MOJO 214

Well I have been busy attending theater, card class and of course golfing.  I have also been doing a lot of socializing.  Went to the Ocala Civic Theater on Sunday and seen Steel Magnolia's.  The cast did a terrific job and of course I cried because one of the characters died.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience with two of my friends, Shirley and Linda.  The three of us have quite a few plays scheduled and I do love to go to the theater.  I returned to Stamping Fools, a card making group in the Villages, and made three lovely cards.  One was mailed immediately for my friend in Minnesota, Juliana.  It was her birthday on November 5th and she drinks tea and that was the theme of this card so it was perfect. 

Today my friend, Shirley and I went to one of the recreation centers, Colony Cottage, to a pine needle basket show.  It is truely amazing what these people have produced with pine needles.  I am looking for additional crafts to delve into.  I loved the beautiful pieces that were displayed and for sale but I don't know if this is the craft for me.  I'll just keep looking.

While I keep looking for some new craft for me to try out, I have decided to get going on some of the card challenges that are out there and my first one is MOJO Monday 214.  I used the sketch to make a holiday card.  Hope you enjoy. 

I embossed the red background with a cuttlebug folder and thought it reminded me of a candy cane. I used Nestibilities to cut the squares and oval.   I purchased premade flowers and ribbon (candy cane looking) at Michaels and I used "Wishing You Joy" stamp set from StampTV's latest kit.
