Merry Monday 107:


Merry Monday all!  I'm not one to wish my life away, but I am so happy last week is over.  I have a feeling this week will be much, much better :)

This week, Katie has chosen to make a sketch (fabulous!) and for us to use it for your card.



I had so much fun last week with gingies, that I just had to use one again this week - I mean, come on - just look at those cheeks!
I used non-traditional colours and papers again, which is one of my favourite things to do.  Though I often wonder if the recipients think I have lost my mind :)
Card Ingredients:
Stamps:  Creative Clip Art Collection Gingerbread Men, Paper Smooches Christmas Sample sentiment
Inks:  Versafine Onyx Black
Design Papers:  MME Happy Day
Cardstock: Recollections
Bits/Bobs: random buttons, American Crafts jute
Tools: Circle Nestie



Don't forget to check out the rest of my teamies super fantastic creations at Merry Monday.

This one is adorable as the gingies last week! Love these fun colors and I'm sure the recipient will consider the fun person it comes from! I hope this week is better than the last!
