Travel Card + Mojo Monday

Yesterday I shared a card I made using the April Stamp of the Month and the Wanderful paper packet. Today, I'm sharing another card featuring the Wanderful paper packet, but with a totally different stamp set.  In fact, this stamp set comes in the Wanderful Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go (which includes the Wanderful Paper Packet, an Exclusive Stamp Set, extra cardstock, the Wanderful Assortment, Black Arrow Washi Tape, and an Instructional Brochure).  Why not use those stamps to make cards with your left over papers?

The inspiration for this card came from this week's sketch at Mojo Monday.  I used it to create a 7" x 5" card.  I've included a products used list, complete with links and photos at the end of this post.


One little fun tidbit to note is that I used my black alcohol marker to color the arrow details (triangle durables) and enamel stars.  I wanted them to be black so I just pulled out my trusty marker and went to town.  You can use our alcohol markers to color any non-porous embellishment. Cool beans!

Just Because Card with the April Stamp of the Month + Southern Utah University Red and White Game

4" x 4" card by Karen Pedersen

Happy Monday!  It's been longer than usual since my last post. Sorry about that!  Last week was crazy and then we went to watch our son, Tannon and the Southern Utah University Thunderbird football team at the annual Red and White Spring Game. Tannon quarterbacked the red team. He did a great job!  It was fun to watch.  More about that after I talk about this card.

I created this card with the April Stamp of the Month (Typed Note).  This set is only available in April and can be yours for only $5 ($12.95 savings) with each $50 you spend (before shipping and tax). Spend $100, get 2...and so on.  If you are ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before you check out.  For your convenience, I've included a complete product list of what I've used on this card, complete with photos and links, at the very end of this post.

Now, back to our weekend and football.  If you've been a follower of my blog for very long, you know that we are a huge football family.  My father played college football, my hubby did, and all 3 of our boys have or will.  Last year was our oldest son, Easton's senior year at Southern Utah University. He finished his career there as the #7 all-time receiver at SUU. Tannon, our 2nd son, is playing there now and our 3rd son, Dawson (currently serving a mission in Sydney, Australia) will also return from his mission and play at SUU. Tannon is a red-shirt sophomore and is a quarterback. His first 2 years of college have been hampered by injuries and 3 surgeries. It has been a frustrating thing, after never having been injured before college.  He was so excited to be healthy for the annual Red/White Spring Game.  He was the quarterback for the red team and did a great job.  Since  he served a 2 year mission for our church directly after high school and has spent the first 2 years of his football career injured, it's the first time he's been on the field, other than practice, for about 5 1/2 years.  Let's hope he stays healthy and is ready for the real season this Fall.   I can't tell you how good it was for this mom to see her son out there doing what he loves again.

Note: You'll notice that Tannon is in a green jersey, although he is quarterbacking the red team.  Both the red team and white team quarterbacks were in green jerseys for the game. Tannon is #10.

After the game lots of the boys came up for autographs. So cute!
This little guy wanted his football signed.
We had lots of friends and family there for the game.
