Mojo Monday #314

Mojo 314 photo Mojo314picA.jpg

It's the first Monday of the month and that means it is contest week over at the Mojo Monday blog!  For every 50 entries, one random winner will win a Verve gift certificate, so get your mojo on and come join the party!  Timing could not be better either as Verve had a new release just two weeks ago, so there are lots of new goodies in the store :)

I decided to make a baby card in celebration of Verve Diva Laurie having a baby boy this past Friday.  I immediaely thought of using a "baby bot" on my card and this image from the new Birthday Bots set was perfect.

I coloured him with Twinkling H2Os, used some old Stampin' Up DSP, and had great fun adding half pearls to his eyes and buttons to make them pop a bit.  This little guy just makes me smile, and I'm trusting he will make Diva Laurie smile too :)

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 the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.


Our whirlwind pace continues, with the added stress of my mom being in a car accident last Friday.  A guy tried to make a left turn at in intersection she was travelling through and ended up hitting her car.  Thankfully both she and the passenger she was taking to a medical appt. are just a bit sore from the impact.  Now we just have to wait for the verdict regarding the fate of her car.  Hoping it is mostly cosmetic damage and not a write off.

Needless to say, I'm very much looking forward to next weekend, because it's the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.  Good times with family and a long weekend to be able to rest up a bit - yeah!

I'm so happy your Mom and her passenger were o.k. in the accident.

LOL! That robot is so cute. I think he needs a cowboy hat and he'd look like a bandit robot. Great card!

This is adorable! So glad your mom wasn't hurt seriously!

ACK!!! Oh my goodness, I am glad that they are okay. How scary and a car can be fixed or replaced much easier than family. Hugs girlie...
