Merry Monday Challenge Week #61

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! It was absolutely gorgeous here in PA!
I ment to go do some inking of my stamps but Saturday we decided to clean the house, plant our strawberry plants, shop at Walmart and take Miss Gigi for a nice long walk. I was dead tired till 8 pm rolled around. Sunday was a much calmer day. We took Miss Gigi to the Dog Park on the other side of York where it's a huge fenced in area and we can let her off her leash to run & play with all the other small doggies. She LOVES going there every Sunday morning and is she ever played out till we get back home! :)
Anything for our little Gigi!!!
But anyways, I did find my way down to stamp Sunday afternoon. Still working on lots of Christmas things. I'm excited to show you but will wait closer to the holidays.

So, it's Monday again and that means it's time for another sketch from Lesley! This week's layout is so quick & easy and I hope you can hop on over to her blog to see what the other Merry Makers have created this week and play along with us! Before you know it, you will have a nice stack of cards made way before the holidays arrive!

Here we gooooo....

As soon as I seen this sketch I knew what I wanted to make. I used an old Stampin Up die for my large Real Red snowflake. It was so big that I had to trim some off. I then added my next snowflake in Early Espresso by using a Stampin Up Snowflake Punch. The last snowflake was done with a Paper Studio punch in the Champagne Glimmer Paper. I added a gold bead to the center of my trio of snowflakes and hot glued them onto my card. My sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink from the Merry Messages set. I really like this card and might make a few more!

I love your big red and gold snowflake. It really would be easy to make a bunch using this sketch.

Ooh, your Saturday sounds like mine. Got to work in the yard and flower beds after getting a sunny day. Been very cool here..and rainy. Yuck!

Thanks to all of you for letting me be Guest Designer this week.
