Merry Monday 127

DSCF5262-001

Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Today, Kathy has a fun bingo challenge for our Merry Monday crafting! 

I chose the left column of “sparkle, die cut and red” for my card today!

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 127 Christmas

I can’t put “red” and “sparkle” together without thinking of SU’s red glimmer paper, so I pulled out my Lil’Inker Jingle Bell and Joy dies and went to work!  I punched out some “sprigs” from Pool Party cardstock with a Martha Stewart punch and adhered them to the top along with a baker’s twine bow:

The Jolly & Joyful Sentiments set works with these dies so well!  I stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana, and then mounted everything on a Lil’Inker stitched mat. I adhered that to a retired piece of Fresh Prints DSP atop a Crumb Cake card base.  I love the big pop of sparkle! 

I hope you’ll play along with our Bingo challenge this week, and be sure to check out all the fun samples from our Design Team!

We went to the Solanco Fair on Friday, and Cassidy really enjoyed herself!  The school’s elementary classes had a pumpkin-decorating contest and Cassidy was fascinated with the candy-decorated one:

Of course, she had to snitch a piece:

And when I asked her to pose next to MY favorite one, Olaf, I could see that little piece of candy corn in her mouth!!!  AND I just noticed she had one in her hand, too!

Enjoy your day!

  10. I always love your cards, they are always so beautiful. But, I can't help but comment how big Cassidy has gotten since I have seen pictures of her on your blog. She has grown so much and is a beautiful little girl. It seems see was just a tiny baby and already is a big girl.
