More Merry Monday!


Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a fabulous weekend!  It finally cooled off a bit and it was refreshing to NOT hear my A/C running 24/7!!!  We are almost through July---can you believe it?----and we are still having the “Anything Goes” challenge at Merry Monday!

I saw a lovely challenge at Festive Friday as well, using pink, white and silver:

So here we go:

Merry Monday LeAnne Artistic Outpost Frosty & Friends

I am a wee bit disappointed at the photograph; it really doesn’t capture how cute and sparkly this card is IRL!  The mat and holly leaves are brushed silver cardstock, not flat gray, and the glimmer paper mat and Dazzling Diamonds glitter REALLY shimmer… you’ll just have to take my word for it, okay?   Here’s a little better closeup:


I stamped my sweet wee girl in Smoky Slate and just colored her cheeks and background with some Copics, then mounted her behind a photo frame, cutting out the top of her hat to go over the frame.  She is a cutie, isn’t she?  The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder for some additional shine!

I hope you’ll play along with us this week….the submissions so far have been fabulous!  It’s a wee bit overwhelming…I don’t think I have been able to comment on too many, so hopefully I’ll get over there and leave some love real soon!  You can check them out yourself at Always Playing with Paper…you’ll be sure to be inspired!!

A little Delaware shore sun & fun time for Miss Cassidy (in pink as well!) this weekend:


Enjoy your day!

What a sweetie, both your Miss Cassidy and your image. Love your pretty, curled ribbon, too. It's a precious Christmas creation.

I saw your lovely Christmas card on Always playing with paper Merry Monday - you might also like to enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for July - I'd love to see it there too. x

Your card is stunning! I pinned it to my Christmas board. I just ordered this stamp set. I have made Christmas cards with the image of this sweet girl from the internet for years! So happy to see it in stamp form! :)Jill
