Ornamental for Merry Monday

Hello.  I hope you are having a good weekend.

I'm coming in under the wire for Merry Monday...again!

Linda is hosting another inspiration challenge this week.
I was inspired by the greenery, red ribbon and gold.

I'm also taking my snippets of gold foil and ribbon over to 

It's been a busy week!  Our granddaughter was competing in the
State Gymnastic Meet.
She did really well placing 2nd on the balance beam, 8th on the vault
and 9th overall for her division.
She made us proud and so glad we could be there to watch!

We're off to watch Luke's Championship Football game this afternoon.

I'm hoping to catch up some on my commenting after that.

Life is busy.  God is good!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

That gold ornament is so beautiful and the card is lovely. My grands are all pretty grown up but I miss going to soccer, basketball and baseball games, along with dance recitals and gymnastics. I don't miss sitting on bleachers!

Congrats to your adorable GD!!
Your card is a classic beauty!

MaryH said...

Oh my, another stunner. Love the pine branch in the corner, but the golden ornament steals the show on this pretty thing! Love the ribbon idea too. TFS (and your little one is a lovely young lady, as well as being so athletic and talented! Must take after Granma).What a blessing you can be close enough to share in these special times with her. Hugs

Beautiful card Bonnie. That ornament is so pretty in gold. Emmy looks so proud. What a wonderful photo of her. And so fantastic that you and Bruce could be there for her special day of events. Congrats to her ... she did good!! xx

Di said...

What a beautiful card Bonnie - wow that die is a beauty! Love the red, gold and green - a perfect Christmas card. Your little grand daughter looks so sweet - they do love to have their grand parents there to see their achievements. We were lucky enough to time our Summer 2017 trip to Germany to coincide with Mia's Dressage event - I thought she was going to fall off her horse in to coincide with delight when she came 2nd in her little group! Lovely to see you in the Playground too!

That ornament is gorgeous and with so much dimension, Bonnie. The shiny red ribbon really makes a statement. Congratulations on your granddaughter and he wonderful gymnastic performance. Isn't it fun to watch them carry out their passion. I watched a live stream of my granddaughter's robotics competition today and will probably catch a few more rounds tomorrow.
