A Mojo Monday Thank You!

For today I used a sketch from Mojo Monday (even though it was one of last weeks sketches!) I have been admiring their sketches for a while and since I needed to make some more Thank You cards for my Father-in-Law, this seemed like the perfect time to play along. The sketch was from Day 4 of their Anniversary celebration and can be found HERE. This is my second card in two weeks with no Copic coloring. Boy, does that feel weird after 7 months or so of coloring everything!! Everything on the card is from Stampin Up (except the Nestabilities used to cut the main image and scallop circle!), although some of it is retired. I have a lot of retired SU paper that I had barely used. I always really liked it, I guess I was saving it for some "great" project or something. Do any of you do that? I am really trying to force myself to use the stuff I love instead of hoarding it!! Anyway, the DP is retired (one of my fave collections!) and the More Mustard ribbon doesn't seem to be in the new catalog either! (Actually I just looked and it wasn't in the previous catalog either! How long ago did I buy that stuff!!?)

Stamp: Pocket Silhouettes - SU
Paper: Autumn Vine (retired), Really Rust, Choc Chop, Whisper White - SU
Ink: Choc Chip Craft
Misc: Clear Embossing Powder, MM Ribbon (retired), Nesties

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi Traci
Great Mojoness! I love how you used this SU stamp. Great colors as we go into Fall.

Oh I hear you on the whole "saving the good stuff" trap, I have to keep telling myself I bought it to use it... not just look at it! Craziness! :)

And your card today is beautiful!

Ooooh this is just gorgeous! I think I might have to case this for my September swap cards. I just LOVE it! I bet it does feel weird to not be coloring.
