A card and a good-bye


It's been awhile since I've had two posts in a day.   I had hoped to have this card done sooner, but life got in the way.  :/

Mojo Monday #500 is the final challenge over there.  I'm sad to see them go!

I started my blog in Jan '11, and the very first challenge I ever entered was Mojo Monday 173!!!   (You can see that card here)  My participation in the challenge has been on and off since then, but I have often gone to the blog to find inspiration from their past sketches when I'm stuck.

So a huge THANK YOU to the design team of MM, and I wish you all the best!!!   Julee is saying good-bye to spend more time with her family while her kids are young.  That is a decision I wholeheartedly support!!  They grow so quickly! 

Here's my "last hurrah"...


The sentiment is a rubber stamp that I've removed from the wood to make it a cling stamp, and I don't remember who made it.  I used Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder.  My paper is Slice silver and Heidi Swapp printed vellum.  My EF is Darice Diamond Plate.  The sentiment is cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.

I put all that together based on MM's last sketch...



Challenges...
Mojo Monday 500 - sketch
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -  make it masculine
Word Art Wednesday #286-287 - anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown #347 - for the men


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

I'd pick you - TMS #407


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  I'll get right to my card...

 
For my card, I used Crate Paper Farmhouse DP, Spellbinders Standard Circles, Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles, Spellbinders Doodle Parts, MHK Designs Blossoming digital stamps, and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers.

This week, Tuesday Morning Sketches is sponsoring again with these 2 wonderful dies as the prize...
