Merry Monday 95

DSCF0794

Hello, stampers!  Monday is back….hope you had a good weekend!  It’s time for another Merry Monday…..check out this little retro image:



You can use any animal or bird on your card, but since I had this adorable Scottie image in my Christmas stamp stash, I just had to use him:

I had just-big-enough piece of this older K&Company designer paper to make a CAS note card!  I added my image, which I colored with Copics and matted with a scalloped mat, and to cover up a smudge, I added a little diecut holly:

But you stampers probably never have smudges like I do, right??!!!  Sigh.  Anyway, I hope you play along with us this week…..I am getting quite a stash of Christmas cards, and you can too!  Check out what all the awesome designers came up with at the Merry Monday blog!

Cassidy found a pair of toy glasses in her toybox:

  1. Aww - so cute!!! Love that little Scottie image. I get smudges all the time and usually right when I am finishing up so I have to start all over again! Ugh.

    I may have to find time to play along this week. Things are so crazy that I literally have to carve out time to stamp. ;(

  24. What a great little Scottie dog image. If I had one I would have been encouraged to use him by the inspiration photo. Love the scallop matting and the holly. Mistakes and smudges are just opportunities to embellish!
