Life Is Good



Good morning, its Mojo Monday time; Julee has designed us another fabulous sketch. This is another one of my favorites, give it a try! I chose to use my new favorite set from Verve called Up, Up, and Away. These balloons are fabulous for coloring and for paper piecing. I luv to paper piece the balloons because you can get the real feel of Hot Air Balloons.
Check out these beautiful Hot Air Ballons they come in all sorts of designs, some of them are truly gorgeous. For the last ten years every July 4 a Hot Air Balloon celebration goes on at VMI in Lexignton, VA. DH and I ride the motorcycle and enjoy the day watching the balloons, listening to the music, eating, and of course watching the fireworks. Sorry, I got lost in the moment, on to my card for today.
I used SU chocolate chip, riding hood red, and pink pirouette. I used my Janome for sewing the two bottom panels. I sponged the main panel with chocolate ink, I added the Basicgrey pearls at the bottom in a cluster. I luv this, when I saw Julee's cards here and here with the pearls like that I knew I was going to try it, luv it! I finished it off with a "Life Is Good"sentiment. Enjoy your Monday and don't forget to head over to the Mojo Monday Blog to check out the other mojo makers fabulous creations!
