Mojo Monday #311

Mojo 311 photo Mojo311picA.jpg

It's Monday so that means Julee has provided another wonderful Mojo Monday sketch for us to work with :)

I wanted to go with an autumn themed card (surprise, surprise LOL), and found myself pulling out this wonderful trio of pumpkins from Abundant Blessings.  Being far from any type of a decent colourer, I limped along using my Twinkling H2Os.

I added some scattered leaves at the base of the pumpkins to ground them and found this wonderful polka dotted, olive ribbon in my stash - score!

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 the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.


After a busy weekend I'm ready for a rest, but no such luck.  The last three months of the year are always busy and I find it is basically a mad dash until Christmas --  can't believe I just said the "C" word...sorry!!  Just pretend I didn't wink, wink.  

I'd better run before I dig myself a bigger hole LOL!  Have a great day :)

Beautiful Fall card. Great job on the colouring of the pumpkins and leaves. Great combination of colours and DP and polka dot ribbon.
I hear you about the wished for rest after a busy weekend. We celebrated my parents' 60th wedding anniversary and had all the family over at our place. I had so much fun decorating for a diamond anniversary, but whew am I tired today;)
