Mojo 237 card, a current “me ‘n’ my honey photo” and a tidbit of wisdom

 

I surely like this week’s sketch for Mojo Monday 237:

I had fun with it.  I’d been dying to try some of these pretty butterfly cuts I just bought from the Silhouette SD store.  The original butterfly cut is the one which is on it’s own at the top (and then I glittered it a bit) but I monkeyed with the other three, erasing out a few lines and then having them come out of the band in the middle.

The stamp is by Kolette Hall and the designer paper Parasol LILYKATE by Basic Gray.  Gotta love these pretty floral papers which almost make the card in itself. 

I thought I might share a current photo of me and my honey out for lunch yesterday at our favorite Mexican Restaurant!  I usually get pics of everyone else and forget myself.

I’m having my usual - a Chalupa (I always share some shell with my sweetie) and my Mr is having a combo which I know for sure has a tamale included.  (I’m sporting the suit I scored at the thrift store last Thursday.  Laid out an entire $3 for it!)

I’ll leave  you with an inspiring thought for this week as well, something to chew on.

 

Between stimulus and response,

there is a space.

In that space lies our freedom

and our power to choose our response.

In our response lies our growth

and our happiness.
