Mojo Monday Sketch # 106

A new card has been created for the Mojo Monday Sketch #106 - so it must mean that another Monday has arrived and gone.  I love the Verve set "Because of You" and I also love Cameo Coral cardstock (SU) - so here it is - my take on Sketch 106 from here.   Of course I had to change it a tad......because my stamp that I wanted to use looked more interesting stamped diagonally.  Hope you like it.  I also noticed in my scan that one of the little seed pearls is missing.......  yep, you guessed it - it got devoured by my scanner - there should be 3 instead of just two.  and............ I promise I will get better in putting this little blog of mine together -- I need help!

Mojo Monday Sketch 104

Holy Moly!  Second Week of my participation in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and I'm actually posting my card!  Following a sketch looks so easy, but looking at my desk and seeing what a mess I've created pulling paper and inks out, I finally decided that this had to be it -- no more time to spare.  So, here  is.  Sketch Challenge # 104 - here
and below is what I created........
The stamp is one of my favourites, given to me by a friend who recently moved away.  It is sad to have a stamping buddy leave, but it was the right time for her to move closer to her children and grandchildren.  I will miss her.

Hope you have a "mojo" day!

Of course I had to be different and turn it upside down..............  because dragonflies don't swim....LOL  I will be giving this to my nephew for his Birthday on the 18th.  He's a "rancher / cowboy" but he also loves to fish.

Well I actually completed a card for the Mojo Sketch Challenge. It is simple, but it fills the requirements. Mojo Monday Sketch Blog  has been my all time favourite site.
check it out at:  http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com/ 

I also received my very first order from Verve Stamps today. Julee added a "free" Thank you so much stamp with my order and..........  my order came packed in gift wrap tissue.  Made me feel special.  I do love the simplicity of the stamps.

I'm off to play with my new stamps!  TTYL
