Love Life

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  This week is a fun one from Wanda that you can easily dress up or down to suit your mood.


Unfortunately I'm still unable to shake my sickness.  Coughing and wheezing seem to be my new all-day companions,   In a rare period of no coughing yesterday I sat down to make a card.  It started with hot gluing one cream flower down in the corner, and that  felt so invigorating that  I just had to keep adding more and more until ALL. THE. THINGS. ended up on my card.  Seriously, I had to make myself stop before the card toppled over!

The sentiment is a favorite from the More than Love stamp set and I edged the circle with a bit of vintage lace trim and added some glass glitter randomly around the edges.  Each layer is sponged with antique linen and vintage photo and distressed lightly with a paper distresser.  The cream flower was a bit too stark, so I colored it with some tattered rose distress stain and adirondack gold paint.  More glass glitter coated a couple of paper leaves I had in the stash and I added tons of paper flowers and glass embellishments a well.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!

  8. This is a shabby chic masterpiece!! Love your glass glitter touches and that amazing floral collage...swoon! The only thing that ever stops a severe cough for me is something with codeine in it. It means a prescription, but no other OTC ever works well it seems.
