Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! We are still in the winter part of spring and sure could use some warm weather and sunshine. I think it's supposed to get rather cold again this week - boooo.

This week at Merry Monday, Leanne would like us to use a puppy on our Christmas card:




Of course I am a big fan of this challenge. I LOVE puppy dogs!! I love them so much that I thought I mask together three puppers on my card.




I spent the majority of the day colouring this threesome. I am so happy I took the time to bring them to life as they are just the sweetest pups!

#Amazing:





I don't know about you guys, but I am so ready for spring. We just got more snow yesterday. I feel like it's never going to go away!

With that being said, I turn to bright colours this time of year. Bright, cheerful, fun colours.




I created a stencil with the Small Diamond Tile Panel and inked a little Sand ink to add subdued interest.




I then added some scallops with the Double Edge Scallop and stitching to the Stone coloured base (light grey/beige).




Lastly I added #amazing in Wisteria ink and a few hot pink enamel dots. Bright and cheerful even though it is grey outside, my heart is happy now!

















I have created this card for the following challenge:









Cheers all!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!

This week at Merry Monday, Linda would like us to use this inspiration photo:




I was inspired by the greenery, pine cones, and red ribbon.

I really, really wanted to go with a pine cone theme but I realized I only have ONE pine cone stamp set. And it's older then dust =)
