Mojo 194 and Moping About :(

Why am I moping? 

I'm moping because my house is emp-teee!  My Mother and Father in Laws left this morning after a nice long 3 week visit.  I always find the first day after a long term influx of company to be disconcerting, not sure what to do and feel kinda lonely.  How bout you? 

So today I was especially glad it is Mojo Monday because I could make a card, and that's always fun.  Specially since my sister was able to join me.  Here's today's sketch:



And my take on it:





I used various papers and then taped them together and trimmed them using a scalloped edge.  The "engaged" letters stickers from EK Success (got these across the border at WalMart - the ONLY thing I bought when I went for a day trip with my parents, and I was in WalMart for a good hour - what's wrong with me?  My Mr. had even given me some fun money)  The charm is from a bracelet I had that broke eons ago so I just snipped it with a cutter and I embellished one of the hearts with silver glitter.  The ribbon is recycled from a card the recipient sent ME a few days ago.  I thought it would be fun to send it back to her. 




Back in a day or two with more iPhone photos and photos from our visit perhaps!

  2. Great job Aunty Barb! I like your paper choices and it is so soft but yet refreshing.
    So to hear you are lonely although i am thinking maybe enjoy the quiet and the emptiness as your life is always so full of stuff and is so crazy busy...you maybe needed a day to your self. I'm just guessing of course :)
