Mojo Monday #434

Mojo 434 photo Mojo434pic.jpg

Had fun making this Valentine's Day card for my daughter.  She is a pink loving girl and also loves a bit of sparkle so this is what I came up with.  Most likely not quite girly enough for her, but unless I get a chance to make another this will be her card.

Adore this shimmer paper I found at my local dollar store!  This heart absolutely glistens in the sunlight.  Paired it with some pink polka dotted paper, a few buttons, some twine and a few sequins for added dimension and sparkle.  The sentiment is from Stronger Love.

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.



Going to be a tough week as my MIL is going in for bowel cancer surgery on Wednesday.  From what the surgeon says, she has lots of tissue to work with so they should be able to go in, remove the cancer and then reconnect her right then and there with no need for a colostomy bag - phew!!  That would be amazing and we continue to pray for that outcome.  On second thoughts, I think I will send this card with hubby to give to her to encourage her and remind her of how much we love her and are praying for her.

Have a fabulous week and enjoy the sketch!!

Your card is so country cute. I really like the buttons and ruffled edges. So sorry to hear about your MIL, but amazing how you look at the bright side..for it truly is a blessing she won't need a colostomy bag. I will say a pray for her too.
