My Mojo Can't Stay Awake As Long As the Rest of Me

Hey, hey my friends!  Hope you all are enjoying what's left of this weekend.  If you've got nice weather, I'm a little jealous.  We had tornado warnings yesterday and crazy storms.  Of course the story varies depending on which block you live on.  Gotta love St. Louis weather.

If you haven't checked it out yet, make sure you stop by the Scrap It With A Song challenge blog.  Each week there's a new song to inspire your layouts, cards and other projects.  Challenge #2 should be up tomorrow!

SO... my plan was to stay up late the last couple of nights and finish up my cards for this past week at 365 Cards.  No dice.  My body stayed up late cutting pieces of paper into piles of unusable scraps (I'm probably exaggerating just a little), but my "mojo" went right to sleep.  I did manage to finish a card I had started earlier in the day, so that's the one I'm sharing with you.

We're gonna skip over Day 53 for now (I KNOW, right?  It's killing me too!! Lol. Ugh.)  and go to Day 54-Fancy Folds. The challenge was to create a "joy fold" card.  I'd never made one before, but I love how it looks!  Will definitely be making more like this.

I absolutely LOVE this patterned paper.  And actually because it's two-sided, I was able to make this whole card from one sheet.  I don't know if you can tell from the pictures, but all the black on that butterfly is covered with that velvety flocking stuff.  It's awesome.

Thank you all for stopping by!
