Fourth week of the month means round or square week over at the Mojo Monday blog. I just love making round cards so it's always a fun challenge week for me :)
I needed a birthday card so that became the theme for my card. I also took a slight detour from my fall themed cards (don't cheer too loudly) and went with a more spring/summer type card.
I can be a bit of a hoarder when it comes to certain paper pads, and MME's Lime Twist fits in that category. Crazy, I know. You'd think I would be itching to use them any chance I get, but I just hate the thought of them running out. So...I'm trying to change my mindset to "if you have it use it" and this wonderful paper became the "victim" of my new mantra. The rest of the card flowed from there.
Never made a round card? Why not give it a try this week! Trust me, you'll fall in love with them! Or, stick with a square card and enjoy creating one of them instead. All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you also get 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.
I am decompressing after a very busy weekend and it feels good. We had our family birthday dinner Friday night (we have three September birthdays and one August birthday), my son's soccer game early Saturday afternoon, then my daughter's birthday party that same afternoon and evening, and I wrapped things up by teaching the Grade 5/6 Sunday School class on Sunday. Phew! Too much weekend action for this old mama LOL!
Thanks for popping by today and I look forward to seeing your creations!
