Mojo Monday #392

It's the first Monday of the month and that means it is contest time over on the Mojo Monday blog!  The more people who participate, the greater your chances of winning some Verve, so come on over and join the fun!

With spring in the air, I am still in baby mode so decided to use this fabulous sketch to make a baby card for my stash.  Emery came out to play, and no, he doesn't have the chicken pox {grin} just some co-ordinating polka dots lol.  The sentiment is from To The Moon.

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. 


Had a fabulous Easter weekend with good family time as well as some much needed down time (I'm still not quite sure where January through March went!).  Easter is always a deeply moving time of reflection for me.  It's the flip side of Christmas - you can't have one without the other as they are intricately tied together.  Without Easter, Christmas would be meaningless.  Each year I am humbled and deeply moved by the sacrificial death of Christ - his gift to me - and tears of thankfulness always flow.  A special time to reflect and drink deep of the life-breathing gift for my soul...undeserved...yet freely given....and so very, very precious....He has risen indeed!

Enjoy the sketch and fingers crossed you are selected as one of the winners this month!

This is so cute and glad you said that was not the chicken pox on that elephant. :-) You know I love those dots, though.
I can tell you had a wonderful Easter....the most special time for Christians.

What a sweet card. I'm loving the polka dots.
It's good to hear you had such a great Easter weekend with your family. I so agree with you....that Christ would die for our sakes. We can have everlasting life because of His sacrifice. What a reason to celebrate. Praise God! He is risen indeed!
