Uplifting Mojo

I've been enjoying the lazy summer days, and being able to create more often. Not having to get kids from school, to after school activities, and homework, has really opened up some free time! I made this card for someone who's been really sick a lot lately. He keeps landing in the hospital, and DR's are having a hard time figuring out what exactly is the problem. I figured it would be nice to send a little bit of encouragement to him. Being this is for a dude, so I went easy on the embellies. I paper pieced my tree, and hot air balloon. I'm trying to use up some of my stash of papers, so used my Basic Grey's June Bug pack.


I really fell in love with Verve Stamp set that they recently released called Blue Skies. It has some wonderful sentiments, and several grabbed me when I first saw this set. I purchased it right away! I want to cut one of the sentiments out with my cricut and vinyl and put it on my wall. I'm saying, I really love that set! I used the blue skies are coming your way sentiment because I thought it went perfectly with the hot air balloon from their Up, Up and Away set. I sponged the background to look like skies, but I guess I used too soft of blues, cuz ya can't tell in the photo! I played along with the sketch at Mojo Monday 149.


Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies: Verve stamps, Basic Grey paper, nesties,

I love the Up, Up and Away set. You certainly have done a fantastic job bringing it to lie with your wonderful paper piecing. The sentiment is perfect with this image, and wonderful for your friend.
