Five Blog Awards and Mojo Monday! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Before I get to my Mojo Monday card, I must say.....

Good Lord! This must have been "Blog Award Weekend" in Scrapbooking Heaven! I have been honored with five of these awards from some uber-talented ladies: Leslie, Elissa, Iona, Christina and Liz! The best thing about this is that I am meeting some new friends who have been visiting my blog....now I can visit theirs in return!!! Happy happy joy joy. Gals, thank you SOOO much! Hmmm.......I have just visited all of your blogs and cannot post a comment to any of them. What is going on? Anyone know? Hmmmm.. They are all blogspot (blogger), as is mine. Hmmmmm...

Anyway.....the rules for this one are:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
Whew. I hope I will be able to comment on these 15 fab blogs to let them know that I have an award for them!!!!! Here goes (in no particular order...tee hee)
5. Lisa
10. Penny
12. Kelly
13. Lucy
15. Paula

Whew! Now, there's a bunch of talented ladies!!!!! I hope you enjoy the award as much as I have :-)

Now, on to my card for the Mojo Monday sketch. I discovered this skitch challenge three weeks ago and since I am OCD (self-diagnosed - tee hee), I will have to do it every week! Groan.

The little pink design is the sketch (duh). I love these tall cards! I made my first one a couple of weeks ago and posted it on this blog. I like the fact that it fits into a standard business-sized envelope, as I have tons of those. Woohoo!

I used CTMH's Whoops-a-Daisy paper for my adaptation of this sketch. I pulled out an old TLC stamp - don't ask me the name of the set, I am clueless. But I just love this frazzled gal! The sentiment says "Things are bad. Send chocolate." Tee hee. Love it!!! I also used our White Daisy ricrac (FREE TODAY - check HERE), some Stickease and a big ol' heart brad from OTC, I think.
How was your Monday? I am getting ready to warm up some leftovers (grumbling belly ;-) and watch the Bachelorette. What an easy evening! After kitty litter and trash.........sigh.
I hope you enjoy the card. And thanks again for visiting my blog, leaving your uplifting comments.....and super-thanks for the five awards!
Sweet dreams,

I think your card is precious. Have you heard from anyone else who has this blog comment issue? I have only heard a few people that have run into it but no one has come up with a cause or a solution that I know of.
