The Lifter of My Head

Happy Monday!  I'm spending the last day of the long weekend with hubby, and am excited for a relaxing day.  Hope y'all have a great one, too!  Since it's the first Monday in July, that means it's CONTEST time over at Mojo Monday again!  Play along this week for your chance to win the Verve set of your choice!  Head on over to the Mojo blog for the sketch and all the details.



For my card, I used the new Psalm 3:3 plain jane and the small butterfly from Blue Skies.  I have some new SU! supplies on the way, and decided it was high time I used some of the {insert embarrassed grin here} unused stuff from my last order.  So I pulled out this Sending Love Specialty paper and some chocolate chip cardstock and went to stampy town.  :)  I embossed the sentiment with Chocolate Chip craft ink and clear embossing powder, then added the flourish from Blue Skies in Pirouette Pink.  The butterfly is stamped on designer paper and cut out and popped up.  I just love these Labels 10 Nestabilities, and had to add some rhinestones to set things off.  I added a few strips of some chocolate ruffled ribbon, then finished off with one rounded corner to complete the feminine look of the card.

Okay, that's all for today!  Hope your day is full of happy!  Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Julee- this card is gorgeous. I love the sentiment. I have got to get motivated to work on your mojo mondays- working outside of the home is quite an adjustment for me. Ugh..............

  12. Julee, I check your blog on a daily basis...because you ALWAYS have such LOVELY creations to share. Today when I checked...I said out loud, "WOW...THAT IS JUST SO SO SO BEAUTIFUL!" I even had my husband take a look! I love the colors you used, the layout, the excellent scripture (I think I've bought almost all your scripture stamps.), the ribbon details, butterflies, bling, corner rounding, and the beautiful paper. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me on a daily basis!
    Many blessings to you!
