Mojo 190 -- Wishing You the Best Day Ever

Hello! It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch (#190).. I can't think of a better way to start off a new week!

This is easily my most used Verve set, Wishing You. I almost always use this set to finish off the insides of my cards. I just love the font and the sentiments are perfect for most occasions. This time I used them on the front of my card. I added a few of my favorite embellishments, including a butterfly that was tatted by SIL, Mary -- ** (please see note at the end of this post). I also added a few ivory pearls to the center (from Pizzazz Aplenty).

Here's a look at the fabulous sketch, courtesy of Debbie:

I hope you will play along with us this week! Please visit the Mojo Monday blog for all the details and to see the wonderful creations by the Mojo Makers! You can also visit their individual blogs for more details:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

** Note: I have received numerous inquiries regarding the tatted embellishments that I have been using on my projects. These are currently not available for purchase. My sister-in-law, Mary, has made these for me in her spare time. She does not have a pattern for the butterflies (she saw pictures of a few and started tatting and adding her own twist to it -- yes, she is that good!). She has no interest in selling these, nor she does not have an online store. We have talked to our cousin, who is very talented, and will be selling some tatted embellishments soon. I will post a link to her store and have some samples when she has them finished. Thank you!
