Merry Monday 191:


Good morning all!  Happy Monday to you and I hope you had a great weekend.  I did all sorts of fun things this weekend:  vacuuming, washing floors, laundry...

This week at Merry Monday, Kristie would like to see a CHALKBOARD technique on our Christmas cards:




I will be honest, I have never tried the chalkboard technique before.  I know, I know, welcome to 2 years ago, right?  I was a little worried when I sat down to begin this card, but you know what??  A little chalk will do the trick.  I think other crafters use white ink to do the smudges, but I just bought a huge box of chalk that was looking to be used.  Problem solved.  I would definitely try this technique again =)


I built my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(13) and added a fishtale flag from Blueprints(13).  I heat embossed a Hot Off the Press Christmas Cheer sentiment and smudged around some white chalk.  Lastly I added Paper Smooches Christmas Words 2 wise dies.




As always, do not forget to check out the rest of my teamies' fantastic creations at Merry Monday and come play along too!!!

It's been a whirl wind of a week, but tomorrow is Friday!  Yeah for Friday!

I built my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(21), then added stitched strips from Blueprints (2).  I also used SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Circles Sugar Cuts and pierced circles from MFT Blueprints (21).  The heat embossed sentiment is from My Favorite Things Thanks So Very Much.

Fusion Paper Flowers:

Happy Thursday all!  I hope the week has been going well for all of you.

I used the sketch but I was also inspired by the colour and textures of hearts from the photo.

I started my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints and then added SugarPea Designs Coffee To Go Cup and Coffee Words Sugar Cuts.  The sentiment is from SugarPea Designs Espresso Yourself.

Card Concept - Sweet Hearts

Happy Wednesday to you!  Can you believe we are already into February!?!

We have another super fun challenge for you at The Card Concept.  





I was inspired by the flowers, love, and colours!  I am on the shabby chic design team, and sometimes it's nice to blur the "style" lines a bit, as this is more "shabby chic" with a bit of "classy and elegant."  Don't forget you can always combine styles too to be a bit more unique!




I also created this card for the following challenge:

Merry Monday 190:


Good morning all! I can't say I am sad to see January go, it was certainly not my favourite month.  But I would like to say that I learnt a few good positive things about myself and my husband.  And with that I know we can concur and do anything together!!

This week at Merry Monday, Kathie would like to see SANTA on our Christmas cards:





I built my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(13), then added labels from Blueprints (13).  I also used SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Circles and Gift Tag Sugar Cuts.  The little snowman and sentiments are from My Favorite Things MSTN Christmas Cuteness and Die-namics MSTN Christmas Cutness.

I went with fun and simply-ish on this one.  And there is something so striking about yellow and grey together.

Merry Monday 189:


Good morning all!  I am not going to lie, last week was terrible.  Our four year old Chihuahua passed away.  She was the life our of house and she could make you smile just by coming in the room.

We miss you every day Pixie. We love you!!



This week at Merry Monday, Debbie would like to see ONE LAYER Christmas cards:




If you know my style, you know I LOVE layers.  Lots of layers.  So it took me a while to set aside all of my dies and just go bare bones.  And do you see??!  No embellishments of any sorts!  Yeah me!

I used Hero Arts Under the Mistletoe and dusted off my Copics to give the mistletoe a bit of colour.
