Mojo Monday #293

Mojo 293 Verve photo Mojo293picA.jpg

Another fabulous Mojo Monday sketch by Julee this week.  Loved the mix of elements on this sketch.

I found a wonderful Teresa Collins 6 x 6 pack at my LSS a few weeks ago and had great fun using it on this card.  Love the mix of patterns and opted to use red as my highlight colour.  Still swooning over Verve's Let It Be set from last week's release!  So many fabulous sentiments and mixes of fonts!  I doubled up on the sentiments by using "life is beautiful" from the Sunny Days set and turned it into one of my life's motto :)  So much of life comes from the little things, and the culmination of them is what makes life beautiful.

I crimped the yellow circle for a bit of texture, but you can't really see it in the picture.  I always enjoy using the Pennant Trim Die and still swoon whenever I use the Flutterby die.  Boy, I'm doing a lot of swooning today!  See what Verve Stamps and dies do to me LOL!

Thanks for popping by today!  I'm taking a deep breath and exhaling as things are finally slowing down a bit.  Mom is home and feeling much better and the crunch job for hubby's office is almost done.  Phew! That was a crazy couple of weeks!
