Mojo Monday #399

Love making tall and skinny sketches and this sketch was perfect for a masculine "feel better soon" card I wanted to make for a member of our Bible Study who just had a knee replacement.   Hurts just thinking about it!

Used Verve's Feel Better Soon Plain Jane and added twine, stars and hardware to keep things on the masculine side.  Hope he likes it and can't wait to see him up and about again for a little while anyway, as the second knee is schedule for replacement towards the end of this year.

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.  

Have the week off work and the focus will be my on going assault on the basement (how do things magically appear down there LOL!) and if all goes well, some extra crafty time.

You are tops when it comes to these sketch challenges, Marisa! I really love this one in these smashing colors!!

A week off and, yummo, cleaning and organizing the basement sounds like heaven to me! Wish I could be there to help! (I'm kinda sick that way and love doing that stuff!) Don't work too hard now. We want you to have some fun crafty time, too! Hugs, Darnell

He's going to love this I'm sure! The stripes, the texture and the simple sentiment all combine into one terrific man-card!

How nice to have the week off. I like this get well card - peaceful and calming. I know people with knew replacements need calm things - the pain is tough. Love the banners. Hugz
