Mojo 188 -- Grandma

Hello! It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch (#188).. It's round or square week.. I hope you will join us!

I really wanted to make a round card this week, but I was very limited on time, and this little square card (4.25" x 4.25") came together quicker for me. I used Verve's Love Deepens for my sentiment.. isn't that just the sweetest?! When I saw this for the first time during the new stamp peeks, it brought tears to my eyes.. combine it with Julee's wonderful font selections, this set has become one of my new go-to sets for special females in my life.. :)

This week's sketches are courtesy of Sarah:

  1. Gorgeous card! The beautiful papers remind me of grandmotherly rooms with victorian style wallpaper! :-)

  2. So pretty Stephanie! Love the soft color combo and that beautiful sentiment! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. My oh my this is food for my creative mind and soul. Absolutely faulous. A perfect and gorgeous balance of papers, embellishments and stamps.

    The sentiment touched my heart; my mom doesn't live anymore and my children have never met their grandmother. But they do know her; through all the stories told by me, my husband and my brothers and sisters. And that sentiment is o so true........
    It wasn't my intention to write a lot about me; but this card really touched me. If I made you feel awkward through my apologies...

  4. This is such a sweet sentiment, and your card is LOVELY!

  5. love the simplistic elegance of this card stephanie-any mom would love to get this card on her special day!!

  6. Gorgeous. The vellum is a wonderful accent piece to the pretty papers and card.

  7. WOW Stephanie!!! Amazing card and even more wonderful sentiment!!! LOVE that colored vellum!!!! I've seen you use it to such effect, now I am seriously considering getting some!!! Beautiful work!
