Mojo Monday #351

Mojo Monday #351

Don’t think I have ever done Mojo before. This was fun and here is are the details….

Base: Mossy Meadows CS that beautiful new green from SU
Layer: All Abloom wall paper look ,but really pretty
Banner: Whisper White CS cut very thin
Tag: Blushing Bride DSP shaped with the scallop top punch
Flower: Blushing Bride CS punched with Pansy punch; layered with white cs punched with 1 3/4 scallop circle and another Blushing Bride over stamped with Calypso Coral ink and punched with Petite Petals
Tag is tied with white bakers twine

Turned out pretty . We will see what the folks at Mojo Monday think.

This was a small challenge for me. While the new DSP All Abloom is really pretty ( if you are into wall paper- which I am not) things started coming together then fell apart really fast. Just too much! Here is the fix….

Base: White Card Stock
Layer: #1 Mossy Meadows ( love this green)
#2 All Abloom DSP
Tag: #1 Daffodil Delight and All Abloom
#2 Calypso Coral ( because I don’t have Strawberry Slush) and Daffodil Delight. This is where some of the question came in. Too plain, so I added another layer of DD (because the tag has already been glued down) and embossed it.. ok…better but now the butterfly.

Butterfly: Daffodil Delight CS –Love DD but to much yellow ,so added another smaller die cut stamped with Calypso Coral. Still bad..so ..added a White CS die stamped with Calypso Coral. Much better to my way of thinking any way. Now to jazz it up a bit add Basic pearls so the butterfly has a body and scatter a few here and there to help balance the white peaking out on the base.

Well such is life in my world of crafting and card making.

There is always room for learning and beside this doesn’t have any thing to do with the price of eggs. lol

It not all Cards

Here at Journey End Farm it’s not all cards and stamps and ink and glue and tape. Nope there are flowers for real.Image

The picture turned out really bright but the common day lilies are bright and so pretty even it they are gone by morning.

 I read a nice story ,years ago, in the old Victoria magazine about a lady who raised day lilies. Every evening she would go out

and”pick flower” . She would fill baskets and vases’ and buckets and bowls with every color in the rainbow from her garden . Can’t you just imagine the beauty. Next morning she would just dump them in the compost pile and wait for the evening again. Beautiful way to enjoy Gods creation.

Here is a picture of one of my gifts to Anna Marie on her first birthday.

Butterflies…lots of butterflies and one sweet baby girl growing up way too fast.

There is also a new baby of a different kind but just as important to us farmers.</pNew baby heifer calf>

 

Do have a great weekend…until later. Remember… this is the Lords Day…Rejoice!
