Mojo Monday #351

It's time for another fabulous Mojo Monday sketch by Julee.

I adore this paper by Simple Stories which I recently picked up at my LSS.  Such a  fabulous colour combination, and the fact it has flowers makes it all the better!

This wonderful Hello Friend Plain Jane is such a great sentiment - love the large font!  I stamped it on one of the banners from the Banner Bundle die set, added a bit of trim using the heart die from the Scalloped Trim Trio set, and where there are flowers...yes, you know the drill....there has to be a Flutterby butterfly.

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.  


Into week two of summer break, and I am already staying up late reading as schedules are more relaxed and I have more time to do so.  Started off with the long awaited release of Diana Gabaldon's In My Own Heart's Blood, the next book in her Outlander series.  It's been a long four years waiting for this book, and so far it hasn't disappointed.  Can't wait for the TV show of the series scheduled to start in August!  Combine that with reading the Game of Thrones series and my summer reading time is basically spent as they are all 800 plus page books!  However, there is always room on my reading list so if you have a good book you would recommend, I'd love to hear about it.

Also playing along with the current NBUS challenge which is a friendship theme.

Have a fabulous day!

Beautiful card! So well put together!

I'm so loving this card, to the point where 'casing' is calling my name! I discovered some NBUS Verve that really warrants attention! Oh, the Outlander series...I started them years ago and really should go back to re-read and catch up. Romance, adventure, some mystery: she's covered it all. On my 'must read list': The Painted Girls, Girl in Hyacinth Blue, Christine's new novel and, when it's released in August, Louise Penny's latest Inspector Gamache mystery (LOVE her series!!). One more week, then summmer break!!! Hugs~c
