Mojo Monday #386

It's Tall and Skinny week over on the Mojo Monday blog and I love making these cards!

For today's card I pulled out two of my favorite Verve sets:  Dream Big and Kind Words.  I simply adore the sentiments and flower images in both sets and they compliment each other wonderfully.

Working through my older paper pad sets and since MME's Lime Twist was still on my desk I used it again.  The cute bird paper is mostly covered up, but since the robins are back in our neck of the woods (along with the woodpecker who is merrily banging away on our metal exhaust vent on the roof as a territory marker) it was a must do.  Paired them with a flower and butterfly - more signs of spring!  The sentiment is one I adore and love adding to cards.  It is so easy to think nice things about people but never verbalize them.  This wonderful sentiment allows you to encourage and uplift others, plus, with my favorite word "joy" included in the mix, I am on happy lady :)

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.

My daughter's diving lessons are moving along.  She has driven us to and from Costco twice now.  Lots of nerves on busy streets still, but she is getting more confident every time we head out and I am more relaxed wink, wink!

Wishing you a day filled with joy and thank you for being a joy to me!

Beautiful colors and love the large pop of color that the turquoise flower makes! Great sentiment!

Benzi said...

Wow! That flower is beautiful, Marisa, and so is your card.
Robins have come back to our area, too. A few stick around all winter, but many have arrived now...with the black birds. The black birds, for the most part, will move on a little later.
I'm glad the driving lessons are going well. Breathe deep! :-)
