Mojo 123

Round card?! That's something I've never done before but I was feeling up for the challenge:) I'm not sure what supplies people normally use to make their round cards, so I had to improvise. My mom was getting rid of some of her old baking stuff not too long ago and she asked me if I wanted these cookie cutters. Now, I'm mostly a chocolate chip cookie girl myself, so I don't normally use cutters but I thought hey why not? When I got them home to put in my kitchen drawer....I thought of a better use for them and they went up into my craft room instead:) Now I can finally make some scallop circles! Anyways, I used the largest one to trace out the base for my card. I forgot to take a picture of the inside to show how I attached the two circles, but I'm sure there are more sophisticated ways out there in the blogosphere....

This is the card that I came up with. Je'taime! I think it just so sweet and cute and it's the perfect card for my niece's 1st birthday this weekend. When I saw the buttons in the right hand corner of the sketch I knew I wanted to break in my new sizzlit die that I got from Christmas. I love this die because you can create "buttons" of any colour or pp that you want:) And it worked perfectly to turn this hippo's single balloon into a threesome:) This card is a lot smaller than I envisioned, but I think that's partly why I love it.
