Sparking the Mojo with friends

Yesterday my PSF, Allison, said she was lacking some MOJO.  Whenever I'm losing my MOJO I tend to turn to challenges to get me creating.  So I challenged her to create using the Blogger's Challenge theme from yesterday along with the FTL125 layout.  While I challenge her, I thought I should put together a card as well.

I can't wait to see what she creates!

My card I pulled out some October Afternoon papers as I needed to make a masculine birthday card for another friend-her husband is turning 90 next month and she's trying to collect 90 cards for him to open.  If you are interested in sending him a card, you can e-mail Sue for the address to send it to.  I would love to see him have 90 cards, what a MILESTONE!

I thought the Greetings4Birthday with the Back2Basics sets would be a good masculine set to use.  I love the designs in the Back2Basics set and the sentiments in the Greetings4Birthday which are perfect for any type of birthday.

I kept the inside simple as I wanted to write a message.

If you feel like joining us, jump on in and play along.
