Four by Four and some Mojo

Hi Everyone!

I hope you have all been enjoying the lovely fall weather wherever you are. It has been very nice here in San Antonio and I am happy to have been able to keep the AC off for a while in the morning. Gotta start saving for Christmas, you know! I have also been working hard on cards, which reminds me I need to start preparing them to mail. I got a whole bunch stacked up all over my craft room. I have also been trying to keep up with the WCMD challenges over at SCS. It is my goal to do all of them. We'll see how it goes!
I really want to get both of these linked up to the right challenges and do a bit of blog hopping, so I am going skip the details for this evening and just list the challenges for them.


Sketch: Mojo Monday
HYCCT: Twine Time. (I wrapped kitchen twine around the ribbon)
Embellishments: Paper Playtime (Ribbons and Buttons)
Misc: Stamps R Us (Nature)

"Thinking of You"

HYCCT: 4x4 (Four papers and Four embellishments)
Color: Paper Players (Monochromatic)
Misc: Wild Orchid (Stitching) I did faux stitching around the two center pieces.

Dori, love both cards! I love the fact that you took a layout and with a couple of changes made them feel like totally different cards.
Wonderfully done.
thanks for joining the Paper Players this week

Great cards. It is amazing what you have done with a monochrome palette.
I have no idea where San Antonio is but I'm glad the weather is nice for you.
Kind regards
