Cherish

Hi friends!  The weekend flew by and it's Monday again already.  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  I enjoyed a little bit of downtime and am looking forward to relaxing my schedule a bit in the coming weeks as all work and no play has made Julee a very dull (and exhausted) girl.  LOL

Since it's Monday, that means there's a new Mojo Monday sketch over on the Mojo blog.  Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created as inspiration with the sketch, then give it a go yourself to start your week off with a little creativity!


For my card I used the newly released Wings of Love set and the gorgeous Devotion papers from Creative Imaginations.  The winged heart is stamped onto a Nestabilities Circle, then I paper pieced the heart and stamped a little cherish banner across it, before adding diamond stickles to the wings to make them sparkle.  I used a little flourish die to mimic a little arrow, then finished off with an embossing folder on the bottom layer, a border punch and two types of ribbon.  Pretty simple, but classy.

That's all from me today.  Have a fantastic start to your week!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
