Mojo Monday 185

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share this card I made during my Stamping Away weekend!  My did we have fun!  I'll come back soon and edit this post but want to get my card linked up before the link expires.  Here is this week's Mojo Monday sketch:



EDIT:  I recently purchased this Verve stamp set......I couldn't hold out any longer.  Isn't that how it is though?  You see it used constantly and then you need it!    Now I don't know what took me so long......these flowers are gorgeous for paper piecing and that is one of my favorite techniques!



I am so excited to show you all more of what I created this weekend as well as some photos but I'll leave that for another post.  Thanks for stopping by! 

****I also want to thank everyone for visiting my blog lately......what great blog friends!!  I truly appreciate the time you spend to come visit and leave comments.  I have been so busy and I am ashamed to say that I may for the first time, have to hit the "mark all as read" button in my GR.  :(

SO SO beautiful, Amy!!! I love it all! That patterned paper is amazing, and I can see why you all love those pearls so much. Plus, I have never seen that border die -- oh I want that so badly now!!!

I was afraid to try this sketch because it had so many different things on it and I thought it would look busy, but you totally rocked it! It is gorgeous! I love the colors, they are very soft and sophisticated feeling. I also love the flower stamp and of course the pearl accents in the middle.

You know already that I think this card is beautiful!! I love the colors and papers you chose! The border on the bottom is fab too...may need that yet and so mad at myself for not cutting some borders to take with me! Love the pearls in the center too!

This is a set I've had in my 'buy it sometime list' FOREVER as well. You have me sold! What a stunning card! I'm off to do some shopping at Verve!

Gorgeous Amy! I love those beautiful papers you paper pieced with! What a fun weekend you girls must have had! Cherished friends are the best, and it's even more fun when you have ones that have the same love for things as you do!
