Here Again!

Hi Everyone!

Wow, it's been quite a while since I've posted, at least it seems like it to me! I'm sorry I've been so sporadic in sharing things with you. Such a busy time with the holidays. I did finally get done with my Christmas cards. Not everyone on my list will be getting a handmade card; but that's just the way it goes. I am happy to be doing something else now. The card I have today is for this week's Mojo Monday. I also combined it with a previous SCS color challenge that I had not done using Old Olive, Bermuda Bay and Pretty in Pink.
I started with a standard size Old Olive card and then added a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Pretty in Pink. Next I added the Bermuda Bay with the strip of pattern paper at the bottom. The 2 Bermuda Bay circles in the background are 2 3/4. I cut 2 more pink circles each measuring 2 1/2. Then I ran those circles through the cuttlebug and embossed them.
The main image is from SU's hostess set "Wings of Friendship." I inked the image with Bermuda Bay ink and then used a Qtip to remove some of the ink and then I went back over those areas with an Old Olive marker and a Pretty in Pink marker. I stamped the image on Pretty in Pink paper and then used foam adhesive to attach it to the card.
The sentiment in the corner is from SU's chitchat rubons. I had a hard time getting it to stay in place, so I had to doctor it a bit with a Chocolate Chip marker.
I already have something done to share with you tomorrow, so I'll definitely be back tomorrow! Next week...who knows! I hope you have a great day and thanks for visiting with me!
