My first Mojo Monday upload + the 'Just believe' set from SU

Hi dear stampers. Welcome to my first attempt of the 'Pursuit-of-Mojo-Monday' challenge. Iam so tickeled with this card. I would have never thought of all these layers. But they rock. Ihave to tell you.. I have been watching the MOJO Monday challenges for a while now and I am so impressed with them. These woman that come up with these challenges are so incredible creative! I love them...

Last Monday was actually their 150th MOJO Monday challenge
. A big hug and a huge Congratulation to these 7 wonderful woman who have been putting their hearts and so much of their time and talent in these challenges. 150 is sure a Mile Stone! Please hop by their blogs and send them some online love :) My card is dedicated to them! Thanks so much ladies!

This week Julee Tilman created this beautiful layout for The Mojo Monday Challenge card. Thanks Julee! Your sweet and kind personality just shines through your blog.I loved sitting down with my yummy Chai Lattee and reading your blog and seeing all your wonderful projects. Thanks for sharing your gift of creativity. You are a true artist! I hope you will have a wonderful day with lots of people popping by your blog and making you smile!

For the first time I used the Crumb cake card stock from Stampin Up. I have to say I felt the spark. We are connected. This is such an elegant and beautiful color. So glad I tried it out. Can't wait to share it with my Stamper friends.
I also used the Old Olive card stock and run it through the Big Shot Machine with the Square Lattice embossing folder die. What a great combination this embossed image is to the 'Just believe' stamp set. It is like they are made for each other.
I also used the scallop circle punch together with the 1-3/8 large circle punch and the 1 1/4 circle punch . They all fit just perfectly in each other and show just enough of the circle to add some layers.
I added some Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon and made a nice border with the Scallop trim border from Stampin Up. I stamped the 'For You' sentiment on a piece of card stock and punched it out with 1 -3/8 x 5/8 oval punch.

Wowh, I think that's it.. Lots of details! Thanks for hanging in there!
Now I have to try to enter this 'challenge' on to the Mojo Monday website.. Oh my.. Computers are not my strongest skill in life.. To enter it in, will be a challenge for me..
But.. there is a first thing for everything... right!

I just had to come back to this post and edit it.. I DID IT!!! I posted this card on their Moho Monday website.. How cool is that! OH my! What a day.. Now I have to make some lunch here for our 3 adorable kids. Life is waiting again.. Bye for now!
