Mojo Monday 167 - Mistletoe & Oliver

I must really like this weeks Mojo sketch because I couldn't stop at one card. I think thats a first for me to make two different cards in one day. Also, I can now add to my accomplishments the making of a round card. I looked all through my notes and gallery and was surprised to discover I hadn't made one before. I have to admit that it's pretty darn easy to make a round card with the new Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities.

Thank you for stopping by ..... :)

The first card is a Christmas card that I'll probably make a few of. I'll definitely use larger inner circles on the next ones I make. This one is too top heavy and that big dead space on the bottom left is screaming at me to "fix it"!!

The second card is for my nephews' birthday. He won't care that it's handmade, but my lovely sister-in-law likes my cards so I make them for her. The jury is still out on this one; I think it came out too busy with all the different DP's. Since Nic's birthday isn't for awhile, I might take it apart and change out the lowest layer (trains) and replace it with a solid in a complimenting color.

  1. I love both of your cards!!! The second one is my favorite with the colors and the stars :) btw thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. Congratulations on making your first round card! I don't make them often, but I think they're fun. These are adorable. I love the red one especially.

  3. I am a big fan of round shaped cards, and yours inpired me a lot.


  4. Texas Mistletoe in Southern Florida is a dioeciously place -- that is, men and ladies flowers are taken on individual vegetation. The flowers are small and creamy-white in shade. Only the females flowers generate place plant seeds, which are white-colored and involved in a difficult, gelatinous pulp enabling the place plant seeds to follow the waste of vegetation.
