Merry Monday 71

DSCF7424

Happy Monday peeps!  Hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Another sketch from Lesley for your Christmas-card-making pleasure:


I wasn’t quite sure what to do with this…so many possibilities!  In the end, I pretty much stuck to the sketch, adding just a few little extra circles:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 71 Christmas

This is a perfect sketch in which to use up some of those scraps from our ever-growing scrap piles!  These are from LilyBee Designs, as are the background papers.  I originally just had the patterned paper circles, which I sewed down, and it was cute but didn’t really have any pizzazz!  I added some silver glimmer paper circles, along with a star, and that REALLY stepped it up.  It’s a shame you can’t get the full effect here, but it really sparkles IRL!

Hope you can play along with us Merrymakers and add another Christmas card to your stash….Christmas is only 4 months away!!!  And be sure to stop by Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper, to see ALL the cool creations from our talented designers!

We made it through the birthday party yesterday with just a couple little raindrops!  We were at a local park, under a pavilion, so no worries!  Cassidy was a little overwhelmed by the festivities, but I did manage to get a couple pictures and a video (keeping my fingers crossed that it works!!)!!
