Merry Monday 82


Happy Monday again, peeps!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  It was a great one for me….got some cleaning & organizing done in my craft room, just so I can mess it up again, LOL!  Lesley has a lovely inspiration challenge for us today – check this out:

So here we go:

].\, lo

I love aqua and red together….especially since SU had some pretty papers from a couple of years ago, of which I got a wee bit extra!  I paired it with the plaid circular image from Kind & Cozy, adding a scallop of Coastal Cabana. My Merry Monday teammate, Loll, is an incredibly talented stamper and a great enabler as well!  I saw some cute sentiment stamps on her blog and my checkbook took a hit because I just had to have some!  I stamped the words in Real Red, then added another scalloped mat and a sparkly snowflake to finish off my simple card.


And here’s the inside

Be sure to check out the awesome creations the Merry Monday design team has stamped this week, and be sure to share yours with us as well!  You can find them all on Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper!
