Got My Mojo Workin'

Made a few more cards today. Will get to them after I say thanks to the DT at CASology for the HM for this card. I wasn't going to post it, because I thought I'd missed the deadline, but made it just in the nick of time. So thank you for choosing the little fish card! I'm humbled and honored.

Made more than I'm showing today. You'll see three today, and the last one later in the week. Our daughter and sil were here last week from Phoenix, and for part of their Christmas gift, I give them a box full of the cards I make over the course of the year. She loves getting them, and actually uses them, which delights me to no end. Some of these were made with Jeanne in mind. This first one definitely is. It's going into the As You See It Challenge - sketch and City Crafter - flowers.

And my take:


Crummy photo due to crummy weather (AGAIN!). All these lovely blues are matchy-matchy... The dp is from a Pebbles pad, and the rest are scraps except my Michaels base. Love the way the vellum looks over these blooms. A CB sentiment in ME Smoke ink, some random sequins, and poof!, done.

Since I missed the last Muse deadline, I was bound and determined to make this one with time to spare! And have you seen Michele's card??!!! Only beyond incredible!



Love everything about her card....Mine goes out to the oldest son, elder twin, Tom. Pretty sure you can see where my inspiration came from...


All scraps, I'm happy to say! Used a Silhouette cut file to cut everything. The frame is inset around the plaid and the letters set on top. The PTI stamps are from my NBUS set, and I added some HS enamel stars. Didn't like the 'breathy' look of the stamp at first. The cardstock is quite textured. But after a minute, I noticed it mirrors the 'breathy' look of the plaid, so now I do like it. You'd probably have to blow the photo up to see what I mean. 

Last card for today goes to a sweet friend who needs a little extra love, and I'm playing at Fusion - French Twist. Just went with the sketch this time. But oh.... I love these colors together!




Started with a Michaels white base and gray and yellow scraps (Say....which one is more correct? Gray or Grey?! Don't want to offend any English teachers out there...). Punched out a portion of a circle, then added some TT images inked up in ME Smoke ink. An old scrap of the most perfect silvery-gray ribbon, and a sentiment that you can't see. Kept this one mostly CAS. My eyes and brain like it. 

And so I'll close for now. Thank you all for the nice wishes for my DH. He was getting better, but has now developed a reaction to his antibiotic. Just waiting for the nurse to call me back...He'll be fine. I'm not worried. You are all so sweet, and deserve happy dances forever.

Hi Bev, I love all of your fantastic cards! You made so many and for so many challenges. So much to love but I am drooling over that grey ribbon!

Brenda said...

Wow Bev, all three cards are amazing and so beautiful! How wonderful to give your DD a box full of cards and even more wonderful is that she uses them!! I hate when I give cards and people don't use them cause they say they are to pretty. lol Michelle made a stunner for sure, love those fabulous papers and love your take on her card. Love the yellow and grey color combo too of card three. As always, your cards are fabulous! Hugs, Brenda

Leigh Penner said...

Wonderful cards, Bev! I especially love your take on the Muse Challenge and how you added them alphabet letters to spell out the name! And your Fusion card is so pretty!

Ardyth Percy-Robb said...

My goodness you've been busy (just saw your other post with the giveaway!) - love that rich bow on that card - perfect interpretation.As well as the cut out (just like the neckline) - clever! Also loving the birthday card for Tom - how lucky that he only has 3 letters! So glad you joined us at Muse this week!

Jenni's Jems said...

Heather Cooper said...

These are all beautiful. I love the vellum overlay on the first. It gives such a lacy look to your project. Thanks for sharing your talent with us at As You See It Challenges this week.

My eyes and brains love all three cards, Bev! You've knocked it out of the park with the first; the sketch had me heading for the hills, but you've nailed it, my friend! So pretty! The second: dapper, dashing and personalized! And the third...be still my racing heart! In awe...that's all I can say...in. AWE!
Hugs~c

Bobby said...

Your mojo is working indeed, Bev. What wonderful cards. I love that you could personalize Tom's and that Fusion card is beyond lovely.

Loli said...

I hope you husband is better, Hugs from Palma de Mallorca and blessings for you and your family.

Stella said...

Bev your cards are beautiful and I love your design for our challenge. Fab card!Thanks so much for joining us at CCCB!

Geri said...

Wow! I was totally smitten with card #1...then I saw #2....then I saw #3...you are on fire pal! Talk about bang-on interpretations of each challenge! I love the angles and the gorgeous floral DP on your first card. Tom's card is MAGNIFICENT - especially the somewhat unintentional 'breathy' look of the plaid and the sentiment! Third card - pure, clean & simple elegance! Drooling...as in really drooling over your PERFECTLY shaped bow!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Two fabulous cards - Tom will be so happy getting this beauty and the bow on the second card - swoon!

Anita in France said...

Mojo working, Bev? Erm, yes ... or rather YES! Simply gorgeous soft blues and delicious pattern combining ... it's cool, calm and very stylish! How fun is Tom's card ... and how inspired ... the breathy look is brilliant! Oh my goodness, that chic soft yellow and grey ... it's just beautiful ... what an awesome bow ... sooo elegant! Sorry John's still not good ... happy and healing thoughts heading across the miles to him! Hugs and Bisous, sweet friend, Anita :)

Kylie said...

I always feel like I say the same things when I see your cards but that is because they are always beautiful and inspiring to me! Just love them all. I love that you are now happy with the "breathy" look of the sentiment too as it does mimic the paper so perfectly! hugs!

maria f. said...

Wow - that bow. THAT BOW! Exquisite. Especially paired with those colors and just tied around the half of the card. Wonderful design, Bev. And happy bloggiversary.
