*Mojo Created On Monday*

I know, it's Tuesday now.... but honestly, I truly made this Mojo Monday card on the Monday it was released (Mojo97)! It's shocking, I know. I was watching the Bachelorette when I got a reply email to a message I'd sent to my sister in law earlier in the day. While tidying up my craft space, I found a little something that I thought should have been in the envelope I sent her for her birthday... turns out that I not only didn't send the little something... I didn't send a card. I remember thinking about making her a card, but I have no memory if I mailed it or not.

So, I worked a little, watched a little Bachelorette, worked a little more, watched a little more... and managed to accomplish watching the finale and creating a card.

Now to remember to pop this baby into the mail.

Blonde, I tell ya... I am blonde! LOL!

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Basic Black, Bashful Blue
*Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up! (it's old)
*Images: Amuse
*Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
*Tools: two square punches and my scissors to create the photo corner; Big Shot; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder
*Embellishments: glitter flower unknown; Doodlebug glittered brads

A day without sunshine it looks like today.... and cooler which is a good thing. Don't get me wrong, I love the summer and the heat, but it's nice to get a break from it once in a while.

I'm sure our friend who's been up in our master bedroom/bathroom since yesterday will enjoy some cooler temperatures as well. Just realized how funny that sounds! Quick story... we were going to hire this one company to come out to paint our master suite... but when they didn't return my emails with the questions I had (that was back before our trip to Regina) we decided to go a different direction. Our good friend Chass is unemployed for the summer (she's a school bus driver) and she enjoys painting rooms... so we asked and she said YES! I'd rather pay her than some dork who doesn't know that it's in your business' best interest to answer the questions of potential customers.

She started yesterday and got so much accomplished! She is hoping to be finished today. I took a couple of photos yesterday after the room was cleared out and will take some more later today... and then more again once our new bed frame is delivered later this summer. I promise to share photos. We are SO appreciative of Chass helping us out!
