Merry Monday 77


Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a good weekend.  We went to DH’s 40th HS reunion!  I didn’t know too many people but he had a blast, so that’s all that matters!  It was a beautiful weekend, too, so that was an added bonus! 

Lesley’s inspiration for today’s Merry Monday challenge is a real cutie:

Cute, cute, cute!  So many ways to be inspired!  I chose to use those sweet little gingerbread men on my card today:

I am wishing I had used Garden Green instead of Glorious Green for my dark green, but I am not going to change it now, LOL!  I used this week’s sketch 27  from Fab Friday for my layout:

and here’s the inside:


Cute, fun & easy!  Hope you’ll play along with us….I am sure you’ll have fun with the colors and inspiration photo!  Can’t wait to see what you create!

Over the weekend, Dana took Cassidy to Steppingstone Farm Museum in Havre de Grace, MD.  (One of these days, I’ll get there too!)  Here’s a picture of Cassidy on a 1952 Farmall tractor, which will make both her daddy and great-granddaddy very happy!!!:


Enjoy your day!
