In Everything Give Thanks

Abundant Blessings_Nov 2009

Here’s my take on Mojo Monday #111. What the camera failed to capture is the sparkle and much of the dimension.

To make my flower, I stamped the three flowers from Verve Stamps’ Abundant Blessings with Twilight ink on Colonial White cardstock that had been colored with ink from my Twilight pad using a round sponge. Then, I cut the flowers out and “painted” them with Diamond Stickles. When they were dry, I put the flower together with 3M foam mounting tape. The sentiment was stamp on Colonial White cardstock embossed with a rectangular Nestabilities die. I added a little Stickles to the punched branches as well.

Usually, when there’s a contest on the Mojo Monday blog, my mojo disappears – a psychological thing, I think. This week, however, I’m happy enough with my card and love the color combination.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Chocolate cardstock; K&Company ancestry.com Designer Mat Pad; Twilight and Chocolate ink pads; Verve Stamps Abundant Blessings stamp set and Thessalonians 5:17-18 Plain Jane stamp; Hero Arts pearl accent; Antiqued Copper mini brads; Diamond Stickles; Martha Stewart Branch punch; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Rectangles set; 3M foam mounting tape.

Happy Hump Day, friends! Another week is flying by, and I’m still having a hard time absorbing the fact it’s November already. No, enough chit-chat. I’m off to the bowling alley to show off my athletic prowess. That was a joke. It’ll be fun anyway. Hope you enjoy the evening, too! Later …

Such a lovely card! You can always play with the bumpers in, lol. :)

I always fight with the person to let me bowl with the 6 lb ball, since it's a kids ball and not an adult one.

Beautiful card!!
Hope you had a great time bowling, I too like to use a kids ball, easier to throw, and noone gets hurt. LOL

Lovely card! I know what you mean about photographing stickles!

I'm with Sparkle - the last time I bowled, it was with the bumpers in - I LIKE that!

Absolutely beautiful card, Kathi. Wonderful color combo and I can just imagine how sparkly it is.

When I bowled, my teammates liked me there purely for my handicap! Hope you had a great time!

Absolutely ADORE this card! It came together so well with the color combination, papers and what a perfect sentiment! It's not all that often when a sentiment can carry a card, but this one definitely does! Congrats!
