Mojo Monday and July 4th via Instagram



Hello!  Just popping in with a quick birthday card I made for a co-worker.  I'm a little behind on production of personal cards with all my design team commitments and orders.  My apologies to any friends and family who are waiting patiently for me to get my act together!  I appreciate your patience!  

This card features a gorgeous stamp and die from Stampin' Up!  I just had to have both when I attended a demo a few months ago, but of course this is the first time I've had a chance to use them!  The stamp set is called Apothecary Art and the dies are the Labels Collection Framelits.  When I saw the Mojo Monday sketch (#248) this week I knew it was a perfect opportunity to christen them both!  I used Momento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp my image and Baja Breeze for the sentiment.  The flowers and leaves are colored with Copics and Prismacolor Markers.  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found Two: Sunshine.  My embellishments consist of a Martha Stewart border punch, a few flowers from my stash, and Baja Breeze seam binding.  I also popped the sentiment up with some foam squares for a little dimension.

It's a bit different from my norm, but I like the result.  There was no crafting yesterday due to the holiday and now I have some catching up to do.  We had an amazing day, though, so it was worth it!  I had a little fun with my droid and Instagram.  Here is a bit from our day:

Happy 4th of July
Beauty blooms in adversity

Chamomile

Buddies

Hop Scotch

Protectors

Sidewalk Art

And I even got to see fireworks out my window tonight.  A fabulous finale to a fantastic day!  Wish I had snapped a few photos of that!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Thursday!  I will be back tomorrow with a new Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Freebie Friday!

Love the colors. Although it is different from your usual I still like it a lot. Kayne is growing so much. He is going to be a real heart breaker! TFS

Oh Regan this is just gorgeous! I love seeing what happens when people switch it up- it always inspires me to push myself :) The photos from the 4th are awesome- your little guy is just the cutest thing ever! Hugs, Katie
