Mojo Monday and Trendy Trees

I have no excuse really. Other than feeling crummy. And getting two, count them one.. two, huge boxes of Stampin Up goodies in the mail last week. The first was my starter kit. Yes, I have become a Stampin Up demo. My UPS driver asked if all of the boxes from this company would be as heavy as this one. I told him I really hoped so. Not the answer he was looking for.

The second box of goodies was my first order as a demo, so the goodies were not all mine but I got my fair share from that box as well. So between lack of energy from being sick and new stamps, blogging really took a back seat. But I'm back tonight and I even have a card. A card I really kind of like.

This card uses the Mojo Monday sketch for this week. LOVED IT! I used Trendy Trees for this one. This might just be my favorite set that I got out of both boxes last week. Well this set and Cheep Talk are tied actually.

So I stamped my 3 little trees onto Papertrey Ink Stampers Select white card stock, using Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the tree trunks stamped with Close to Cocoa. I tore a post it note for the hill and masked the lower tree then spritzed Mellow Moss to make the grass. I used the fine tip of the pen to add a few darker areas to really show off the hills.

A little Bashful Blue was sponged around the top edge and trees to make a little sky. This scene was mounted onto Bashful Blue and then onto chocolate chip with 3-D dots. That was all mounted to a piece of Always Artichoke and tied with a litle Mellow Moss ribbon.

I ran some Bashful Blue through my cuttlebug using the Forest Branches embossing folder and off centered those pieces onto some chocolate chip. The leafy tree top was stamped with Versa Mark onto the Mellow Moss card base. The same tree was stamped onto a circle of Stampers Select and the "thanks so much" sentiment was stamped over it with Chocolate Chip.

So there it is. Now if I can get myself blogging again before 10 more days have past I will be doing good. Thanks for checking in.

thanks for visiting my blog. I'm always happy to hear from fellow GH fans!! I haven't seen today's episode yet, so I'm not sure what happened to Spinelli. I would be very surprised if they killed him; but it would be interesting to see how it would affect Jason, wouldn't it! Since the fire is essentially "over" it's hard to say who else will die. I post a GH column each Friday...be sure to come back!
