Mojo Monday #259

Mojo 259

Julee has provided another wonderful Mojo Monday sketch.  I jumped at the chance to use more of my new Verve and some of this yummy Basic Grey paper I haven't cut into yet.

Had great fun using some yummy Fall colours, and a white gel pen for the little flourishes on the sentiment panel.  Something wasn't quite right, so I sponged the outside edges of the cream panel with Tim Holtz's Antique Linen Distress Ink and voila, it was exactly what the card needed.

Would love to have you play along with us this week! Just pop over to the Mojo Monday blog for all the details and a chance to view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples!   Should you wish more details on their cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.


Got to watch my son's first soccer game of the season in glorious sunshine this weekend, which is always a bonus!  Do believe I even got a bit of colour!  The warm weather always brings more parents out to the field to watch the game and it is great fun chatting away with them, cheering for the boys as they play and enjoying the beautiful part of the world we live in.  Soon enough we'll be donning umbrellas, hats, gloves, scarves and even snow boots on occasion, as well as dealing with pouring rain, wind, cold feet, numb fingers, and cold bodies.  Remind me again why I do this??  Oh yah.  I'm a soccer mom LOL!     
 
Thanks for popping by today and I look forward to seeing your creations!

Marisa, I love your sweet card and take on the sketch! Love the colors you used. Wishing you many more dry soccer days as I was a soccer mom for 18 years. And you know what? I miss those days of sitting in all kinds of weather (inculding snow)watching my kids play. So enjoy while you can.
