Friday Mojo

Hi friends!  Happy Friday.  Today I'm popping in with a card I made for this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  My boys have been super sick all week and home from school, so this card was made in 5 minutes each morning over the course of the entire week!  It's really the only tangible thing I have to show for the week, so I'm blogging it.  LOL The boys are improving finally, but we're still doing breathing treatments every 4 hours around the clock. Hopefully they'll be good enough for school on Monday, because Mama needs a break!  :)

The stamps are from the Boo to You set and I pulled out my favorite Halloween papers from the Mischievous line.  I embossed in white on black, then rubbed a little white ink with my fingers to give the chalkboard effect, then decided to add the Happy Halloween strip with a coordinating blue paper.  I stenciled on a bit of tumbled glass with a burlap stencil over the background paper to draw in some of the blue color.  I accented with bitty rhinestones, liquid pearls and a lot of distressing.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful start to your weekend.

  3. What a super card Julee! The host are awesome! So sorry to hear that both boys are sick again! If it gives you hope in anyway, my son had asthma ( onset by illness) when he was younger and I felt he lived on his became a permanent fixture in our home. One year he missed like 45 days of school however he out grew it by middle school. We are not sure if playing a wind instrument (Saxophone) helped, but this momma thinks so. The nebulizer never come out again. So, my will get better.... or sign those boys up for music lessons! LOL ;)
