Merry Monday 141:



Good morning all!   I do hope you enjoyed your weekend.  I have been rather sore lately.  I am thankful that it's been a while since my shoulders have been bothering me, so I guess I am due =)

With that being said, I have been stubborn and I am trying to ignore the pain by crafting.  Is it working?  No.  Is it making my shoulders worse?  Yes.  But crafting helps the soul and I am up for that!!


This week at Merry Monday, Katie has chosen the theme of using CRITTERS on your card.


I knew straight away which critter I was going to use and went from there (of course it's from Reverse Confetti - you know, the store I am always raving about).

I started with Reverse Confetti Quirky Cuties Marley Moose (and sentiment too! in Onyx Black VersaFine).  I coloured Marley with Prismacolor Premier pencils and blended with Speedball Mona Lisa Oderless Paint Thinner (100% mineral spirits).

 I added Reverse Confetti Triple CheviesTag Me, Office Edges, and Circle 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts using Carta Bella Bundled Up paper collection.   I finished the card off with some stitching, American Crafts twine, and Doodlebug and MME enamel dots.

I created this card for the following challenges:

Reverse Confetti January SFYYT


Simon Says - anything NEW (lots of new stash on this one!)



As always, don't forget to check out the rest of my teamies' super fantastic creations at Merry Monday and enjoy the rest of the holidays!  Cheers and a Merry Christmas!
