Mojo Monday #366

It's the first Monday of the month and that means it is contest time over on the Mojo Monday blog and Julee has created this wonderful sketch to work with.

I needed a masculine card for a neighbour to say a HUGE thank you for the very special gift he gave my son and hubby.  He won a draw for two tickets to enjoy watching the Vancouver Canucks hockey team warm up before their game from their penalty box!  That is ice side and a once in a life time experience.  He and his wife were unable to go and knew my son would be over the moon to be able to go and he is indeed.  Game is not until the end of the month so the anticipation can build LOL!  We are blessed to have such amazing neighbours :)

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.


Was soooo grateful for a much quieter weekend and a big sleep in Saturday morning after an insane week last week.  Mom is still in hospital as they continue to try to get her body to retain sodium so her levels are where they should be.  However, when you change one thing there is a chain reaction so it is finicky work to get everything to balance and work together again.  I'm ever so grateful for the fabulous, local hospital we have and the staff we have been blessed to interact with!  I sleep well knowing mom is in good hands :)

Make sure you come back in a few hours for Day 1 of the Divas showcasing one of the stamp sets from Verve's Saturday release and a chance to win a $30 Verve gift certificate!

What a wonderful opportunity for your son and husband; amazing neighbours indeed - and that reflects back to you, for being a thoughtful neighbour to pass this stunning card on to them. They'll be delighted! Hope your mom's sodium issues balance out; sending prayers and positive vibes to you to share with her.
