Hoppy Birthdaaaayyy and Hoppy Mail for You!

No one has a birthday here at my place (but if it is your birthday, or if you just want to let me know when your birthday is, leave a comment here and I'll choose a random number on Monday morning and send you this card and some goodies inside the card too!) I don't know what you do with images that you stamp and start working on but then determine your project just "isn't workin for ya", but I leave mine laying on a small table next to my workspace. Sometimes I get sick of looking at them and they end up in the trash, and other times I glance at them periodically and they start to grow on me. Sometimes I even pick them up and try again. That is what happened with this image from CC Designs set Froggie and Friends. I created this image with the balloons and the stretched out frog. I thought he looked like he was flying so I added the balloons and colored him in. After water coloring I added some spots to give him some personality and promptly sat him on my table for a couple weeks. Tonight I picked him up and a both the strip of patterned paper and the scalloped edge and put this card together lickity split! Stamping Mo-Jo isn't a made up word you is an honest to goodness "thing". This story is just evidence that sometimes your "mo-jo" isn't in the right place and then other times it just works out!
