Merry Monday 15


It’s Merry Monday time again, and I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s creations last week.  For this week’s card,  I was thrilled to use up some pieces of paper and already-stamped images I had been pushing around on my desk!  Here’s Lesley’s sketch for this week:

As I said, I already had an image printed and colored (it is an old digital image and I have no idea from where I got it, sorry!), so I cut it out and mounted it on a Nestie for today’s sketch:

Merry Monday 15-LeAnne

The white panel is a piece of vellum, embossed with the Snow Burst EF; the papers are from Melissa Frances’ Deck the Halls.  The wide grosgrain ribbon is an old piece from my stash.  I love that this is flat and won’t need extra postage!

I hope you’ll get a head-start on your Christmas cards by participating in Lesley’s challenge!  Be sure to check out her creation, in addition to her guest designers, on her Always Playing with Paper blog!

We did not spend Easter afternoon with my daughter & her family, so I was only able to get some photos of Cassidy at our church fellowship time.  That girl loves her grapes!
