Hi friends!  How was your weekend?  I'd like to say mine was fabulous... after all, it was Valentine's Day, Mark's birthday and my Dad's.  However I had a bad reaction to a new prescription and have spent the past 4 days sick to my stomach and missed all the festivities!  I'm pretty sure Mark had the lamest birthday on record.  Boo!

Anyhow, I finally started to perk up a bit yesterday afternoon (and am hoping the perkiness continues today), so I spent a little time in the studio making a sample for this week's Mojo Monday 333 sketch.  The card uses the Poppy Birthday set from Verve.

I started with the sentiment circle, stamping the poppies all around in soft sky.  Next I ran the Build a Poppy Die Set through in soft sky and then cut some old olive leaves and stamped the coordinating stamps.  I made a little old olive background by repeatedly stamping the have an amazing birthday sentiment, then added some piercing accents, a bit of ribbon from the Signature Ribbon Collection and some polka dot embossed panels.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
