A True Friend ......

Hi and welcome back to another MoJo Monday.
Todays sketch is so fun, It was designed by the talented Teresa.You can make either a round or square card or both,lol.
I did both.I used the same paper as I did for my last post.
My room is still a mes,s and I can barely see my desk, but this paper was still setting out.I worked all week plus the whole weekend, and 3 nights
at that, so needless to say, not much got done in my room this week.
I am hoping that today I can make some headway with it and get caught up on some work I have to do for my other design team.
I am not sure how everyone did their circle card with the scallops, I would love to know.I believe I did it the hard way,lol.
Anyone want to share how they fold their circle cards with the scalllops?

I Love You To Pieces....

Welcome back .....
Wow, this weeekend off, flew by way to fast.
Dh and I have been very busy all weekend trying to get my scraproom
all organized.I moved into this room over a year ago because it was a tad bit
bigger and it had more wall space for shelves and pegboard,etc.
Because I was in a hurry to move in,shelves and pegboard got installed but it
wasn't working for me.I had to much stuff,lol, and it didn't get put away
properly.I had talked to Dh, about doing some rearranging to make it work better and be able to find my things easily.So, this is what we have been doing all weekend.He installed more shelves, added some more pegboard and I have
been going thru all my stuff.I have one side of the room about done, it will take me all week to finish this off, since I have to work as well.
I can't believe how much stuff I was hoarding. I have filled 2 garbage bags
with empty boxes, paper, containers, etc.I am also purging and have filled a couple of shopping bags with some paper , stickers, etc I will never use and I haven't even gone thru my racks of paper yet.DH put in more racks, so I can sort my paper and cardstock better.
I have someone in mind who I think can use some of the things I am purging.
Hopefully, she can take some of it.
Needless to say , in the middle of all this is my desk and I can't even find the
top,lol.
I manage to clean off a space to work on my cards for this weekend.

The sketch for this MoJo MOnday is brought to you by Mary.
I just love it, so very easy and that is what I need at the moment,lol.
I pulled out some MM paper from my scrap drawer and this is what I created.
I used my new MS heart border punch.



Supplies:
Paper:MM
Stamps:Verve
Ink:Memento
Accessories:Versa mark, Ranger EMBP,$store gems,Offray ribbon,heart brad form my stash.

Thinking Of You.....

Hi And welcome back to another Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.
The challenge for this Sunday is a sketch.
Isn't this an awesome sketch?
The theme and occasion for your card can be anything you choose. You are free to twist, turn, flip or flop the sketch as long as you can see the original sketch in your finished card. Oh, and don’t forget to stamp!
I am very pleased with how this card turned out, and I didn't even used any ribbon,lol.
I made another resolution, which was to try and use all my stamps at least once.
I've had this set for some time and this is the first I have inked it up.
I stamped the cross in black and added a bit of color with my Tombows.



Supplies:
Paper: SU
Stamps: INkadinkado
Ink: Versafine

A $10. gift certificate.

Edit to add.
Sorry this is late posting, I thought I had it schedule to post with the Stamptacular post, but for some reason it didn't.
I was gone most of the day, I went to Michaels and then as soon as I got
home I took down my Christmas tree and decorations and packed it away.
Just realized it wasn't posted.

Believe Set !

A project I kept promising to post and just now getting it done.
A birthday set for a very special person.......My Sister.
It was my sister's birthday awhile back and I had started this set for her ,but didn't get it done in time for her birthday.I kept putting it off to finish, not sure why, but when I saw the Believe set that Julee had designed ,I knew how I wanted to finish off this set.So I dug it out and waited for the set to arrive in my mailbox.
My sister is a Survivor and I knew she would love this.She follows my blog and always telling me how much she loves the things I do.I knew she would adore and treasure this.
Because she is following my blog, that is why I didn't post it when I had it done. I wanted her to see it first before she saw it on my blog.
Needless to say , it was way late for her birthday and I postpone mailing it till I
mailed out her Christmas gifts.
I know I am bad with mailing out cards and things on time, but she forgave me
when she saw it,lol.
She did get her Christmas gifts on time!
Complete Set

+
Birthday card

+
Journal and inside front cover.
I started out first with this journal, knowing that she would love to have one from one of the comments she had said to me awhile ago.
I found this journal in the $ bin at Michaels along with the rest of the things I used for this project.I've had this stuff for awhile, as I am always going thru the
bin for things I can alter for a later date.The journal had red on the front and back and I covered it using some matching cardstock, using one of my labels nesties.
I stamped the flower stamps many many times , cut them out,and layered them.Added some glitter with a pen to finish them off. Pop dotted them.
Set Of Cards +Card Purse Box
I made this purse box following a tut on SCS found here>>>>>>Card Purse
I modified it a bit bigger to hold my cards.I made the box out of a matching file folder that I got at Michaels, plus used up some of the smaller pieces on the cards.I also took apart the box the pen came in as it was red and used it for my template to make a box to match for the pen.

+
Card Purse + Pen

+
Deck Of Cards + Magnets
I found a set of playing cards and some magnets to match and decorated them
up using the yummy flower stamp in the Believe set.Added some ribbon.
+

+
Close up of the 4 cards that she can give away( which I doubt she will,lol)
+
Book Mark with Clip

The book mark was made using 2 pieces of the file folder , stuck together using some score tape.The folder was very sturdy and the 2 pieces made a very nice bookmark.
I also found this black clip which I used to attach to the bookmark.
I cut a circle from some of the scraps left from the folder and added to the clip.
After I had all this done , I wonder how I was gonna finish all of this off to showcase it, to mail this to her , she lives in NL.
So I went searching thru my stuff and I found this white box I had purchased from Michaels a long time ago, gotta love Michaels. It was so long I forgot I even had it,lol.
I covered it with another file folder, added some ribbon around the box and finished it off, using nesties labels cut from matching card stock.


Everything fitted inside the box.
My sister was totally in love with it.
Supplies:
Paper: SU cardstock & File folder from M's
Stamps: Verve " Believe"
Ink:VersaFine
Accessories:Offray ribbon ,Labels nesties, HA pearls, journal, pen, playing cards, magnets,box, clip, all from M's.
