Mojo Monday Sketch 142

I found myself with a little time on my hands today rather than being out in the full sun planting bedding plants.  We've been late putting plants in because of being away for May.  Rather hard to get interested in our poolside planters because our pool is a green slough.  Here in the Okanagan we are under severe water restrictions. City officials have given us the okay to fill  pools once -- but since we need a new liner, we have to wait for the pool company to fit us in.

A friend, (the same friend that fueled the fire for my addiction to Magnolias) gave me an image of Tilda With Glasses, hence the card for Mojo Monday.

The image was stamped with StazOn, so using my copics was out of the question.  I used distress inks and markers. I think I need to practice more.

Another friend told me the reason Magnolias do not have mouths.  Being angels,  they speak from the heart, thus do not need mouths.  All I know is that they are so darn cute, I have to have them all! 

Here is what I came up with for the Contest week for Mojo Monday.

I used designer paper from Me and My Big Ideas that I've probably had for a few years for the front and inside.
Flowers are Prima (aren't they beautiful?)
Sprigs behind the flowers are a Martha Stewart punch.
The tabs are cut from cardstock with spray adhesive applied, then dusted with perfect pearls. 
 The inside of the card says, "Just sitting here, thinking of you".

Thank you for stopping by to take a peek.  Comments are always appreciated.

Remember, stamp up a storm, ink up a wish, and send it on to someone to brighten their day.

Rubber hugs, inky wishes, Cricut chirps and Cuttlebug squishes,
