Mojo Monday Week 94

Hello Everyone,

Well I'm not 100% back to good health yet, but I am officially stir Crazy. Staying in bed for 3 days is not easy to do, especially when the nice UPS man comes to your door with a BIG box of SU! goodies. But I was good on Friday and the rest of the weekend and stayed in bed and rested, not that I had much of a choice. My DH took the kids out all day Saturday so I could rest and why should they be bored just cause Mom is clumsy and pinched a nerve in my back. They went to the Movies, shopped for new Webkinz, went to the Air show at the Trenton Air Base and even went out for Dinner. They had a blast!! with out me :(
Well today I am on the mend and can sit for short periods of time. So although this one took me a while, its done!! I have completed Mojo Week 94!! Sorry about the clarity of the pictures, My camera really didn't pick up the beautiful colour of SU!s new in colour Rich Razzleberry.




For this card I used:
Paper: SU! Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White and Kraft Card stock, SU! Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper and SU! Kraft DSP from the retired Paper Patterns Pack I
Ink: SU! Rich Razzleberry classic Stamp Pad and re-inker
Stamps: SU! Always item# 113620
Tools: SU! new Modern Label Punch item#116630, Word Window Punch item# 105090, 1-3/8 Inch Circle Punch item# 104401, Scallop Circle Punch item# 109043 and 1-1/4 Inch Circle Punch item# 104403
For the brads I wanted rich razzleberry but since SU! does not make those I used some crystal Effects and reinker mixed together and painted white brads. Also for the thinner ribbon I used the Rich Razzleberry cardstock and stamped on it with a small flower from the always stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink, Sorry doesn't show so well in the photo.
Hope you enjoyed my card, I sure did enjoy making it and can't wait to be better and make more!!
Happy Stampin'

Stuck in Bed

Hello Everyone, just a quick post today and sorry no new cards or projects. Right now I am typing from my bed on a very old (win98) Laptop. Well this has been one of those Murphy's Law kind of weeks. Right now I am stuck in bed because I have put out my back, pinched nerve.

So unfortunately I have to postpone my open house planned for tomorrow. I have contacted all of you who have RSVP'd but just in case I missed anyone I am posting on here as well. Earlier in the week I had a little incident with low blood pressure but that turned out to be nothing to worry about. So Since all things come in 3's, now I have to temporarily cancel my open house scheduled for tomorrow :(

I had some really great make n takes planned for tomorrow but will have to save then for a later date. The UPS man came this morning with my new order of fun and exciting items from the new catty and I can't wait to start creating, but Doctors orders are in bed and minimal moving or sitting. I asked my husband to bring some supplies up here, but he said no:(

Well Time to take my meds and have a nap, so I will be back as soon as I can, until then...

Happy Stampin'
