Monday, Monday

Well, I think a relaxing weekend really did me some good!

Cameron was away for the weekend, so it was just the kids and me at home. After putting up our Christmas tree and lights, we went to Winkler on Friday (supper at McDonald's, followed by going to see the new Muppet Movie at the theatre). On Saturday, we decorated the tree and the rest of the house. This has definitely helped to get me more in the Christmas spirit. We also watched a few movies on the couch, read, etc. It was really nice.

I wanted to share a couple of cards that I made a few weeks ago. They're fairly similar, so I thought I'd post them together:


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (sweet blush, smokey shadow), stamps (think big favourites #7, fancy flourishes) & dies (fillable frames #7, mat stack #4, bloom builders #3), button & twine. I can't remember the name of the brand of patterned paper-- it was in my stash & is several years old.


The only difference in this card is that I used a Mat Stack #1 die instead of #4.

Thanks for looking!

These are wonderful cards. I love the smoky shadow and sweet blush together. So striking. And, now I see that I need fillable frames #7!

Two beautiful cards. The pattern paper is very elegant & co-ordinates nicely with the flower. Love your stitching as usual.
