Sorry for the dark picture.  I didn't get home in time to use natural daylight like I usually do.  For my card I chose to use this wonderful sentiment from More Than Love as it is oh so true.  It's amazing how you come to life when you know you are loved, and how you can deal with what life throws your way much more easily when you have someone who is there for you.   Several other fabulous sentiments in a wonderful mix of Verve fonts along with two heart images complete is wonderful set.

Julee made a gorgeous card using last week's Tall and Skinny Mojo Monday sketch flipped it on its side, and I just loved the look of that orientation and wanted to try it myself.  Kept to clean lines and thanks to a dear friend, I gleefully used my new chicken wire embossing folder - love it!!  The heart is from the Wavy Hearts die set and I crimped it for a bit texture and added a button with a twine bow.
