Mojo Flashback

If you're looking for my Diva Inspirations Blog Hop card, click HERE.

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for a new month of Mojo Monday!  This week is contest week, which means Verve is sponsoring prizes for up to 7 winners, so be sure to squeeze in a little crafty time this week to play along with my sketch!



This week's sketch was inspired by this card I made a while back.  I love the way it turned out and although I had every intention of making a new card for today, life as a mom to twins kind of took over and I ran out of time.  So look at this flashback with new eyes and if you want to read about how it was made, check out this post.

And big news... we've got 2 new faces joining the Mojo design team!  Be sure to hop on over to Marisa Ritzen and Wanda Cullen's blogs to wish them a warm welcome to the Mojo Monday team!  I just know you'll love seeing their fun takes on the sketches each week. I know I will!!!

In other news, this month is Verve's 5th Anni-VERVE-sary and we're kicking things off with a big sale!


So that means you can pick up the stamps I used on today's card at a great price!  Want to see some more stamps you just might NEED to add to your cart?  Check out the inspiration on our August Diva Inspirations Hop for some fabulous design team projects using Verve stamps and dies.

  13. Hi Julee,

    Your cards are ALWAYS elegant and tasteful with a big dash of flair. I'm a big fan!

    Twins, was that easier in a way? or harder? I'd love to read a post about that! haha! I had twin brothers, they were equally a pain to me as a kid and then a blessing as I grew up enough to know it.

    Have a creative week.
