Mojo Monday 94

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July holiday weekend. We spent time with our kids and had fun just joking around and spending time together. Of course, there was food on the grill and salads enough to make everybody gain another pound or two. Time to get back in the 'eating right' routine. I refuse to call it a diet 'cuz then I want to eat everything I know I shouldn't! Why is it as soon as you go on a diet your body is convinced you're trying to starve it and you start craving junk food that you don't even really like?? There's just no cheating when it's diet time. Gotta get my mind off the brownies and cashews. Boo hoo!
Okay, enough of this talk about food - it's calling to me! It's whispering my name and telling me just one teeny little bite won't hurt. Arrrggghhh! Get away from me! Let's talk about stamping instead. That has no calories (as long as you stay away from all that lovely chocolate!) and even makes you feel good when you make something pretty. I went to the Mojo Monday blog here this morning to see what they had for inspiration. Wow, the design ladies all had just gorgeous samples for us. You really need to check it out if you haven't already and maybe play along too.
As soon as I saw the layout, I thought of my Tea Party Designer Series Paper. I knew that would be the basis for my color choice and I'd go from there. After going to the London, Ont. Regional, I received the set On A Pedestal which is a new set in the new catalog. I figured it was about time to get it out and use it. :-)
All stamps and materials by Stampin' Up!
Stamps: On A Pedestal
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Whisper White cardstock and Tea Party DSP
Ink: Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, and Chocolate Chip Markers
Accessories: Soft Subtles Brads, 1 3/8" Circle and Scallop Circle Punches, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, and Dimensionals
This card was so quick and easy to put together because of the Designer Paper and Mojo Monday sketch. Once you have those two items worked out, the card almost makes itself! Give this one a try and see how easy it is for yourself.
I just wanted to mention the Stampin' Up! "Deal of the Week". You can get the Big Shot Bag at a 30% off discount! The bag is normally $69.95 but for this week only it's $49.99. That's an awesome price!
Okay, I guess that's it for this post. I'll be back tomorrow with more news and views for your viewing pleasure. Have a good one and keep stampin'!
