Another Contest

So I want another chance to win some 'blog candy' from one of my favorite paper crafters to follow, Vicki Wizniuk. I enjoy her blog for many reasons, but here are my top 3... She uses a lot of Close to My Heart product, she's Canadian, and she posts a lot of creative homemade gift ideas!

Here's a photo of the great prize I could win (CTMH stuff, yay!):

Canadian Contest

Here's hoping I win this fabulous contest for a scrapbooking storage and workstation. I would so love this prize. Maybe I'd stop misplacing supplies and pages!!!

The contest is called "Canada Workbox Giveaway"
The prizes are produced by a company called "The Original Scrapbox"

Keep your fingers crossed, or say a prayer for me!!!

More Mojo

Here's another submission to this week's Mojo Monday 163.

I'm not sure the ribbon adds anything because I couldn't quite get it to behave the way I wanted it to. Otherwise, I'm really happy with the overall design. I again created a removable bookmark--this time I took it out of its pocket to photograph it separately. Admittedly the card doesn't look like much without the bookmark feature, but the keepsake isn't the card base anyway.

Getting My MOJO On!

I haven't done a lot of posting lately. I've made a bunch of cards, many of which I didn't photograph before I sent them out. So, I'm getting back into the blogging grove.

To kick things off, I participated in this week's Mojo Monday 163 Challenge, which also happens to be a contest where I could win a Verve stamp set--Wahoo!  I am starting to accumulate another fairly extensive Verve wish list, so it would be fantastic to win!!!

So, here's my attempt...

I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but the rectangular panel on the sketch really lent itself to being a bookmark. So, I created a little pocket and the recipient of the card can remove and use the bookmark.

Fast Challenges!

I discovered that the Verve Winter release had challenges at the last minute yesterday. I think I may have missed the deadline, but I decided to throw together a few cards to make an attempt at winning the release. They are simple cards, but fun and classy, if I do say so myself!

See for yourself...

U Pick!!!

One of the things I miss most from my childhood is going berry picking in the summer! I love, love, love pretty much any kind of berry and often enjoyed going to local farms to pick (and eat) berries by the bucketful! I remember once as a teen going to my aunt's in New Hampshire and picking blueberries the size of cherries! Yum!!! Unfortunately, I have not had/made the time to do any berry picking in the 12 years I've been married--silly me. We'll have to rectify that sometime in the near future. It's a memory I cherish and want my children to be exposed to as well.

In honour of this little jaunt down memory lane, I have a chance for you to play along! You pick which of the following two cards I made for the Mojo 150 contest you like best. I had two friends weigh in this week when I made them, and got one vote for each. I, personally, am undecided. We'll see if either of them will have enough "Mojo" for me to get a win!!!????
