Mojo Monday

Miracle #1- Tackling a Mojo Monday on the Monday it is revealed.

Miracle #2- Immense panic didn't set in when I saw the circle sketch because I figured I could do the square sketch, lol.

Miracle #3- Julee posted this amazing card on her blog that inspired me to give the circle a try.

Miracle #4- I actually completed the card.

You all know my pity story when it comes to circles. We usually don't get along so well. Therefore, when I first saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch, I pretty much brushed it aside and told myself I would do the square sketch. But then that little nagging voice in the back of my head kept telling me that I had never, not once, made a circle-shaped card before and maybe, just maybe, this might be the perfect opportunity to give it a go.

Darn voice, lol.

But I did it. I conquered my irrational fear of circle-shaped cards (for now) and actually have something half-way decent to show for it! I figured it I was conquering fears, I had might as well pull out some of my much-hoarded, new-favorite dp. Love this stuff! Thank you Doodlebug for creating it! I layered a few circle nesties, added a few buttons and a ribbon and stopped playing with it. I have to admit, that my finished product is pretty close to the image I had in my head. I think my sentiment panel is a little bit too large, but, eh, I cutting myself some slack on this one. I conquered a circle-shaped card!

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. you should no longer be afraid of circles because this card ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

    BTW...don't you just love The Help? It is near the top of my all time favorite books. I thought about the characters for days after finishing the book. My husband had to remind me that it was just a book--LOL!
