Mojo Monday #294

Had great fun using this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  Since I need a few more teacher appreciation cards, I jumped at the chance to use this sketch to make one.  

I used the alphabet background stamp from Verve's new Take Note set to create the white background on the kraft panel.  Love the new   Teachers Count set, and  used it for the rest of the elements on my card:  a row of red apples stamped across the panel in lieu of the scalloped element on the sketch, for the sentiment on my "black board" (which I created using Rounded Scallop Frame die) and the extra apple which I couldn't resist adding using the matching Apples Die set.

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.


Busy weekend with my son's soccer tournament. Two wins to date and two more games to go today.  Thankfully the weather is cooperating and the rain is bypassing us :)  Fingers crossed for more wins!  Off to do some chelling (cheering and yelling LOL)!

Wishing you a great day, and thanks for popping by today!
