I found my MOJO (Monday - 116)!!

Whew, who knew I could create TWO cards in ONE day while watching my girls and helping them color / paint on the table behind me. LOL Well, I guess it is possible and it really made my day enjoyable - totally took me away from the stresses of my life. I've had a lot of stress surrounding my job and losing childcare for my girls...Some of it was brought on by myself and I have no one to blame but me, but I just keep hoping it will all work out for the best in some way, some how.

Until then, I'll keep stamping away & I hope you'll enjoy two Christmas cards I made using this week's Mojo Monday 116. Since it's the start of the month - there are PRIZES -who doesn't like prizes?! LOL I know I do!

I used an adorable Tiddly Inks Snowfight stamp from Stamping Bella - Gosh, I adore these stamps. I got this stamp nearly a year ago and wouldn't you know, today is the first time she's been inked!!! Eeek! I hate when that happens. Isn't she a doll. I love this stamp and I think I'll be making a few more using her before the wonderful winter season is over. I colored her using Copics and added the puffy white stuff to her hat, and coat and boots (LOVE This stuff as well, after admiring it on the works of many others, I finally got some myself and let me tell you - it's so fun to play with.) The I added some fine glitter to the snowman and snowballs, b/c the last snowfall we got, when I went outside, it looked like it was laced with glitter and was so beautiful! I was inspired by my girls favorite colors to color one red and the other green. :)

Anyway, hope you likey!!!! Please leave me a comment if you do - I'd love to hear from you.

PS. Can someone tell me how to get it so you can click on the picture of my card to bring it up larger? I feel like you don't get to see a lot of the detail b/c that doesn't work....
