Mojo Monday--YAY!

Good afternoon! I have a card and then some chit chat for you today---I made the card already this morning at 7:30, but didn't have any time to post it until now! You know, kids, breakfast, etc., etc.,!This is for this week's Mojo Monday sketch over at And, since this is the first week of the month, it is a prize week! I always try to make super awesome cards, hoping they will pick me and I can get some free stamps! I have a feeling that this one is a winner...:)

My friend from church just had a baby boy on Saturday (her second). Her first child is a girl, and was born 1 day before my first child (also a girl). We've gotten to know each other pretty well, so it was exciting to hear they had their baby (also a boy, just like our second!). There is also going to be some kind of crafty gift to go with the card, I just haven't really decided what yet.

The paper is all Crate Paper Hamptons collection. The circles are a die cut, as is the blue strip underneath the ribbon. I wanted to tie the ribbon in a bow, but didn't have enough! What you see is pretty much what I had!

The onesie, teddy bear, and "I'm here" are from Gina K Designs- Wee Tees. I LOVE this set! I stamped the onesie, cut it out, and then sponged ranger distress ink to give it a little depth. I stamped the bear on the onesie, and then on scratch brown paper. I used my Versamark pen on the scratch paper one, and then heat embossed it with clear ep. It's so shiny and cute! I popped the bear and the onesie up with dimensionals. Good luck to me!!

On a personal note, we found Myron a load this morning for tomorrow to go to York, PA. I'm so happy we got a good load- again, for the second week in a row! I'll just have to dispatch tomorrow but then I'm home free!!
He had some time this morning, so he put up my clothesline. I really miss not having a clothesline, so the crafty, dear husband that he is made me one!! It's really just some scrap pipe and then line we got from Bomgaars, but it's so beautiful!! I can hang clothes out to dry and save money and not heat up the house! Awesome! I'll post a picture when it's fully complete.

Have a happy Monday!
