Happy Monday, peeps! I made a difficult decision a few weeks ago to step down from two of my design team commitments…Merry Monday as well as the ColourQ. So this week will be my last week participating as a designer for both of those teams! Lesley has been a great friend to me, from way, way back, asking me to participate on the Paper Players and then the Merry Monday…..and although I won’t be on the team, you can be sure I’ll still be playing along!
You may recognize this card, because I posted it on my birthday – but all the other team members posted a birthday card for me! Just another way that proves Lesley is the sweetest thing!!! And how ironic that Lesley chose to have this challenge on my last week! If I had really been on the ball, I would have made another card, but I love this one so much, I am going to show it again:
I embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with a Darice EF called Snowflake Swirl , then sponged it with white craft ink and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I stamped the skaters on vellum in Chocolate Chip ink, then added an Apothecary Accents frame, stamped with snowflakes.
My final addition was a little bit of Crochet Trim lace, with some tags stamped with Christmas words:
Now, this time, for real, you’ll be able to see the beauties that the design team came up with at the Merry Monday blog! And a big thank you to Lesley, the design team, and all my faithful readers and commenters!!! And if you want to see all the details on the card, you can read the original post here.
I spent the weekend at my Paper Players teammate Sandy’s home! What a lovely hostess she was! Here she is with Justin Krieger, in her fabulously-organized craft room:
and here we are with Justin and his friend Mark,after having lunch:
and my new little friend, Oliver:
He was quite enamored with my knitting yarn!
And just in case you were missing Cassidy:
Enjoy your day!
