Mojo Monday #495 Meets The Curtain Call

 photo Mojo 495pic.jpg

Welcome to the first Monday of the month which means it is contest time over at the  Mojo Monday blog :)   The more entries we get, the greater your chances of winning a Verve set of your choice!

I had this MME paper pad out on my desk still so decided to go with it, even though it has more of a fall versus spring colour theme.  I love fall colours and never tire of using them, though you may tire of seeing them {grin}.

This card combines this week's Mojo Monday sketch with the first Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge of the month called "Flutter".  If you know me at all, you know my love of butterflies, and I also love this butterfly die by PTI.  A match made in heaven :)   The sentiment is from Verve's Take Note.

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.

Our weekend was a 50/50 split.  Saturday was wet and rainy and Sunday was gloriously sunny - the weather is taunting us with spring something fierce!!   I bought a few Osteos to plant in my garden as I am dying for some pops of colour and I was finally able to mow the back yard for the first time this year!  Still a bit boggy in spots, but it had to be done as it is in a terrible state.  The winter snow and rain has done a number on it and it will take a lot of TLC to bring it back :(   The moss is having a rave party out there, so hopefully we can get it under control. 

Thanks for popping by and have a fabulous week!
