Merry Monday Wrapped Up

Good morning and a happy
Merry Monday
to you.

Can you believe it's September already?

How's that Christmas card stash coming?


Lovely Deanne is our hostess this week and what a fun theme.

Who doesn't like a present?


I opted to make the whole card the present!

It gave me an excuse to use some of that ribbon I've been hoarding.
