Mojo Butterfly

Monday, October 31, 2016
Hi friends! It's Monday again and time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch.  As the last sketch of the month, we're stretching ourselves with a square layout this week.

I'm right in the middle of a lot of things right now... it seems like life is moving at the speed of light and my hamster wheel is having a bit of a time keeping up. Can you relate? Anyhow, right at the forefront this week is prep for Verve's holiday release this Friday. So when I was able to sneak in a few minutes in the studio between breathing treatments for my sick boys, I gravitated to a sentiment from one of this week's new releases that was on my desk.  I love this sentiment and thought it would also make a beautiful birthday card, so that's where I went with it. And that means you get a teeny sneak peek at the title sentiment from a new Christmas set releasing on Friday.  :)

The papers are also from a Christmas collection, since that's the state of my stamp room right now, but I think I made them work, just adding a bit of gesso where needed to obscure a partial Christmas tree image.  Three circle dies, a pennant and a butterfly finished things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you'll swing back by on Wednesday for the first day of Spotlights on our new release!  And if you've got a little time, head on over to the Mojo Monday blog for a look at all the other Mojo designers take on this week's sketch.
