Mojo Birthday

Happy Tuesday! You would think it was Fat Tuesday with the way I ate blueberry muffins this morning. Man! They were good! Too bad hubby didn't nab any before the kids and I snarfed them down. If you have not tried the Duncan Hines "Twice the Blueberries' box mix, please do so. The little can of wild Maine blueberries makes them better than home made with fresh berries. I promise! Bake those puppies in silicone cups and you will have moist, fabulous muffins to die for!

So, did you come for the cooking show or the card? I thought so. Today's card is my offering for Mojo Monday Week #77. Those lovely ladies have given us another fabulous sketch to play with and I thoroughly enjoyed working with it. Since I can always use another birthday card around here, I made mine a bright and cheery birthday greeting. I chose papers from Martha Stewart's Playful Blue 12x12 Paper Pad. I used some of the pinks last week and loved them so I had to have the blue one too. Shhhh...no, I don't have enough patterned paper in spring colors but thank you for asking. ;)

I used some Stickles on the cherry and a spica pen on the sprinkles for a little sparkle but the spica doesn't really show in this photo. I promise it is there though! I added an extra circle to the original sketch because I just needed an extra something for my sentiment. That yellow space was too plain. This is an A2, side fold card, on a GA Pacific white base. As always, my supplies are listed below for those that are interested. If you don't make your own cards but would like to own this one, I will have it listed for purchase in my Etsy shop within a few days. If you don't see it when you look for it, please message me so I can list it for you. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
