So blessed...

Hello friends! How is everyone doing?

I'm completely healthy again - praise the good Lord; but I have been so busy winding down the school year. The last few weeks, we have had 3 soccer games (per week) and 1 track meet (per week) - makes for some crazy times!

I haven't really had much mojo but I forced myself to stamp last night and guess what? I actually LIKE what I created!  :D

I used the Mojo Monday sketch (always a great place to jump start your mojo) and created a Mother's Day card which a friend had requested. I used LOTS of paper from My Mind's Eye Madison Avenue collection combined with lots of pink and chocolate - seriously, can't go wrong with those colors!

I distressed all the edges and then sponged on VersaMagic Jumbo Java. I die cut two hearts and stamped this fabulous sentiment (Just for You) from Verve Visual on the pink heart. I added 3 chocolate pearls and layered it over a cream lace ribbon/bow.

So glad you stopped by - have a GREAT week!

... thinking of you ...

Hugs,
