Easy Events Mojo Monday Sketch

I have never done the Mojo Monday sketch.  Well, not knowingly anyway.  I'm sure I've seen some of the sketches and copied them because I like the way they were laid out on the card.  This is the first time I thought I would play along with them. Why now?  Well, I REALLY liked this layout and I wanted to work on a masculine card that was just pretty enough but yet could pass for masculine!  I think I did it!

I had some paper left over from the "Well Worn" decorative paper I had printed out. As it was sitting next to my paper cutter waiting for me to put it away I kept thinking how masculine this paper did look and how fun it would be to make a masculine card with it.  Well, it was fun and it does look great as a masculine card.

As I was finishing this up I realized I have no ribbons in the Pacific Point color!  I just looked in the catalog because I was going to write myself a note (before I forgot) and I have no Pacific Point ribbons because there aren't any!   Bummer.  I guess I will have to dye some white ribbons so I have the color I want when I need it.  The closest thing I could come up with was some 1/4" More Mustard (retired) grosgrain ribbon.  But that's ok, for you seasoned stampers who only use current products you should know how to add the colors you need to make the whole card current.

Anyway, I got to play with the new "Easy Events" set.  It's a fun set and I can't wait to play with it some more.  I think I will challenge myself to make a card or something using this set until I have done something with all 8 images.  I rarely use all the images in a set.  This one looks like I can do it!  It doesn't have any images that I know I will get stuck on.  So in the next couple of weeks I will be adding a card or something using this set!  That's going to be fun.

Oh and I know I told you I was going to show you the new project I was working on.  Well, I just HAD to do the Mojo Monday sketch so the project got moved into tomorrow.  It will be posted tomorrow, I promise!!!  Thanks for your patience, it will be worth it!

Thank you ever so much for visiting today,
