Circular Card and An Update on Summer Goals

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends,

Glad you stopped by today. Thanks! I appreciate the kind words and have enjoyed visiting you too.

I hope you have had a great week and the weekend turns out to be even better. I know it is hot, but it sure beats all that rain we had from Storm Debby.

I worked on a new shape card using the Mojo Monday sketch. I like the shape, but it wants to keep rolling to the side rather than standing up.

I left the inside blank so an appropriate sentiment can be added.

Mojo Monday
Here are the summer goals that I set on June 13th along with an update:

make shape cards  ~ I have made 7 so far (including today's circular card)! Yeah!

add stitching with the sewing machine ~ Not yet, but I am going to next week!

try some 3-D projects ~ I created a few sample gift boxes, but still want to make the Back to School treat bags. I already have a few ideas to make the first day back to school memorable!  

get published ~ I found a link that list current themes and dates for the Northridge Publishing Company, which include the Cricut Magazine and Cards Magazine. Projects are currently being accepted for the December 2012, January 2013, and February 2013 issues. Now all I need to do is create a few projects and submit for review.

hit 1000 followers  (still need 120 new crafty friends) ~ I have met a few crafty friends, but still need 102 more to reach 1000.

Did you set your goals yet?

What have you accomplished so far? Now it is time for you to evaluate and give an update!

Don't forget about my 2nd Blogoversary. You still have time!

 Stay Creative,

  6. Wow...great shape cards. I hate it when a shape card doesn't stand up...argh!! Lee-Ann :)

  7. Oooh, I love your different shaped card designs! I really love how you took a picture of the Mojo Monday on the Grass...I'm too lazy to step outside and our grass isn't as pretty. :) So luckily I have the Ikea pretend looking wood grain desk with lovely light coming through my window to get that earthy background. I also really like your orange & white flower circle card. Love the dimensions. It's very difficult to stray away from flowers-they can be used in almost all occasions. :) Thank you stopping by my blog! Happy scrappin'!

  8. Fabulous card!!! I love the different papers you used. The shape is great, too. So glad your goals are being met. The only one I have for this summer is to get my crafty room better organized and to plurge some older unused stuff. I will take a week of vacation to get this one done!! :)

  9. I love what you did with the Mojo sketch. Whenever I see a butterfly, I think of my cousin because she was a true social butterfly. Thanks for your comment on my blog, too. Have a great weekend.

  10. Way to get a great start on your goals!! Love all the shaped cards!
