Happy Monday, Happy Memorial Day to all of you here in the states! John and I marched in our Memorial Day parade in our little town on Saturday and it was a wonderful experience….very moving as we listened to the 21-gun salute and thought about the sacrifices so many have made for our freedom! I hope you are having a great holiday as well! But now it’s time for another Merry Monday sketch! Here’s Lesley’s sketch for this week; I hope you’ll be able to play along and get some more Christmas cards for your stash!
I chose a vintage theme again today with a Santa silhouette image and some pretty, softly-colored Melissa Frances papers with images reminiscent of holidays from the 1950s!!
I chose to cut my vertical panel with SU’s Adorning Accents Edgelits…I think it makes an interesting accent with the green paper peeking out from behind! Santa is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and the sentiment is stamped right on the DP with Always Artichoke. I also stamped the background of the circle with the Linen background stamp to continue with the fabric theme of the houndstooth check paper. Some pearls and ribbon were added for a finish! As always, if you have questions, feel free to shoot me an email!
Now be sure to scurry over to Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper, to see what the other designers have made with this cute sketch, and to share what YOU create!!! Thanks for visiting today, and be sure to come back tomorrow for the ColourQ challenge!
It was SO hot this weekend, my DD got out the sprinkler! I wonder how much water she was able to get in her little watering can?!
