Merry Monday Week #5

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope your all doing well!! It was a busy but fun weekend here at the Aungst Residence. Saturday, we went to my parent's house to celebrate my older brother, Greg's 52nd birthday. We were there early in the afternoon till late that nite and I was pooped till my head hit the pillow! My Mom planned all these games that we all could play on the Wii and her & my Dad thought up to have prizes and a door prize. Needless to say, Shawn, Kelsey & Ryan all walked away with envelopes with a few bucks in them and then Shawn's name was pulled for the door prize! It was so fun and great to see the whole family having many laughs!

So, as you know, last week Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper chose my card for the Merry Monday Winner Week #3! I was so excited! This week I am Guest Designing for the Merry Monday Week #5 Challenge. Take a look below at Lesley's sketch & my sample for the week!

I wasn't quite sure what to do this week for the challenge. So, I went looking thru my Christmas stash and found these felt holly & berries from Stampin Up! These were a birthday gift from my dear friend, Vicki Burdick a few months back and I never did anything with them because of moving & getting settled into our new home before the holidays. I grabbed my matching Holly Berry Bouquet DSP and it all came together nicely! :)
I hope you like my card and i'd like to Thank Lesley for this opportunity to Guest Design this week!!! I am having ALOT of fun!! :)

Well, after a fun weekend it's time to get started on doing the housework.
