Mojo Monday #361

It's the first Monday of the month and that means contest time over at the Mojo Monday blog.  With Verve's anniversary release having just occurred, this is a great opportunity to play along for a chance to win some brand spanking new Verve!

Love this new One Cup tea set and matching Cuppa Tea dies.  I paper pieced two of the cups and fussy cut the white tea tags to add to the cups.   Added some of this delicious polka dotted ribbon from the Pastel Ribbon Collection as well as a kraft and a vellum heart to fill in the white space above the cups.

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.  

Hard to believe it is the first of September!  Our summer flew by - greatly helped by the fact we had an amazing summer weather-wise.  Warm temperatures (sometimes too warm LOL), loads of sunshine, and if memory serves me correctly, we only had four days of rain over the entire summer!  That is pretty amazing for us out here on the West Coast!  Loved the extra time with my kids and it is always a jolt to the system moving back into our full, Fall schedule.  However, we do so with many amazing summer memories.  My mommy heart is full :)

To those who have Labour Day - enjoy the extra day off! 

What's In It?
Stamps: One Cup (Verve Stamps) 

Paper:  Designer Series Paper, Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery, Kraft, Going Grey (Stampin' Up)
Ink:  Black 
Accessories:  Cuppa Tea and Heart Quartet Dies (A Cut Above by Verve), Scalloped Circle and Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Pastel Ribbon Collection (Verve Stamps), Dimensionals

Sitting here drinking my coffee and catching up so I totally love this card Marisa. That velum heart is such a fun detail too - kind of mimics steam. This is one of my favorite cards you have made lately. I glad you had a wonderful Summer - hoping your Fall is just as nice! Hugz!

A lovely card, Marisa - the stack of tea cups is adorable! Again, you've created a mini work of art with the images, colours and patterns. As much as I think your card is amazing, the highlight of your post for me was "My mommy heart is full." What an incredible mom you are!!

I love the softness of the colors used and then the pop of the lime ribbon as an enhancement of the one cup. Beautifully done.
