Well I will be posting some photos soon of some of the places I have been to in the last few days but for now seeing as it's Monday is my submission to Mojo Monday!!

This is this weeks sketch 157

And this is my card!

Spring couple digistamp by CCdesigns. Nestabilities labels 8 

I used Creative imaginations papers, MS punches & deckle cutter

...distress crackle paint and distress stickles on the heart.

I stitched the card on my sewing machine, blended distress ink on edge of card
and finished off with button embellishments and peeloff.

Just wanted to share with you My creation that I submitted to Lauren Meader and her team at My Time Made Easy.

So it has given me a real boost to try again the next time this call goes out!! Hope you like the card anyway. It was made with My Time Made Easy digital papers and stamps.  x x x
