Cute Mojo Monday

Monday, 20 July 2009
I was dreaming about cards last night and so wished I could've stayed at home to make them but, alas, work called! However, once home I was straight in my craft room and whipped up this cutie! I recently purchased the exclusive Forever Friends stamps from The Glitter Pot and they are just gorgeous so had to ink one up. After my comment yesterday about not starting my Christmas cards, I knew which one I would use first.

This card fits the Cute Card Thursday challenge - Xmas in July and I've used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch.
Supplies
Stamps: Santa - Forever Friends, Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
CS & DP: Papermania, SU! Whisper White & Doodlebug,
Tools: Circle & Pinking Nestabilites;
Embellishments: Ho! Ho! Ho! ribbon - Papermania

I left the bow off the card as it hid the ribbon which I thought suited the image and I didn't think it was right on a Christmas card. In hindsight I guess I could've cut out a snowflake to put in it's place. I hope it's still acceptable for the sketch challenged

Hopefully this is the first of many Christmas cards now! I'm off to finish my book now, not many pages left. I'm reading The Kite Runner and would recommend to any of you out there that have not read it. It's a very powerful and emotional read.

I hope you are all enjoying the rest of your evening and thank you for stopping by. Any comments you leave are much appreciated.
