Mojo 238

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! It's always nice to get Monday over with! Nothing exciting happening this week around here. I found some time to get some stamping done yesterday. Still need to catch up on a few things but then I think I am going to dive into some fabric that came in and start on my first quilt! I am so excited to do one! I will keep you updated on my progress. I am doing a "Fun and Done" quilt. I did square up my fabric yesterday so I will start cutting and getting it ready for sewing! Yea!!

Today's card was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch! What a fantastic sketch they had this week! I love all the squares! I punched 12 squares from Whisper White with the 1 1/4" square punch and then ran them through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Then I rounded opposite corners on each before I adhered them to a piece of Whisper White. I wrapped a piece of Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon around this and popped the panel up onto a Whisper White card base. Then I punched a piece of Whisper White with the 2 1/2" circle punch and stamped the stem from Fabulous Florets in Lucky Limeade. This circle is adhered to a piece of Wisteria Wonder that was cut with the Perfect Pennants die and then this is popped up onto the card. I stamped the flower in Wisteria Wonder onto a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out. This is popped up onto the stem. Then I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes onto a strip of Whisper White, flagged one end and tucked the other behind the flower. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  2. This is so lovely! The opposite rounded corners on your squares make such an impact!

    Have fun making your first quilt!

  3. Such a beautiful, really perfect, card for spring Mother's Day!

  4. Lovely card! How cool to be starting a quilt. I can't wait to see it when you finish. I've always wanted to make a quilt. I used to make all my own clothes, but now that I'm no longer working and don't need the clothes, I'm losing my eyesight and can't see well enough to sew. It's really annoying to now have the time to do things like read, cross stitch, embroider and all those other fun things but not be able to see well enough to do them. Thank goodness I found card making... a hobby I can still enjoy at least for a while.
