Here Comes The Sun

I jumped on the chance to get this awesome digi set from Verve when it came out this spring. One of the great sentiments was a favourite Beatles song and when I went to make a retirement card for a very special lady I knew just what to do. I love putting a sunburst card together and am very satisfied with the effect! I put the sentiment through my Minc to tie in with some of the gold foil paper as well. I am linking up with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to use patterned paper.
Paper - Happy Times, Lucy, Dotty For You patterned paper; Desert Sand, White Daisy cardstock (CTMH);
Digi Stamps - Rise and Shine (Verve); Dies - Stitched Circles (SSS).

Farewell Mojo

I am sad to see the farewell over at Mojo Monday - I will miss playing along with it! Thanks for a fun challenge, Julee! Here is my card using some of my favourite Verve sets (although there are SO many I love). I am also linking up with the "masculine" challenge over at both the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Stamps - Better Together, Strong Anchor (Verve);

With this post I thought I would also look back at both my first time ever playing along with Mojo Monday and my favourite card that I have made for the challenge:

I am also going to take the set to my classroom and let my students use it for their Father's Day cards since they will be building their projects this year :). I am linking up with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of "anything goes".
