Merry Monday 73

DSCF7572

Happy Monday, everyone!  It’s Merry Monday time, and there’s a wee bit of a change!  Lesley will be offering an inspiration challenge as well as a “club” style challenge!  Check out all the details on her blog, Always Playing with Paper!  We hope you’ll play along!  And here’s the challenge for this week:

This is swoon-worthy to me!  I just LOVE this….I couldn’t decide WHAT to do, there were so many beautiful inspirations in this one photo!  Since I was short on time, I went with a simple ever-favorite Christmas tree:

LeAnne Pugliese Wee Inklings Merry Monday 73 W 9 Pretty Patches

This ribbon has been knocking around in my ribbon box for a long time!  I am so happy to finally put it to use!  I added some rickrack (I see crookedly, too) and a sweet little diecut tree and heart from W+9 Designs:

The sentiments are from the same set:

I love this country-style creation!  What will you create?  Can’t wait to see—share it with us at Always Playing with Paper!  And be sure to check out the new rules, too!

Here’s a quick little pic of Cassidy “reading” to her mommy’s teddy bear:
