I just got around to making a card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I used K&C0. Wild Raspberry papers for this one. The stamps are from Garden Delights by Inkadinkdao. I colored them with my Marvy Markers before stamping. I colored the image on the left with rose pink and light green and them I "thumped" on some pink and green. On the image on the right, I used a base of pink and light green and "thumped" on some orange and green. I chalked around the edges of the cardstock and the images with some pink chalk. The Happy Mother's Day sentiment is by Studio G. The rhinestone flowers are from Michael's by Darice. I just picked up those today. I actually picked up a lot of little embellies- it's hard to know when to quit when they are only a dollar, but boy, those dollars add up! Good thing I had that discount coupon. If I'm not back to post before, I hope you have a blessed and Happy Easter!

Happy Saturday morning! I hope you have a great day. We will be continuing the home/ bedroom redo project- painting- so maybe in between coats I'll get to make a few cards. The card you see above involves no stamping. Actually, I did stamp an image and didn't like it, so I pulled the die cut out and covered it up. This card is made with Basic Grey sugared papers. You can get them from KL Stampin N Scrappin Store. Right now they are offering some awesome blog candy on their blog. To enter, you must make a project using items sold in their store. I cut my circles with Nestabilities circle and scallop circle dies, which they also carry.
I used this week's sketch from CPS as the layout for this card.

Stamp: Willow with sunhat Whiff of Joy; Verve sentiment
Ink: Marvy Markers
Paper: Hot off the Press
On this day, Americans are encouraged to walk to work. If you can't walk to work, walk during lunch time, or another time of the day. The goal is to walk 30 minutes a day. Health officials are hoping this will encourage people to add a 30 minute walk to their daily lives. Health officials, medical agencies, and medical organizations around the country state that a 30 minute walk will significantly improve you health. The benefits are many, including lower weight, less chance of heart disease, less risk of diabetes, and much more. This translates to a longer and healthier life. (excerpt from Holiday Insights)
Here are some great Etsy finds to make your "walk" a little easier or at least make you look "cooler" while you do it.
