I'm So Glad........................MoJo193

Hello and welcome back to another
MoJo Monday.
Todays sketch is round or square.
If you are feeling very inspired, then
try both.
This sketch is very easy, the background is very simple.
Its a square cut into quarters along the diagonal, so you end up with four triangles. Flip 2 of them and pieced them back together.

For my card I used this beautiful paper from Prima called
"Spring Tide".
Recollections butterfly, M's ribbon,scallop nesties, Verve sentiment .Added a few rhinestones.

The weather was nice and warm on Sunday ,
and since I was off, we went for a little cruise
with the car club, came back and did a lot of
work in my garden before dark.
Overall a good weekend.


Ok, onto my card, since it was a fun sketch,
I went very simple with it. I used more of
Stella & Rose papers, SOme MA ribbon,
Prima flower, Verve Sentiment,added some
little charms.

I was in love with the colors.I wanted to use the brown, I so love brown,
and for all you viewers who follow me, you know I use brown a lot.
I decided to make this cute basket with the strawberries,with a matching card.

 This template is from the SVG Shop.I cut it out using my Cricut , with the Scal program.I used some paper from SU.
 For my card I use SCS sketch #332. I also used a MS border punch to match up with the handle I used on the basket.Added some of the yummy double sided brown ribbon and a bow to the panel. Ribbon from the Monthly Club.

I used this yummy brown double sided satin ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon  club for May.So nice to work with and you don't have to worry if your tails on your bow is showing the other side , as it all looks the same.I threaded the ribbon thru the handle and then made a couple of bows
for each side of the Handle.
View of the strawberry open, filled with some chocolate kisses.

I found some of this gorgeous paper in one of our local stores.
Its called Lost and Found from MME.This sheet of paper with the roses has loads of glitter,and also had a scallop edge.I took advantahe of the scallops for the bottom of my card and then cut a strip for the middle of my card.

I also used my new Verve ,Bloom and Grow stamps, along with the dies..I am loving these stamps. I think this may be my fav of all time.
I used a scallop nestie and a MS  punch for the leaves.
This set of stamps comes with some awesome leaves as well, along with a die
