*Cutting it Close*

The MojoMonday sketch has been in my To Do Folder since this past Monday... I kept looking at the sketch and had no idea what I wanted to do with it.

The Mojo just wasn't flowing.

I've sat here for hours looking at that sketch, not knowing what to do.  The collection of cards for the challenge ends this evening.....

This afternoon I forced myself to do something with it while watching Telemiracle (way to go, Saskatchewan....  $4.6 Million raised in 20 hours!!!  Second highest total in the telethon's 35 year history!)  Telemiracle has been a part of my life since I was 5 years old as my parents were a part of the original group of Kinsmen and Kinettes who organized this province wide telethon.  It made me sad to watch this year, knowing that this is the first year ever that my Mom has missed.  She would normally have called when the broadcast was over, to tell me how well they did.  I have made a donation for the last several years, and this year I made my donation in memory of my parents.

Anyway....  back to the card....  I have been writing down colour combinations I've liked from cards on other blogs and I used one of those combinations for this card.

Very nice!! I also want to play, but I don't think I'll even have enough time to complete it and eneter it.

Thanks for sharing about Telemiracle! I grew up watching but haven't seen it in 10 years since I moved to BC. Glad to see that the people of Saskatchewan are still giving to this wonderful cause. When I was a kid my favorite part was seeing Bob McGrath (from Sesame Street). It was such a neat thing that people from shows we watched out of the States would take the time to come to our little province :)
