The Sky is the Limit

Happy Monday!  It's my birthday today so I'm actually on a little getaway with my hubby, but through the wonders of modern blogger, I've (crossing my fingers it works, since it hasn't the past two Mondays) scheduled this post ahead of time.  It's Monday and that means it's Mojo Monday, and time for a Round or Square sketch.  This week's sketch was designed by Stephanie Kraft.

I went for the square version this month because I was too lazy to pull my Grand Calibur out to cut big enough circles for my images.  Actually, I've decided that I'm a pretty lazy stamper.  So many decisions are made based on how easy it is to get to the item I need!  LOL

Anyhow, this card uses the Splendid collection by Authentique and the adorable Away We Go set from The Cat's Pajamas.  I love this little sentiment, and thought it very fitting for beginning the journey of the next chapter in my life.  I'm truly starting to believe that the sky is the limit and I can accomplish so many of the goals I once thought were out of reach.  Hooray!

Well, I've got to finish packing for our little getaway, so I'll just leave you with the sketch, the enabler's list and a wish that you'll exceed your own expectations today!


Enabler's List:
Stamps:  Away We Go, (TCP)
Paper: Splendid (Authentique), Early Espresso (SU!), Natural White (TCP)
Ink: Jet Black Archival, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress (Ranger), Copic markers
Accessories:  Olive seam binding (TCP),  Sentiment Flags Die (Lil' Inker Designs), buttons, paper distresser, scrapper's floss

And as far as the "lazy stamper" goes...I would love to see what you create if handiness were not a factor! I think your work is pretty darn spectacular...it's hard for me to imagine it getting any better!
