A Little Bit O' Mojo + Blog Candy!

It's been a LONG time since I've played along with the Mojo Monday madness, and I decided that I needed to play along this week. You can view the original Mojo Monday sketch here. My card is perfect for Friday, don't you think? :)
Sometimes I do these Mojo sketches and I just get overwhelmed, but I am really happy with how this turned out. I like the retro feel to this card, thanks to the Kiwi Kiss designer paper. I wish I had a stamp that said something like, "Shaken, not stirred." :) I think this would also make a fun "girls' night out" invite. I don't think I've ever even had a martini, but love this card all the same!

Today is my final blog candy give-away for my blogoversary, which I've been celebrating all month long. I have had so much fun with this and I have absolutely LOVED reading all of your comments. Today you have a chance to win the Make it Count stamp set (10 stamps!) and a spool of Certainly Celery poly-twill ribbon. Wahoo!

Just leave me a little comment on this post and I will draw one random winner using Random.org at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning (I'm REALLY hoping I get a chance to sleep in!). Remember - if you leave an "anonymous" post, please leave your first name and last initial somewhere in your comment. I love hearing from you all and wish you luck!

Stamps: Cheers to You, Fundamental Phrases
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss textured cs, Kiwi Kiss dsp
Ink: Black Staz-On, Real Red marker, Old Olive marker
Accessories: 1 3/4" circle punch, Coluzzle, 1/4" circle punch, Real Red brads, Basic Black grosgrain ribbon

Hi Jen

I saw one of your beautiful creations on SC and followed the link to your website. I really like the clean lines of your cards and this Martini card is great example. Keep up the great work.:o)

The Martini Glass on the card just makes me think of the 60's and the green fits nicely. I love the card very nice.

I like the addition of the pink brads. Without the brads it could be a card for a gentleman too. Thanks for all the inspiration you provide here. I like to visit often. Happy Blogoversary and thanks for the chance to win again. Keeping my fingers crossed for this one. Priya

Cute card; you could always use your computer for the shaken not stirred sentiment and punch or cut it out. Love the candy you are offering, I missed out on the hostess set when it was available and would love to win it! Thanks for the chance. jmniffer

That clinches it --I'm having a martini tonight!

Your card is my favorite one that I've seen using that Mojo sketch. Even with all those layers, it still looks clean and simple. Fantastic job!

And happy blogoversary!

I absolutely love your Mojo card this week! The color of the olive in the drink carries beautifully through the rest of the card. I could see a set of drink cards made with the color of the 'drink goodies' matched to the dcs as you have done here. (Why do I suddenly feel like having a Bloody Mary?) Thanks for sharing.

La lalalalove this card! Very cute with the martini stamp.
And, um, I think you need to have a martini this weekend - you'll love it. A flirtini perhaps!
