Go figure that I enter the very last time Mojo Monday occurs!
That said, the sketch was a good one:
So, seeing some of the designs that came in did help, but I wanted something a bit different. I love Verve Stamps and I wanted to convey a "happy trails" kind of theme without being too sappy (I am a bit of a sap, but don't ruin my rep!).
I came up with this:
The paper came from Illustrated Fairh, the ribbon came from Hobby Lobby, and the sentiment is from Verve's New Mercies set. I also figured out the two-finger bow method that Gina K. uses on her cards. Yay!
As a newer card maker, this was a push in the right direction; I like being challenged and I liked this result. :)
Today, I'm bringing just one card out of twelve that I made for a charity to give out to kiddos who are sick and in hospital. Many of these youngins are fighting cancer and other diseases that are life-threatening; what tends to cheer up a kiddo is a bright and cheerful card!
I did have a helpful Bee to help with me; for my little one, color is always better. :D
That said, here is my "just because":
The cards were made from standard-sized A2 (4.25" x 5.5") and are a mix of top-folding and side-folding (with some as landscape). Bee was able to help put some of the parts together, while Mama taped/glued/stuck them together (We made a pretty good team, actually!).
