MoJo Monday on Friday

   I found this Fairy image-same as in my prior post- on a website by artist Phee McFaddell- intended as a coloring page- look here for the site and to check out her beautiful artwork.  My Mother loves Fairies, so I just know she will love this Poinsettia Fairy, so I decided to make her Christmas card with this image.
Here is the sketch for this week for the MoJo Monday Challenge that I used for this card:
And, here is my card for the MoJo Monday Challenge week 115


Close-up of the card- can you see the Angel Wings shimmerz on the fairy wings?  That is available for purchase from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. You can also see the small poinsettia flowers popped up on dimensionals. The Copic marker colors are in the next post- I also cut out one of the fairies and made an ornament for my Bloggers Challenge.The DSP is Basic Grey Figgy Pudding.


Other challenges this card fulfills:
Cupcake Craft Challenge- for Red and Green
Pink Elephant- Favorite Coloring Tool
Incy Wincy- Red and Green
Corrosive Challenge- red and green
2 Red banana's- Christmas card
365 Cards Day 275- Red and green

This is a set called Christmas Phrases from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. It has become my go-to set for so many of my cards for Christmas Phrases- and it is so reasonably priced- just $8.99 for all of these wonderful stamps! 

I also want to let you know that Pamela at Firecracker Designs is having a Blow Out Sale for Christmas- here are the details:

End of Year Inventory Blow Out! Help me make room for next year’s rubber! Most sets are being discontinued, so don’t delay!
All sale sets are priced as marked, and are on the SALE page! (below)
How it will work: Week 1 will be 40% off; discount will increase by 10% each week until inventory is gone or December is over! Discount changes every Thursday 40% - 50% - 60% -70% Off!

(Orders will be processed as they are received. Orders placed after Dec. 15 will be shipped in Jan.)
Due to the steep discounts on these items, coupons are not applicable. 

This has been a really hectic week for me- as I am sure it is with everyone.  I worked a bit extra at the hospital, and my daughter started basketball.  It is so cool- this year she plays in the big gym with the announcers and music during breaks and all- and her name is up on the scoreboard (as is the entire team).  She is on the JV team, so she plays and then is required to stay and watch the varsity team as well.  My husband is a basketball ref, so he can tell me all about what is going on if I do not know what a call is...........


I hope you are all having Blessed preparations for Christmas and Baby Jesus' Birthday!

Thanks for stopping by today!

great card and thanks for the link - that will probably end up costing me a fortune - some fab stamps over there.
