Merry Monday


Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We had a glorious day with a couple of hours sailing yesterday and about 15 minutes after we came home, we had a torrential downpour…came out of nowhere!  So I squeaked in a little bit of stamping time to make my Merry Monday card:


I used the RetroSketches sketch #71 for my card:

and some pretty Melissa Frances papers, a cute little pine cone sticker, and a lovely Waltzingmouse sentiment. 



The final touch was a wee bit of red glimmer paper which brings out the little red sparkles on the pine cone….a bit difficult to see here, but a lovely effect IRL!  It’s Anything Goes at the Merry Monday for the month of July, so be sure to play along….you can use any sketch or technique you like!  Hope to see you there!

Dana & Cassidy went to a parade on Saturday…..all decked out in red, white & blue:



Enjoy your day!


  1. First off Cassidy looks so adorable in the photos. I think she gets cuter every time I see her. Now your card is one of my favorites. I love when you do vintage.

  2. Cassidy's pictures looks vintage. She is so adorable. The lighting is so perfect.
