Mojo Owl - Oh, Thanks!

Or...alternate working really, where'd you get that?

I did a (VERY) informal poll on my Facebook Page last week regarding the Mojo Monday sketch and how I NEVER get to it on a Monday. The truth of the matter is, I schedule a LOT of my blog posts at least a few days in advance, or in the case of the Fishy Friday series, WEEKS in advance. My informal poll asked "Let's say you could see the Mojo Monday card on an ACTUAL Monday, but had to wait till later in the day - would that be OK? Or do you prefer to visit my blog first thing in the morning?" The response was that it pretty much didn't matter as long you got to see my work.'s Mojo Monday is the one from January 20th, but starting THIS Monday (January 27th), my goal is to get the Mojo Monday card done ON the Monday the sketch is released. This means you'll still get to see my creation, but it'll be later in the day.

With all of that being's card starts off with the same colours/DSP I used yesterday (I create in batches, it was out).

My base is Crumb Cake with a layer of Whisper White and Fresh Prints DSP. Yep! More sponging! I added a layer of Coastal Cabana and more Fresh Prints DSP. Under the Coastal Cabana is a piece of punched and sponged Crumb Cake Cardstock.

For the image panel, I punched out a 2 ½" circle and then stamped the image and sentiment. I know! I always say stamp first punch second, but in this case I wanted to know just how much space I had. It worked out pretty good! To mat my image/sentiment piece, I used my Big Shot and Circle Framelits.

The inside sports a little surprise - RIBBON!!

We always think to put ribbon on the front of our cards, but I thought I'd switch it up a bit and add ribbon to the inside. How fun! What do you think?

INK: Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana
PAPERS: Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana Cardstock; Fresh Prints DSP
