Mojo Monday #382

Mojo 382 photo Mojo382pic.jpg

It's tall and skinny week over on the Mojo Monday blog and I actually remembered to cut my paper the right size this week - yeah!

Pulled out some fabulous MME papers and went to work - a bit too much perhaps as I hardly have any white space on my card which is not my norm.  Heck, I even covered up half the circle LOL!  No overly fond of it as I find it too busy, but time was short so you get to see my faux pas wink, wink.       

The sentiment is from Verve's Love Notes set and I highlighted it by using brown half pearls on the horizontal banner.  Found this fabulous heart button in my stash and decided to add along with a strip of red for some visual interest on the bottom section of the card as I felt the sentiment was getting lost amid all the paper patterns.  

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.

Started teaching my daughter how to drive this weekend and boy was it strange seeing her in the driver's seat!!  She did very well for her first time, and the gated complex my mom lives in is the perfect place to practice as there is a nice big loop and very little traffic.  Once she is comfortable there, we will venture out onto the quiet streets in our neighbourhood.

Love your skinny Valentine! Don't envy you with starting driving practice! Recall it being rather nervewracking but I lived through 3 kids driving so that's encouraging - lol!

It's been a while since I've visited...good to be back. I love your card and all the wonderful papers. Your heart button is very sweet. Great card!!!
Oh no, I can't believe your daughter is at this point in her life. How time flies! Just wait until she leaves home alone for the first time. I sure remember that with my boys. Yikes!

Marisa, your gorgeous card makes *me* smile...all over my face, as Anita would say! Again, pretty papers and layers, all designed to let that fabulous sentiment shine! Perfect! Your daughter driving...oh my! They grow up far too fast! My Ms T will be five in just over a month. FIVE! Enjoy the bonding opportunities the lessons bring!
