Mojo Monday courtesy of RAK

Yay for summer vacation and getting to make a Mojo Monday card on a MONDAY! I'm also smiling for the sun that is shining down brightly for the third day in a row.

I was able to make my card thanks to some RAK I recently received. Susan sent me a few fences punched out with her Martha Stewart punch after I saw this card. I've always loved picket fences, but can't imagine weedwacking around it every week! The flowers actually came from Susan too, in blog candy I won this winter. I got this fabulous sentiment from LeAnne which she used on this card, way back in May. It's stamped beautifully but I guess in the case of picture taking today, the sun is my enemy. Perhaps I'll fix it later. The white background piece was the back of a wedding shower invitation that I stuck away knowing it would come to good use. I just love recycling!

Well I'm off to my mom's for a bit to do laundry...hope this is the start of a week full of stampin, leading up to my washing machine arriving on Friday!


Paper: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, unknown green, unknown pink

  1. Such a pretty card. Love the fence border and the lovely poetry. Thanks for playing! :)

  2. Ooh, glad you were able to use the sentiment!

  3. Caryl, Very cute card! Isn't it nice to have so many thoughtful friends? This blogging world has introduced me to so many wonderful folks like you! Love your card - thanks for sharing!

  4. You can do your laundry but I'm not folding it.


  5. Very pretty, Caryl! I love the picket fence :~)

  6. love the elegant simplicity of this card. Just gorgeous!

  7. This is beautiful! The sentiment is perfect for a flower garden theme. And how creative of you to re-use an invitation. I save stuff like that too but then never remember where I put it once I get the inspiration to use it.

  8. So beautiful and bright. Perfect for a summer day..Loz

  9. Hi Caryl, Great card and wonderful friends. I love the fence and the sentiment is fantastic. My little flower that folds and unfolds would go great with this sentiment. If you would like me to send you some and the directions I would be happy too. I got the directions for it today in a news letter and I love making them. Just email me your address.
    Thanks for the two new blogs. Susan and LeAnne have great stuff. I am going back there right now.

  10. I LOVE that picket fence!! And the sentiment! Good for you doing a Mojo on a Monday LOL I did too!
    Great card.
