Yes I know this is not Monday ...but yesterday was MOjo MOnday and I am behind....
so without further so sorry I am late ...here are my takes on the card layout...

Brown tones ...
blues ...tones
now most of the paper used in these cards are from Micheals...the different scallops on the cards are Martha Stewart...punches. The middle in the blue is a earring ...the flower in the brown are these packages of different colored flower petals you put together from the dollar store. Now I know every one has beat me up posting their cards so please check them out ...some awesome talented ladies ...
and you can always check out the Mojo blog ....
now this card has nothing to do with Mojo ..it was just a Hi card to a sweet little person.

Now on Sunday I got to spend sometime with Abi , Hannah and Ethan ..they had so much fun drawing pictures together ...Ethan can say their names so good...and he loves to follow Hannah all over. they are a great bunch of kids.

Yes ..things are starting to grow and turn green ...Spring please hurray up...

Make sure you check out my SIL Neti's blog she has some awesome pictures up ..beautiful mountain in the background ..looks like an awesome place to camp ....hint...hint.

Yes Mojo Monday...and here I am trying to get a card done...well here is my first attempt ...not really happy with it ..was trying to achieve something different..but just could not get it ..I will try again tomorrow...but I did want to get a card up for the Monday ...even if it is 10:45 p.m.

I tried cutting out one of the butterflies to see if it would help make the card look better. Wow it is just pouring out right now...makes you think of being camping...
Nite all...
Oh yes make sure you stop by my SIL's
they always have something awesome to share.....



Happy Valentine's Day..

Now this layout was using my SIL Barb's new kit called

I wanted to give the Mojo Monday card one more try but with a differents ...what do you think...
to get this circle scallop I had purchased a Fiskars punch so it makes the circle design ....( not that happy with it ...sometimes does not cut the paper )
I then try to cut out the flowers so they would be like the bottom layer of the other flowers ...all the papers used were from Michaels...well I hope you like it ...just had to try .

A quick card I made for our grandaughter Hannah she is always sending little letters so I wanted to do some thing special for her ...who you like it girl...love ya..

I got to babysit Ethan today ...mom was at work and dad had a dentist appointment...so Ethan came to our house for a while...we even got to have lunch together. It was awesome.
This little activity center used to be the girls and Patty give it to us for Ethan to enjoy ...and he does... he has his books and cars anything he figures he needs to play.

He is so enjoying the fact he can draw on the chalk board ....and he does clean up so he can keep right on drawing....I tried to video ...but my battery was dieing ...he had a story with each line he put on the chalk board. Thanks for hanging out Ethan....

Last night ..a couple of friends and I went to a tea and coffee ...
This ladies meeting is an out reach to society's ...like Elizabeth Fry ....
battered women...young girls needing help with things like drugs to being pregnant.
The wonderful dessert served ...yummieee...had to bring my home for my Bare...he loved it
It was an awesome night ..there were about 67 women...next meeting ...they have all asked us to go through our closet and see if we have shoes that are in ok condition ..but we never seem to wear them....this winter the Elizabeth Fry society had women coming to them asking for shoes...boots anything ....the Elizabeth Fry society has what they call the closet ...where they collect things a for free you can get clothing or if you have a need they will try to find it for you.
Also at this next meeting they want us girls to be creative and dress a pair of shoes up
and the deal is must wear them and show them off the winner gets a nice basket of goodies. Now This where I know I have 3 very crafty SIL ...Barb..Nina...Neti any ideas.
make sure you stop by all these girls blogs they have so much to share....
Also Valinda ..if you have some ideas let me know...this next meeting is March 8th
Have a great day.
