Color Throwdown #249

Time for a little Color Throwdown action.  I went there looking for inspiration at the end of last week.  While masculine cards are super hard, I find masculine cards for 14 year-olds even more difficult.  At least the Color Throdown gave me a fighting chance by picking out my color pallet for me. :)  Between the fairly patriotic colors (I think Poppy Parade & Bermuda Bay are off just enough to keep things interesting) and the different textures, this one is going to work out just fine.  Now I just need to pop it in the mail.  Why is it I never seem able to get birthday cards off on time???

Mojo Monday 300/ Many Mojo

It's hard to believe that the ladies over at Mojo Monday are already on their 300th sketch.  What a huge accomplishment!  I so enjoy playing along, and it's always a great way to get my creative juices flowing.  Right now, I'm working on a bunch of masculine cards for my class at the end of the month and it's great to have a starting place.  So, I took the sketch and added a little bit of a manly flare.  My sentiments are courtesy of one of my Paper Pumpkin kits.  They are so much fun!  I get a new box every month with a surprise project and the stamps to go with it.  It's great fun to create the projects, but even more fun to then use the supplies on new projects.  You too can join in the monthly fun.  Just visit and follow the easy steps to set up your own monthly crafting escape.  List me as your demonstrator and join my paper pumpkin patch!
