Birthday Wishes

Hi friends!  It's Monday again already and time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  After an entire week of sick kiddos at home, I'm definitely ready to have them spend a little time at school today.  Not only have they been home, but with the wildfires around here, the smoke is so bad we haven't even been able to take them outside.  Poor things (and Mama) are completely stir crazy!  :)

Anyhow, here's my Mojo Monday sample, frenetically made during "rest" time (which is actually more like a 3 ring circus) yesterday.  It uses the Making a Statement set and coordinating Loopy Blooms Die Set. I went old school and used colored cardstock and stamped and sponged backgrounds for my layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have a fabulous start to your week.

Hello Julee: I hope your little kiddos are feeling better and that those fires will be under control soon.
Your card is beautiful, I love how you used this sweet flower image for both panels of the sketch, those red die cut flowers are just the perfect pop of color.
Thank you for sharing at Mojo Monday.

Absolutely lovely, Julee -- you make "old school" look brand new! :) Hope the kiddos had a good week at school and that those forest fires are put out soon.
