Mojo Monday #350

Mojo #350 photo Mojo350picA.jpg

Well, summer is in full swing a bit early as the teachers are on strike out here.  Schools are closed, and I sincerely hope both sides are willing to negotiate so things get rectified sooner than later!  Kids have been caught in the middle and it has not been fun to live through, especially since  many of my friends are teachers... 

On a brighter note, I found this fabulous paper from My Little Shoebox at my
LSS, which was the springboard for my card.  Unfortunately, it ended up being pretty much covered up... I pulled the colours from it and added an embossed, chevron background with my new EF, and a pop of turquoise for some colour.  Something seemed to be a miss, so I added the "friend" tab.

All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also 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.

Sweet card and sure to make anyone have a happy day. I like the little "Friend" flag at the bottom.
I do hope that things will resolve quickly there with the teachers etc and sorry you've been put in an uncomfortable position have a lot of teacher friends.

Love these vivid summery colors and the bold font in the sentiment! Wow, sure would be stressful to have a strike near the end of the school year. :-( Hope it gets worked out quickly!
