Mojo Monday




Good Monday morning! Are you ready for another Mojo Monday challenge? I sure hope so, because Teresa has a great sketch for us this week!  Check it out!

Verve has such a great variety of stamps and dies to create all kinds of love-filled cards and it's the season for me to play with one of my fave themes - hearts!  I wanted to go with a clean chalkboard look for my sentiment and knew I wanted to use something from the "Stronger Love" set (yikes...I see it's sold out right now!) that has really awesome font combinations.  We live about 15 miles from Staunton, home of the American Shakespeare Theater which was built as a replica of Shakespeare's original theater in London.  I'll attach some photos - inside and out - of the building at the end of my post.  Anyway...my daughter and I attended the play As You Like It on Saturday evening, so I knew I had to go with this Shakespeare sentiment for my Mojo card.  It was also a good chance for me to break out the Heart Quartet die set that I hadn't used yet.


Here is a peek of the inside where you'll see even more of the die cut hearts...


PAPER: Yours Truly by Echo Park, True Black by PTI, Silver glitter CS by SU
INK: Memories Unicorn pigment ink
ACCESSORIES: Heart Quartet dies (Verve), Flourish Trim (Verve), Silver cording, Rhinestone.

Are you still with me?  This post is going on and on, but had to say I'm playing along with the Verve divas and entering their fun "Shimmer and Shine" diva dare theme for the January Inspiration Challenge.  My glittery hearts, rhinestone and shiny silver cording are all elements of shimmer and shine!



Thanks for stopping by...can't wait to see what you create!
