Mojo Challenge #91




Loved the Mojo Challenge for this Monday, June 15th found here . I was giving up stamping, mainly because life has been just so busy. I had already cleaned out a good portion of my stamping room when our Granddaughters came over to stay last week. Avery could have cared less, since she's only 7 weeks old, but Ainsley had a total breakdown! "Stamps, stamps, stamps???" "Grandma, where's our stamps???" Needless to say, Ainsley and I worked furiously to get some stamps out and put them back on the shelves. She is a craft fanatic and I guess I didn't realize how much she loved spending time in "our" room, creating so many different things. Well, now that I've been brought back to my senses, by a 2 year old, I figured I might as well create again. I got this fabulous stamp set, Violets by Flourishes, from Stamper's Dream, owned by Michelle Rodgers. I HIGHLY recommend her store to everyone, the ordering is flawless and the service is exceptional!

Used Tombows and brush to color the images, all paper is SU. Ribbon and buttons are just something I had on hand. Since I did the mojo challenge, I always try to tweak the same image and make a second card. Below the Mojo challenge card is what I came up with.

Thank you, my little Ainsley, for telling Grandma that this is not only important to you, but to me too! I forgot how relaxing creating is!
