❅❅ Merry Monday: 'tis the season ❅❅



Happy Monday!

The month is quickly racing by, don't you think?

We're up to Merry Monday #59!


Check out the sketch:


Ovals challenge me.  I was set to go 'old school' and use my Coluzzle since I have the oval template.  Um, where is my Coluzzle knife...gah, not good because I lost the cap a long time ago.  I'm still on the hunt for that thing but in the meantime Spellbinders to the rescue!


The patterned paper is Martha (thanks Cali Ivy!).  Can you see the 'merry' in the middle of the red ornament?  For the smaller ornament I used a dictionary page, yes, I tried to include as much of the merry definition as I could.


I tried to capture a shot of the card so you could see the frosted acetate base.  I love the look but it is a pill to photog.

I am building quite the collection of wood veneers so I'm trying to use them on a regular basis.  This one happens to have a SRM sticker on it.

Make sure you check out the talented ladies over at Merry Monday:


A big shout out to Lesley and the Merry Monday Design Team for having me this month!  I truly enjoyed myself!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
