More than Chocolate

Monday, January 16, 2017
Hi friends! It's Monday again already and that means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  My son, Trevor, helped me with the sketches this month.  He sat on my lap and told me what shapes to draw and where to draw them.  I think we might have a little sketch master in the making! {grin} When we finished the month's sketches he told me he would help me with February's on another day, he needed a break!

As my boys say, it's been winter for days and days and days around here. With all the snow and rain and freezing temperatures, I felt like I needed a little perking up.  So I chose these fun, vibrant papers from the Fancy Free collection by Pink Paislee.  Each layer is matted in basic gray cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment and the candy hearts from the Chocolate set in grey ink, then colored the candies with copics and die cut the circles.  The Chocolate Word Die  is cut from basic gray cardstock and I finished with a bit of taffeta ribbon and a bow.

It wasn't planned, but I kind of love how the word bubble that catches my eye on the designer paper is the one that says "whatever".  Which is what I can totally imagine Mark saying when he reads this sentiment!  LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Head on over to the Mojo Monday blog to see what the other designers did with this sketch.  We hope you'll play along!

  2. Love the bright colors Julee! This stamp set and matching die is one of my favs! Hope your weather clears up soon, I think I would be going stir crazy by now! Take care!

  3. Sweeet!!! I love your stamps more than chocolate too! Well, they're a close second!

  4. Isn't that why we have children, for free labour? LOL. I'm sure he'll be designing stamps soon enough :). Love the cheekiness and humour in your card today. We are feeling a winter of "days and days and days." Just came off a week of "in" days at school but the weather has warmed up so this week should be outside days! Yay! Is this going to be Mark's Valentine card?! Ox
