Mojo Monday #36

I really love Julee's Mojo Monday Sketches on her blog, Poetic Artistry. Having a sketch to work from makes me try different layouts and I find I end up loving them and then using them again for other cards! Sketches are great when you have a creative block... you can just start laying out the cardstock and half the work is done for you! I always thought I'd feel "trapped" by a sketch, since I would have to lay it out a certain way. Amazingly enough, I find it quite the opposite--I feel free to think differently than I would on my own, since I tend to be "safe." (sticking with what I know.) This was her sketch this week:

Here is what I whipped up during the baby's nap. (I hear him now, so I will have to go get him after I publish this post!) I think this card is so bright and Spring-y!!! (Is that a word?) I used Almost Amethyst, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and Apricot Appeal, along with a retired stamp set, Happy Harmony, which I *think* was from last year's Sale-a-bration.

I'll be back with more later, hopefully even today! Have a marvelous Monday!

Jessica I’m sooo jealous I love SU products, but only recently found someone to order for me... then had to buy from the US as every one I contacted in the UK didn't reply...I'm really looking forward to my first order arriving in May. I love the Colours you've used on your card and it's instantly recognisable as SU, and yes I think it looks "spring-y" to... I loooove the stamp you used... Tina
