My Hero

Hi everyone! It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch. Check out the Mojo Blog for all the details. It's also the last day to get your entries in for the Verve Project Parade, so don't delay!

Today is Mr. Verve's (my husband, Mark) birthday. I'm so blessed to share this journey with such a wonderful man. He's my best friend, my #1 cheerleader and an amazing inspiration in my life. It's like after years of darkness, the sun finally turned on the day I met him, and it's been shining ever since. I'd follow him anywhere! Anyhow, I'll stop with the sappiness and get to the card.


I had to shift my panels around a bit to accommodate my stamping, but other than that I stuck to this week's Mojo sketch {Mojo126}. The balloon and clouds are from Up, Up & Away and I paper pieced the balloon and added a little coloring with Copics and some depth and shading with a sponge and some Soft Sky ink. The sentiment is from Thankful Hearts and the stars are punched with papers from the SU! Sale-a-bration paper pack (I'm drawing a black on the name right now). I just love the cloud paper - so fabulous! The ribbon is the new Chocolate Chip Satin from SU! and I added a fiskars border punch to the top and bottom.

What's In It?
Stamps: Up, Up & Away, Thankful Hearts (Verve Stamps)
Paper: SU! Sale-a-bration paper, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Soft Sky (SU!), Onyx Black (Versafine), Copic markers
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon, star punches (SU!), Stardust Stickles, Border punch (Fiskars)

  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARK!!!!! So wonderful to hear you have such a wonderful man to walk through life with :D

    Great card too. This sketch just may be too much for me - those off angle panel kill me (think I"m a bit too anal for them LOL!). Will see if I can get to it - the Olympics are taking over my life for the next two weeks :D

  18. Hi Julee. Love your work and wanted to thank you for your kind words on my card for this weeks challenge. Mojo Monday challenges force me to dig into my inner creativity and I am discovering a new stamper in myself if that makes sense.
