Mojo Monday #331/ Heart Mojo

What's black and white and red all over?  Apparently it's my submission for this week's Mojo Monday sketch. ;)

I find it pretty funny that when I announced class I was clear to say that there wouldn't be any Valentine projects.  Then, I started making a bunch of cards and several of them have turned out looking a whole lot like they are destined for February 14th.  I'm sure they could come in handy at other times too, but they definitely fit the bill for heart day.  And here I thought I didn't have any Valentines in me.

I had a ton of fun putting this one together.  It has fun textures on each of the hearts thanks to my little embosslit die and then a matching texture on the background.  There are way more hearts than are typical for me, but I get a kick out of them.  And I dig the way the bold colors play off of each other to make the whole thing pop.  It's a keeper.  Now I just need to pick which ones we'll make in class. ;) I think having this much selection is a good problem to have.

Color Throwdown #277

And, here's another contender for class next Sunday.  I went over to the Color Throwdown to see what they were up to this week.  As always, they had an excellent color pallet for me to put to use.  This time around it was Regal Rose, Baked Brown Sugar, and Soft Sky.  I didn't know what I wanted to create, but the Regal Rose made me itch to use my new Spiral Flower die.  There's no way this 3D beauty will make it through the mail on its own, but it is perfect to deliver in person or add to a gift box/bag.  I seem to be using a ton of my framelets this month too.  Each card seems to feature at least one if not more!  My guess is it's the ease that my Magnetic Platform gives me in using them now.  I'm afraid they used to collect a lot of dust because it just wasn't as easy to use them as my punches.  The certainty I get when using my Magnetic Platform changed all that though. It's easy as pie!  Ok, time to remember that this Sunday is focused on more than just crafting.  I think there's a football game of some sort I'm supposed to watch. ;)

Class Options for Feb 9th

 I traditionally only post one card at a time, but I find that if I have a whole bunch completed then some never make the light of day.  So, today I decided just to toss them all out at once. :)  Now, I don't have to fret about writing and dating each one and you can get a look at them all.  They are all in the running for class on Sunday Feb 9th along with some others that are still milling about in my head.  Not sure which will make the cut yet, but I'm interested in hear your opinion on the matter.  The cute little Mojo Valentine from Tuesday is a sure thing.  What do you think about the others?
