Mojo Monday 485 with February SOTM
Mojo Monday 485 Sketch
I’ve been determined to become a card maker, and I think it is finally starting to happen. Typically, when I see the Mojo Monday email come through, I admire the sketch and occasionally go check out the cards being submitted. I don’t ever feel the desire to participate, because I don’t feel like I’m good enough. What I’m coming to realize is that “being good enough” isn’t the issue. I simply lack confidence in my ability to make cards. Well, that is changing. It doesn’t matter that I’m not an award winning card maker, what matters is that I’m having fun. Now, just imagine how awesome I would feel if I started sending the cards that I make! I’m going to keep saying that to myself until I actually start doing it.
It probably also helped that I didn’t have school today, so I had more time to get creative. I was also motivated by the Connected Hearts team challenge to create something using the February Stamp of the Month. So, you are getting a sneak peek at next month’s special!
February 2017 SOTM = Tea-rrific
I really like the versatility of this stamp set. Between the sketch and cute stamp set, I was inspired to make two cards! I also have ideas for using the Mother’s Day cup and the bunny from this month’s SOTM, so stay tuned. 🙂
It’s a little hard to see in the photo, but I fussy cut the images on the “You are tea-ffific” card from patterned paper from the Hello Lovely collection. On the “Your Love” card, I used the Blending Pen and ink pads to color the stack of mugs. I finished them off with the Clear Shimmer Brush. I also used the Gold Shimmer Brush on the heart.
