Merry Monday 29


Happy Monday, peeps!  Time for another Merry Monday sketch from Lesley:

I was uber-lazy in making this card, as I already had this image printed out and “filed” in my “Vintage Christmas” folder….so I put it to use:

Merry Monday 29 - LeAnne

I stamped my background with SU’s Music Notes wheel and an image from Crafty Secrets, then added my panels after punching the snowflake border and backing them with SU’s new Champagne Glimmer paper!  So pretty!  I hope you can play along with this fun sketch too!  Lots of possibilities with those panels and main image!  Be sure to come see what the other designers have created as well!


Cassidy’s new doll stroller needed some TLC, so I got out my stash of safety pins, which she immediately wanted to play with:




It never ceases to amaze me at what occupies her!!!


  1. Ahhh, this is a gorgoeus card, LeAnne! Love the vintage image all dressed up with those beautiful details you added. I just can't get enough of that Champagne Glimmer Paper...swoon!! Love Cassidy's photos, too. Who needs all those toys when safety pins are so intriguing? Lol! Happy Monday! :)

  2. Love your vintage Santa card! You inspired me to make a card of my own for this challenge! It's great to see kids using their imaginations to keep themselves occupied.

  3. What a beautiful card! Love the vintage Santa image!

  6. Awww LeAnne, you do vintage so perfectly! Love this Santa image and your punched snowflake panels! Your ribbon/bow and the glitter paper finishes it off nicely! Have I said that I love this card??!! Beautiful as always!
