Happy Monday, everyone! Is it snowing where you are? I think I have seen enough of the white stuff…so glad I don’t have to go anywhere! Today’s Merry Monday challenge is a real sweet one:
I had a lot of ideas for this one, but in the end, decided to dust off a Waltzingmouse set that I haven’t used for a while, and paired it with some plaid DP I got over the Christmas holidays:
I didn’t do any actual stitching, but the images look stitched, and I used a “stitched” mat and tag, along with a little faux button I created by gluing three diecut buttons together!!! I wanted a wee bit of color, so I stamped each “stitched” ornament in Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Riding Hood Red and Crushed Curry:
It’s a really simple design, but I love the country, homespun feel this set imparts! I hope you’ll have fun created a buttony, stitchy Christmas card this week! Share it with us at the Merry Monday challenge and you might win a guest spot! And be sure to check out all the great designs while you’re there!
Yesterday, the Kennett Symphony held a children’s concert and instrument zoo at Lincoln University, which is only a few minutes from our house. It was right during Cassidy’s naptime, so she was a wee bit crabby, but she did very well, especially when she was able to get up close and personal with some of the instruments:
A “baby” piano:
And she actually got a little “toot” out of the trombone!
What a great experience! Enjoy your day!
