Mojo Monday #407

Mojo 407 photo Mojo407pic.jpg

Today is the third Mojo sketch of the month and for today's card I pulled out a sheet of Hello Spring paper by Echo Park.  Just love this paper with its combination of green, yellow, pink and purple.

Combined it with a the butterfly and sentiment from Sparkly Dreams and the matching Butterfly Dreams die. A few leaf springs added a bit to the butterfly and as did a few sequins to the sentiment panel.  Also used a white gel pen to add a touch of white to the butterfly for a little something.

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.


It has been quite the week here....got a call from my daughter from London last Sunday sobbing so hard she couldn't speak.  Turns out she had the flu, felt horrible and wanted to come home.  It was day one of her two week trip to Europe with a group from her school - not a nice way to start a trip!  They ended up taking her to a walk in clinic to get her checked out, doc gave her some meds and sent her on her way.  She missed the first day of tours etc. as she was too sick to do anything, she struggled through day two, and thankfully, by day three was beginning to feel better and started eating again.  Lots of phone calls, tears and "you can do this, just work through it one day at a time" from us.  Did quite the number on my mommy heart to say the least!   

She is back in full health now and enjoying her trip - other that having very sore feet from all the walking and being a bit home sick.  Thank goodness for Facebook and cheap calling rates to Europe!  Miss her dearly, can't wait to see all her photos (she has taken 520 so far and still has four days to go LOL) and hear about all her adventures and hug her to bits when she gets home!

Such a lovely card, Marisa. I have just begun a new (to me) book about Lincoln, so I was happy to see this quote as a stamp! Hope you have a wonderful week. :)

Oh my...your poor daughter! I'm so glad she's feeling better! When we traveled to Nepal (6 years ago), the last few days of our trek were marred with me becoming exponentially sick. NOT fun in the least, especially since we were walking every day. I wished I could have called my mom! Even though my husband was with me, doing his best to help me out, there's nothing like words of comfort from mom! Your card is lovely (yes, I'm repetitive, but it's your fault *grin*....your cards are ALL awesome!) and again, the butterfly has me swooning! If our dollar were better and shipping just a wee bit lower, I'd be adding a WHOLE lot of Verve to my collection. Saving, saving...

Beautiful card Marisa. Love the colors/papers mix and the fun sentiment. So glad your daughter stuck it out - she will cherish those memories forever (just not the flu days). Hugz
