Taking Back My "Mojo"

I've been SO incredibly busy lately that I've started to feel like I'm "losing myself" in being so overwhelmed.  So, whe I saw the sketch over at Mojo Mondays, I made a decision to "take back my mojo" and enter this challenge with something a little more "me".

I made this Birthday card for a dear friend named, Cindi.  She is a police officer here in Las Vegas (as is my hubby), and we've known her for almost as long as we've been here in Vegas (22 years).  She's always been there for us, and I want to let her know how loved she is - on her birthday, and always.

I just thought this sketch was really cute, and when I use October Afternoon products, I always love the outcome.  Their products are one of my most favorite of all.

I'm also entering this Birthday card in the weekly challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ.  Their challenge is to create a Birthday card in honor of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Since I made a birthday card for a special friend for whom I thank God often, I am entering the card in their challenge.  You can read about this amazing blog and challenge by clicking here:
