Enjoy Life! { Feel the Mojo! }

It's MONDAY! And honestly, I was not feelin' the cardmaking mojo tonight! That is, until I surfed on over to one of my favorite blogs ~ Poetic Artistry and saw this wonderful sketch that Julee created for "Mojo Monday." How did she know that this was just the inspiration I needed?!

Once I saw the sketch, it didn't take me long to create this card because I knew which paper I wanted to use. It is "Dried Flowers" by SandyLion, layered onto Stampin Up Close to Cocoa.

The sentiment is from an acrylic set called "Greetings Squares" by Impression Obsession. I've stamped it on a piece of the same patterned paper and punched it out with the 1-1/2" circle, layered with the scalloped circle. Added some zig-zag stitching, the ribbon, a couple brads...and wala!

I'm late posting a card tonight because I needed to bake some goodies for Boss's Day tomorrow. I got it in my head to "decorate" my bars by writing "Happy Boss's Day Kevin!" with frosting. I don't know what came over me to do this, but let me tell you I DON'T have cake decorating mojo tonight! :) Next time I'll know to leave well enough alone! And, don't even ask for a photo!!! :) Luckily, the guys at work will eat anything! :)

Have a fantastic week everyone and thanks for stopping by today! Smiles 2 U, Pam :)

Quote for Today ~

"Higher Purpose"

People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
