Mojo Monday #316

Mojo 316 photo Mojo316picA.jpg

It's time for another Mojo Monday sketch and I loved working with this week's sketch.

The sentiment is from Verve's Each Day set from their recent release.  I just love the verses in this set and the wonderful cross and butterfly images.

The sentiment I used is a portion of the Matthew 6:34 verse and I added the filigree image below it.  Thankfully, I am not much of a worrier by nature. However, one can never be reminded often enough that worry saps you of today's joy and energy, and in all honesty, will do absolutely nothing to change tomorrow.  Carpe Diem (seize the day) all the way!

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.


My poor mom is having a hard go after her car accident.  Her car was a write off, so we have to find her a new car (thankfully the payout was very good), she has a concussion and is a bit diddled because of it, and is very, very stiff and sore.  If any of you are the praying type, I would greatly appreciate your prayers for her health and recovery.

Thanks for popping by today and hope you get time to play along with this week's sketch.
