Hey everyone! It’s Monday---back to work, but also back to Merry Mondays, where we make a Christmas card a week! Here’s Lesley’s lovely sketch:
I finally broke down and purchased this beautiful Christmas set, Bells and Boughs, and put it to use right away with this card:
I stamped and lightly colored my own background and paired it with some DP from Melissa Frances, then stamped, watercolored and fussy-cut my bells:
I added a Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon along with a little sentiment from To You and Yours (ret) stamped on More Mustard, and there, I added another card to my stash! I sure hope that this sketch will inspire you, if you haven’t already, to get started on your Christmas cards! Be sure to stop by the Always Playing with Paper blog to see ALL the Christmas goodness the designers are sharing this week!
We had a busy weekend of activity! One thing we did was go to my nephew’s high school graduation party. Cassidy was all decked out in a new outfit! Here she is upon arrival at our house:
And then in the stroller, a short walk to my brother’s, and she was out like a shot, headed straight for the sandbox! We did lots of other stuff this weekend, but I’ll share that later!
