Mojo 235

Happy Saturday!  I'm still here and trying to get back in the groove of things following vacation.  I had yesterday off due to Good Friday because my kiddos were out of school.  Well by bedtime, I was kiddo'd out!  I'd had enough of little voices saying, "Mommy!"  I love them dearly but I needed some time to craft and "unwind".  LOL  So last evening, I realized that it was Mojo Monday week!  This sketch was just what I needed to get the mojo flowing again!



I did run to my LSS yesterday to pick up something and found these gorgeous papers by lilybeedesign called Buttercup.  Gorgeous spring colors!!!  I used the sketch and added in a butterfly where there is a flower in the sketch........I guess I had butterflies on the brain since my daughter's softball team just picked their new name last night.........The Green Butterflies!!  One note:  I finally got out one of my punches to use!  It's been FOREVER since I'd used them but this one was just perfect!!



Have a great Saturday!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Fabulous take on the Mojo sketch, Amy! Love the colour combo and you know I'm loving the butterflies :) Trusting you are settling in being back - or should I say, harsh reality ;) Sure you had a fabulous time and I"m still jealous LOL!

Blessing to you and your family on this Easter weekend.

Oooo, this is such a pretty card! I love the sweet little butterflies, the banner, and the neat yellow rose paper, what a great take on the sketch..those colors were the perfect choice!

Beautiful, as always, Amy! I just love that pretty sentiment! Happy Easter to you!

Just lovely, Amy! You picked such wonderful spring papers, and those butterflies really bring the sketch to life.
I had to laugh at your comment, because I don't know how many times I've said I'm going to change my name to something other than "Mom"! Sometimes we just need a break--I'm glad you got one!

Know what you mean about needing that mommy time. My kids were off for 10 days during spring break, and near the end I was getting pretty cranky!

Lovely take on the mojo sketch, Amy. :)
