Mojo 99

Tada! Without further ado, my Mojo Monday 99 card! I've even got time to spare this week:))
My excuse...I was out having fun at the State Fair this week and NO, I did not sample the chocolate covered frozen bacon on a stick! But yes, I was all over the cheesecake on a stick, dipped in chocolate and rolled in nuts! My, my, that was tasty, as was the every wonderful, calorie laden fresh cream puff, Wisconsin's finest! Oh yes, and there were other yummy treats too, like the butter dipped roasted corn on the cob and the giant piece of barbequed pork on a stick and the frozen chai tea and the elk burger, oh my!! After all that we got to kick back and listen to a great concert with some oldies but goodies...The Spencer Davis Group, Gary Pucket and last but not least by any means, Davy Jones of the Monkeys. The weather cooperated with us with temps in the low 80's and a nice breeze off the lake to keep us comfy. All in all a funtastic day!
Back to my card details:
All the paper I used was from the DCWV "Citrus Stack". The birthday sentiment is from SU's "Sincere Salutations" set. I cut it out with a nestie and mounted it on dimensionals. I added punched corners and flowers for accents that were punched with my EK success punches. The flowers are also up on dimensionals and have pearl centers. I included a close-up so you could see how sparkly the paper is. I think I'll save this card for my mother-in-law's birthday in October.


  1. Great job with this sketch got the better of me this week. Love all the sparkly paper and the popped flowers!

  2. Now that I've stopped laughing after reading your post LOL! You're card is lovely. I love the papers that you used. Great colors! I wonder why it is that they put all state fair food on a stick? Maybe because it's easier to eat while walking. I hope you were joking about the frozen chocolate covered bacon - that just sounds nasty - though I do love bacon and chocoloate. :)

  3. What a beautiful card Emily,i love the papers and colours.

  4. You're in WI? My pop is originally from there so I have lots of relatives in WI. The food at your state fair sounds OMG good but OMG calories too!!

    Your mojo Monday card is so cute! I keep seeing people post mojo cards and keep saying I need to check it out but keep forgetting until Sunday nights when I'm too tired to try. ha ha ha!

  5. I guess I should have read this post first about the State Fair food! You made me very hungry right before bed... LOL! All low cal, fat free, and low sodium food for sure!! Ha... We need to indulge and enjoy life, right!! :)

    Fantastic card with lots of cheery colors, and you nailed the MOJO sketch for sure! TFS and Hugs from Minnesota!! Michelle :)
