Mojo Monday #365

Mojo 365 photo Mojo365pic.jpg

It's tall and skinny week over on the Mojo Monday blog and Julee has created this fabulous sketch for us to work with.

Love banners on cards and I jumped at the chance to use some of my hoarded Stella and Rose MME papers.  Just adore this paper pack with all the wonderful fall colours and am quite stingy with using them LOL!

Another favorite of mine is this wonderful flower/leaf combination from Dream Big.  I never tire of using either of them.  Added a some twine and a bow along with a small sentiment tag from PTI to finish things off.

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.

We survived our first week of school after the teachers strike and an extended summer vacation, and are all tired to prove it LOL!!  It's been an adjustment to early mornings for everyone again, as well as adding my two days of work into the mix.  I have never had to leave the house for work since the kids were born (ran a daycare out of my house for ten years), but they are at the perfect age for this to occur and am feeling very blessed all round.

Beautiful take on the sketch Marisa.
Give me the same items to make a card and it would look nowhere near as fabulous as yours! xxx

So pretty, loving those hoarded papers of yours. ;)

I am glad you are enjoying your new work routine. Was thinking of you on Friday when I applied for a job at a chiropractic office (!). Fingers crossed!

So gorgeous, Marissa! And I adore that little tag with the heart! Love your colours and border. You always rock in my book.

Such a beautiful card. I love these papers. I love the added twine and tag (especially the punched heart). I'm glad you all survived your first week;) That must be quite a change for you going out to a job away from your home. I hope it goes well for you.
