I needed a deadline

I have been a bit mojo-less the last few weeks. I had my Halloween cards made early and didn't post them until after they'd been mailed and received.  So for two weeks I haven't done much.  I have had a few crafty get togethers, but I am not getting cards done.  I've got stuff started...but nothing finished.

Today while checking in on Facebook, I found I had forgotten a birthday (so not like me) and the man I worked for before retiring recently had surgery and I thought a card might cheer him up.  I am a night owl and consequently my days rarely get going until after noontime.  After I had made lunch for hubs and I, I had about 3 hours to get the cards made and into the mail.

For the first card, I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #422 and it fit perfectly with the theme from Cardz for Guyz Challenge # 95 Hope you feel better soon .

 




The tall wheat stamp is from Hero arts, the feel better is from Close to my Heart.  The pale woodgrain papers are a gift from blogging friend Michele (thank you!!). The sentiment is heat embossed on vellum and layed on top of a same sized circle of the wood grain. They as well as the grasses panel are popped up with dimensionals.




Next up the Belated Birthday Card:
I love this set by mama elephant, its called unforgettable.  The sentiment reads "you are absolutely unforgettable, it's your birthday that's hard to remember". Well thanks to my faulty memory, I was able to use it for the perfect card.  The image was colored with copics.  The little party had was masked and the balloon is popped up and glittered with some wos. Some enamel dots and a little enamel heart and this one was done.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love them both. And yeah, that deadline sure kicks things into gear, eh?

    Every time I read "popped up" my brain reads "hopped up". I am so easily amused.
