Merry Monday 117


Happy Monday, everyone!  It’s time for another Merry Monday too!  Here’s Deanne’s challenge today:

I am late getting on the sequin bandwagon….sometimes I feel certain fads come around and I need to buy a bunch of stuff…..and then I am stuck with the product for the next ten years, LOL!  I did buy a few of the In Color sequins though…they are so pretty and they look so nice on my vintage tree from Graphic 45:

Since I am gearing up for convention, this was an easy way to create a card…using some cutouts from a piece of DP and adding the sequins, a sentiment from Sweet & Sassy, and some ribbon!


Here’s a closeup of the “ornaments”:


I added a little sequin to the inside, with a sentiment from Amy R Stamps:


Since I am sure you all have waaaay more sequins than I do, I hope you’ll get them out and use them on a card this week, and share it with us at Merry Monday!  Can’t wait to see it!

Since I don’t have a picture of Cassidy today (I won’t see her until I come back from convention), I thought you might like to see a picture of my niece and her new hubby:


A beautiful day, a beautiful bride, a beautiful wedding!
