Mojo Monday #463

Mojo 463 photo Mojo463pic.jpg

It's a tall and skinny sketch week this week, and I had great fun creating my hubby's birthday card with it.

I used the arrow image from the Better Together to create the background on the Kraft panel and the Pennant Trim Die for the side panel as some celebratory banners on the card.  I cased this idea from Wanda's fabulous card using this sketch.  The Starry die and Flag It die set completed the embellishments on the card.

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.

Happy to be enjoying a week off work this week :)   I'm in "search and destroy" mode and plan to do a lot of basement purging and the likes as I just haven't had time to anything so far this year due to our very busy schedule.   Started on the weekend and it feels wonderful, especially when the family pitches in as well.   Will also be a busy week getting ready for school to start and doing some campus orientation with my daughter on the weekend as she will be heading to university in September.  Not an overly relaxing week, but I know I will feel tons better once many things are crossed off my To Do List :)

What's In It?

Paper: Kraft, Certainly Celery, Early Espresso, Night of Navy, So Saffron (Stampin' Up)
Ink: Black, VersaMark

What a fabulous b-day card for your hubby! Enjoy your week "off" though it sounds pretty packed with plans! Purging and rearranging always makes me feel so much better - lol!
