Happy Monday peeps! It's the first Monday of the month, so that means it's contest time over on the Mojo Monday blog! Play along with this week's sketch for a chance to win some shiny new Verve!
This was a super fun and quick card to make, and one of my favorite layouts in a while. It's clean enough to work well for masculine or feminine cards. Plus, if you're like me, you've got a plethora of pretty patterned papers (like the alliteration there? LOL) piling up in your craft room and this sketch lets you USE it! The paper I used today was actually some Thrifty Finds digi paper I printed out over a month ago and haven't had a chance to use yet. I just love the colors and patterns in it and they look so pretty lined up in 1" strips like that. The flower is made from all three sizes from the Hope Blooms set cut out with the Floral Circles Die Set and I split the sentiment up onto two sentiment flags.
Today's life lesson is a practical one. If you've got an iPhone, sync it regularly and enable data wipe and auto lock with a passcode. Mark's iPhone was stolen yesterday when we were at the gym and luckily he had those features enabled so all of his work emails and data are safe from the thief. Unfortunately, he's out a phone, plus all of his contacts and appointments, since he hadn't synced it in quite a while. You hope you never have to use those features, but they sure do give peace of mind when you need them! Okay, that's all for my public service announcement. I've got a mile long list of things to get done, so I better move along. Have a little fun with paper this week, and if you've got time be sure to play around with this week's mojo sketch! Have a fantastic day!
