Merry Monday 118:


Good morning all!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Did I mention that Mondays make me sad, and that I wish it were Saturday again?  Well it's true =)

The very best thing about Mondays is..  Merry Monday of course!

This week at Merry Monday, Lori has chosen the theme of using buttons and ribbon on your card.


I went with some non-traditional colours this time around (not unusual for me at all).  These lil snowmen are having so much fun that I wanted them to be the focus of my card.  Aren't they just the cutest????

2014 Christmas Card Count = 27

A real quick post here.....

Okay, yes, more feathers :)

I use them because they are rather gender neutral.  The sequins....  maybe not so much :)



I created this card for the following challenge:
Poppy Sketches

Curtain Call (can you say *wow* amazing prizes!)


Have a super fantastic weekend - cheers!

Good morning all!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend. 

This week at Merry Monday, it's my turn to chose a theme.  I couldn't resist using sequins!!!



I had a lot of fun with this card and used *oh just a couple* sequins.  It was a rather easy card to make as I had the idea in my head for months.  All I needed were my trusty sequins and some glue and off I went, sticking one sequin at a time.

Merry Monday 116:


Happy Monday all!  I do hope you were able to enjoy your weekend.  It rained here everyday but was mostly sunny, so we can't complain - though we did get *poured* on while building the deck yesterday.  There were several tornado touchdowns in neighbouring towns, but thankfully there were no deaths (that I know of).






Enough babbling =)

This week at Merry Monday, LeAnne has chosen the theme shades of green and white (neutrals welcome) card.



I decorated my little tree with sequins (squeal), added some stitching, and viola!  A rather simple card to put together (although it took me a while to come up with the layout, but is the norm for me).

Happy Saturday all!  I hope you have been enjoying your weekend so far.  I was able to pop into my craft room today because the storm clouds came blowing in. 

I am using my *trusty* feathers again with a splash of sequins and stitching (more of my favourite things!!)




I created this card for the following challenges:
Less is More - earth tones

CASology


Fusion - I used the sketch (but flipped it upside down)  =)

Enjoy your weekend - cheers!!!

Merry Monday 115:


Happy Monday all!  Another rainy day here (enter sad, sad face here).  But on the bright side, I am off this week - now that I can handle!!

This week at Merry Monday, Kristie has chosen the theme of an all white card.



All white cards are really challenging for myself.  If it weren't for challenges like this, I would never make them.

I de-embossed 'til the cows came home with Nestabilities and my score board.

Good morning all!  I hope you have been enjoying your week so far.  We had a bit of sun yesterday and at this point it doesn't matter how cold or windy it is, all that matters are the rays of the sun.  People are desperate here for a little vitamin D  =)

I know, I know:  quit complaining about the weather.  But really, it's the only thing that's interesting in my life.  Seriously.

Well I am glad *that* is out of the way.  Today I am sharing a graduation card.  I didn't want anything traditional so I went with a modern/old school look.  Of course while rummaging through my stash I realized I really had NOTHING for this card.  I was lucky I found this "Congratulations" sentiment, and there was no way I had a "Grad" sentiment so I dusted off my trusty printer.




I created this card for the following challenge:
Poppy Sketches - sketch and polka dots


That's it for me today.  Have a great Thursday - cheers!

What's that I see?  Could it be Mr. Sun poking his head out??  It's been so long, I don't really remember what the sun looks like.  The good news is that the forecast for the rest of the week is more rain.  Every. dang. day.  *insert sarcasm* *insert grouchy face*

With that said, I better just enjoy the sun while it lasts :)

Today I am sharing a card that is cheerful and fun - reminds of Summer!  I heat embossed my Wplus9 Fanciful Feathers stamp set and added a touch of pizzazz with some sequins.




I created this card for the following challenges:
Runway Inspired



Have a super wonderful day - cheers!

Merry Monday 114:

Uhhgggg - another rainy weekend.  Someone please make it stop!

This week at Merry Monday, Katie has chosen the theme of using sparkle, shimmer or shine on your card.

I did something a little different and tried to make a masculine Christmas card.  My husband says I succeeded :)

I used some old chipboard letters, including a "Z" and a "Q", flipped the "Z" on it's side and filed down the tail on the "Q" and viola!  I have an "N" and an "O".  Added some glitter and adhered to my card.  I also glittered some cork to add a bit of interest.

I was able to spend the day in my craft room as the rain just won't quit.  It has been raining for over a week now and let me tell you, we are all getting rather sick of it.  So depressing!

I created a fun and cheerful card, taking a retro throwback and inked up my Clearly Besotted Fresh Flowers sentiment stamp.



I created this card for the following challenges:

The Friday Mashup - speech bubble


The Paper Players


Clearly Besotted - anything goes


Enjoy the rest of your weekend - cheers!!!

Merry Monday 113:

Happy Monday to you all.  It has been a rather miserable weekend, nothing but rain, cold, and gloom.  I do hope the sun makes an appearance this week!

I also haven't been able to spend much time in my craft room lately (insert SAD face here) as we were getting ready for a garage/yard sale.  Made a couple of bucks, almost enough to pay off my most recent Sephora purchase (I have an obsession with cosmetics, that and many other things).

This week, Kathy has chosen the theme of using pink, white, and silver on your card.



I had SO much fun with this card.  I inked, then misted a Hero Arts scenic stamp with water, and placed it on watercolour paper.  I did all that work, then covered it was vellum LOL.  I also *sassed* my card up with a heat embossed Paper Smooches sentiment.



I created this card for the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland - scene
Paper Smooches SPARKS - anything goes

Merry Monday all! 

This week, Karren has chosen the theme of using a Santa hat on your card.


I thought I would try the angle layout that seems to be rather trendy right now, so happy I tried it!
I went with super traditional colours and am happy how my Santa hat card turned out :)

 


I created this card for the following challenge(s):
Jingle Belles - red and green
