Merry Monday 208:


We had another fabulous weekend at the lake and finally got the boat zipping down the water.  Although it remained windy for the most part, we decided to cut the weekend short.  Sometimes it is hard to come back to the city/reality but to have an extra crafting day softens the blow =)

I love the water - I wish I lived near the ocean, but alas I am a prairie girl.  Next best thing, the lake:



This week at Merry Monday, Sue has chosen CHILDREN'S CUTE/FUN Christmas cards:


Well I considered this challenge to be very easy as I am a child at heart =)  Googly eyes and pom pom noses?  Yes please!

I started my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(13).  I added my googly eyes and pom pom nose to Reverse Confetti's Jolly Holiday and Jolly Holiday Confetti Cuts.  I also used Reverse Confetti's Branch Out Confetti Cuts and Woodgrain Confetti Cuts.  And lastly SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Circles.



I would also like to enter my card into the following challenge:
Freshly Made Sketches

Deanne, I totally adore your reindeer card! So sweet and fun. Love the lake view from the camper... Makes me wish I was in Northern MN at my parents camper but I know I'll be there in less than a month! In the meantime, I'll enjoy the ocean beaches :)
