NBUS Monster & Anniversary Mojo

Two cards today.

This first card, for a few of my favorite challenges, features some 
Never Before Used Schtuff.
The monster is an Inkadinkadoo stamp (printed on green, white and orange CS then fussy cut and paper pieced) from a set I won 2 years ago in a challenge.  When I saw the challenge theme at Double Click Skittles was Monsters or Robots, the song Monster Mash came into my head and I went digging in my stash for monsters, finding this NBUS stamp.   Doesn't he look like he's dancing?  I thought about adding googly eyes, but decided on a few skittles instead.

Cards in Envy Challenge - Inspired by a Song (Monster Mash)
Double Click Skittles Challenge - Robots or Monsters
DJKardKreations NBUS #5 - Anything Goes (stamp)


Guess what?  The second card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch Contest.  I'm telling you...  I am serious about winning this challenge.  It's on my bucket list.  And, I like this week's sketch.
This one is an anniversary card using a House Mouse stamp, Taylored Expressions sentiment stamp and CTMH products.

Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - Anything Goes  (I've used 2 embossing folders, the large heart pattern on the background paper is a CTMH folder, the small heart pattern on the banner has no identifying brand name on it.  I think it came from Paper Wishes.)


I'm on my way to the SSAT show in Westminster, MD tomorrow.   
If you're in the vicinity, stop by and say "hi".  
I'll be teaching Make & Takes at the Close to My Heart booth.  
And, if you're planning to come, click here to find a coupon toward your admission.

I'll be back in blogland Monday with my Mojo Monday card.
Hope you have a wonderful week-end!
