It's Monday, enough said.

I had a fun, busy, tiring weekend at the Heirloom Productions Stamping Show in York, PA this past weekend.  While I spent most of my time in Joyce's and Betty's Close to My Heart Booth

teaching the Make and Takes, I did get to sneak over to the booth next to ours, Sweet & Sassy Stamps,

to make of their lovely ATC/tag sized make and takes.  I told Cathy, the gal responsible for the design of the ATC I made and a designer at Sweet and Sassy,  that I planned to use it for on my Mojo Monday card today, if it worked with the sketch provided.

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect sketch.
I embossed light gray stardream paper from Marcos Paper (they were at the show and have some of the nicest papers) over a blue metallic DP over white CS  for the card background; a piece of CTMH silver glitter paper over more blue metallic with the banners attached came next; thes I added a strip of self adhesive gingham fabric; a black scalloped rectangle using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge was placed under the ATC; then a tiny silver glitter bow and alphabet stickers were added.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #315
Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - Sparkle and Shine
Inkspirational Challenge #41 - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge #128 - Use your ABC's
One Stitch at a Time Challenge # 185 - Winter Wonderland 

Enough posting for this morning.  I'll tell you more about the week-end later and show you the cards I taught at our Make and Take table.  
Before I go,
I want to give a big shout out to Kim,

the fantastic waitress we had at Round the Clock Diner after the show was over.  She was so much fun and helped us end the weekend with loads of laughs.  Maybe I'll even show you the picture of our goofy group, which she took of us before snapping this picture of herself!  
Thanks, Kim.  Hope to see you next year.
