I had some difficulty finding my mojo after a tumultuous week and a half of traveling to Ohio following my mother's massive stroke, visiting her in Cleveland Clinic while she survived briefly on a ventilator, then the family decision to stop life support and finally...her trip into eternity. It was a difficult yet peaceful transition thanks to the outpouring of prayers and love from family and friends. I'm ready to get back to some normalcy in my life and that means getting into my stamp room. I used the Mojo Monday sketch with the Color Throwdown Challenge for my card. I struggled with the plum color, but that's why they call them challenges! I added some green stickles to the pumpkin leaves and for some reason, they don't want to show up well. I used YR18 Copic marker to highlight the pumpkins.
