Birthday Blessings (for) Canada ~ Mojo Monday #300


This week Mojo Monday is celebrating its 300th sketch by offering 30 prizes for participants! Play along with the Mojo Monday 300 sketch and link it up to the Mojo Monday linky entry form and you’ll be in the drawing for some fabulous papercrafting goodies! For all the details, a list of prizes from over 20 different companies and some fabulous samples using the Mojo 300 sketch head on over to the Mojo Monday blog.


My card today celebrates another special day as well, Canada Day!  She is 146 years old (or 29 for the 117th time! LOL).  Knowing my card would have a Canadian flare to it, I chose some red patterned paper and mixed it with some sweet little pink heart paper :)  Out came some of that lovely maple leaf ribbon AND some red sequins to work the trend!  A die cut maple leaf took over the green circle of the sketch and the word Canada was stamped from a Canadian post stamp I have.  The On Occasion frame was inked in real red and I used a birthday sentiment from the same set.  I took the little “from”  from the Merry and Bright set and performed a needed “surgery” to get just the right sentiment :) 

But wait!  We’re not done celebrating!  Julee has a great promotion going on over at the Verve Store using the coupon code: 300MOJO.  How fabulous is that?


I hope your week is starting out in the best way…now that summer holidays have started here, Mondays are just as loved as Fridays :)  LOL  Thanks for visiting!
