Getting my Diva On in a Mojolicious Way

This month's Verve Get Your Diva On challenge was Pretty Purse Plastic...being inspired by gift cards! Man, that Maureen is a genius =) Using the Michaels gift card and the Mojo Monday Sketch #199, I created this card before we head out for the last Harry Potter movie *tear*

Did our 12K taper run this morning and next week I'll miss the first 18K run to enjoy the 100K Tour de l'Alberta bike ride, but I'll be back the following week to give 18kms a try. Today, however, we were able to cheer on the people who participated in our clinic's goal race and what a proud moment for so many!

Have a great week!


  1. oh, I'm so glad you played along!! I wasn't sure how this challenge would go over...I thought it was a neat idea and "different." Love that little label and gorgeous twine :) I know what you mean about the last Harry Potter...maybe that's why I'm delaying going :( It was a great tale!!

  2. This is GORGEOUS Tanny!! LOVE your take on the gift card! What a stunning, elegant card. And let me tell you, I love the twine - what a fabby detail! This is AH-MAZING!!!
    I haven't seen the last HP yet…soon!!! I do love the series, but like Maureen, I'm delaying it :)

  3. oooh, you did a fabulous job using that Mike's GC, Tanny!! Love the colour combo and the way you stamped the flourish on the black with the white. The twine is a fabulous touch! You rocked this one, girl :)

    We just finished VBS so I have had a very low key weekend LOL! 200 kids running around is a lot of energy and noise at times. Many of us volunteer moms wished we had that type of energy still LOL! Was thrilled that both my kids were working there this year too - they are too old to go so they can now work as assistants. A fabulous week with lots of great memories.

    Hey, we are heading out your way July 23 - Aug 2nd. Hitting Calgary and Edmonton. Should be in Edmonton on the 23rd (driving straight through so a long 12 hours of driving) so we don't have to do an overnight. Would have pushed for the overnight in Kamloops if Maureen had been in town, but she is off gallivanting at the PTi swaree (sp?) LOL! Not sure of our schedule just yet other than the Wave Pool at the West Ed Mall. Probably in Edmonton until the 26th then down to Calgary and heading to Lake Athabasca over the long weekend if the weather cooperates. Any good scrapbooking stores in Edmonton I can hit if time permits?!

  4. This is such a total home run! You NAILED it, the photo and the sketch too. Crazy awesome you are... :) That twine bow is perfection too!
