Mojo Monday Challenge 79



Needed to get the mojo going, and what better way to start by using a sketch from Mojo Monday. This is a card I needed to get in the post today for an old school friend who is 40 next Tuesday. She was born the day after me and our mothers became friends whilst in hospital together. We didnt go to primary school but ended up in the same form at high school. We send christmas cards to each other but I havent seen her for years. Ok lets get on to the card. The sketch is using this weeks challenge sketch. I really enjoyed using this sketch, very easy to put together. The pink paper is some that I had in my stash (cant remember where its from), also the card stock is just plain cardstock. The teabag papers are from Circle of Crafters free ones, you can print them in various sizes and I printed the smallest ones. My printer is running out of colour ink so they are bit paler than they should be. I used the xing fold (really easy). The punched edge is done using a fiskars punch that my friend lent me. It took me ages to do it, because I havent used one before. I used the swiss dots folder to embossed the green panel. The brads are from papermania, ribbon also out of my stash and the magnolia stamp is one that I bought recently at the NEC. I havent a clue what she is called (perhaps someone could tell me?) Anyway thank you for looking. I really enjoyed making this card.
