*Found A Little Mojo*

Happy Friday everyone!! I'm looking forward to no alarm clock in the morning! It's not that I want to sleep really late, it's just that I want to get up when I want to get up. I have a hate relationship with my alarm clock. I look forward to the time in my life when the alarm clock goes off only once in a while.

The only time I don't hate my alarm clock is when it wakes me up for an early flight to go on vacation!

And even then, I still don't like it!

I finally got around to playing a little yesterday...

I'm sure I'm not alone... I come down to my craft space and get sidetracked by TV and computer. And when I finally around to wanting to craft, I simply sit here thinking about it and I do nothing.

I have the supplies... it's not like I don't have stuff to play with. I have some ideas I want to play with. I want to craft.

But I sit here and do nothing.

And then I turn the TV back on and go back to blog surfing or Facebook or playing games on Pogo.

It's like I'm putting it off and I don't know why!

So I was thrilled (thrilled) to create two cards yesterday! One will be added to the regular rotation, and from the title of the post I'm sure you know that the one I am posting today is this weeks MojoMonday Sketch (mojo105)

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky
*Images: Lizzie Anne Say It In Script
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip
*Tools: Big Shot; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Stampin' Up! circle punches
*Embellishments: Robins Nest Dew Drops; brown satin ribbon

It's hard to tell in the photo but the colour combination isn't white and brown. I guess it was a bit too sunny in my corner of the world for good photos.

It took a lot of staring at the sketch to decide what I wanted to do, but I am pleased with the results (after I ripped it all apart and added a soft sky piece that had been sent through the Big Shot with the Swiss Dots folder -- without the dots, it was totally blah. I am amazed at what those little dots did for the card)

Thanks again for stopping by..... enjoy your Friday!

Hi Nancy,

Great card! If you figure out a way to craft instead of watching tv and playing on the computer, let me know, I have the same problem!!
