So what did you do January 1st, watch the Rose parade and football games or maybe start to take down Christmas decorations?  I used the day to make some cards I will be sharing over the next few days and cooking a pork roast with sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and baked beans for our traditional New Years day dinner.  I enjoy looking at the decorations, they will stay up in the house for another week or so but the outside ones will be coming down this weekend.

Card for today is for this weeks MOJO Monday challenge, sketch below.


The card is a “tall & skinny” (card base is 3.5″ x 5.5″) and with embellishment measures 4.25″ wide, which fits in a standard A2 envelope.  The focal image is a Whisper White stamped circle on a starburst of Blackberry Bliss and embellished with Butterflies stamped from a new set “Butterfly Basics” from the new 2015 Occasions catalog and punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch. Don’t you just love when punches match stamps? I know I do! I decided to go with a Sorry You’re Sick stamp since this is the time of the year people seem to come down with the flu and thought it would be nice to have a card handy to send someone to cheer them up when they’re feeling down.  When reviewing the supply list below you may wonder why the Hexagon punch is listed – check out the nice banner ends on the Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey strips – thanks to the punch they are nice, clean and the same size.


Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the card.
