Mojo Monday #478

Happy New Year everyone!!!  We are back with more fabulous Mojo sketches for 2017, and since this is the first sketch of the month, we are starting the new year off with a contest.  The more entries the greater your chances of winning some free Verve :)

I pulled out some scraps from my favorite MME paper pad, In Bloom, added a pop of colour with the red.  After three snowfalls in three weeks -- no great accumulations in our area (most we had was four inches), but it is a novelty around these parts as we have had snow three times in three weeks and are usually lucky to get it once a year!  In addition, it usually only lasts for a day if we are lucky before it turns to rain and washes away, not so this time.  All that to say, I pulled out my life verse (Phil 1:6) found in Scripture Medley 3 and the paper colours lead to a flower and a butterfly - a tribute to spring I think ;) - so went with them.

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.


We had a gloriously relaxing Christmas and it was exactly what the doctor ordered.  Lots of fun family time, puzzle making, jammie days purging the basement, reading late into the night and simply enjoying not having an agenda.  Happy sigh....  New Years was also quiet (I am not a big New Year's girl) and I had a wonderful time reflecting on the past year, counting my blessings, and deciding on what I wanted to focus on in 2017.   Still working on my word for 2017 as I have a few bouncing around in my head (fitness - as I kind of fell off the bandwagon this year which is not like me at all!) and prayer.  Think I may go with two as they cover two very  important areas in my life.   How about you?  Do you have a word for 2017? Would love to know if if you do.

Cheers to a fabulous 2017, and I look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery!

A lovely colour palette, Marisa. They certainly evoke a feeling of spring. Here on Crete, we're experiencing a long spell of cold temperatures (below 10 °C), which is rather unusual for this area. Makes us feel really thankful that we have the luxury of central heating in our modern home. Happy New Year!

Beautiful card and such a powerful verse. So glad you had such a wonderful Christmas and new year. I'm a quiet new year's eve person too. Not sure on the word for this year. Still having a think on it!
