How does time go so quickly?  It's been ages since I've posted.  Since moving to our little farm, "Gypsy's Pasture", my priorities have been focused on the animals, the homestead, the garden and taking care of the Mister.  BUT, I still love crafting, sewing, card making and all forms of needle art.  I decided it was high time I give card making a try again and especially since one of my favorite inspiration sites for card layouts has posted it's last layout challenge.  I'm going to miss MOJO MONDAY challenges.  Here is my card for the FINAL MOJO MONDAY 500 Challenge.

Julee Tillman, who is responsible for these past 10 years of inspirational Mojo Monday layout challenges, asked if anyone wanted to, to comment about the challenges and what they've meant to them.  For myself, it is the layout that I have the most difficulty with when making a card.  I love combining the stamps, papers, color medium, embellishments.  But when it comes to putting them all together on a card, I always found that the most challenging aspect of card making.  Every Monday Julee and a fresh and often VERY challenging layout.  I have looked forward to each Monday, whether or not I actually participated in making a card, to Julee and her team's creative layout challenges and seeing how all of the participants used that layout in their own creative way.

The sketch (below) is the final Mojo Monday 500 Layout sketch that I used for my card:

Thank you Julee and many thanks to your design team and all of the participants.  I've thoroughly enjoyed following your blog and participating in as many of the challenges as time has allowed me.
Until next time,
