Mojo Monday #318

Mojo 318 photo Mojo318picA.jpg

It's the first Monday of the month and that means contest week, and Julee has given us a great sketch to work with! 

Love using tags on cards, and if you have been around here for any length of time, you know I love hearts!  So needless to say, this card was a whole lot of fun to make!

I took the sketch very literally this time round.  The background paper was calling my name and I used the Wavy Heart Die for my  hearts (love this heart shape!).  Some ribbon, a button and a touch of crimping finished things off.

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.


I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed my extra  hour of sleep Saturday nigh LOL!  Very needed and much appreciated.   Now that Halloween is over, I'm sure the stores will be in Christmas mode before I can blink, and so the countdown begins!

I think your literal interpretation is perfect! When I saw the sketch, I thought it would be a perfect way to use some desigher paper that I just got. I have just now printed out the sketch and can't wait to try!

Gorgeous card Marisa. I love those hearts and that wonderful sentiment.The fun DPs you've used make this such a cheery card. I love this new Chevron Love set and matching dies and am so thrilled to have won them :) :) :)I can't wait for them to arrive in my mailbox so I can start creating with them.
This is a great sketch. I have missed so many in the past few months along with the VLVs which makes me sad but I actually think I may be able to do this one this week.
Whew, sorry to get so long winded.

Gorgeous card. The thing that stands out the most to me is the one crimped heart and the one not. What a fabulous design feature.
