Another Merry Monday

Yep, I know it's Thursday.  As much as I want to keep up with this challenge, I seem to have trouble keeping getting it done on Monday.  I think I am a day earlier than last week though.


Lesley, over at Always Playing with Paper, gave us a wonderful sketch for the Merry Monday challenge this week.


I've used a similar sketch before and had to fight the inclination to do the same thing.

I tried a couple of different things with no success.  Then I pulled out an envelope with some UFO pieces left over from last Christmas, saw this ornament and went from there.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Many Merry Messages
Ink:  Basic Black
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Silver and Red Glimmer Paper
Other:  Big Shot, Elegant Lines EF, Simply Scored, Ornament and Boho Blossoms Punches, Basic Rhinestone

It's been another beautiful day in Carolina.  The groundhog predicts 6 more weeks of winter.  I wonder, does that mean 6 more weeks like we've had?  In that case Spring is here!

I'm so glad you stopped by.  Do come again soon.

Enjoy!
