Mojo Monday 300 & Paper Sweeties Sketch #9

 Happy 300th challenge Mojo Monday!

  Mojo Monday is celebrating their 300th challenge and they have some great prizes . I used myUSA 1776 from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The flowers are from Cheery Lynn Die. Blessing is masked off Easter Blessings from Stamps by Judith. I made this one last night but not enough light to take the photo. Flash just washes out the card for me. 

 I made this card at 3:00am as the smoke alarm started chirping because of low battery… I wonder why that never happens in the middle of the day just the middle of the night!
I wanted to make a card with a few of the new Paper Sweeties sets I won.  I didn't have a banner stamp but was dyeing to use this sweet set Giddyup . I know not really banner flags... but its what I came up with at 3am.

We spent about 5 days with a few of the kids and their families in Yosemite and I thought I would show you just how beautiful it was. The water was perfect and we had this spot all to ourselves!  
Gods Nature Resort!

 Take Care and thanks for stopping by


  1. Both cards are fantastic. Your Mojo sketch card is beautiful and the Lil' Buckaroo card so sweet. Yosemite is on my bucket list, we spent time a couple years ago at Yellowstone, so almost there. Your photos are fabulous and nothing like the great outdoors especially with family! Happy 4th!

  2. If you don't win something with that Lil Buckaroo card, I will be totally shocked. It is so cute! I love those little horses and on a banner too! Those pics from Yosemite look so beautiful, you must have had such fun!

  3. Love both of your cards Marybeth - great panels and use of the sentiments on the 4th card - and the cowboy themed card is too cute!

    What wonderful pics of Yosemite - DH and I went there after attending a wedding in SF - we were only there a day - but we loved it - so breathtaking everywhere you look!

  4. Both are fantastic! Love your gingham flowers with the star centers!! The Lil Buckaroo card is adorable! Such a fun way to use those images--looks like a winner to me! And TFS your Yosemite pictures! Would love to be planning a trip to soak in all that beauty!

  5. Great work on both cards Marybeth! The lil buckaroo banners are as cute as can be and I think they totally count! WOW what a great spot this was to enjoy the water, looks amazing. Hope to get there some day ;)

  6. Marybeth, can't believe how much I've missed seeing your beautiful work. Must learn how to flag(?) your blog. The first card is so your style, elegant and stunning and the darling buckaroo card, clever and going into my pins!
    Now it's my turn to say "you were in my neck of the woods".
    I think we were in Bass Lake while you were in Yosemite!

  7. Such a cute card, Marybeth. Love the patriotic colours and the little cowboy images x

  8. Love the fun western banner!! What a beautiful spot you had all to yourselves!!

  9. Hello Mary Beth
    what a lovely place to be in Yosemite.
    the nature is there magnificient and what a lovely time you had there.
    and your card is a real beauty.
    have a nice week and hugs to you.

  10. this is just too darn cute! Your sweet little buckeroo card is about as sweet as they come. I simply love it. Your mojo card is fabulous too with all the red, white and blue. Have a happy 4th!

  11. Both of your cards are just fabulous. You did a great job with the Mojo Monday sketch, which I thought was a tough one. And, your cowboy banner card is so adorable. Yosemite looks beautiful--I haven't been there for so long.

  12. Your patriotic card is so Wonderful - especially the flowers with the star brads! The lil buckaroo is just FANTASTIC!

    Happy July 4th, Marybeth!

  13. Happy 4th of July Marybeth and family! Love the vacation pictures! So beautiful there!

    And your cards are both so wonderful!

    I think the card for paper sweeties is so very clever and a winner! Cutest banner I have ever seen!

    And I love the mojo Monday card so much too! It is a patriotic beauty! :)

  14. Happy 4th...
    hope it's been full of family and fun for you! :)
    And what great cards!
    Love your take on Mojo Monday...
    of course I'm lovin' the navy ;)...
    and what a fun take on the banner challenge!
    Looks like you had a wonderful time with your family and what a gorgeous spot! :)

  15. OMG, Marybeth ... this card is FANTASTIC and so clever! WOW! I may start getting up at 3 am if that's what I may be inspired to create!!! I just love your take on the sketch ... thanks for sharing your work with us this month at Paper Sweeties :)

  16. Both cards are fabulous! And, beautiful vacation photos. Hope you had a wonderful vacation! Great take on the Paper Sweeties sketch! Love how you used the buckaroo stamp set, so creative! Thank you so much for joining in on the challenge this month at Paper Sweeties!

  17. What a great job you did with the Mojo sketch--too many layers for me but you still kept it looking clean and crisp. :) And such a cute idea on your second card!

  18. Awesome pics! Looks like a fun time with some family. ;-) Your cards are great. I like the cowboy card - not bad for 3am! Our smoke alarm is like that, too. I think they purposely program them to only low-battery chirp in the middle of the night. It's the only thing that makes sense to me.

  19. Such fun cards! I'm loving all the gingham and twine you've been using on your cards lately. And I'm so glad you posted pictures from your vacation...I just knew it would be beautiful. :)

  20. OMGosh, Marybeth, thanks for sharing! You were in Paradise!!

  21. Just had to stop by and tellk you how much I LOVE what you created with the Paper Sweeties Stamps! Congrats on being a Feature Friday!
