Hello!! My sincere apologies!! I don't know where the time has gone! I try to create and... NOTHING!!  No MOJO!! But...I made Angie Hunt a b-day card..finally.  I saw this card from Kittie747 and knew I had to have this Tim Holtz brick wall!
I cut it from Very Vanilla and sponged with the same colors Kittie used, Fired Brick and then Vintage photo inks. I envisioned a vine going up the lattice on the side of a brick building.  I'm not sure I achieved the effect I wanted, but when I place adorable Edwin (#117 from Magnolia-licious, the BEST store for Magnolias!!mini version is in stock) in front of it, I was happy with the results!  I hope you (and Angie) like it too!

I hope I'm remembering correctly that Angie has a little boy. I'll bet he's giving her a special Valentine today!
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!! Dave is taking me out to our favorite restaurant tonight! Yep, even though it's Tuesday! Can't wait!
But...it's of too work right now!
Hugs, cheryl

Cheryl I think you got your MoJo back. This card is adorable. I love that brick wall. I am guessing it's an embossing folder, right? It is spectacular as usual.
thanks so much for sharing.
