Mojo Monday #327

 photo Mojo327picA.jpg

Welcome to the first Mojo Monday sketch of 2014 and the first Mojo Monday sketch of the  month, which means it's contest week!  For every 50 entries, there will be one winner, and each winner will  be able to select a Verve Stamps set of their choice.  

Moving on from Christmas has brought me to Valentine's Day and the use of one of my favorite shapes - hearts!

Out come my Jotted Heart die which I used to cut out the polka dotted heart.  Then I glued the die cut to some Basic Grey paper and hand cut around it to make a small grey mat.  Used the Banner Bundle die set to create the banner on to which I stamped this fabulously fonted "love" from Love Notes.  The secondary sentiment is from Stronger Love and is stamped on one of the dies from the Flag It die set.  The heart die from the Scalloped Trim Trio set added a little something to the left side.  Some sheer ribbon and touches of bling called it a card.

You can check out all the challenge details over on the Mojo Monday blog and also get a chance to view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples.  Should you wish more details on the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.
 

Kids are back in school today and our lazy, sleep in mornings are no more.  Was a bit of a harsh reality having to get up at 6:30 today LOL!  Sure we will all be dragging a bit as we switch our time clocks, but I am ready to move into 2014 with a vengeance.  I got a TRX for Christmas and will be getting some weights for my birthday later this month and plan to get into the best shape I've been in for a long time :)  The Go Fit Gals plans I have been using are amazing and have provided some excellent work outs and clean eating recipes.  Would highly recommend it to anyone who wants results!  I have worked out for most of my life and this program is one of they best.  If you have any questions about it, just send me an e-mail or check out their site.  If you sign up for any, let them know I sent you ;)   All that to say, I'm going to be a fit and firm mama in her fifties this year :)

Loving this valentine, Marisa. The font on the sentiment is super. Love the polka dot heart, of course, and the bling looks great.

A lovely card! I got up at 5:30 this morning to get back into the routine and it was a bit of a rude awakening. I'll have to check out the Go Fit Gals and see what that is all about.
