Mojo Monday Week 90

It is getting so hot here in Georgia. It's already in the 90s, temperatures we rarely got to in Germany. I know it's here to stay for the rest of the summer. If I could stay inside all the time it would be fine, but that won't work with the boys. We're in the process of putting up an above ground pool which will be so nice when it's finished. We have to level the ground first and we still need more sand so I guess it won't be done until the end of the weekend :( I know the boys will ask constantly to go swimming, something neither of them know how to do! I really need to find out about swimming lessons for them because they both love the water so much.

Now on to the card. This is the first time I've participated in Mojo Monday. Thought I'd give it a try and see how I like it. Following a sketch makes things easier for me. I always have trouble deciding how I want to lay things out and sketches help a lot. I have to make a couple of Father's Day cards so I figured this would be a good opportunity. I mostly used Papertrey cardstock and patterned paper in Vintage Cream and Dark Chocolate. Good colors for a man's card.

Stamps: April Word Puzzle, June Word Puzzle (Close To My Heart)
Cardstock: Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Chocolate Remix, Bitty Star Basics (PTI)
Ink: Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream (PTI)
Accents: Sparkles (CTMH)
Tools: Star Nestabilities (Spellbinders); 3D Foam Squares (CTMH); Cuttlebug (Provocraft)

Thanks for looking,

I agree, I prefer to follow a sketch, saves the brain from straining too much, and I've just discovered card making, and Mojo Monday. This will be my second week.

Your card is great!
