Mojo Monday/MOJO270- Merry Christmas


Good morning mojo friends, Mojo Monday is the best part of Monday's, don't you think?  I luv the first Monday of the month too, you know why? Yep, it is contest week over at the Mojo Monday Blog and we can't wait to see what you  create!  This weeks sketch was designed by Carole Burrage and yes I turned it...lol.  I had such fun designing this card, I used two of the latest Verve stamps sets; Holiday Greetings and Merry & Bright.  I also used the Friday MashUP inspiration photo, luvin the glitter in the photo, so I pulled out the SU glimmer paper, a all time favorite of mine!  I am counting the days until Christmas break, my work place shuts down for the holidays and we looks so forward to it every year, a true blessing!  I still have baking to do and plan on getting with girlfriends for our annual Christmas baking day...such fun!  I cannot wait to see what you create with this weeks sketch...enjoy!

  3. Lovely card - great interpretation of the sketch and photo. I like the strong contrast between the black and pale blues. I'm retired now but I do remember anticipating that holiday break so well. And now I appreciate that quote even more, though with 65 years behind me it's really hard to not look back :) Elizabeth

  4. Each week I try to guess whether you will be flipping the sketch or not ;) Love the colour combo - the black just pops and love the cluster of circles and hearts. Wonderful take on the sketch.

  11. Hello dear lady,
    It's lovely to be back with you and seeing your fabulous creations again. I adore todays card very much, the colours are lovely and I love that you turned the Mojo sketch, it has given it a totally different appeal.
    I do hope you are well and looking forward to the Christmas season. I am a little behind but my daughter and I have at last started making our tags and decorations. It's lovely having Sian with me as it encourages me to get back crafting again. No cards yet but hopefully soon.
    Best wishes. Big hugs Linda xx
