Mojo Monday Week 88

Happy mojo Memorial day to my American crafting friends out there! I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend whatever you did. Mine was pretty busy and today we are cleaning the garage and doing yard work. We do it every Memorial as long as the weather cooperates. I do not enjoy yard work very much and do not have a green thumb. The weather is absolutely perfect here in Buffalo today though- sunny and a high of 69. It is great to do work in, if you have to that is LOL!

So on with the show! Below is my sample along with this week's wonderful sketch from Julee.

I really enjoyed the sketch this week! I mean I like all the sketches but I find some of them more challenging than others-KWIM? This week I did not struggle too much and found the images and papers I wanted to use pretty quickly. I chose these adorable Nana's nursery dps from DCWV and thought they paired perfectly with my Summer Fun and Summer sentiments stamp sets from Sweet N Sassy stamps. They are still on sale for 15% through the end of the month BTW. I first masked off the "berry" part of my stamp with scotch tape so that I could ink up the outer circle in green. Then I stamped my strawberry in the center- stamping off once so that is was a pinky color to match the papers rather than red. Finally I repeated the masking so that I could stamp "berry" in black. I sewed all the layers and chose to "pop" the colors with black.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Summer Fun and Summer sentiments
CS- Paper Temptress ultrasmooth white, gumdrop green poptones, and basis black, Nana's nursery dp
accessories- pop dots, black pearls, circle nesties, sewing machine, paper piercer, PTI new leaf grosgrain ribbon

For some more inspiration and to check out all the info for this week's mojo challenge please visit the Mojo Monday blog. Also, Friday Verve Stamps just released 6 new stamp sets in time for Father's day so be sure to check it out! Julee did a wonderful job with them.

I have my color Monday challenge posted in the Christian Papercrafts Magazine forum and would love to have you play along!

Enjoy your day!!
