Merry Mojo

It's Monday and what I enjoy most about the day is playing MojoMonday. I've got a strange addiction to this challenge. Probably because it's my very first blog challenge. But most likely because it offers a most welcome distraction to my Monday mayhem...any excuse to get crafty.

Of course copious amounts of caffeine is keeping my peppy today, but also I have decided, at last, to abandon my inner-shaman and seek proper medical counsel. After a weekend of antibiotics and some surprisingly delicious potions, I can breathe again. Sadly, today I smell rain! Urgh! When will it end, I ask ya?!

Ok, enough about the weather, let me sow you what I made. As expected, the sketch is from MojoModay #265... I'm unashamedly Square this week. The colours are from CR84FN#66  and design inspiration from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Oct Embellishment Challenge #10 "Die-cuts / Punched Pieces".

And my card looks like this:

Just one piece of patterned paper from Papermania's Liquorice & Sherbert pad - wintery twigs in gray.
I made a window card and stamped the sentiment on the inside.
For the frames I used Nellie Snellen's Multi-Frame Dies "Square Stitching".
A nice big sheer cream bow completes the show. It's actually quite simple card... but I won't go so far as to call it CAS! (*nudge**wink*  Sandie)

Here's the sentiment that I stamped on the inside. Its from WMS "Seasons of Love - Tags" stamped in Memento "London Fog", which, looking out my window, should be renamed "Lisbon Fog". And oh, before I forget, 2 gray pearls  on the flourishes.

So there you have it - my simple non-traditional Christmas card. Thanks for dropping in. Have a great Monday, stay warm and dry and I'll see you soon!
