Mojo Monday #317

Mojo 317 photo Mojo317picA.jpg


Welcome to round or square week at the Mojo Monday blog.  I opted to go with the square sketch this week - switching it up to keep you on your toes wink, wink.

I fudged the sketch a bit as I wanted to use my leaf dies again before the Christmas rush begins.  More yummy fall coloured papers and a double sentiment using stamps from Lean on Me and Chevron Love.

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 weather has been simply stunning this fall.  Blue skies and sunshine with gloriously coloured maple trees and other deciduous trees looking like torches on tree trunks.  Love it! I just stand and drink it all in any time I'm out.  Thus the tribute to fall with my card :) 

Thanks for popping by today and since I didn't make a round card this week, someone has to - how about you!!

Oh, your card really looks like Fall...such striking papers and those pretty Fall leaves.

Still waiting for the beautiful Fall to arrive here in my area of the Southern U.S. Leaves are now beginning to turn. Peak was supposed to be last week of Oct. Looks like we will have to wait for a couple weeks into November.

Beautiful fall card Marisa. Love those gorgeos leaves and the colors. The button is so cute. It was a quick fall for us... trees are almost bare now and it's pretty chilli.

Marisa, I just commented but it doesn't show and gave me an error message so I apologize if you have two from me - your card is good enough for two comments anyway! Love the leaves, papers, and sentiment. Your take on the sketch is so great - you are the sketch queen. Hugz to you!
