my mom reminded me that she has an amazing 10 year old Bernina! My mom lives with us, but has spent most of her time working, so sewing has not been something she's had a bunch of time for. That, and her machine has been in storage. Well, mine sputtering out it's final breath has brought hers to the house! Not only am I using it, but my mom can now start quilting again. . .YAY! Believe me, that woman can quilt!

Anyway, onto my card. . .I got a bit sidetracked there, hehe. I made this card for the Mojo Monday challenge. Mojo always has great sketches to try your hand at. I pulled out my new Blooming Bouquet set and Blooming Bouquet Die from Clear Dollar Stamps for this one. I added the set called Healing Scriptures for some sentiment, and voila!
Stamps: Blooming Bouquet & Healing Scriptures
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Hot Cocoa (CDS), Red Velvet Cake (CDS)
Paper: Vanilla (CDS), Hot Cocoa (CDS), Cotton Candy (CDS), Ripe Olive (CDS), BG Curio
Accessories: Blooming Bouquet Die, dimensionals, sponges, Star Dust Stickles, Old Olive ribbon (SU), Vanilla Ribbon
Maybe I'll get a little camera happy in this Christmas crafting craziness to snap a few pictures of my sewing projects, but don't hold your breath, haha.
