Mojo Monday

I love the sketches from the Mojo Monday blog - this one is especially wonderful.


I just got a new My Mind's Eye paper pad at Michaels earlier this week and used the beautiful papers from it to make my card.  I have always loved blues and yellows together!  Could it be that "true" blues (not the green-toned ones that we've had so much of lately) are coming back?  Sure hope so!

  9. I love these papers too, Lin! Glad we finally have a Michaels here. I purchased this paper pad earlier this year at Archivers; but there are some other great ones to be had! LOL

    Your take on the sketch is just beautiful. You are so good at combining the patterns in just the right way!!

  10. That is such a pretty color combination. I love the true blues, too. They are easier to pair with other colors, I think.

  11. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who lusts after a good blue that doesn't fall into the aqua range. My favorite combo for true blue is to pair it with yellow as you did or with a sand color. I shall have to get busy and make a card using your sketch!TFS
