Y'all are so sweet - all of your comments and emails sent after my most recent post gave me warm fuzzies and did me more good than a year's worth of talk therapy, I swear! I felt the love as if I were Simba and you were Nala, and we were frolicking on the African Pride Lands. Or something like that... er, yeah...
Speaking of feeling the love, I need to send some love to my long-time friend, Lesa, who threw a wonderful alumni meet-and-greet for Sean at her beautiful home in Tulsa. Check out the fabulous (and SINFULLY delicious - truly the BEST tasting cookies I have ever had in my life. They literally melt in your mouth) cookies she sent from the event home to the boys and me:
They still looked (and smelled) lovely on Saturday, so I took them to decorate the President's Box as a couple of dozen fans cheered the Savage Storm on to victory at SOSU's first home football game against Arkansas-Monticello (52-49; it was a squeaker won with a last-second field goal -- phew!).
Anyway, such thoughtfulness surely deserves a handcrafted card, don't you think? I agree. And, why not combine it with my first-in-a-long-time Mojo Monday sample, now that I'm getting back into my stamping groove? Good idea, right? Right! Here's this week's marvelous Mojo Sketch -- #363 -- as rendered by Julee Tilman, herself:
The stamps and dies are from My Favorite Things' Laina Lamb Designs' Geek is Chic collection. Here's a little hint for you when working with small die cuts of different colors of paper that you want to pair together -- use a tiny strip of extra cardstock to adhere them both to like so:

I'll be back soon with something I've colored. I haven't created it yet, but I think I may work on it this afternoon as I'm anxious to see if I still know how to use my Copics properly...
Have a wonderful start to your week, sweet friends!
