Setting A Record for October!

I have been bitten by the MOJO BUG! That's a good thing... maybe!

Set a record for the month of October for making the most cards - comparing 2008, 2009, 2010 to 2011 cards made - I've doubled my quota!

First Card is for the
- it's a picture trigger titled "Autumn Woods" (left)

I was inspired by the autumn colored squares and tried to duplicate those in my project with paper weaving using autumn color scheme with card stock! Embellished with a punched pumpkin for the focal point, brown sponging, "Many Thanks" stamp along with a leaf brad - completes this Autumn Wood card project!

Also added this card in the Quirky Crafts website - Challenge #22 - Autumn Leaves
and the CCEE Stampers Challenge CCEE1142 - Fall Theme

Next is a DIGI image challenge for the Anita Be Stampin website - ABS Challenge #25 "Get Spooky". I've not worked much with digital images - but I'm learning. This digi bat is a cutie!

The Digi Bat is colored w/copic markers; double mounted for a 3-D effect - along with a pastel toned background, Halloween designer paper, black & orange ribbon, orange & black card stock and "Happy Halloween" stamp.

Next is card project for the Stamp 441 sketch challenge. All supplies and stamps are
from Stampin Up - Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango designer paper, ribbon, "Earth Elements" brads, curvy square punch and 2007 stamp w/ "God is not too great to be
concerned about our smallest wishes". Here is the sketch designed used for Challenge #226 (right).

Last by not least - is a card project WITHOUT designer paper! This was harder than it looks! This is for the One Stop Craft Challenge #154 So I embossed the card stock with the "Happy
Birthday" embossing folder by Cuttlebug, added a stamp by SU - double mounting the head for 3-D effect; colored with prisma colored pencils & glitter; added some vanilla ribbon for a very simple card!

So this MOJO BUG is keeping me busy with creating and designing new projects - remember this is my THERAPY also! LOL!

We've got our monthly "Sip and Swap" card swap tomorrow night - the theme was Pink, Birthday, Circles for 10 people... I'll post the cards soon!

Thanks for stopping by! Remember to hug the ones you love the most - until the next time...
