MOJO43, TLC174 Fresh Cuts

Sorry for keeping you waiting with this post....

This has been a crazy week - my girls have Vacation Bible School and we are leaving the house everyday by 8:00 am and I'm usually not home until 2:00 pm. We also signed Miriam up for *swimming lessons* in the afternoon - what was I thinking??? Long day's -I'm trying to hang in there - LOL!!!

A couple of people have tagged me and given me awards - I'll try to post something next week - when everything has slowed down.....I have not forgotten - I just haven't had time to do it yet!!!

Anyway - this is my card I have squeezed in this afternoon for Julee Tilman's MOJO #43 - which you can see right here. After I have made it I realized I could post it under yesterday's TLC #174 *Watercolor with Reinkers* as well and so I did - you can see the info and cards to this Challenge right here.

This fabulous Sketch from Julee made this whole card come together so fast!!! BTW - have you all seen the fabulous new colors from Papertrey Ink yet??? OMG - hop on over there and check it out!!! I totally fell in love with the gorgeous *Plum Pudding* Color. Actually what sold me on it was the fabulous Ribbons - crazy huh??? Had to have them and when my package arrived I was itching to use them.....

Okay - so I did not stop with the Ribbons and Cardstock - LOL - I had to have the Ink Pad too....The *Fresh Cuts* Set was inked with Plum Pudding and I've colored the flowers and stems with Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery. I went for the softer look to compliment the Plum color. The scalloped edge was done with the largest scalloped rectangle Nestie and I have used the 5/8" *Saddle Stitched Ribbon* on top. The fab Rhinestones are from SU.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to sign up for my Blog Candy down below - you have only one more day to participate!!!

Don't forget today is the offical Release day of all the wonderful Stamp Set's from *Little Paper Shop*!!!
