Hugs and Kisses

Hello there! It's Mojo time, my friends. It's also the start of another week and I'm hoping it will be a good one. The weekend was riotous, weather wise. Gale force winds, buckets of rain and overnight ice. We woke up to find bits of our neighbour's roof in our garden. Hopefully our roof hasn't travelled anywhere...we'll know when it starts to rain inside!

Enough small talk. I'm here to show you a card I made for my husband's favourite sister-in-law... His only sister-in-law... My baby sister!

The papers are from my stash and I've had them for quite awhile. I think they're
called "Sew Pretty". I'm using stamps by Clearly Besotted.

The bloom and buttons are from the Fancy Florals set. I stamped the flower 
onto cherry CS with VersaMagic Niagra Mist chalk ink and to stamp the 
button I used VersaMagic Sea Breeze.  This card is mail-friendly because 
I'm using all-paper buttons.

The leaves are from Leafy Accents, stamped with VersaColor Sage Green and 
the sentiment is from Many Messages, stamped with VersaColor Scarlet.
I tied a sheer blue bow on the tag.

Inside, I've used the smallest flower from Fancy Florals, stamped with
VersaColor Baby Blue and Scarlet. The sentiment is from Many Messages,
stamped with Versafine Black Onyx. 

You'll find this floral arrangement at these challenges:
