It's Summertime...

and the living is easy!! LOL I wish!! Working 40 hours a week as usual!! friend Lesley left me a message on THIS POST (and I link it because it's currently my favorite card and uses the Up, Up & Away Stamps set from Verve - and we think Mojo Monday, we think Verve!) and basically told me I had to do the Mojo Challenge today, so.....who am I to argue?? Here it is - along with a few other challenges thrown in, of course!

Here's the list!

Several people asked for summer - and what says summer more than the sun, the sand, and a sand castle? Thanks to the Mojo Monday sketch, I even have my yellow beach blanket to lay out on, put on my sunglassse and play in the sand with my pail and shovel!
And here's the rest:
  • The sketch is Mojo Monday.
  • Daring Cardmakers asked for weather
  • Paper Make Up asked for clear - the "sentiment" of "You Really Shine" is stamped on acetate. I would have loved to use Paper Make Up stamps, but I don't have any.

I love it when the challenges line up for me!!

Hey Vickilyn!'

I totally laughed outloud when I read your comment on my SFYTT card!! I was working on my Mojo Card as soon as I walked into the house. I LOVE your card! The sand look and the colours and everything are just perfect for the sketch.
