got mojo?

at least i sure did yesterday, whilst visiting the Adina-Dollie... i'm also thrilled that we found HER mojo, too! i think it had rolled under a chair in her front room.

quick post, as today we're heading to my inlaws' house for a late birthday celebration for the hubbin. his birthday was tuesday, but we've had a bit of a manic week.

first of all, today begins a new challenge at Cafe Mojo! :) COME AND JOIN US!

the Mavens are pleased to bring you "Fall Fall Fall into the Season!" for this one. i had just a bit TOO much fun with this gorgeous Emma stamp from CC Designs (which i bought from The Town Scrapper, home of Humble Pie Stamps and the Bakers!) i created this autumn scene using a bazillion different elements, paper brands and stamp lines, and i probably could have kept going, except that it was taking WAY TOO LONG! anywho, here's Emma:

i made this card with a few challenges in mind as well...

Simon Says Stamp - "give thanks"
Pile it On - thank you card - ACTUALLY, the new challenge they posted is FALL WITH LEAVES, for which this does qualify. yay!
Sophisticats - buttons and ribbons (i've always wanted to make a button tree!)
Allsorts - bling! (although i admit i want to make another blingy card for this one, with shimmer/glitz overload!)
There She Goes - cause a scene!
Kaboodle Doodles - fall inspired
Crafty Cardmakers - stamp something!
Creative Card Crew - ribbons and gems

this morning i finished up a card that i'd started friday night...

this one was the ORIGINAL card intended for the following:
Simon Says Stamp - "give thanks"
Pile it On - thank you card

and for these two - i loved the sketch they provided:
The Fresh Batch - sketch challenge
Our Creative Corner - sketch challenge

plus for the BasicGrey Challenges - photo inspiration

dunno if i'm going to have time to finish my last card from last night, as we have lots to do today, but it's one you're not going to be seeing for a couple of weeks anyway. they're samples for the Design Dollies.

stay tuned, folks! exciting things going on! hope you're all having a fantastic weekend!
