In Your Corner

Hi friends!  It's Wednesday and I'm popping in with my Mojo Monday sample for this week.  I had a vision for the card I wanted to make, but just no time until now to dive in and get inky.

I definitely wanted to pair the I'm in your corner sentiment from Just Breathe with the boxing gloves. There's something so powerful about having someone with you in your fight.  You know the minute the bell rings, they'll be there with a pep talk to keep you going.  Over the weekend, one of the boys' 2nd cousins was teaching them how to climb up the slide at our community park.  She was such a little cheerleader... "I know you can do it... look how far you've already come.  Oh wow!  You made it half way, do you think you could just make it this much farther now?  You've already done it once, now you know you can do it and will be able to do it each time!"  Wouldn't it be nice to have a cheerleader like that throughout your day?  I was so impressed with her patience and encouraging spirit! So that was what was on my mind when I made the card.  An uplifting, you can do it, I'm right here anytime you need a break kind of encouraging card.

I've recently been bitten by the gold bug and can't seem to stop embossing everything in gold... the sentiment, the photo corners... a bit of cardstock for the gold mat of my square.  A mishmash of papers came together with a smattering of pumice stone and frayed burlap distress inks.  My favorite chicken wire embossing folder dresses up the background and I added a bit of gold cording and a heart for the strings on the gloves.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have an awesome day!
