Mojo Monday #109 & A Bit of News

I know I've been missing in action for almost a week. I've been in a bit of a creative rut that I'm trying to climb out of. There's been way too much sadness and stress going on here and that is a sure fire way to make your creative mojo pack up and hit the road. In the hopes of luring my mojo back, I participated in this week's Mojo Monday Sketch. The sketch is on the right and you can click here to check out the Mojo Monday Blog and see all of the other wonderful entries.

Here's my card... a Christmas one. One down... too many to count to go! (Who am I kidding? My cards will be from Sam's Club again this year, no doubt!) Supplies and an exciting announcement are listed at the bottom.


Here's a quick little tip: Do you see that lovely little holly charm? It's colored with green nail polish and red acrylic paint. If you paint a charm with acrylic paint, seal it with clear nail polish and it will stay beautiful and shiny! Click here to see what that charm looks like not painted. What a difference some color makes!

The inside of the card.

Paper: Artichoke, Burgundy and White Cardstock, K & Company Christmas Cheer Designer Paper
Stamps/Images: none
Ink: none
Accessories: Burgundy Grosgrain Ribbon, Scalloped Circle Punch, Christmas Tree Charm, Holly Charm

Okay, before I go... here's the exciting announcement. Well, maybe it's not that exciting.... I previously had a little blog with listings of brass charms for sale and I've decided to move them to my store on Etsy.com. I'm not finished with "the move", but I do have a few charms up on my etsy store and the two I used on this card are there. Click here, or click on the charm names in the supplies list above to see the store. Very soon, I'll have them all moved over from my blog and then I'll be able to add more to the etsy store. I'm really loving etsy and I hope you'll check it out!

Have a great day!
