Mojo Monday #296

Mojo 296 Verve photo Mojo296picA.jpg 

It's the first Monday of the month, which means it is contest week over on the Mojo Monday blog,  One winner will be chosen at random for every 50 entries. You have the chance to win a Verve stamp set of  your choosing so be sure to get your entries in!!! 

I recently purchased MME's Quilting Bee paper pad and decided to break it in :)   Had an itch to make a masculine card so I pulled out Verve's Strong Anchor set and paired it with with the adorable sailboat from Text Objects.  The white background panel is scored for some texture, but hard to see in the picture.  Kept to black, grey and white with a pop of turquoise as I love the boldness of the colour combo.   Think I may give this card to hubby to remind him how he is our family's strong anchor and how we appreciate him for it :)

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.


Hard to believe it is June already!!  We are almost half way through the year!  June is always a very busy month with it being the last month of school, so I know it will be over before I know it!  However, today is here to be enjoyed so capre diem it will be :)
