Hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day!

I certainly did!  My annual family Mother's Day luncheon on Saturday was lots of fun.  Four generations of girls and lots of yummy food.  Then on Sunday I lazed around most of the day and then went out to a Mother's Day Dinner Buffet.   Prime rib and cheesecake, I was happy!

But the week-end is over and we are back to Monday.  I love getting up on Mondays!  Don't get me wrong - I don't purposefully get up.  But when I wake up, I don't snuggle back down for just a few more zzzzz's.  Why?  Well, because there's always a new Mojo Monday sketch waiting for me!!!! Here's today's sketch:

When I first started doing challenges, this was the only one I did.  I started my blog just to be able to do Mojo Monday Challenges.  Now I am positively addicted to challenges, but Mojo is still my favorite.  (By the way - I just posted a new winner's badge from Amusing Challenges on my sidebar! Check it out!)

Although my craft room was converted back to a dining room for Saturday, I still managed to make this card for my Godmother's birthday on Wednesday using this week's Mojo Monday 293 sketch:
I used one of my handmade crocheted flowers from my stash on top of the striped scalloped circle, which was embossed with my favorite folder.  I picked up the paper pack at TJMaxx on Saturday when I was shopping for a top to wear on Sunday.  Didn't find a top.  But I did find paper! :>)
