Perk Up!!


Here is my Mojo Monday card : ) I am not really sure what Mojo means....maybe I don't want to know LOL! but maybe it is like a big cup of old fashioned percolated coffee! : ) I just love this little gal : ) We used to have percolator like this... ok, well not exactly like this! ours didn't have legs *wink*. The image is from a set by Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps called "Coffee & Tea" there are some really sweet old fashioned images in this set. I am having fun playing with it.

My pink paper is a two-sided paper by WorldWin. The dark pink is on one side and the light pink on the other so when I scalloped the bottom edge it made a nice layered look. I used Cuttlebug "Bloom Dots" as my embossing folder and "lifted" the idea of placing pink circles inside some selected flowers from my friend Cheryl Hellem. Cheryl did this technique on a card she made for a swap I hosted and I love the look! I highlighted the percolator with my Stardust glitter Gel Pen by Sakura. The rest of the supplies I used were simply scraps from my bin. I'm working hard to use up my scraps these days!!

LOVED this sketch : ) Thank you so much for the inspiration. I hope you like my card - I do, it makes me smile. I plan to send it to my SIL, Joan. I hope it "perks her up too!
Have a great weekend!!

This is so cute, Patti! I love the colors you used and that little coffee pot is too cute. BTW - Mojo is just a funky, hip word that more or less means "inspiration." So now ya know. :)

Its funny you mentioned the meaning of Mojo, as earlier today I happened to look it up... charm or magic spell is what I came up with for what it's worth! Love your site, and thanks for visiting mine;-) This card is very cute - I'm sure it will cheer up the SIL, how could it not~

Patti I stumbled onto these stamps last month and thought they were just the cutest ever! I have them on my wish list to purchase one day. After seeing your card I want them even more now. Your card is so cute!
