...Viva La Mojo & Blog Candy

These are a couple of this week's challenge cards that I finally got a chance to work on yesterday while I was at Pam's. I don't have that much spare time anymore since we got this new puppy. She is precious, but she is also alot of work...so I am lucky to get one card/project finished during the day while we are home alone. I am always so excited when someone else gets here to help me with her! LOL!

Here is my submission for Monday's

Julee (Vervegirl) said...

Just gorgeous, girl. Congrats on all the blog success. It's no surprise, because you're AMAZING! These cards are gorgeous. I thought of you today, as there was an article in our Idaho paper (I rarely read the paper, but was at the in-laws waiting for dinner) about the banning of the Warriors' cheerleader bible verse banners. Normally I would have just scrolled on by, but I saw Fort Oglethorpe and had to read on! :)

Debra said...

Big Congratulations! I look forward to see what you are going to share and today was no disappointment! Of course, no day ever is. : ) I especially love the non-traditional use of the teal with the choc chip for fall colors - such a cool combination! These cards are a delightful gift, but blog candy, too? You are so generous! Thank you for the opportunity!
Debra

Michelle said...

What beautiful cards! Your work is truly inspiring. We got a puppy last year and it's a ton of work at first, but enjoy those sweet puppy days while they last. Now that she's over a year old, she's calmed down a lot and it's so nice to go a few hours in between potty breaks. :)

Congrats on all the hits. I've been a follower for a few weeks now.
