June Christmas Card Challenge

Sylvia Durocher's monthly Christmas Card Challenge for June calls for triangle(s) and the colour green. I started out with piecing together a background of mostly triangles from assorted papers.

I used this graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet designer paper as the focal point because the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge Blog is looking for nutcracker or toy soldier-themed cards.

The envelope for this large (8 X 5.25 inches) card is a red "Aura" A-9 Euro Pointed Flap Envelope from www.paper-garden.ca. I added a label from the same pad of designer paper so the address will be readable going through the post. One more Christmas card made. I even finished the inside so it is truly ready to use come December.

Farewell, Mojo Monday

It is the last of the weekly Mojo Monday sketches. Sad to see this wonderful resource retire, but needs must. I wanted to play along and with Father's Day tomorrow, it seemed a good idea to combine both.

Here is the sketch. I went horizontal with it.

Sentiment: Digital File from Designer Digitals

I have this neat stamp from the now-defunct Waltzingmouse Stamp company that is nice for commemorating an occasion. Would be good for scrapbooking, too. Decided to mark the date of this Father's Day and placed it under an epoxy circle.


I hope the Mojo Monday sketches stay up on the Internet as a resource. Nice to draw on when stuck for inspiration!
