Mojo Monday, Verve Parade and my newest venture

I finally get to submit for Verve Stamps' Mojo Monday Challenge. I also combined Verve's Project Parade Challenge to make something for a special woman in your life.

I see Mojo's sketches in many blogs I visit and I've always admired them, but think the sketches are just far too fancy for my abilities. I'm the type that likes to produce quick and easy, clean and simple cards. It's very rare that my cards take more than 30 minutes to make. But, that's why I love challenges. They make me try something new and I end up loving it. Having the chance to win some free stamps is a good motivator, too. :-)

Here's the sketch for this week's Mojo.

And here's my card:

I just couldn't find the perfect paper to put on the bottom panel, so I just embossed it. The flower is my own drawing that's printed on the computer with the sentiment, which means "happy mother's day" in Croatian. The image is watercolored using reinkers.

ETA: You can download this flower image as a freebie on this post.

Supplies: Stamps (Guidelines); Papers (Aqua Mist, Basic Black CS, American Tradition DSP); Ink (Blush Blossom, Rose Romance, Sage Shadow, Pretty in Pink reinkers by SU); Cuttlebug folder, button by Basic Grey, ribbon by Joann's.

And I just want to share my newest design venture. This is huge because it's a first for me. I now offer one of my designs on t-shirts for ladies and little girls through Zazzle.com. They're perfect for spring and summer and there are many colors to choose from. Here's the design and the sample shirts follow. Click on the picture to go directly to buy it. Thanks for letting me share my news.
