Mojo 131

I can't fight the viruses my kids bring home because I have a compromised immune system. May I take this opportunity to say that it sucks!!! I had the stomach flu 2 weeks ago. Now I have a head cold ...again. *sigh* It makes stamping a little challenging when I bend over my work and the dripping starts. {Eeeewwww!!} However, may I say that God is good. I don't absolutely have to work outside my house so that financial ends meet. I would rarely be at work if this was the case. God has provided for me, and I need to learn to rest more in His abundant provision for me!

I don't feel well enough to do much else, so I decided to make another card for the weekend. I feel like I can't really think for myself today, so I decided to use Julee Tilman's mojo sketch for this week. My sugar creek hollow fellow dt member Sarah Bigelow came up with this week's mojo beauty!!! I don't usually play along, but since I'm not working, I'm going to really try to get to more challenges during the week. They are FUN!

Here's what I did with the Mojo 131 sketch;

I ordered a couple of stamp sets from Just Rite when they had their sale a few weeks ago. They arrived a couple of days ago - YAY! Today, I decided to use one of the sets. D'Oh! I don't have the handle for the size stamp I used here. Coulda sworn I did! I laid the stamp on my desk, inked it, and laid the paper on top very gently. Then, I used my mini brayer to apply pressure to the paper and stamp...very gently. It's a technique that works in a pinch like today, but I need to get that handle.

I used nesties to cut everything out, layered it up, and 'Bob's yer Uncle!'

Have a sweet weekend, y'all!
