Gone to Tahiti

I don't think it's ever too early to make cards for Christmas....so here's another one.  I found this sketch over at Pals Paper Arts and will enter this into their challenge for the week.  Clean and simple - but I have another Christmas card done for the year now!!  The image is from SU's Beautiful Seasons and I paired it with Gold and Cherry Cobbler which I embossed with the Square Lattice die (SU)..  The ribbon is pretty much the exact same color as Cherry Cobbler and I also used some shiny gold ribbon I had.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I colored the image with Copics and then used a Spica red pen for the berries.  It was lightly sponged with Antique Linen.


My mojo has gone to Tahiti....Bottom Line!!!  It left me all alone here in Texas to fend for myself....and I'm really not liking this deal at all!  HOPEFULLY it'll return soon - um....or maybe I'll just head on over to Tahiti to visit!

Hope everyone has a nice weekend.......and thanks for stopping by.......
Lynn

Are you kidding me? If this is what you create when your mojo is gone, there is no hope for me when my mojo is with me!! LOL
This is elegant and beautiful. The ribbons are sumptuous! Verrrrry classy!
(your mojo gets to go somewhere exotic & warm?? Get on out of there and follow it girl!)

Heading to Tahiti sounds like a wonderful thing to do. Why did you let your Mojo go alone? Your Christmas card is beautiful with the gold and red. You will be ahead of the game come December

This is really nice and like me you've used a bird on your card! The bow makes the card so stylish!

Lynn, looking at this card I don't think your mojo has gone anywhere. However, if it is taking a little sujourn in the warm South Pacific - I want to go visit it and bring it back for you!
For the record, I think your card is lovely!
Hugs

This is one of my favorite stamps and I love that ribbon treatment! Isn't it a good feeling to have some Christmas cards done early?

Ahh...so that is where my mojo is with yours in Tahiti! I am so like you struggling big time to get a card done. Your card is stunning, love the gold and Cherry Cobbler with that iimage, wonderful card, so don't worry about your mojo, you are doing fine without it.

Anne Marie Hile said...

I read your blog post and was seriously envios...because I thought YOU went to Tahiti! Lol! I think that your mojo and my mojo booked that trip together. Ugh! I think it is this time of the year...when everything flies south for the winter. Wait a minute...we ARE in the south. Oops! Although, I have to tell you, I would never guess that your mojo is on vacay with this pretty card. Beautiful shading and a gorgeous ribbon treatment. Very pretty, Lynn!
