One long Monday and finally some Mojo!

Good Afternoon!!! Ok, it has been a Monday all day today!@#$#@$% eh,hem sorry. I feel better now. I won't bore you with all the details of today, but I will talk about my fridge for a second before I move on to the fun stuffs!! Our fridge decided to go on the fritz last Thursday. It has one of these funky control panels that is run by a computer I'm sure. Thursday night, I'm all comfy watching my Survivor when all of a sudden the little flap door thingy where the ice comes out starts opening and closing. And opening and closing. And Banging!!! And the lights start Blinking!!!! Well, we don't know what's going on. SO we plug the door thing with a towel so it won't make so much noise. We call the repair people on Friday. They'll come Monday. Guess when our one year warranty runs out? Tuesday. Thank goodness we got in under the wire!! Then, over the weekend, the fridge stops cooling so all of the food has to be taken out or thrown away. BLECH! I hate to waste food. We got it fixed today thank goodness. Listening to that banging constantly for 4 days was wearing down my nerves. Enjoying the silence, you ask? Yes, from the fridge, NO from the 3 year old. He has really been feeling his threes lately.

But now that the fridge is fixed, on to fun stuff. Today is Mojo Monday!!! Woo hoo! I am participating for the second time. It really is a lot of fun. You should check it out HERE. I worked for quite a while on my card. My mojo was just not flowing this morning. I'm sure it was mostly due to the fridge fritz. But here's what I finally came up with. Let me know what you think!
What I used: Stampin' Up! only. Papers: Certainly Celery, Pacific Point, Real Red, Whisper White, Vellum. Inks: Stazon, Pacific Point, Real Red Marker, Going Grey Watercolor Crayon. Stamp Set: Pun Fun. Other: Hodgepodge Hardware (this type is retired, but it's all I had right now), Vintage Brads, Word Window, Corner Rounder and Small Oval Punches, Celery Buttons, Paper Piercing tools, White Grosgrain ribbon, Aqua Painters.

I had to use the corner rounder punch for my scalloped edge on the vellum, because I don't own the scallop edge punch yet. Yet! The whale has been stamped twice and the top image has been colored, cut out and popped up from the bottom image. The red circle and the green oval have been popped up also. It's hard to see in the picture, but I have pierced the paper around the blue and under the oval. I wish you could see it better. I'm going to work on taking a better picture later.

I am fairly happy with the way it turned out. Even if it did take me all day. Tomorrow I hope I'll have a chance to play the color combo challenge on SCS.
Have a Stamptacular Day!
