Mojo Monday #336

I have a card to share with you today that follows the sketch this week at 
A while back I bought the DCWV Chalkboard stack, I love the chalkboard look with fonts on it. 
So finally I used some of it to create this card.
 I used my Cameo and white gel pen to write the birthday wishes on a piece of the red chalkboard paper.  It has a very rough feel to it much like a chalkboard.  I then triple cut layers around it.
The houndstooth background paper is from the DCWV Natural stack, then I embossed the red with my houndstooth folder.  I added some velvet like ribbon and a CTMH embellishment.
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful day.

Southwestern Kokopelli

Hello visitors.
Living in the Southwest I love to create southwestern themed cards.
This card will work very well for a male card, you know the ones that are sometimes are to make.
I stamped the 2 Kokopellis and the cactus and heat embossed them with copper embossing powder. I distressed the edges around the stamped images. I also stamped and embossed the happy birthday. The background paper is a single sheet from Paper Pizzaz.
I will link this card up to the Sentimental Sundays challenge this week, which is to make a male/boy card, which is great because I am trying to build up my male card stash.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Play Ball!.........

Hello everyone!  Are you ready for Spring to start, or in our house we look forward to the baseball season starting.
Here is Arizona it has been unusually hot this Winter it has been in the upper 70s or 80s.
My husband really likes baseball (I do too)and his birthday in April 2nd which sometimes falls on opening day.  So here is a card I made a while back to give him, but had never posted it.
I cut the background pattern, baseball and the chevrons using the CTMH Artbooking cartridge.  The happy birthday is stamped using a Sweet & Sassy stamp.
Then I found another baseball card idea on Pinterest that I liked so I started to make that for him but it is not done yet so I will share that in another post.
This week at Sentimental Sundays the challenge is to make a male/boy card so i will be linking this card to that challenge.
