The rest of the Mojo Turns 100 cards

Hi all! I'm from Canada, with no accent, so I can't say the friendly "y'all." Rats! I've had a busy morning cleaning and stuff and now am sitting down with the final 3 cards for the Mojo Monday turns 100 sketches. I wasn't going to do them all, but you know how it was a challenge! And I thought I should enjoy all these challenges now before work starts up. I will go in each day next week to set up and have a writing workshop next Friday. This first card is dedicated to Maile Belles who has been a total sweetie to me as I learn about blogging and possibly publishing one day. She is also a fellow Papertrey Ink fan. If you haven't checked out her blog, please do so. She is so very talented. I finally got to use some Thickers that I picked up on the girls' road trip 2 weeks ago. I love the colour. They are a perfect match to Berry Sorbet (PTI). This was for Monday's sketch...
This next card is Saturday's sketch. I was looking for a large rectangular image for it and dug out the Season of Friendship tree. I love it and haven't used it since Spring! I blame it on the butterflies and button bouquets! I couldn't believe that I made it look like Fall. I am not a Fall person at all. I'm a Spring and then Summer girl, perhaps because of my career ;) I strive to learn how to love Fall. The little birdie is popped up on dimensionals and that adorable little nest is made from twine wrapper back and forth 4 times, ends cut and then tied in a knot. I saw the idea on a few blogs in the Spring and thought it was over-the-top darling.

Finally, the third card is for the last sketch yesterday. I had lots of pink dp left on my table from Dawn's colour challenge so knew I had to make a pink card (with yellow, Kristina!). I love this Stamping Bella (Lattebella) and have used her many times. She is coloured with various SU ink pads and an aquapen on watercolour paper. Hmmmm. I may need to leave soon and make a latte! I always make sure my new students learn my age, my birthday, about Tony (dh) and Jake (ds), and my Starbucks order :)
Here are the sketches in order of this posting. Thanks so much for dropping by. My new Verve order has arrived so I am off to ink some delicious new stamps :) This will be the only time you hear me say, "I love Monday!" LOL

Another set of lovely cards, Maureen! I adore that sweet card--the pinks & greens are divine together!!!

Stacy said...

Super cute cards!! I just love them all. :)

Maile Belles said...

Maureen, you are too sweet!!! Thank you! I love my card! All three are fabulous but I like mine the most! It has been a pleasure getting to know you I'm very glad to have been of help!

They are all fabulous Maureen. You have such a gift to share with others. The first is very sweet I love the pop of blue in the next, and the use of PTI summer sunrise in the last really complements the brown and pink.

You've been a busy lady, Maureen! Wow, great set of cards!! Love the felt letters on the first one, as well as the fun DP. I recently got that tree stamp and haven't inked it up yet -- hanging my head in shame. I blame it on summer with very limited mommy time lol.
Great colour combo and the circular saying is perfect (just got that set and can't wait to use it!). The DP on the third sketch is fabulous as is your colouring of the Bella. You have me wanting a Latte now LOL!

Looking forward to seeing what you create with you new Verve!

Fantastic trio of cards, Maureen - you've really outdone yourself. Your cards are always so perfectly coordinated and these are prime examples. I love the three different nesties on your SWEET card and that ribbon/flower really makes it pop!
You're absolutely right about the nest for that birdie - it's beyond adorable. I'm really amazed by your ability to use the yellow and not have it be overwhelming - the pinks are perfection! Great coloring AND your bow is so rich & decadent. Fabulous!!

How pretty! I love the first one, too cute! Great idea the the little knot for the nest too! :)

Beautiful card. What a bundle of talent! Love what you did with my MOJOMARY sketch. Bella looks so chic. Hugs, Mary
