Mojo Monday



Hello everyone! Get ready to get your mojo flowing with Teresa's great sketch for the new Mojo Monday Challenge!  I am needing a couple of sympathy cards (never fun to make!) for co-workers, so this was a perfect layout to try out some new Memory Box dies.  That qualifies me for Darnell's NBUS challenge to use "never before used schtuff".  I always know I'll never leave her blog without a smile! :-)  I added some texture to the white space by applying Liquitex light modeling paste with a Mini Coffee Splotch stencil by TCW.  The stitched panels are new dies by Lil Inker Designs.  So...my new "schtuff" includes the leafy and stitched dies.  The Verve Forever In Our Hearts stamp set is my 'go to' set for sympathy cards.  Inside, I used the sentiment "May precious
loving memories bring you comfort for today, strength for tomorrow and peace in the days ahead".  A trio of buttons by SU finished off the design.

Sorry you were in need of sympathy cards, but it turned out beautifully. Love the modeling paste on the background and the new leaf diecuts.

I saw your card over at Mojo Monday and loved it. I have such a hard time creating sympathy cards and so I "lifted" your design. If you would like to see what I did with it, it's on my blog at live4scrappin.blogspot.com
