Mojo Monday & Gingersnap Creations

Updated 12/29/2011:  Thank you Gingersnap Creations  for naming me a Ginger Gem for this one!

* * * * * * * 

I’m combining the thank-you note challenge at Gingersnap Creations with the sketch from Mojo Monday this week.  Here’s the sketch and my take on it:



I used Basic Grey papers (Recess), a Dyan Reaveley background stamp, a Crafters Workshop stencil, and Ranger Distress inks.  The sentiment is heat embossed with clear powder as is the black flower which I cut with my Cricut.

I’ll share a little “oooops” about this in tomorrow’s post… can’t say until that project gets made… I’m sure you can guess where I’m going with THAT.


Your comments are very much appreciated!


  1. When I open your RSS feed it puts up a page of weird text, is the malfunction on my side?

  2. Nice blog here! Also your web site loads up very fast!
    What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your
    host? I wish my site loaded up as fast as yours lol

    us, keep it up.
