Mojo Monday Week 87

Can you believe it took me a whole week to figure out what I wanted to do with this sketch? Maybe I did it backwards.I got my Paper & colors I wanted to use then I figured out what I was going to put in them. I wonder how other people think up there design? If you have any hints please share.
I used olive green polka dot paper from a paper pack called The First Blush Collection by Prima,Stamp is by Whimsy Stamps Animal Collection. Used my Circuit to cut Happy Birthday message, scallop,circle,squares,& lilypond flower. The background paper is once again wallpaper scraps I got from Lowes. I used pop dots for the frog & lily pad.
I enjoyed thinking about what I wanted to put in the sketch. Then seeing it come to exactly like you pictured. Fun can't wait to try again.

Learning Everyday & New Thank you Card

I got my new stamps in this week. I'm so excited! Hopefully I'll get to try a few challenges. I sent out my thank you card and today I read that I put the flower on wrong.Ohh Well it's a learning process, but I think the card came out good.
Today I learned how to attach flowers with brads and how to attach a hyperlink to my blog. So many sites out there for a new bloggers like me to utilize. If your new to blogging and need help with understanding how to attach links,widgets and so much more visit Tips For a New Blogger
Learning something new and getting to apply it to things you love to do Is just wonderful....Don't you agree?

My First Attempt

My first Attempt at an Unscripted Sketches 06.

I tend to make cards with whatever I have on hand. Not caring if it is acid free or name brands.
If it's a scrapbook page or something that will be kept for a longtime I will use acid free products, but in this case I didn't.
This card was made with wallpaper sample tan marbleized background. Blue paper by K& C Company Paper Pack. Stamp is from Stamps Happen, Inc. purchased at Hobby Lobby. I used watercolors & pastels by gallery. Ribbon purchased at Wal-Mart made by A Touch of Ribbon.
I enjoyed making this card, and look forward to trying more challenges. Hopefully improve on my technique as well.
