Birthday Mojo



I've penned all the birthdays of my friends and family into our calendar this year with the intent of actuallymailing their cards this year! (we'll just forget about last year, now shall we...) Looking out just to June, that means I am in need of 40 cards so far. And... that doesn't even include the ones I'd planned to make for Operation Write Home! Or to just have on hand in my card stash!! -gulp-
Even ((ahem)) re-purposing some cards I may have on hand, that still leaves quit the pile of Birthday cards I need to make! So I think I will declare January to be Birthday month, and get to making!
For this card, to get the "mojo flowing" in the craft room, I played along with the Mojo Monday sketch. What do you think of the results?


Mojo Monday #222 - Fabulous Birthday

I used Daffodil Delight, Rose Red, Early Espresso, and Regal Rose card stocks; some Rose Red Designer Paper; and the sentiment and cupcake are from the Create a Cupcake stamp set #121982. A fun little set for birthdays. The sentiment reads "There's something fabulous about your birthday {must be you!}" Sweet, huh? The bling was from the kids stash. ((Hahaha - yes, my kids have a stash!)) This one is an OWH card, but I like the layout enough to try it again, so perhaps some lucky calendar date of mine will get a card just like this!

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #222
If you'd like to play along with the crowd at Mojo Monday, or just want to see what everyone else made of the sketch, go visit them at mojomonday.blogspot.com  Every Monday they offer a different challenge sketch, and the first Monday of the month they offer prizes for playing along!

Hope you're having a super start to the week,
Happy Crafting!
