*A Pop of Colour*

Two teenagers.... how on earth did that happen?

Yup, I'm dwelling!

It's what I do.

Silly, I know...

But did I tell you that my baby is a teenager now??!

Imagine how my Mom feels that her baby is going to be 40 this summer!

I know... it's just a number!  I don't feel 40.  I don't feel old enough to have two teenagers.  40 isn't old

Well, maybe a little old

LOL

Anyway.....

This is another catch up card for the MojoMonday sketches I missed in January and February.
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry
*Images:  Lizzie Anne Say It In Script
*Ink:  Stampin' Up! Rich Razzleberry; Memento Tuxedo Black
*Tools:  Big Shot; Nestabilities; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder
*Embellishments:  Michael's Bridal Flowers; Kaiser Pearls
*Challenges:  Mojo124


I love this colour combination!  I love how the colours work together...  and I love that the main focus of the card is white with the pops of colour.

Sometimes I have a hard time playing with the Mojo Sketches, but in the end, I always have fun playing with them.  Some of them just take a little more time to tweak!  Sometimes I wish I had more stamps to fit the different sizes and shapes of the sketches I'm playing with....

When you think about how long I've been stamping, I have a surprisingly few stamps.  I've never been one to hold on to stamps I never use... we maybe a bit now....  I'd rather sell the stuff I never use to buy new stuff LOL!

Like last Friday...  I finally had a bite on the Cricut Expression and cartridges I was trying to sell on Kijjiji...  it took a few weeks but someone was interested in paying the full price I was asking!  I wasn't using it... might as well go to a happy home where it will be used and loved.... and I have money in my pocket to buy new stuff for me!

Anyway... I've been procrastinating for days.  I want to craft but have done nothing!!  I think it's time to play with this week's Mojo sketch as well as Tracy's Christmas Challenge (see Tracy's blog, listed on the right with the CalGals)

I like the color combo as well. Would make a nice combo for a scrap page which is where my head is as I am going to crop 4 kids on Saturday. BTW, you are a young Mom by the time Hailey is a teenager I will be 46 and my when she is 20 I will be my Mom's current age ..... so in comparison to you .... .when I have a teenager I will be old!
