I'm Back from the Show with Lots of Crafting Mojo

I spent the weekend in Edison NJ doing Close to My Heart Make & Takes at the Stamp Scrap Art Tour show.  I have a bunch of stuff to do today, unpacking, 3 days of newspapers, mail, cat litter, etc.  But, you know me.  I gotta do my Mojo Monday card first thing.   So I'm going to post this card I made for Grace, who went into the hospital while I was away.

Here is today's Mojo Monday #318 Contest sketch:

I flipped it sideways to make this card featuring one of my favorite stamps by Great Impressions:

(My Mind's Eye DP, SU embossing folder, CTMH ribbon, Michael's flowers)
I am also entering this card in these challenges:
Brown Sugar Challenge #66 - Things with Wings 

Now let me tell you about the show.....
For the first time I went to the Friday Make & Take Party.  In the past, I was still in the process of stocking our booth when the M&T Party started.  But we all worked our butts off (not literally, of course, or it would have been much more comfortable in the teeny tiny IHOP booth where we had breakfast on Sunday) and had everything for the show all ready in plenty of time for Laurie, Erin & I to attend.
We made 8 different items, moving from table to table every 15 minutes. 

Everyone attending received a goodie bag and a raffle ticket.  Below is a photo of the adorable bear with cookie jar stamp I won, surrounded by the goodies that I found in my bag.
I almost forgot to mention the fantastic dessert table they provided for us and which we enjoyed immensely!

One more photo for today....

This is my version of the make and take that was being offered in the Stamplistic booth at the show.  You could choose from a variety of designs, cut and place them wherever you chose, and glitter and bling according to your own taste. With a pin back added, there were some gorgeous creations being modeled throughout the show.  I couldn't resist stealing away from our booth to make one myself.  

The Stamp Scrap Art Tour will return to Edison the first weekend in November, 2014.  Mark your calenders! And to see other locations where they will be having shows, go to their website here.

Tomorrow I'll show you the Make & Takes that I taught at our Close to My Heart Booth.
