Roses

 
I've been away from my blog for a few days visiting with my son and his little four year old. They came to visit last Wednesday and left this morning. We had so much fun and found a lot of adventures to keep us on the go. You have to keep those little ones busy...REALLY. :-) Maybe I'll show a few photos of our adventures soon.
 
 
I used the Mojo Monday sketch for my card and will enter it into their challenge this week:
 
 
 



 
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this week is Anything Goes and I'm going there with my card.
 
Also, I will enter my card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery for August. I used one of their stamps for my card...Just Because set and cut it with an Inspired by Stamping die--Fancy Label Dies I.

Fabulous use of the Mojo sketch. Just love that bright pink and lovely frame around the sentiment. I know ALL about having to keep the little ones busy!! My son had two speeds - go and sleep and still does today LOL!

Beautiful card, love the mix of pretty DPs you used. Bet it's a LOT quieter without a 4 year old wrecking round, they're such good fun at that age though :) ... and yes, we'd love to see some pics!

Wonderful use of the sketch, Benzi, and I love your combination of papers! I have that paper with the roses on it and have rarely used it. I think I'm hoarding it. :-D

This is gorgeous! Love the colors and papers you used. I'm in the process of making my MOJO card and hope it comes out half as pretty as yours. Actually, I just hope I get it done and uploaded...lol. I'm leaving on Thursday for a trip to NJ to visit my brother.

Glad you had a nice visit with your family. Hope you all didn't get too much rain.
