Mojo Butterflies


Yeah, Canada won gold again!!!  I for one would not sign up to do the cross terrain skiing event, but then, I'm too old and conservative now LOL!    Add this win to our gold in the Ice Dancing the night before and we are a happy nation :D  One fun thing they are doing in Vancouver is change the colour of the Olympic rings by the water to the colour of the medal that a Canadian athlete wins on a given day.  The rings have been gold for two days now and it feels good :D  Okay, I now have the "I feel good na-na-na-na-na-na, just like I knew I would na-na-na-na-na-na-na" song in my head!   Bet you now do too LOL!
 
This week's mojo sketch provided another opportunity to go round or square even though I love round cards because time was short.  The first thing I thought of was to use a medallion for the diamond shape, but Wanda beat me to it.  You can see her lovely card here.  That meant I had to go to option B.  No better excuse for an opportunity to pull out my new SU butterfly die :D  This die may very well usurp my Swiss Dots embossing folder addiction LOL!  A piece of lovely, soft, floral DP started things off some half pearls and brads along with some ribbon finished things off nicely.  

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me :D
