Happy Monday, peeps! It’s time for Lesley’s Merry Monday sketch challenge! Use her sketch every week, and soon you’ll have lots of cards for the Christmas holidays! Here’s our sketch 23:
I finally broke open the pack of Be of Good Cheer DP that I received and I kind of went overboard with it!!!
This is a bit of a departure from my normal style, but I just couldn’t help myself---the prints and colors of this paper are so fun to work with! I used a retired tag image from Christmas Punch, stamped twice; once in Cherry Cobbler and again in Gumball Green, and then cut out the hat and adhered it to the tag. I mounted it on a circular base of Gumball Green and added some cool Gumball Green stitched ribbon and a glimmer brad:
Of course, he had to have some “snow” of Dazzling Diamonds glitter!!! My sentiment is from Four the Holidays, which I am sad to say is retired as well! I hope that you’ll be able to play with us this week over at Always Playing with Paper, which hosts the Merry Monday challenge, and peek at the other creations as well!
I don’t have any Cassidy photos today---but I did snag a few pix of a snapping turtle at my neighbor’s pond. (Sorry, I know that’s not as fun as Cassidy!) Every spring we usually see one; sometimes it comes all the way across our yard, down across our stream, across the road, and eventually makes it to his pond:
As soon as he saw me coming, he plopped in the water so fast, I couldn’t get another shot. Although judging by the grass “skirt”, it may be a “she”!!! Maybe next year! Have a happy week!
