Do you have a month that is THE birthday/anniversary/special occasion month? We have a couple of those in our family: April, July, and August.
There was actually one summer day when I had spent so much time looking at cards in Hallmark that the clerk asked if I needed help.
So, I decided to save time and money by making my own cards. LOL
Mojo Monday #438
Today, I have a card inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch. It is a card for one of our April occasions... in this case, a birthday card for my brother.
As you will see, I rotated the sketch to make a horizontal card. Other than that, I stayed pretty close to the sketch -- using a banner in place of the sketch's flower element. I'm happy to report that I this card resembles the sketch much, much more closely than my previous Mojo card resembled its sketch.
Honestly, I'm not quite sure how I feel about this card. It feels a little busier than my typical creations. Guess all that matters is my brother likes it. :)
There are so many great challenges to play. Before I sign off, I want to mention three challenges that are near and dear to my heart. Spring Color 4 Kids debuted Saturday over at Send a Smile 4 Kids, and Beautiful Butterflies went live over at Cards in Envy on Monday. You have two weeks to play along with both of these challenges.
And, today's Words 2 Craft By day -- and there are gift certificates to Simon Says Stamp up for grabs over at W2CB. W2CB challenges start on the second Wednesday of each month and run through the first Wednesday of the following month.
Why did I think this was going to be a quick post? Silly, silly me.
Looks like it's time for me to sign off, thank you for stopping, and wish you happy craftin'!
