Merry Monday 199:


Happy Monday all!  I hope you had a super fantastic weekend. Saturday was absolutely gorgeous here, the warmest day we have had in half year (so they say).  We got out into the yard and did some Spring cleanup and had lunch on our front veranda.

This week at Merry Monday, Colleen would like to see FOCAL POINT SENTIMENT on our Christmas cards:




I felt this was the perfect stamp as it also is the same sentiment in the inspiration photo.  I built my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(13) and added a fishtale flag from Blueprints(13).  I heat embossed a Hot Off the Press Christmas Cheer sentiment and smudged around some white chalk. Lastly I added a My Favorite Things Horizontal Stitched Strip and a Reverse Confetti Double Edge Scallop Border.

MFT Blueprints, RC Double Edge Scallop, Merry Monday


I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Simon Says - Anything Goes
