Mojo Monday 198

It seems like...no, it has been ages since I've posted a card.  I have been busy redoing my stamp room...what a job!  My stamp room is a space in my daughter's former bedroom.  She got married last September, and although her bed and dresser are still here for when she and hubby Nic visit, I have taken any remaining space(and the room plus a laundry room, was made from 1/2 the garage, so it wasn't very big to begin with) and continue on in my quest to make the very most of the space I have .  I should have taken "before" pictures, but will take a couple pics when I have it done, to show you "my space"...I am pretty happy, so far.  It's amazing what you can do with a small space!!
I made a couple cards for MojoMonday 198...here's the sketch:
And, based on a look at a Pottery Barn catalog, while waiting in front of one of their stores the other day for my daughter, I was impressed with some outdoor furniture that was wooden with poppy red cushions:
Made with stamps from Annabelle, Verve(sentiment) and stems are RubberSoul. Stamped the same flowers with Versamark on the poppy panel for dimension.
I also decided on another set of stamps by Verve and made this card:
The sketch was pretty simple, which I loved, but the banners(ribbon) panels were a bit of a challenge for me. I wanted to make this sailboat a little more "girly" so used flowered dp and rose red for a base. Drew the lines around the square.

I will put both in the Mojo gallery...it was my fun in the midst of chaos!  Thanks for looking, have a great night.

Things I used:
Stamps:Annabelle, Verve , RubberSoul
Paper: Bazzill white, SU dp, soft suede, sahara sand, poppy parade, rose red
Ink: soft suede, stazon black, versamark
Extras:polka dot embossing folder , ek border punch, bird punch(leaves), brads, ribbon, Enamel Accents
