Mojo Monday #356

 photo Mojo356pic.jpg

It's tall and skinny week over on the Mojo Monday blog.  A great way to switch things up and away from your standard A2 sized card, and Julee has provided yet another fun sketch for us to work with.

I took a few artistic liberties with this week's sketch as I wanted to use this fun peacock image from Moment's Remembered.  Fussy cut the peacock, and layered it on top of a doily with one of the medallions from Peaceful Medallions.  The papers are from MME's The Sweetest Thing.  Added a sentiment tab and some seam binding and called it a card.

All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples.  Should you wish more details on the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.  


Can not believe it is the last week in July!!  Summer is half over and it is going waaaay to quickly!  Hope you've been able to enjoy the summer so far, and if you have never made a Tall and Skinny card, give it a try - they are great fun to make!

Your talent in 'seeing' sketch possibilities is impressive; the results, always outstanding. This is yet further evidence: I wouldn't know where to begin with this sketch, yet you've seen - and translated - in a most stunning fashion. The peacock is ever so gorgeous...Happy sighhhh...

What a pretty card, Marisa! And funny that the sentiment is 'thinking of you', 'cause I AM thinking of you!! Wondering how the new job is going. Bet it is taking some adjustment, and then with working for your hubby too, I'm sure time is short.

You're in my thoughts, my friend!
