Mojo Monday #256

2012 Faves

I love the last Monday of the month as it is round or square week on the Mojo Monday blog and I love making round cards :)

That being said, this one was a bit of a challenge for me.  Think my mojo took vacationing on Vancouver Island very seriously and is not quite running at full tilt yet. 

With school just a few short weeks away, my mind has definitely turned to Fall colours - it's my favorite colour pallet to work with!!  This great paper came from a Michael's paper pack and was my starting point.  It is MME's design (love the Stella and Rose line) but under the Recollections name...??  Didn't ask any questions, just snapped it up with a 40% off coupon and did a happy dance out of the store LOL!  The rest of the colours came from the paper and the rolled roses and bling were the finishing touches.  

Would love to have you play along with us this week!  Chose a sketch, or do one of each if you like!  Just pop over to the Mojo Monday blog for all the details and a chance to view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples!  Should you wish more details on their cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.

 

Thanks for for popping by today and I look forward to seeing your creations!  It never ceases to amaze me how one sketch can bring out so many styles and showcase each person's personality.  That's why I love this hobby (ahem...addiction) LOL!!

Very pretty - I see why you snapped up that paper! I would love to see you do the Happy Dance - LOL. I love your round cards too and especially when you use rolled roses which I adore (I lost my die though and have to get another - you wouldn't be surprised if you saw my craft room. Great card Marisa. Hugz!!!

Beautiful colors! I love how you did this circular design, Marisa.

Maureen said...

these are great colours :) Yes, I've noticed Michaels selling MME, but WAY over priced...but that's how they play the coupon game ;) I love when they expand their scrapbook section, though :)

Once again, I fear I'd linger on the side of boring and stick with the square card! Love your take on this sketch, though. You always do such gorgeous work with your round creations.

Love those flowers (and the fabulous paper - I, too, would take the discount and run!)

Hi Marisa,

Oh my - see I totally SUCK at circle cards and you show how BEAUTIFUL they can be. Hmmmm perhaps I have to rethink my fear of making circle cards after seeing yours.

My sister lives on Vancouver Island!

Thanks for your post - I am leaving feeling richer than when I came :)

Blessings,
Barb
