Celebrate - Mojo Monday #195

I wanted to play along with this week's Mojo Monday sketch #195, so I started this card 3 days ago and got it finished yesterday.  Funny how time restraints draw it out like that.  Plus we only have dial-up right now, so uploading a single photo to photobucket to do a little editing takes about an hour.  But at least I can access it from home now.  It's temporary, until we can get our wireless hooked up.  It's on a list of many things that need to be done.  If Lee wasn't working 5 days a week, a lot more could be done around here...  ;)

Anyways, this week's sketch is by fellow CTMH Consultant, Debbie Carriere.  So of course I had to play along!  Great sketch, Debbie!

I finally pulled out my unused cupcake punch (SU) and paired it with some more leftovers from the You & Me kit.  They just work together so well, don't ya think?  Yum-my!

I added Liquid Glass, sprinkled with Prisma Glitter while it was still wet, to the balloons, the brads, and added little dots to the cupcake top.  And just Liquid Glass to the cherry (no glitter).

I've been using my paper crimper lately.  It adds the right touch sometimes.  Just a little texture without pattern.


I found out yesterday that I was one of the winners for last week's Mojo contest for the card below... I'm beyond excited! Yahoo! :D


Be sure to come back tomorrow.  I have a beautiful card ready to post.  You don't want to miss it!  (if I say so myself!)

Until then, happy creating!  :)
