Mojo Monday #329

 photo Mojo329picA.jpg

Teresa has provided this week's Mojo Monday sketch and once again it gives you all sorts of wonderful options.

I decided to make a masculine Valentine's Day card as I will need one for my son and one for my hubby.   The sentiment is from Stronger Love and the hearts are from the Heart Quartet die.  Just about killed me not putting ribbon on this card so I passified myself by using silver half pearls LOL!

All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also 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.  
 

Had much nicer weather for my son's soccer game this weekend (aka:  no torrential rain), and the family birthday dinner was great.  Always good to gather with family, especially when mom is cooking :) 

Have a great day!
