Merry Monday 194:

Good morning all!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  I spent the weekend cleaning and crafting.  One is my favourite thing to do, and the other, not so much =)

Here are some updated photos of Saffron, only FIVE more days until we get to bring her home!  Don't you just love that bottom right photo - I love that smile.  We are SO excited!




This week at Merry Monday, Lori would like to see a TROPICAL theme on our Christmas cards:



This was a real struggle for me.  I looked for tropical birds, seashells, palm trees... anything I could throw a Santa hat onto.  Nope.  Nothing.  I also looked for tropical papers.  Nope.  Nothing there either.  I finally came up with this.  A hibiscus ornament.  Done.  Phew - it only took all day to create, but I did it nonetheless!!

I built my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(13), and the hibiscus flower and die cut are from My Favorite Things Tropical Sensations (retired). The sentiment is computer generated as I needed SOME kind of tropical say…

Hi all!  Happy Wednesday to you.  Can you believe next week is March??  Where has the year gone in such a hurry!?!  Don't get me wrong, I am embracing March, as the beginning of the year has been pretty crappy, but March, I think it is going to be the turnaround month!

It's time to have some fun with SugarPea Designs today!

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…

Fusion - Pretty in Pink

Happy Thursday all!  It has been a crazy busy week.  Even though Monday was a holiday, the week seems to be dragging on.  and on.

We have a fantastic new FUSION challenge for you. 

I used the sketch but I was also inspired by the soft pink and patterns of those pretty pillows.
I built my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(13) and added a Die-namics Horizontal Stitched Strip and Reverse Confetti Class Act Confetti Cuts.  I also used SugarPea Designs Heart Journal Card SugarCuts and a pierced tag from SugarPea Designs Gift Tag SugarCuts.  The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti Fancy Words Confetti Cuts and SugarPea Designs Prehistoric Pals.

Merry Monday 192:

Good morning all!  Happy Monday to you and I hope you had a great weekend. It is Family Day here so I have an opportunity to get some more Spring cleaning done before going back to work on Tuesday.  I always seem to have grandiose ideas but never enough time to get anything completed.

This week at Merry Monday, Bonnie would like to see BERRIES on our Christmas cards:



I built my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(13), added Reverse Confetti Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts, and SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Circles Sugar Cuts.  The sentiment strip is from My Favorite Things Blueprints (21) and stamped with Reverse Confetti Jolly Holiday.  I also heat embossed Hero Arts Under the Mistletoe and gave it a couple of purple berries.



I also created this card for the following challenges:
