My Mojo is Off the Wall..

Ok, so the play on challenge words wasn't that great. It's late here (ok, just 9:00, but still..) and my brain is half asleep! What do you expect? lol

I decided to go ahead and break my *No stamping after 7pm* rule cause I wanted to get these two challenges done while I had the idea in my head. The card isn't exactly what I had envisioned, but it's close. The panel at the top with the circle seems to need something..not sure what, though. This card was created for the Mojo Monday Challenge (my second entry..lol) and the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge. The colors rock the house, and the layout is fantastic! I'm not usually a bright color person, so this was a challenge for my eyes..lol..but I like the way they all worked together and I think this bella (Strumabella) is perfect for it. She looks like me...if I was really thin, could play guitar, and was rocking the Afro. :0) Ok, so without further ado...



I took about 15 pictures of this card and it just doesn't want to look right on here. It's so much more vibrant in person..it truly is. Not sure if you can tell, but the rug and her jeans are paper pieced. As much as it annoys me to cut out little bitty pieces, I just can't stop doing it. I love having designs or textures that I cannot duplicate with a marker on my cards..it just adds something to it that I love. Ok, well that's it for now. I'll have something new to share tomorrow probably so y'all come back now..ya hear? :0)

Seriously, though, someone please call my husband and tell him I need a camera..lol. My poor iPhone can't handle much more. Either a camera or at least a 3Gs iPhone. I'm still rocking out the original version...lol. Good thing my birthday is in a couple of months! Haha.
