I've Got April Mojo Cards


Happy Thursday everyone!  April will be over in just three days and then we can practically blink to get through the month of May. This month has just gone by so fast that I can't believe it.

I wanted to write up a little post, which you know me and my short posts, so it really will be as little as possible on words but big on projects.

I had two other cards created for the Verve release this month, but didn't get them done in time for the Spotlight Hop week. A third card to play more those awesome Verve flowers from Love Deepens set.


This is my Shabby Bloom and Grow card that hidden somewhere is the Mojo 185 sketch. Look real close...it's really there.

A Handmade (as in name of the designer paper) Called Blessed card that I used the Mojo 186 sketch. I've got a theme going here!

My Hello Friend card is hiding Mojo 187 sketch in it somewhere. Yep, it's another squinter. Hey, I just realized I've done almost all of the Mojo sketches for the month of April. I might have to try and squeeze in one more this weekend. Here's hoping for some craft room time!

A quick mention on this last card. Seeing all the gorgeous cards from Verve Diva Sankari this last release, I began to wonder how long it would take to create a card with all those liquid pearl dots. I didn't have any liquid pearls but I subtly added Black Diamond Stickles wherever I thought I could. This card doesn't come close to the amount of time per dots she puts in her cards, but I now have even more appreciation for her craftsmanship.
