Merry Monday 193:


Good morning all!  Happy Monday to you and I hope you had a great weekend.  Some of you may know that we our beautiful 4 year old puppy Pixie passed away in January.  We knew almost immediately that we had more than enough love in our hearts to get another Chihuahua.

In less than two weeks we are adding this little one to our family.  We have basically flipped the whole house upside down preparing for her arrival.  Saffron will be getting her own room that she will be sharing with her big brother, Peeps.  Needless to say I have created a mess to clean up, which seems to be taking forever to do =)





This week at Merry Monday, Linda would like to see BELLS on our Christmas cards:





I had some fun with this week's card:  bells, polka dots, and sequins - YAY!

I built my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(13), and added Die-namics Vertical Stitched Strips and a thin stitched flag from Blueprints (20).  The bells are a much loved stash item from C.C. Designs (retired), the sentiment is My Favorite Things Jingle All The Way and added a few dots with a My Favorite Things Swiss Dots stencil.




I created this card for the following challenges:

Color Throwdown
















Can You Case It



















As always, do not forget to check out the rest of my teamies' fantastic creations at Merry Monday and come play along too!!!
