Mojo Monday 179

It has been quite a while since I've done a Mojo challenge.  I just love holidays because it gives me a chance to catch up on some badly needed therapuetic-create time.  So, below is the sketch.  I just love the sketch all by itself!

Now, here is my rendition of the sketch. It is a "standard" size card. 

SuppliesSweetheart WOTG kit; D1361 Thank You; Cotton Candy, Baby Pink, White Daisy White & Black CS; Black & Cotton Candy Exclusive Inks; Resist Chipboard Flowers; new pink assortment brads; Black ribbon rounds (retired); Sizzix butterfly embosslet; Sizzix embossing folder; and Martha Stewart border punch.

I have to tell you about the Resist Chipboard.  The pieces I used were from a retired set.  But these are such fun because you just sponge on color and the white color pops!

I hope you will all get a chance to try this challenge!  In the meantime, I hope your Monday was blessed.  I know mine was (thank you Lord for your mercy on a soul like me and thank you St. Anthony--long story for another time)!

Happy SAD (Singles Awareness Day)!

This was a little valentine I helped my granddaughter Hannah make.  She pulled out some glossy paper and wanted to make a valentine for her friend.  So, she picked the ribbon and the colors (I suggested colors that coordinated and Hannah made the final choice).  So, I showed her how to do the VersaMark resist technique.  Anyway, here is what we came up with:

Supplies:  Hollyhock and Black CS & Exclusive Ink (EI); VersaMark; Cranberry and Baby Pink EI; Black Ribbon from Michaels?; Great Impressions Stamp; For Every Occasion stamp set.

Happy Saint Valentine's day to everyone!.  By the way, for me today is also a very special day because it is also St.Cyril's and St. Methodius' feast day.  They are the patron saints of my our church.  They were brothers who seemed to work through more political battles than spiritual battles through their Slavic missions.  Prayer:  Saints Cyril & Methodius, watch over all missionaries but especially those in Slavic countries.  Help those that are in danger in the troubled areas.  Watch over the people you dedicated your lives to.  Amen.
