Mojo Monday #384

Mojo 384 photo Mojo384picB.jpg

It's Monday and that means lots of Mojo fun with this sketch by Julee.

Still squeezing in some Valentine's Day/love themed cards as I 'm not quite ready to give up using hearts on my cards just yet - sorry to those who are sick of them {grin}.

Lots of hearts on his card, more than originally intended, but they worked so I went with it.  The sentiment is from Stronger Love and the heart is from the Wavy Hearts die set.

I wish I could get dark brown to show up rather than appear as black on my pictures - ugh!   So frustrating as it can change the feel of the card entirely.  If anyone has any tips to help me out, I am open to suggestions!!

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.


Today is Family Day here in British Columbia, so we are going to enjoy hanging out together :)  Love my kids to death, and it is always such a treat to have hubby in the mix for the day as well as he often works long hours.

Marisa I love the corrugated heart--keep the hearts coming, I am not sick of them. I feel your pain about photography and browns--and pinks too!

Don't have any tips for you, but it's a gorgeous card either way! Love that embossed heart BG! I totally misinterpreted last week's CTD challenge color as black instead of navy. :-/

This is so beautiful. I love that it is full of hearts........never too many hearts in my opinion;) Your crimped heart is so pretty.
Enjoy your day with your family:)

A beautiful sentiment, beautifully showcased! xxx

Just the sweetest card...love the crimped heart and that wonderful sentiment. I have trouble, too, with the black/brown issue. I think strong, strong light over all the card is the answer. Where the light is brightest on my cards, it shows brown but the other part shows black. I guess I need a better lighting setup.
