Good afternoon all,

I began by thinking I would do the Mojo Monday challenge....but as you see, I ended up with rectangular everything and not square everything.

I failed my mission. ROFL! I really wanted to do the Mojo thing...but once started with this I just went with it. It took an age to find a nice complementary pad for the image, but am pleased with the Brilliance. Don't know why I didn't look there first!

Have to go retrieve the hubby from hospital tomorrow. I have enjoyed being by myself for the week. (Please don't think I am horrible... The precious personal time between going to town and having only to answer to myself has been totally different but marvellous!) I don't think I have ever been by myself for that length of time, making for an interesting experience. It will be good to have him home, finally...I hope! I have this niggling suspicion that being a man, he is not going to be the best of invalids!

this is a beauty... I love that it is not the traditional Red and Pink... I also do not think you are horrible for liking being alone, I totally know how your feeling.

That is lovely and we all need time for ourselves. Time by ourselves helps us become better mothers, wives, etc.

This is a fab card! So very pretty! And, no, he probably won't be good for you at home :-)

I invariably go away from a sketch...sad, but true. Sometimes it just doesn't work and I love what you did with this. Nice touch with the ribbon, so soft and sweet! Great job!
