Merry Monday July–The Last One!


Hi peeps!  Did you have a great weekend?  I had a lovely day yesterday, spent time with friends and family and DH bought me a new BabyLock sewing machine!  Can’t wait to sit down and play with it!  A new toy!

Today is the final Monday in July and that means that the “Anything Goes” challenge for Merry Monday is almost over!  You can check out all the details at Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper.  There are some AMAZING cards featured there!  The one I am showing today is one we made at my last Christmas card stamp camp.  It’s very simple, but I think the images are delightful for Christmas:

Merry Monday LeAnne Pugliese Artistic Outpost Midwinter Christmas

And here is the inside:


Of course, I couldn’t resist adding glitter to the snow…and I just love that little deer:


The diecut “peace” was cut from Brushed Silver cardstock which had been backed with an adhesive sheet;  it made for an easy “stick-down” without having to use messy glue!  That’s especially helpful when using glitter, so it doesn’t get all over somewhere it’s not supposed to!

So I hope you will be able to help us celebrate Anything Goes---share your project and we can’t wait to see what you create!  Another card for the Christmas stash is always good!

I got some really nice birthday cards but haven’t photographed them yet, so I’ll be sharing them soon!  Thanks to everyone who sent me a card or wished me a happy birthday!  I loved them all!!!

My SIL brought her (only) granddaughter over to visit and Cassidy was smitten!  She just wanted to touch her and hold her!


Truthfully, I think Maggie was more smitten with Cassidy’s dolls!!!


Enjoy your day!

Gorgeous card. Love the image. Lucky you a new sewing machine. I am a sew on paper only kind of girl, but wish I knew more about sewing.

I'll bet the ladies loved doing this card in the Stamp Camp! I'll have to remember the sticky paper trick. What an adorable baby. Almost as pretty as Cassidy!
