Mojo 104 and Michelle's Verve Challenge

This card used the Mojo Monday 104 sketch and the Verve Release Challenge by Michelle - a color challenge to use Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip & Mellow Moss. There's no combining of the Verve challenges, so I took the opportunity to combine with the Mojo sketch, which are always fun! I don't think I'll get all of the Verve Challenges done before the deadline on Friday, but I'll have to put in a good effort tonight.

Since I just got my newest Verve order, I was pretty excited to get some ink on them. All stamps were from the set Enjoy. Love that set - and so versatile. You can use them as flowers or butterflies.

Had my first ride in two weeks and what fun...I'm no Beth Underhill or Beezie Madden, but it sure does make me smile!

You know what else makes me smile? Friends! Especially those with chocolate....and especially when that chocolate is Almond Joy! There's a saying in our household "Like Tanis on an Almond Joy" and it goes right along with "Like a fat man on a red smartie" or "Like white on rice" - things that just go together...and that's how it is with me and those darn chocolates that I have such difficulty finding. Well, my friend Amy at My Creative Clutter sent up two bags of mini bars along with the blog candy I'd won (a wonderful bunch of cards) so I was almost over the moon when I got home from Banff on Tuesday night. That, combined with my Taylored Expressions KI August kit and my new Verve stamps - it was almost too much to handle. Fortunately, I managed....but just wanted to give a shout out to the sweetie who really made my night!


  1. Great job on this sketch...I like the sponged effect around the sentiment and the "stitching" around the image! Enjoy your chocolates!

  7. ok, that's it...I'm getting that stamp set after tomorrow's release...I don't know why I passed over it last month...too distracted by Delightful and Delicious!! Love your take on the colour challenge. The brown dp is divine :) Thanks for all the sweet comments on my is so much appreciated :) {insert extra smiles here} I love your addiction to Almond Joy...I love the saying of the sayings my husband says about me when I say something that doesn't come out right is..."Don't worry, I speak 'Moe'."
