Mojo Monday #281

Mojo 281, Verve photo Mojo281picA.jpg

This week's sketch was designed by Mary.  It is very much out of my "norm", but I found it was a lot of fun to work with.  Once I got going, it fell together quite quickly.  Just mix and match a few designer papers and you are good to go :)

Since I had a left over die cut heart in my ever growing "to be used later" pile, I decided to make a "love" card using non-traditional colours.  A little something to keep in my stash for a friend who needs to know they are being thought of and loved.  My beloved Swiss Dots made an appearance as did this border punch which I never even used on a Valentine's Day card this year - oops!!

You can check out all the challenge details over on the  Mojo Monday blog and 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.
  


Keeping it short and sweet today as I have to prep for my Diva premier tomorrow wink, wink.  Hope you'll join the Sneak Peak Blog Hops throughout the week

Have a fabulous day, and thanks for dropping by!
