Mojo Monday #299

Mojo 299 photo Mojo299picA.jpg

It's round or square week over on the Mojo Monday blog, so that means I get to show you another round card.

Loved this sketch. SO many wonderful elements on it!  Julee truly knows how to work a layout :)

Kept with a black and white theme with a pop of colour as well as adding some of my favorite things to the card: Verve's Flutterby die, From the Heart dies, and polka dots via paper and embossing.  Yes, I' m a happy girl LOL!  The sentiment is one of the "thank you for your order" stamps Julee includes in your package when you order from Verve.  Just another wonderful extension of her fabulous client service and generosity!

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 once again (I need summer LOL!).  My son had his grad ceremony on Friday and we have ended an era of ten years at that school.  It was such a fabulous ceremony, with all the kids dressed up and looking fabulous.  I was so proud of my son as he received of the Service Awards!  Two of his best buddies also received one, which is fabulous confirmation that he hangs out with some great guys :)   I'm beaming and grinning from ear to ear as my daughter received the Citizenship Award when she graduated, so what we have been working hard to instill into our kids seems to be catching - a true reward in of itself!

A soccer game and a wedding shower filled Saturday and teaching Sunday School and working on hubby's rush job took care of Sunday. I'm feeling like I've been sucked into a black hole these past few weeks and I can't wait for July as both kids will be out of school and we can relax a bit!  It will most likely be another week of slim pickings here on the blog, but hope to make up for it once this week is over!  Thanks for your patience!!

Have a fabulous week and if you have never made a round card, I double dog dare you to try one {grin}!

Hi Marisa, just popping by to catch up with all your news and gorgeous cards. Seeing today's card has stirred my mojo so, who knows, I might get back in my craft room at the weekend! Congrats to your children and you too!

So beautiful, Marisa! Love the classic black/white combo and the pops of pink!

Yay for your son! And hang in there... July is just around the corner!

Wanda Cullen said...

This is such a striking color combo...LOVE the sweet card! Going to have to pin it so I can remember to use that combo! So glad you mentioned in your one post about switching from Google reader before 7/1. I think I made the switch to Feedly this evening but it was only one click and seemed entirely too easy! Sure wish I was a computer expert and didn't have to wing it with changes and wonder if I'm doing it correctly. :-(

Benzi said...

Your kids sound awesome. Good parenting seems to be paying off in a big way.
