Mojo Monday 190
Being true to my promise not to use my Verve flowers for the next few cards, I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch and Paper and Such Design's challenge to make a birthday card for my brother. It also qualifies for Whoopsi Daisy's Challenge to Punch it out and One Stitch At A Time anything goes. I dug into my slowly dwindling Costco DP pack and pulled out this fun, striped DP - perfect for a masculine card. I also took the opportunity to use my spiral punch which I've had for a long time and have never used - go figure!! Even better, my star Sizzex die got to come out and play too.
Since I didn't have any ledger or lined paper for the sentiment panel, I created my own by stamping the line image from Verve's Text Notes. I stamped it in VersaMark so it is hard to see in the picture, but it does show up in real life. Sahara Sand may have been a better choice for more visible lines - note to self for next time. I'm pretty happy with the result and I think my brother will like it :)
Enjoy what is left of your weekend :) We'll be wrapping ours up by watching the Vancouver Canucks play their first game of the next series against the San Jose Sharks. Vancouver fans are soooo ready for them to win the Stanley Cup...car flags are all over the place. Reminds me of when the Olympics were here and everyone had Canada flags on their cars. Hopefully they can make it all the way this year, but it's one series at a time and they have a few left to go. Go Canucks Go! Then it's on to the Survivor finale, so we will be spending a good part of our evening in front of the TV as a family, and I'm sure the cat will end up in someone's lap somewhere along the way too :)
