I was not in the mood for playing with paper today! I guess I have just been too tired from a full week. That doesn't, however, mean that I was not in the mood to l@@k at paper! : ) so I sat down at my computer and planned to look at some of my favorite sites. First stop, Mojo Monday!

I saw their challenge this week and without even knowing it would happen that Mojo just started flowing! LOL That is what this terrific site is about! Spreading the inspiration!! (They are very good at what they do!)

Instead of surfing the web I turned my chair around and created this card instead!! I barely wanted to stop to take a picture. My Mojo is moving and I am now IN THE MOOD! Many thanks to the gals at Mojo Monday for a tremendous site! I'm a HUGE fan!!

Thank You card inspired by Love!!

Inspired Thanks!

Inspiration for my cards comes in a variety of ways! It could be something I see in a book or on a table cloth! : ) My card today was inspired by a gift my friend, Barb, gave to me.

I was completely surprised a couple of weeks ago when I got home from my Mother-in-Law's birthday party!! Barb and a "partner in crime", Diane, had come in to the house and set up a huge! surprise in my kitchen : ) Part of the surprise was that it wasn't my birthday! LOL

Barb said I'd looked sad the last time she saw me and wanted to do something special! the gifts were 8 amazing ribbon caddies and some ribbon... ?spools? I'm not sure what you call them but you wrap your loose ribbon on them. I'll include some pictures! : ) (that will be easier than trying to explain! heeheehee) I had all this ribbon stuffed in a drawer! What a blessing my new organizers are! : ) She also brought some deep fried green beans! You have to trust me on this- they are awesome!! a coupon for fresh picked Strawberries (which she delivered two days later! yummmmm). Balloons, flowers and a fan! : ). Isn't Barb amazing!?

ANYWAY! the picture below doesn't show the bouquet of balloons including a sweet Mylar balloon - the inspiration for a thank you card I made for Barb.

How could anyone be sad with friends like these!! I am a very rich girl!! my heart overflows with love for Barb and her "partner in crime" : )

Thank you for visiting my ant hill : )


Surprise! It's not my Birthday!!

Gift from Barb
