Mojo Monday #67 and more CANDY!

The very first challenge I ever did was one of Julee's Mojo Monday sketch challenges. If you get a chance you should check out her blog - Poetic Artistry - she's just amazing! I love doing challenges now and do them as often as I can. I find that it really pushes me to try new things, to think about things from another perspective. This is Julee's sketch challenge this week and in keeping with the program to get ready for Valentine's day, I thought it would be appropriate to use the new Love You Much bundle and the new Raspberry Tart paper from Stampin' Up! The card base is Pretty in Pink and the contrast color is Elegant Eggplant. I colored the stamp with my markers and I like how it turned out.

In culling comments to print and put into the bowl for Friday's blog candy drawing, I discovered that my blogoversary post was post #300 so today I'm going to add two items into the package of candy to celebrate that milestone. Actually, I'm just looking for good reasons to celebrate and that fit the bill just fine! I'm not averaging a post a day for this first year, but there were some days with more than one and some days with none and it will probably continue that way for the next year too. My schedule is sometimes pretty hectic! At any rate, here's the candy additions for today.

There's a bunch of 6x6 designer paper from folks like Papertrey, 7 Gypsies and Basic Grey and a bottle of yellow-orange daisies from Daisy Doodles.

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you all have a very safe and Happy New Year! DH and I are going to keep with our long-time tradition and just stay home and have crab legs and watch a movie. If it's snowy and cold and it's not a red polution day, we may even have a fire in the fireplace. Haven't used the fireplace much lately between polution days and not wanting to take chances with the grandkids, but I do enjoy having one so we'll see how it goes.

Stay safe and warm!

You are so on top of your game to have already started Valentine's cards. I can't get my head out of the holidays yet. I love the scalloped edge combined with the CB dotted swiss bg on your card.

I have seen alot of cards done with that new set but I think I like yours the best so far. I love that you colored the letters with markers, that makes all the difference. Ever since I got some Copics, my Tombow and Marvy markers have been sadly neglected. Thanks for the reminder to get them out ad use them!

What a sweet card--you did such a great job with coloring each letter, that is always a challenge for me!
I hope you had a good New Year's, although I don't know what "red pollution"--it doesn't sound good!
