Love You Friend

Happy Tuesday! Today's postcard was designed to fit the Mojo Monday Sketch #275 from last week. The challenge is already closed, but projects can be uploaded to photo galleries at any time using the TAG / KEYWORD Mojo275. So do you guys upload to photo galleries and tag your photos for Mojo Monday? I've never done that, but I'm very interested in learning how to do it. Sketches are very tough for me, so I'm trying my best to do the Mojo Monday Sketch challenges and overcome that little hurdle of mine. :)

Here is the Mojo Monday Sketch #275 from last Monday (Jan 7th):

That looks very complicated and overwhelming to me. Don't laugh. Okay, you can laugh. But it really does look HARD! So this is a BIG challenge for me. I looked at several of the entries (you ladies just WOW me!), and for some reason, seeing those made this look more of an obtainable feat.

Here's what I came up with:

I'm not real sure how much freedom we have with the sketches since I've only done a few of these challenges sporadically in the past.


  • A2 size postcard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Mat sizes:
    • Black mat cut @ 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
    • Purple flower mat cut @ 4" x 5 1/4"

    • Pink rose mat cut @ 2 3/8" x 4 3/8"
    • Black mat cut @ 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
    • Black pattern mat cut @ 2 3/8" x 2 3/8"

  1. totally luv your card and I think you nailed the sketch perfectly.
    Me, when I look at a sketch; I see nothing until I see a card made using that sketch and then I think, 'Oh, heck yes, I can do that'. :}

    Have a great day and a better one tomorrow.

  2. Beautiful card and fabulous job on the sketch! Most challenges have wiggle room on sketches as long as you can still see the sketch in your project and you can. Thanks for joining us at Crafting When We Can! Hugs, Robin
