Just Adding Ink To My Mojo
It's the first Monday of the month so that means it's contest time with a chance to win some free Verve over on the Mojo Monday Sketch Blog.
I combined this week's sketch with a Just Add Ink colour combo from last week. I somehow never seem to get to this challenge in time...maybe next week!
This wonderful Verve flower hasn't seen some ink in a while so out it come. Love how you can turn it into a flower or a butterfly. The sentiment was a perfect fit for the white space that was left and since I don't own any Rose Red ribbon I crimped a strip of paper to use instead. I played around with a ton of options for the artichoke panel and nothing seemed to work so I defaulted to my card making crutch, Swiss Dots. Not thrilled with the look, but I just couldn't get anything else to work so they stayed.
This weekend is Thanksgiving for those of us who life in Canada. I always love reflecting on what to be thankful for - especially easy and enjoyable for a "glass half full" type of person :)
Since I don't know if I'll have time to create and post this weekend, I just want to tell you how thankful I am for each and every one of you who takes some time out of your busy day to drop by and read my ramblings, leave me a comment, or simply just drop by (((hugs))). It is food for the card makers soul :) You bless me daily, and I have so enjoyed getting to know many of you on a deeper level.
Have a blessed weekend and I'll make sure I eat some turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberry, cherry pie etc. for those of you who aren't celebrating this weekend :D
