Merry Monday Joy

Merry Monday had a Free For All last month and we had 387 cards come to the gallery! What a wonderful party!  I'm still feeling the joy!




We're back to sketches now and Lesley has a wonderful one to get us back in the swing.



I flipped it and since the sentiment is in my circles, I didn't add another.

I used some snippets for my letters and the circles behind the letters.  And the textured red panel was also a snippet.  So I'm skipping over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. I see that Di featured my Merry Monday card from last week.  Thanks Di.  I'm so glad you liked it!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Lovely Letters Alphabet (retired
Ink:  SU Markers (Real Red, Garden Green)
Paper:  Whisper White, Real Red
Other:  Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon (retired), Textures Plates (retired)

Now I hope you'll check out the rest of the Design Team cards then craft away and join us at Merry Monday.  You know if you blink twice, Christmas will be here!


I'm so glad you could stop by.  I hope your day will be a happy one.

Enjoy!

It's a beauty, Bonnie. I love the way you've done the sentiment...the perfect sketch for it.
Congrats on getting featured with last week's card. I can see why. It is gorgeous.

Di said...

Fabulous Bonnie! Great use of snippets for the sentiment and I adore the bow too.

Not sure if you enter Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge but this week's theme is 'Spread a little joy and love'. It's a bit like my butterfly card - made before you knew about the challenge but would fit so well.

Ha, ha - I'm just off to explore LOTV here :)

Hugs, Di xx
