Mojo Monday #325

Mojo 325 photo Mojo325picA.jpg

I love seeing hearts on sketches :)  Maybe because I love hearts and am excited about moving on from snowflakes LOL.  Mind you, I'll use any excuse to use a heart on a card!

Just had to use Santa's List paper pad by Teresa Collins again - love the colour combo and patterns in it!  Just bought the tag die from Reverse Confetti and had to use it along with my beloved Jotted Heart die, to which I added one of the hearts from the Heart Quartet die.   Some ribbon, buttons, bling and twine added the accents I was looking for.

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.
 

Just one sleep before Christmas (we celebrate Christmas Eve!) and a fabulous roast beef dinner made by hubby.  My in-laws arrive tomorrow, and I can't wait to catch up with them. I am truly blessed with an amazing second set of parents!

Will be a bit quiet here for a week or so as I take time to enjoy time with family and friends -- and oh how I am looking forward to a jammie day or two as well as some puzzle making and reading!!  My year in review posts will start towards the end of this week, and you can see if you agree with my choices {grin}. 

Wishing you a blessed Christmas as you celebrate the birth of Christ with family and friends!  Hugs to all :)

Absolutely gorgeous card, Marisa! The colours, hearts, and tag - perfect combination! You're definitely inspiring me to dive into making a Valentine's Day card today, but must. exercise. restraint! A couple more days to finish up Christmas tags/cards and then...look out. New Year's, followed by Valentine's (and some shopping tucked in at some point, too!). For all your comments and beautiful cards: thank you! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

Marisa this is a beautiful card. Sweet tag. I love the hearts and the added bling.I may actually find some time to play along this week. I have been sad to have missed so many Mojo Mondays and VLV sketches this year.
I pray for a Very Merry Christmas for you and your family.

LOVE everything about this festive card! The chevron paper paired with black/red/white really makes this pop in the gallery! Don't you just love that RC die?! I used it for the majority of my gift tags this year. Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas!
