Mojo Monday blog. Love making these!
I needed a 50th birthday card for this weekend so jumped at the chance to use this sketch as it had a nice big circle for the numbers. I used some papers from Carta Bella's Ahoy There set and added a big "5-0" front and center (in black none-the-less wink, wink) so you can't miss it. Tweaked the sketch a teensy bit by adding the kraft strip as I felt the 50 needed a bit of grounding. Chevrons were embossed on the white background panel for some texture, and out came my go to embellishment for masculine cards - stars. Just realized there is absolutely no stamping on this card too. A rare occurrence!
All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also 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.
I am soooo excited Costa Rica made it to the quarter finals in the World Cup! What a game!! They played a man short for over an hour and won in a shoot out against Greece. To say I was just a tad stressed during the game is an understatement LOL! Good to be able to breathe again!! They have a tough draw in the next round - The Netherlands - but it is the furthest they have ever gone so I am thrilled for them.
Also, just wanted to let you know things are going to be a bit quieter here over the summer months (after the next two weeks that is), as I will be enjoying time with my kids. They are growing up waaaay too quickly and I deeply treasure the time we can spend together.
It's going to be a busy week with our eighteenth anniversary on the 1st, a family day at the water slides on the 3rd (oh ya!!) and our friend's 50th on the 4th. Fingers crossed the weather cooperates!
Have a fabulous week!
