Mojo Monday Time ...

Hello Everyone and welcome to a new week and nearly a new month!
Since it is Monday and my mojo is lacking (again!)
I thought playing the Mojo Monday Challenge just might help
get my creative juices flowing.

Here's the sketch they have for us this week ...

And here's what I've created ...

My aunt is in visiting from Texas and is staying with my mom over in PA.
At the family reunion yesterday she asked about cards
and I told her I would make her up a variety before
she heads back home next week.
I think this card will be No. 1 of a dozen or so for her.

Everyone likes butterflies so I thought these would make
the perfect focus embellishment.
The design paper I have used is from the Prima 'Princess' 6x6 pack and even though this sheet is gorgeous (in my mind at least), it is a bit busy and can be difficult to use.  I this this particular sketch design worked perfectly to showcase this pretty paper.  As you see, a strip of images I needed to cut from the front panel was repurposed onto the inside sentiment panel. Love when that sort of thing works out so beautifully!

I hope you are having a wonderful start to your week!
Going to be VERY hot around N.E. Ohio this week (upper 80s all week)
so I'll probably just keep creating here in my 'crafting cave'!  LOL
