Where oh Where has my Mojo Gone. Oh Where oh Where Can She Be?

Happy Friday everyone!

Wow, I can't believe the weekend is already here! Completely amazing! I have a very fun but kind of rushed day ahead of me. Izzy and I are meeting her friend Lucy at the Carousel at the mall and then we are all going to have Lunch together. Today is actually Lucy's second birthday so it should be a lot of fun! Then it is back home for Mommy to pack for our trip this weekend. We are leaving tonight to go to Jason's Grandmother's 90th birthday party! I just can't believe she is 90. She still looks so young and gets around so well! I can hardly wait to see her. The good thing is that we will only be gone until Sunday so it will be a quick but fun weekend.

Well, Izzy and I had a great day yesterday. We played a whole bunch. Read stories and overall just hung out together. Izzy colored some pretty little pictures and carried around her Valentine's Day cards she got from her grandparents. And of course yesterday was one fun filled day of tormenting Tuxy. I guess she figured that since they didn't get to see much of each other on Wednesday she had to make up for it yesterday! Poor, poor Tuxy! He was chased, patted, and basically tormented the whole day. In fact in the afternoon, I was on the phone with my friend Heather when I looked over and saw her chasing Tuxy with her pink phone saying, "Tuxy phone, Tuxy phone!" Needless to say Tuxy was being a snob and wasn't taking any calls yesterday! So here is a picture! Sorry it isn't a great one, but they were moving so fast I couldn't catch them! LOL!

So as I stated in my title, my mojo is completely gone. Don't know what happened to it! I have been tired this week, so I am really hoping that if I can get to bed early and sleep in a little bit that my mojo will be back! Please cross your fingers!!! And since my mojo has completely disappeared, I only have one small project to share today! I know, I know! See completely gone!

Since it is coming upon the season of Wedding Anniversaries (all of our friends and family got married in the Spring and early Summer) I wanted to get a jump start on my cards! Of course I am loving the new Goin' To The Chapel Set from Storage Units, Ink and More. The images are such a nice mixture of traditional and elegant as well as cute and fun! The perfect set for any wedding or anniversary! Anywhoo, I decided to create a nice romantic anniversary card using this week's Sketch Challenge out on Split Coast.

See what I mean?! You don't just have to make cutesy cards with this set! It is ideal for elegant creations as well! So I started this card by stamping the wedding cake from Goin' To The Chapel from SUINK on white card stock and colored it in using my copics and a glitter pen. Following the sketch, I layered on white and ivory Core'dinations card stock along with some Basic Grey DP. For the circles, I cut them out with my nesties and then ran them through my Birds and Swirls embossing folder. To finish the card off, I added some ivory ribbon, tied two bows on each side of my image and added some pearls to the top of the card. I really think it will make a very nice little anniversary card.

Well, I am off! Need to hopefully get packed before Izzy gets up! Oh, oh, oh!!! Don't forget tomorrow starts the first day of the Pink Cat Sneak Peeks!!! I am so excited to show you what I have and even more excited to see the other DT creations!!! I am sure they will be incredible!!!! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! Smiles!

Well if your mojo is gone, I can imagine what it would be like if you had it!! Not bad for someone with no mojo. Your card is GORGEOUS!! That cake looks yummy and I love the CB embossed background!! Love the layout and colors too!

When I chase my cat around, she sometimes give me that snobby "what are you doing?" look too! LOL!! Tuxy must think Izzy is amusing! I sometimes wonder what animals thinks about humans! LOL!

Hope you have fun weekend with you DH's grandmother. Happy Birthday to her!! Wow, 90. . that's awesome!

What a sweet card!

Mariska said...

Hi sweetie, first let me tell you that I love your card. Love the soft pretty colours. And as for the mojo... I know what you mean sweetie. I'm having some family problems and that has completely taken the air out of my wings, that's also the reason I haven't been round much the last weeks and I've missed two SS's. I hope both our mojo's will be back in no time... we've got some crafting to do with the March stamps right :). Can't wait to see what you have come up with with the fairies. Your blog is empty though when I go to your mainpage... I'll be back later today to check.
