Today's Mojo Monday sketch was designed by Carole and I had fun playing with that large circle area. I gleefully opened a new paper pack from Michael's (which I got with a 50% off coupon - score!), and settled on these papers as they have two of my favorite things - flowers and polka dots.
I had fun using three wonderful Verve dies to embellish the large circle. Then, since the paper was rather busy, I pulled out one of my favorite sentiment sets, Lean On Me, as it has a nice bold font that showed up nicely against the papers. Things were a little off balance, so I added a second, complimentary sentiment with the banner and some faux stitching. Lots of Verve goodness on this card - happy sigh :)

We all survived our first week back with a full schedule again and are back into the groove, albeit we were all very tired by the time Friday rolled around! My son's soccer game got cancelled due to frozen turf (having lows of -5C and highs of 0C so the turf kept a deep frost and never thawed). Thankfully, there is a make up weekend in the schedule for times such as these so we'll get to play the other team in a month. Bonus: over two hours of extra time to do things at home and not freeze my buns off on the sidelines LOL!
Have a fabulous day!
