Mojo Monday #295

Mojo295 photo Mojo295picA.jpg

Welcome to Mojo Monday's round or square week.  Always a favorite with me as I love making round cards.

Before I get into the details of my card, I want to wish Stephanie all the best as this is her last week as a Mojo Maker.  Her take on each week's sketch and fabulous details are always an inspiration to me!  However, she is still in blogland and you can always follower her on her blog here.

I wanted to go with a pink and brown color combination as it is one of my favorites and I haven't used it for a while.  It progressed into a baby card as I really wanted to ink up my new Verve To The Moon set.  Just love the critters in this set and the raffie was calling my name :)   I was hoping to find some baby pins in my stash, but they were very evasive, so I used a flower instead.

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.



Enjoyed a much more restful weekend and I'm almost feeling human again LOL!  Today, I get to hang out with my kids today as they have the day off school due to a  Professional Development Day for the teachers.  Think we will go visit our local nursery and buy all our annuals and them come home and plant them.  At least that is the plan.

Wishing you a great day, and thanks visiting my little corner of cyberspace today :)

I am feeling almost human again too - feels so good. I am sure hoping my youngest takes a while before she gets married - at least a few years! This card is sooo cute. I love the way you did the sketch and there are so many great layers and textures on this - not to mention that ADORABLE image. Love it! Hugz!

Sweet baby card, Marisa. Love your little smiling raffie. :)
I have no annuals in the ground yet..just in pots. The cool weather, rain, and travelling every weekend has gotten me far behind.
