Having a Play Date With My Mojo
Mojo Monday sketch. I combined it with this week's Play Date Cafe challenge of black and white with a splash of lilac (or any other shade of purple). I love black and white cards, and adding a splash of colour to them is loads of fun.
As luck would have it, I picked up this black polka dotted Bo Bunny DP a few weeks ago and I knew I wanted to use it on this card. No Swiss Dots so have to use some sort of dots :)
Since Vintage Vogue was still out on my desk, I decided to use it again (twist my rubber arm LOL!). No matter what I did in Photoshop, the big flower looks much more blue than purple. It is actually Lovely Lilac and tones in with the ribbon very nicely in real life - honest! I added some leaves to the flower to cover the pin requirement on the Mojo sketch, and a few black half pearls were the perfect finishing touch.
Off to watch my son's soccer game this morning, and hopefully the rain will hold off!! Nothing like getting cold feet from the very wet grass on the sidelines and having my bangs curl with all the humidity in the air (not to mention the frizz frenzy the rest of my hair pulls on me....oh the joys of having curly hair....NOT!), but when falling rain is added to the mix, the little voice in my head boldly proclaims "Welcome to Winter soccer in British Columbia" LOL. Guess I'll have to do lots of yelling...."ahem"....cheering from the sidelines to keep warm and neutralize the aforementioned issues LOL! Ah yes, the life of a soccer mom :)
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!
