Merry Monday 63


Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a great weekend….I am still recovering from my yard sale!  Thank goodness DH & DD were there to help! 

Lesley has a fun sketch for us this week!  Check it out:

I pulled out some cute little papers gifted to me by my friend Martha to make my card:


That fun set from last year’s Christmas catalog, Scentsational Season, was a perfect match!  I stamped the mug in Garden Green and added the candy cane in Real Red!  It was mounted on an circle embossed with the Snowburst folder, and embellished with some little hologram stickers:


After adding the banner on the front, I also added a sentiment on the inside along with a couple snowflakes:


I hope you’ll play along with us this week to add to your Christmas card stash!  And make sure you check out what the other designers have created using this sketch at Lesley’s Always Playing with Paper blog!!!


Deep in thought…..complete with all three colors of barrettes that she insists on wearing!  Enjoy your day!
