Every Minute

Hi Friends! Hope you've had a wonderful Wednesday. I don't want to keep you long, so I'll get right to it. I've got a Mojo Monday (Mojo214) card to share with you today:


I need to do more distressing. It's really my favorite technique when I'm making a card.

This is a birthday card for my brother, and he's a year younger than me, so I think it's okay to call him an "Old Timer." :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great one!!!
