Mojo Monday #274


Happy New Year's Eve everyone!!!  I am very glad to see the back end of 2012!  It has been a very hard, trying year in many ways and I am definitely looking forward to a fresh start in 2013.

Today we have a wonderful round sketch by Carole.  It was great to work with and that circle was perfect for using two of my favorite Verve dies - my beloved  jotted heart and U dies.  Lots of polka dots as well as one of my favorite colour combos - pink and grey.  Needless to say, it was fun making this card.  It's hard to see in the picture, but the heart is crimped for some dimension.

You can check out all the challenge details over on the  Mojo Monday blog and also get 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.  

Enjoy your New Year's Eve festivities if you are participating in any, or if you are like me, enjoy ringing in 2013 as you sleep (aren't I a lot of fun LOL!).  We don't have anything planned and that is fine by me.  Quite often I like to take the evening to simply reflect on the past year, and set a few goals for the upcoming year.   That way I have something to aim for rather than just drifting through the year.  Don't have a word for 2013 just yet, still pondering a few options.  I'll let you know once I decide.  Cheers to a wonderful 2013!!

You do pink so well! :)

Dawn Easton said...

LOL I knew as soon as I saw a circle option, you'd choose that! hehe....GREAT card! Love the U again too...need to pull mine out!

We don't go out for New Year's anymore either. IF I make it to midnight, it's 12:01 and I head to

It's safer to stay home anyway ;)

Happy New Year to you and your family! Best wishes for 2013!!!

Such a sweet tag, Marisa, and I love the cording. Don't have to tell you I love those polka dots, do I? :-)

I'm glad to be back to stamping on a regular basis now. I've missed it. All your cards I've missed are beautiful, as usual.

Have a fabulous 2013!

Love this sweet circle card and I never get tired of that jotted heart (one of my faves, too)! I'm content with staying home tonight in my warm flannel robe...watching the celebrations in NYC...maybe some stamping time and putting away more Christmas decor. I'm a real party animal - lol!

Lovely card! We spend a quiet evening at home. Hmmmm, a word for next year. I'm glad to be reminde of that. I like that better than resolutions.

Bonnie said...

I love all these elements and the round card! I've never done a round card. Maybe I should make a resolution? Wishing you joy in the New Year.

Wow Marissa - your cards are even prettier in Blogland!! Love them all - and loved the trip down memory lane with your favorites in 2012 - I remember seeing so many over on SCS, but again - they're even more beautiful here!
Hugs and Blessings,

I just love this card Marisa! The colors, the scale of the U, everything about it! I can see why the U and heart tag are a couple of your favorites, in fact I think I'll head on over to Verve and check out their dies right now!
