Mojo Monday on Saturday

The surgery is over and everything went well.  I was lucky enough to recieve a picture via email of father and son assembling the LEGO cars.  Hopefully he will be up and around soon making those cars zoom across the floor!

Today's project I call "Mojo Monday on Saturday".  Sad, isn't it?  I guess my life is not my own sometimes!  A big THANKS to the ladies at Mojo Monday for this wonderful sketch. 

The butterfly I used is from a retired nature set but don't let that deter you!  We have lots of new sets with FANTASTIC butterflies!  How about the dragonfly in Nature's Nest?  Or the butterflies in Garden Whimsy?  And our Flight of the Butterfly is on my Wish List ... it's so perfect!  I just got our Butterfly Punch that coordinates with that set so you can expect to see more winged things from me!  I could go on with more suggested sets but let me get back to todays post.

The butterfly was stamped on Watercolor Paper with Jet Black Stazon ink.  I used Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue to add color to the wings with an Aquapainter.  Glitter brought in a bit of sparkle and the button/yarn added some whimsy.  The papers are all from our Sweet Pea package available now in our Occasions Mini catalog (see my link on the left) as is the greeting from Well Scripted.  Other colors used here are Chocolate Chip and Bermuda Bay.  The Scallop Trim punch was FREE with our Sale-A-Bration event!

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.  Check in again soon.  I have a class next weekend so I'll be busy getting projects ready and would love to share them with you!
